After living out of a backpack for five weeks in hostel-style accommodation, I was in desperate need of some luxurious digs. Don’t get me wrong, its not like my own apartment isn’t nice. There’s just nothing like checking into a hotel suite with water views, fluffy robes, crisp white linen and a rooftop pool.
I’ve never been a fan of using hotel bath towels around the pool, so you can imagine my delight when upon check-in at Vibe Hotel, Rushcutters Bay, I was handed a fabulous summer towel to use poolside.
Taking cue from the dramatic colours we’re seeing on the catwalks of the international spring summer collections, its lime, purple and black hues won’t be going out of fashion any time soon. The designers of the Summer Vibe Towel must have read my mind, because standing in the hotel lobby, I realised I was already decked out in a bikini in the same colours as well as matching nails.
Now, I’ve got quite a few beach towels in rotation, but this baby has already become my number one swimming companion. And not just because of its high-quality, super absorbent cotton. The Summer Vibe Towel is also the perfect size — not too big and not too small, this towel really is just right.
