May I proudly present Nikki Style, the exciting next chapter in our Nikki Beach story. The best things in life grow and, if we’re lucky enough, the evolution takes us on a wonderful journey of discovery. This is certainly true of Nikki Beach, and this first edition of our redesigned magazine represents yet another new beginning for us. I would never have imagined 20 years after opening the first Nikki Beach in Miami in 1998, that I would be introducing a flagship product in our 20th anniversary year with Nikki Style, as well as a brand new beach club in Barbados. The year 2018 marks two tremendous decades of Nikki Beach glamor, fashion, relaxation and parties. I can say with complete confidence we have lived our philosophy to the fullest and truly celebrated life. With new beginnings come moments of inevitable reflection, and for me that takes me back to how it all

began. Nikki Beach was opened to celebrate the life of my daughter Nicole, who sadly died at age 18; and the brand’s growth symbolizes the years she has tragically missed out on. I keep the wonderful memories of an amazing young woman, and add to them with new experiences and memories made at Nikki Beach clubs and resorts all over the world. Nikki Style magazine is an extension of our ever-growing brand and a tribute to my beautiful daughter. I always say, even though you’re growing up, you should never stop having fun and enjoying life, and we’re here to facilitate that! Thanks for growing with us!

When you drop the name ‘Nikki Beach’ to anyone that’s well-traveled, they instantly associate it with glamorous events, chic beach vibes, music, fashion and fine dining. The brand has 14 locations across 11 countries and is famous for its plush ambience and high-flying clientele. However, not many know the real reason for the launch of the first Nikki Beach in 1998. In 1997, Nicole Penrod was only 18 years old when she was tragically killed in a car crash. A year after Nicole’s death, her father Jack (the entrepreneur credited with reviving Miami Beach’s flagging social scene in the 1980s) decided to celebrate his daughter’s life by creating Nikki Beach — a beach club for South Beach’s Bohemian community. Since then, it’s grown into a global brand with charitable and philanthropic endeavors at its core to support communities in need. “Nikki Beach was born to celebrate the life of my daughter Nicole,” explains Jack. “We didn’t have any plans for a global brand. However, the magic between our family concept and our customers created a demand. It was then that we decided to strategically expand Nikki Beach worldwide, while keeping the core message behind the brand (a celebration of life) by ensuring that each location combined the elements of everything that Nicole loved – music, dining, entertainment, fashion, film and art – into one.”

In the treasure trove that is the Caribbean, Saint Barthélemy — or Saint Barth as it’s more fondly known — is an exquisite jewel. Its blend of French urban flair with lush tropical landscape is mesmerizingly unique and attracts people from all over the world. Peaked mountains, isolated beaches, powder-soft sand, windswept cliffs, scrubby green hills and flowering gardens bursting with giant hibiscus — it’s a paradise island with a captivating and sparkling soul.

nikki beach

Saint Barth was originally called Ouanalao by its indigenous inhabitants, known as the Arawaks. In 1493, Columbus “discovered” Saint Barth and named the island after his brother, Bartolomeo Commander Poincy of Malta.

Sandy shores, fragrant frangipanis, & turquoise bays dotted with a myriad of sailboats, Saint Barth is paradise rediscovered Whether sipping cocktails with sophisticated party people or diving with sharks and exploring the reefs, you’ll quickly see that it’s a destination with more riches than most ever realize. Saint Barthelemy, casually known as Saint Barts or Saint Barth, was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493, who later named the island in honor of his brother, Bartolomeo.  It’s the stunning pearl of the Antilles in the Caribbean Sea, and is a chic blend of Caribbean charm and European sophistication.  Boutique hotels, mega yachts, luxury-label shopping, private villas and silky beaches, you’ll never want to leave! Water sports from windsurfing and scuba-diving to snorkeling and jet-skiing, sailing and deep-sea fishing are all available across the island and when you’re done, the lively beach strips filled with restaurants at Saint Jean will help you refuel.

Saint Jean Bay

Saint Jean has two beaches, separated by the Eden Rock Hotel. Locally, it’s known as Baie de Saint Jean, and is the center for watersports and athletic activities on the island.

