If you haven’t realized, minimalism is in. As more Instagram-savvy people around the world grow allergic to colour, the need to regress into a world of monochromatism has never been more pertinent. Customer service and toilet cleanliness now take the backseat to having clean white linen bed sheets. The only acceptable accompanying colours are brown, grey, and that very elegant but confusing blend of creamy taupe (is it brown? Is it grey? We’ll never know).

Thankfully, boutique hotels understand.


The rise of boutique hotels around the world has helped to address this pressing need for manicured minimalism – and affordably. And here at ShopBack, we’ve helped to put together some of the whitest boutique hotels around, all just one click away on Agoda.com.

Claska Hotel, Tokyo, Japan


First up on the list – Claska Hotel Tokyo, because no one does it like Japan. Take your fetish for clean lines and smooth textures to the next level with the classic Japanese bedroom interior, treated with a modern twist. No sliding shōji doors and tatami flooring here, unfortunately, but you get the comfort of a real bed with the same tranquility of an authentic Japanese home. And those wrinkle-free sheets! Plus, the toilet looks pretty futuristic, as do most Japanese appliances.

Riad Dar Maya, Essaouira, Morocco


Nestled in the heart of Essaouira, Morocco, is this gem of a hotel. Outside the room the immaculate white pillars rival the architecture of Santorini; inside it’s all about those gorgeous earthy tones and getting the authentic Mediterranean living experience. Don’t forget to snap a few pictures of you lounging casually by the wooden fireplace, or nonchalantly walking through the carved doorway.

Miss Clara by Nobis, Stockholm, Sweden


Oh, Stockholm, fashion capital of Sweden and possibly the world. How can you not be a top gunner in this minimalistic movement? True enough, Miss Clara by Nobis doesn’t disappoint, with her greyscale tones and bare furnishing. The giant bedside windows let in the perfect amount of natural sunlight into the room, so you can finally be that girl on Tumblr. If you can find it within you to excuse the odd offending plant, you’ll find that that the touch of green goes surprisingly well with the muted hues of the bedroom.

Hotel Rural Son Mas, Porto Lisco, Spain


Don’t be fooled – being bathed in a warm orange glow doesn’t stop the Hotel Rural Son Mas from looking painfully minimalistic. Just take a look at that barely furnished room, those wooden slats on the ceiling; that bed frame.

Located on the east coast of Mallorca, this rustic boutique hotel’s distinct style lies in the airy décor, sandblasted tile floors, and stone walls reminiscent of 17th century Spain. You could also opt to stay in the hotel’s most intriguing suite – a three-floor deluxe apartment with an igloo-shaped stone bathroom. Minimalism at its quirkiest.
