Leave your shoes at the door, these bohemian hotels pride themselves on no-frills elegance. Amenities may not include television or WiFi, but two minutes in a hammock with views of unspoilt beaches or jungle treetops and you’ll be in technology-free bliss. These are bohemian hotels to holiday in this year.

San Giorgio, Mykonos, Greece

Minimalist interiors reflect San Giorgio’s focus on life’s simple pleasures. Holistic interior design and Cycladic architecture are paired with private beaches and gardens, resulting in this idyllic Grecian paradise. Differing from other party-centric Mykonos hotels, San Giorgio serves vitamin-packed smoothies and a wide variety of plant-based meals made with fresh produce.

Mojave Sands, California, US

In the middle of California’s Joshua Tree, this Moroccan-inspired boutique hotel proves that back-to-basics holidaying has never been more appealing. Record players spinning vinyls provide the soundtrack to your day, while interiors boast Mojave rugs and vintage globes. In the evening, soak in an outdoor bathtub before gathering around a firepit to watch the sunset across the desert.

Hotel Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico

On Oaxaca’s sandy coastline, a cactus-lined entrance leads the way to 16 private cabanas. Thatched ceilings, wooden floors and woven chairs make up the interior of sleek Hotel Escondido, while outside a swimming pool (olympic-sized, of course) has never looked so inviting. Each bungalow comes with a private plunge pool and ocean views. Doze off in a hammock after a day spent drinking too much mezcal and awake in time for an evening barbecue on the beach.

Riad Jardin Secret, Marrakech, Morocco

This pared-back hotel advocates a whole-hearted return to nature. Rooms are television free, but that’s fine considering hours could be spent staring at the ornate, hand-painted ceilings and Moroccan crafts, mosaics and furnishings. Wander round the hotel’s garden and admire the marble fountains and stained-glass windows in the central courtyard. In the morning, head to the hotel’s restaurant, billed to have produced the first vegan menu in the city. Don’t forget to snap a picture before you begin – the breakfast spread has graced the Instagram feed of many influencers.

Buena Vista Surf Club, Playa Maderas, Nicaragua

This jungle eco-lodge sits on the balmy beach of Playa Maderas. Awake to the sound of birds chirping and howler monkeys chattering; each cabana offers views across the sea or of lush jungle greenery. Spend days lazing on the sand, surfing, doing yoga classes on the sundeck, or spotting turtles along the beachfront.

Nômade, Tulum, Mexico

Thatched roofs, outdoor showers and colourful rugs have given this hotel its bohemian label. Perch on Moroccan poufs and drink tea with fellow sun-seeking guests before taking part in spiritual workshops arranged by the hotel. Afterwards, kick back on the beach with a good book.

Bambu Indah, Bali, Indonesia

Innovative design and bamboo architecture combine to form the unique houses in this eco-resort. Opt for the Copper House and unwind in an outdoor copper bathtub under the moonlight or choose The Tents if you fancy sleeping perched on a cliff edge, overlooking the treetops and Ayung River valley. Bali’s spiritual centre has never seemed so tranquil.