The pretty village of Saint Jean is a popular tourist spot with busy restaurants, posh hotels and shops and boasts one of the island’s liveliest beaches — Saint Jean Bay. It’s a popular beach for catching up with friends and is the home of Nikki Beach Saint Barth, where the service is topnotch and the views are stunning. Various celebrations take place throughout the day and when the party cools down, the chill out vibes take hold. Gustavia is the capital of Saint Barth and does a fabulous role at the island’s helm. Lined with chic boutiques, duty-free shops, gourmet restaurants, and art galleries, it’s

an enchanting place to take a walk. The routes along the Quai de la République are just perfect for aimless strolls any time of day and if hunger pangs kick in, stop off at the ‘mini port’ for great food. Hiking along the rough, raw and wild coastline is a must.  Start  from Grand Fond and head towards the natural pools — maps are available and the trail is well signposted. The hike showcases the rugged, rocky coastline and the views are simply beautiful. Keep your eyes peeled for tiny, deserted beaches, many of which can be reached via natural staircases. Many of the reef-protected beaches have little surf, meaning they are good for swimming.

Island escape

Along with Anguilla, Dog Island and Saint Martin, Saint Barth is part of a group of islands that lies upon the western edge of a flat bank of soundings composed chiefly of shells, sand, and coral, making it a true exotic island get-away.

The majority of beaches remain undiscovered by tourists, which is odd given the gorgeous views...

They are often secluded, favored on Sundays by island families and are seldom busy. The majority of beaches remain undiscovered by tourists, which is odd given the gorgeous views. Reach the natural pools and you’ll be glad you hiked. One of the best beaches in Saint Barth has to be Colombier Beach, which can only be reached by walking (there are two trails, either 20 or 30-minutes long) or by boat. It’s a cove-tucked beach on the tip of the island but do make sure you wear walking shoes if you’re planning the trip. For those feeling a little brave, Saline Beach is one of the most famous beaches, mostly due to the fact it’s an ostensibly prohibited topless/nude stretch. Shopping is the ‘done’ thing in Saint Barth and the best bit? It’s a duty-free port. The range of shops is wide and varied, from a shaded table on the side of the road to exquisitelyperfect window displays showcasing the likes of Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Chopard, Bulgari and Cartier among others. The high-end shops are mainly in Gustavia, followed by a sprinkling of big name and local brands in Saint Jean, although you’ll need more than a single afternoon if retail therapy is your thing.

When to go

The glamorous island of Saint Barth is one of the Caribbean’s top beach destinations, thanks to immaculate strips of sand and ethereal turquoise waters. The island gets more than 300 sunny days on average a year, yet despite limited rain, there is still plenty of vegetation. The west coast is drier with

Take me to church

The island has several noteable church structures: the first is the Bell Tower, built in 1799 (the church was destroyed at one point and now a bell sits in place of the clock). Also of note are the Église Anglicane de Gustavia, built in 1855, and the Ancien Presbytère de l’église Catholique de Gustavia, built in 1822.

shrubs and cacti, and the east coast greener with more tropical vegetation, including many varieties of floral species. It’s a volcanic island without any rivers, so fresh water comes from a desalination plant or large cisterns built into villas and hotels to collect rainwater. Saint Barth and the surrounding islands are a biodiverse, underwater menagerie with more than 183 different species of fish, 54 varieties of coral, and 60 types of sea sponges. With this in mind, a trip to Saint Barth will almost always include a few days with good weather, no matter what time of year you come.

Today’s Saint Barth culture revolves around an appreciation for the finer things in life. Special events throughout the year honor traditional holidays, but the biggest celebrations are for art, music and film, as well as boat races, fishing contests and other sporting events. From the Caribbean Soccer Stars matches — think big celebrity players in shorts — to the Fête de la Musique in June and the Family Festival, which runs from late July to mid-August, the island celebrates all summer long. A series of guest DJs and pool parties take place around the island and the Fêtes des Quartiers du Nord is

Hôtel Le Toiny first opened doors on November 1, 1992 and it remains one of the island’s most famous hotels today. In 2015, the hotel was acquired by current owners, Charlie and Mandie Vere Nicoll, who began a multi-million dollar renovation process. The beaches nearby offer something for everyone from rocky stretches at Anse de Toiny and Anse de Grand Fond (popular with surfers due to the high waves), to the calmer Salines or Gouveneur.

