Nicolas Malleville + Coqui Coqui

Hot male model Nicolas Malleville is more than just a pretty face. Apparently, beyond flaunting his looks in ad campaigns the likes of Paul Smith, Tod's and Burberry, this handsome hunk from Argentina is also a smart business man, most notably for his mini hotel empire, Coqui Coqui in Mexico. Surprised eh?

Just five years in the making, his brainchild, Coqui Coqui located in the Yucatán Peninsula, includes three chic hotels and spas, as well as a perfumery, a café and a store. One of the resort, Coqui Coqui Tulum is a quiet oasis of tranquility and rustic beauty. Beautifully decorated with Mexican, Asian and European influences, the eco friendly resort is unpretentious and nonchalant. Resembling a private home more than a hotel:-) It’s also the kind of place that feels a million miles away from civilization.

With an interest in plants and nature, Nicolas dabbles in his own perfumery creating unique scents that bedazzle the senses and a spa to match. He also has a shop selling scarves, baskets, ropes, hats and housewares as well as a cafe where he decked out with 500-year-old tiles.

His style is impeccable, his charm is natural. From the way he dresses (a wrinkled shirt, leather strap sandals from the local area and his sexy facial hair) to his savvy business sense, he is truly an inspiration. Nicolas is prove that you can have in all, looks and a career while enjoying life as you move along.

Enjoy the pictures, the beautiful interiors has already tantalised the travel appetite in me:-)