Properties Saint Barth The Caribbean luxury real estate market is seeing hopeful signs of improvement thanks to booming tourism, price stabilization and plenty of investment opportunities. Major markets are looking attractive again for investors, as thriving tourism has boosted consumer confidence in the region and average resale price of luxury homes leveled off, according to Knight Frank. Saint Barth recorded steady sales in recent years, due in part to the weakness of its currency, the euro. Buyers purchasing a home in US dollars have seen an effective discount of 21% compared with three years ago, due solely to currency rates. Buyers from the USA, France and the UK are the top three groups, with price tags ranging from US$3million to US$5million. Experience the luxury of a villa in Saint Barth and enjoy your morning coffee with a stunning view over the red roofs of the villas to the sea beyond, cooling off in your private pool after an afternoon of shopping or invigorating ocean swimming. Luxury retreats litter the mountains with coastline properties few and far between. It’s a hilly island where flat beach frontage is a rarity, meaning many people opt for homes built into the mountains for added seclusion and privacy. That being said, there are some excellent options if you have your heart set on staying right along the sea. On Lorient Beach, Flamands and Anse de Cayes, there are a number of Saint Barth villas on the beach, just be prepared to snap them up as soon as they come on the market. The Caribbean’s economic ties remain firmly linked to the United States, but China is becoming a major player in the region, with a 500% increase in foreign direct investment during the 10 years prior to 2012, according to Knight Frank.

L’Isoletta It’s not what you’d expect as a go-to spot on a Caribbean island but L’Isoletta really is one to try. Bringing the best of Italy to the island, this is pizza at its very best. Forget thick, chunky crusts and instead imagine the thin perfection of a true Italian-style base with luxury toppings. L’Isoletta bills itself as a ‘Roman style’ pizzeria, which specializes in preparing dishes the traditional way. Located in the heart of Gustavia, the cosmopolitan portside capital of Saint Barth, L’Isoletta is the perfect way to round off a day of sightseeing. Yes, it’s more causal than a five-star eatery but that’s no reason to not give it a go as the food is fabulous. Boasting an enviable range of dishes and wines, L’Isoletta is unquestionably one of Saint Barth’s greatest restaurants. Sourcing ingredients from the local market and wines from Italy, the outdoor terrace is a must and the proximity to the bars and clubs of Gustavia make it a perfect place to grab a bite before a night out on the town.

Bonito Ceviche and tiradito are the fortè of Chef Laurent Cantineaux, who has worked in the kitchens of Troisgros in Roanne and at Daniel in New York. You can consider Bonito an extension of your home. Whether you are a newcomer or an “habitué”, service is personalized and efficient. The “Bonito spirit” is found in the kitchen where seven specialty cooks, led by Cantineaux and Chef de Cuisine Ronan Mahe, meticulously prepare iconic dishes. It’s a fusion of South American and French gastronomy, with ceviches, tiraditos and Anticuchos prepared the Peruvian way. Bonito’s Bar is relaxed, and encourages sharing and discovery.

Space SBH Gallery Jacques Zolty is an integral part of the Saint Barth landscape. Born in a small village in south west France, he settled on the island in 1983 and began to document the terrain and characters through his camera lens. His passion for Saint Barth grew, along with his collection of images documenting island life and he has now worked alongside some of the most wellknown and respected photographers in the world. Many of his images are on display at Space SBH. A contemporary art gallery, principally focusing on painting and photography by a mixture of established and emerging international artists, Space SBH is one of the island’s most visited spots. This image titled ‘La Cocoteraie de Lorient’ 1988 is one of the most famous from Zolty. The gallery represents a select group of exhibiting artists and has a portfolio of many others for sourcing artwork for private commission and provides a dedicated consultancy service for those wishing to expand their personal collection. From 2005-2011, founding partner Natalie Clifford was director of Eden Rock Gallery, which led her through a series of collaborations with other galleries including Mary Boone Gallery, Tony Shafrazi Gallery and Gagosian Galleries with a number of significant exhibitions featuring worldfamous artists. The subject of Zolty’s photographs is often portraits or landscapes and more recently Jacques has completed a sailing series, as well as a collection of raw and beautiful Cuba, a place he also spends a lot of his time. His intention is to convey an idea, energy or emotion, and to act as a witness to something that has passed before his eyes. www.spacegallerystbarth.com

preface Shop Scent of Saint Tropez What does Nikki Beach smell like? This year, Nikki Beach created a new fragrance with New Yorkbased scent developers, 12.29. This prestigious fragrance firm translates the essence of a brand into a unique scent, and having worked with Lady Gaga, Adidas, Valentino and Mercedes-Benz, to name a few, they know what they are doing. Cofounder Dawn Goldworm is the “nose” behind the exclusive new fragrance called Saint Tropez, which is named after one of Nikki Beach’s most famous locations. The scent captures the emotions of Nikki Beach: smiling, laughing, loving and celebrating life. “Nikki Beach radiates positivity and happiness, and that’s what the scent is made to convey,” says Dawn. “There are notes of juicy lychee and wet melon. It is fresh like a blue sky with petally, aromatic jasmine and fluffy musk. It’s sexy like sun-kissed skin with amber resin and creamy vanilla.” The unisex scent is designed to appeal to both genders equally.

snapshot Photo Essay Fresh riding overview

Over-sized yachts circling the fort-lined harbor, glamorous boutiques along Gustavia’s Rue de la République and parasol-heavy beaches are expected, a given, in Saint Barth. If you fancy an image of Saint Barth you don’t often see, head to the Atlantic side, where 20-mile-perhour trade winds blow consistently and the adrenaline powers from bay to bay. Kitesurfing is a sport embraced by billionaires including Richard Branson and is becoming more popular by the day. The shallow, reef-protected waters at Grand Cul-de-Sac average 80°F year-round, making it an ideal spot to learn to kitesurf. Champion kitesurfer Enguerrand Espinassou offers lessons for up to two people at a time and if you’re already an experienced adrenalinejunkie, you can rent equipment and head out into the shallow reef waters.

Idyllic Retreat Step into paradise at Nikki Beach Resort & Spa Koh Samui. Press pause and enjoy one of Thailand’s most beautiful and peaceful islands...

Thailand is known for its beautiful beaches, and the island of Koh Samui is one of the reasons for this reputation. Perched on Lipa Noi, the island’s sunset-facing beach, Nikki Beach Resort Koh Samui is pure paradise. Walk through the shallow water at low tide, gaze out at islets sprinkled across the sea and drop off the map for a few days on this long and relatively undeveloped stretch of beach. Swap the hustle and bustle of Thailand’s east coast nightlife for the nightly light show as the sun sinks into the ocean and you discover a new cocktail each evening courtesy of expert bar staff. The incredible offerings at this venue — the lush surroundings, global cuisine and funky beats — are enough to lure even those who aren’t addicted to the beach scene.

If you haven’t heard of Porto Heli, that’s kind of the point... One of Greece’s best kept secrets, it’s a location with an abundance of style. Located on the Eastern part of Peloponnese, it has a large port serving sailing boats and private yachts. The eastern Peloponnese region is a favorite amongst Athenian weekenders, royals, footballers and Greek shipping heirs, who use the remote location as a relaxing getaway. Perched on the edge of a tiny seaside village, the natural harbor of Porto Heli is a gateway to a world of wonder. Discover the ruins of the sunken city of Alieon, grab a snorkel and weave your way through an ancient, underwater world of beauty or take the ferry and visit the beautiful island of Spetses. Opened in 2014, Nikki Beach Resort and Spa Porto Heli spans a massive 8,000sqm and is a clever rework of a 1970s building. Based on the visions of Nikki Beach founder Jack Penrod, the old property was reconverted by Gasterelia Design in association with Athens-based Arch Group into a 66-room hotel and beach club.

Reward yourself after a hard day of dancing (or pirate hunting) at Café Nikki, the hotel’s central restaurant offering a vast array of mouthwatering salads, gourmet burgers and the brand’s iconic sushi dragon. Thanks to the fresh seafood caught daily, the sophisticated palate is truly catered for. Think deconstructed Niçoise salad with a side of lobster foam and sprinklings of caviar.

30 years at the top

From early images for Calvin Klein to new pictures of her still looking amazing at 44, Kate Moss has always been the model of the moment. As she reaches 30 years in the industry, she shares with Sonia Haria the secret of her extraordinary success

w w w.nikkibeach.com

It’s a Monday afternoon and I’m asking Kate Moss why she thinks she’s stayed at the top for so long. “I don’t consider myself a rule breaker,” she tells me. “I just follow my instincts and there’s absolutely no agenda. It helps that I still really enjoy modeling even after all these years.” Moss is at her modeling agency the Kate Moss Agency, in Soho, London, which she launched in September 2016. She’s wearing black jeans, a plain T-shirt, a Saint Laurent blazer and Alaïa boots. “These are the basics that I always reach for,” she explains, “After so many years, I’ve realized what [clothing] I feel comfortable in — there’s nothing worse than feeling restricted in or conscious of what you’re wearing.” No surprises there. But what is striking for a supermodel, who has embodied the phrase “style icon” for almost three decades, is that she wears very little in the way of makeup and, I soon realize, has a refreshingly low-key attitude to beauty. Born and raised in Croydon, Moss was discovered in 1988 at the age of 14 by Sarah Doukas, the founder of Storm Management, while at New York’s JFK Airport with her father. But it was when late photographer Corinne Day shot a series of images of her for The Face magazine in 1990 that Kate’s look signaled a change in what the fashion industry wanted. The pendulum swung away from the curvy, Amazonian models of the late ’80s (think Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford) to the waifish grunge look epitomized by Moss in the early ’90s. Moss fronted a Calvin Klein underwear campaign alongside actor Mark Wahlberg (then the rapper Marky Mark); while

Lasting beauty

Active in the industry since the late-1980s, Kate Moss is known for her waifish figure. In 2013 The British Fashion Awards celebrated Moss for her contribution to fashion.

- 151 John Galliano booked her to open his spring/summer 1990 show, describing her as his “rough little diamond”. In 30 years, Moss has fronted campaigns for almost every luxury brand, including Chanel, Dior and Burberry, as well as gracing dozens of magazine covers. However, at the Versace show at Milan Fashion Week 2017, she was noticeably absent from the lineup of supermodels ending the show, which featured Crawford, Helena Christensen, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer and Carla Bruni. “I thought the girls looked amazing,” says Moss. “Donatella paid the perfect tribute to Gianni. I was away on a trip so missed the fun, but seeing the show brought back such great memories.” Yet at the present, Moss has never been more in demand. There have been deals with beauty brands in the past, most notably high-street giant Rimmel, but she’s now the face of upmarket Japanese beauty brand Decorté, which has just launched its line in Selfridges stores. But as we all know, it hasn’t all been plain sailing for Moss. There were the drug accusations that prompted several brands to drop her as a campaign model, although no charges were ever upheld. And there were the relationships: Johnny Depp, whom she dated for four years from the age of 20; Jefferson Hack, father of her 15-year-old daughter Lila Grace; Libertines frontman Pete Doherty, whom she dated for two years; and Jamie Hince, the Kills guitarist she met in 2007 and married in 2011 in a beautiful English country wedding, wearing custom Galliano and with 15 bridesmaids (the couple divorced last year). Currently, Moss is said to be dating 30-year-old photographer Count Nikolai von Bismarck. She famously did her best to not give interviews for years, becoming perhaps the most famous enigma in fashion. And even today, very little of her personal life makes it into the public arena; especially interesting in a time of social-media oversharing, which Moss isn’t involved with. She doesn’t even have a personal Instagram account, which

“The whole modeling scene is completely different to when I first started out. Everything now is so instant with digital photography & there’s no mystique.”

“I spend so much time wearing a lot of makeup at work, so I tend to keep it simple when I’m not.”

is as bold a statement as they get in the fashion world. “The whole modeling scene is completely different to when I first started out,” she says. “Everything now is so instant with digital photography and there’s no mystique. ” She’s still very keen to keep her personal life as private as possible — there are resolutely no questions allowed that are directly about Lila Grace — but occasionally we get a glimpse. “I like to live a normal life away from work,” she says. “And it’s really important for me to have friends around me who go way back. I like hanging out together with my friends and our children who have all grown up together, and we love holidaying together too. It makes it all fun.” Moss is godmother to Iris Law, the 17-year-old model daughter of her close friend Sadie Frost and Jude Law. I do chance one question, though: Lila is around the same age Moss was when she began modeling. Does this give her a different perspective on just how young she was when she started out? “Yes. I was very young when I started modeling so I really support recent changes in the industry to

protect the wellbeing of models,” she says. “It’s something I feel passionately about the models we represent at my agency: I don’t want them to feel pressured in any way.” So what is the secret to Moss’s longevity? “Setting up the agency and my role as an editor for British Vogue has also given it a new dimension. [Moss has been contributing fashion editor since 2013, and has just been made a contributing editor.] It’s great being the other side of the camera and helping develop new talent. I’m very lucky to have worked with some of the best photographers in the world and the best creative teams.” Of course, Moss is a supermodel and, of course, she has that bone structure. But pre-modeling, her first introduction into makeup was much like any other child of the ’80s — Rimmel lipstick in Heather Shimmer and Anaïs Anaïs perfume. She now just relies on a good cleanser and face cream to keep her skin in check, rather than a lot of cosmetics — she just has on a little bronzer and mascara today. “Even though I’m low-maintenance, I do still like a facial and massage when I can.” And her biggest beauty tip that she’s learnt from all her years of modeling? “The ice plunge is the best trick! Fill a sink with ice cubes, cold water and slices of cucumber and hold your face in for as long as you can. It instantly reduces puffiness and tightens up your skin.” So what does she think about the beauty ideal so many social media stars now push on Instagram — the full-on makeup, heavy contouring and selfie-worthy looks? “It’s quite amazing what some of these girls can do,” she says. “They use really professional techniques to transform features, but it’s not an everyday look I go in for. As I said, I don’t like selfies.” At 44 and going into her third decade in the spotlight, she seems thoroughly normal: “My perfect weekend is in the country,” she says, “walking with the dogs, doing yoga, cooking a roast dinner and catching up on the TV I’ve missed in the week.” But there’s still the Kate Moss we all think we know in there, somewhere. Pressed about her style outside of the off-duty uniform of skinny black jeans, T-shirt and blazer, she tells me, “At night it’s heels and either a super-short dress or a low neck, but never both.” Style advice from one of the greats.

Instant recognition

Kate Moss, who has been a Rimmel ambassador for 16 years, has inspired numerous cultural depictions, and has played herself in the films The Boy in the Dress, Ab Fab: The Movie, Zoolander 2 and Red Nose Day Actually.

20 years Celebration of life

In 1998, Jack Penrod created Nikki Beach as a tribute to his daughter. Twenty years later, that legacy endures as the most successful beach club brand in the world By Jacquelynn Powers Maurice

Today, Nikki Beach is known as that glamorous beach club with the fantastic music in hotspots such as Miami Beach, Saint Tropez, Saint Barth, Dubai and beyond. However, the Miami Beach-based hospitality company started modestly and organically as a butterfly garden and café, a tribute to Jack Penrod’s departed daughter, Nicole. In fact, Nikki Beach wasn’t supposed to be a brand at all. “The building of a garden by the sea was my therapy to be able to cope with losing my daughter Nicole,” recalls Jack Penrod, founder and owner of Nikki Beach. “My wife Lucia created a very active butterfly garden where hundreds of monarchs were released on a regular basis, and I personally planted all the trees that stand there today. This was a project of love, not business.” Penrod had already built an incredibly successful business, multiple ones, in fact.

All night long With 14 Nikki Beach locations across the globe, the brand continues to thrive and attract well known faces. It’s a place for celebration and entertainment with its beach clubs, restaurant venues and fabulous pop-up stores.

Miami vibes

Located on the ocean and boasting the prestigious address of 1 Ocean Drive, Nikki Beach Miami Beach was the first of the 14 venues to establish itself as a quintessential South Beach landmark and luxury beach club in 1998.

His eponymous bars and clubs stretched from Daytona Beach to Fort Lauderdale to Miami Beach. In 1998, Nikki Beach began its life as a memorial and seaside café. The space was so beautiful it resonated with a group of local nightlife promoters who asked to bring their popular “Beehive” event to the property at 1 Ocean Drive. Jack thought it would continue the spirit his daughter had enjoyed with its mix of chilled surfers, artists, musicians, aspiring models and locals. “The vibe was like a stress-free zone that made everybody feel good and happy,” says Lucia Penrod, Nikki Beach’s CEO. “There was magic in the air that kept attracting more and more people. It started with a few customers telling their friends, and their friends telling their friends. We had no idea back then that we were creating a lifestyle of celebration centered around family and friends.” Nikki Beach’s early association with this Bohemian crowd also helped to create the brand’s “barefoot luxury” identity, accented by the tribal elements Jack introduced, such as the signature teepee and all white décor. “I have always had a strong affinity with the Native American culture,” he explains. “My mother used to tell us we were part Cherokee; I guess I believed her! I admire the Native American’s profound relationship with Mother Earth, their family gatherings around a campfire, their history, their spirituality. I have always been very close to nature. And since all of this was created to honor Nikki, the tribal influences incorporated everything my family loved.” Nikki Beach also infused European-style

beach club culture into the mix, and its American audience happily adjusted to the long lunches and rosé lifestyle better known in Saint Tropez than South Beach at the time. “Back in the late ’90s, rosé wine in America was so foreign that you could only find a few inexpensive brands, which tasted, well, not so good,” Lucia says. “We started bringing rosé from the South of France and selling it like crazy! In a humble way, I would like to believe that we helped rosé become popular in America. We felt like true trendsetters.” As demand built for the scene Nikki Beach was creating in Miami, Jack and Lucia launched a second Nikki Beach location in Saint Tropez in 2002. Nikki Beach Saint Tropez was an immediate success, buoyed by the contagious spirit of the brand, tribal elements, delicious cuisine and star appeal. Naomi Campbell hosted Saint Tropez’s opening and made it a White Party theme, which endures to this day for Nikki Beach globally. Saint Barth opened that winter, followed by locations in Spain, Thailand, Greece, Dubai, Turkey, Italy and Barbados. A Hotels & Resorts division now boasts five global properties spanning Thailand, Greece, Turkey and Dubai, with more in the pipeline this year. Of course, Nikki Beach Miami Beach remains the brand’s flagship, where the magic spark started 20 years ago. “Today, Nikki Beach Miami Beach is a top travel destination,” Lucia enthuses. “And even though it is one of our biggest properties, we have been able to maintain the laidback vibe and our commitment to ‘Celebrate Life’ with tourists and locals alike. We credit the location’s enduring popularity to our ‘Tell Only Your Best Friends’ grassroots campaign and our thousands of followers who, after 20 years, are still very much in love with our brand.” “To see what my little girl Nicole did for us and for the Nikki Beach family has left me speechless,” continues Jack. “We were once asked, ‘How does it feel to be the ones that changed the way people party around the world?’ We had no answer, but the truth is, we did! Our team created the ultimate daytime party!”

International flair

Today, the Nikki Beach concept has transcended its international venues and grown into a global, multifaceted luxury lifestyle and hospitality brand that spans the world.

Your vibe at tracts your tribe

Nikki Beach Dubai’s resident DJ, Mademoiselle Sabah, hits the decks in the greatest party hot spot in the UAE. Her enticing music attracts crowds from all over the world.

Nikki Beach’s Music Makers Nikki Beach is famous for its music scene across the globe. Meet the DJs who keep the crowds dancing - from Dubai and Miami Beach to Saint Tropez and Ibiza

Nikki Beach thrives on the power of music to celebrate life; it’s one of the main pillars that define the very essence of the Nikki Beach brand. Within the 14 worldwide resort locations, Nikki Beach has a small family of DJs that spread their light (and musical beats) onto the dance floors and into our spirits. Heading the knowledgeable panel of musical stars is Philippe Paris, who is the Global Music Ambassador for all Nikki Beach destinations; DJ Karl8 is a resident in Mallorca; Patris Gero headlines Saint Barth and Saint Tropez; DJ Antonio is based in Marbella; while Mademoiselle Sabah is the resident DJ at Nikki Beach Dubai. Aspiring DJs take note, music must be in your soul at a very young age. Mademoiselle Sabah describes music as always being part of her heritage growing up, “I grew up in a big family of seven brothers and sisters. They all loved different genres of music — my parents used to listen to Arabic music, my brothers were listening to soul and funk, my sisters to dance, pop music and hip-hop, so at an early age, I was surrounded by an eclectic mix.” This only highlights that diversity is certainly the spice of life.

DJ Patris Gero is based in Saint Barth during winter and Saint Tropez during summer. “I play at the Cannes Film Festival and at Nikki Beach Saint Tropez. In October I like to come back to my paradise island in Saint Barth,” he says. He certainly lives the life, but his success comes from his passion for music. For him, music is an art form, an expression of thoughts and feelings, and a universal language. The inspiration behind his work is drawn from a broad range of artists and DJs. “Whether it’s their melodies that are inspiring, or the beats that you can see the crowds really reacting to – I’m always looking out for new sounds and inspiration,” he says. Philippe Paris started working as a DJ in 1988, and says, “I fell in love with this job the first time I set foot in a club. Music is about passion, sharing, love, fun and dancing.” He adds, “The best thing about being a DJ is getting paid to make people have fun! Some of the most memorable jobs to date include a July 4 party in Saint Tropez and playing with Paul McCartney in a New Year’s Eve bash in Saint Barth.” Carlo, better known as DJ Karl8,

says, “I’ve played in a lot of huge events. I can’t tell you how many, probably 2,000 or more. I’ve been number one 12 times in the charts and I’ve won one gold disc in Germany. I’ve worked and remixed with a lot of big artists like Michael Jackson, Katy Perry, Linkin Park, and many more during my career.” When we asked him what was the best thing about his job? He replies, “Making people happy is the best thing you can do in the world.” The producer and label owner lives and breathes music 24 hours a day. “It’s my passion and my life.” Nowadays, you’ll find the DJ in Mallorca. He first started working with Nikki Beach a few years ago. “It was meant to be. I sent an email to the general manager in Mallorca. We met for 10 minutes and literally we had the same vision how we wanted the parties to be. It happened just like that. I moved from my home in Miami to the beautiful island of Mallorca in 2016 and I’ve never looked back since.” Talking to the DJs, it’s clear that if you follow your true calling and you’re courageous enough, you can’t really fail. DJ Antonio grew up in England. He first got his set of decks at 12 years old.With a natural curiosity to learn more about the music world, back then, the only way to understand the underground scene was to buy vinyl, and that’s exactly what he did. This led him to kick-start his DJ career. After traveling around the world, he ended up owning a bar in Koh

I was DJing one night and the GM from Nikki Beach - Andy Tsavos at the time - liked my style and asked me to DJ at the Amazing Sundays Brunch at Nikki Beach. The rest is history,” he adds. Nikki Beach’s only female resident DJ is Mademoiselle Sabah. She started her journey at Nikki Beach Ibiza before joining the ranks at Nikki Beach Dubai. “Life in Ibiza is magic. It’s difficult to explain the vibe to people who’ve never been — many find it hard to believe that Ibiza is not just partying 24/7. Of course you can party, but Ibiza has many sides,” the DJ explains. “Ibiza and Dubai are incomparable. I’m only in Ibiza for three months, and as you can imagine, it’s really intense. Dubai is home for me and it’s easier to lead a more relaxed and grounded life. However, at the end of the day, my job is my passion and I’m a DJ with the same enthusiasm and desire at both of these fabulous Nikki Beach locations.” All the Nikki Beach resorts are a great place to celebrate life, with phenomenal parties, fantastic music, great food and a vibe like no other! What makes each location so special is its spirit, the music and the tribe. Karl8 concludes, “I love all the concepts at Nikki Beach, but the thing I love most is how we make daytime parties have a different atmosphere like no other in the world.” DJ Karl8
