The White Lotus tv show by HBO debuted in 2021 and has become a cultural sensation that has been closely followed into its second season. Following the lives of well-to-do luxury hotel guests, it shows that although things look great from the outside, life isn't always as it seems. Aside from the drama, the setting for the show is always a stunning property with luxury amenities and beautiful views. Unfortunately, The White Lotus Hotels are fictional, but Haute Residence has rounded up five real-life residential alternatives that will give you the White Lotus lifestyle year-round.

These beautiful residences will be an immersive experience in Peninsula Papagayo in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica, handcrafted for those who seek adventure, appreciate extraordinary beauty, and want a life of uncommon luxury. The property also features outdoor adventures both on land and by sea, a beautiful beach club, an Arnold Palmer Signature golf course, and a beautiful sense of community. Pura Vida!

With seamless indoor-to-outdoor living spaces coherent with Bali's idyllic climate, expansive swimming pools, garden walkways, an exclusive beach club, and much more, the Aman Villas are a white-beach dream.

If staying in the states is more of what you're looking for, look no further than Miami's sandy shores. The Surf Club has been a Miami institution since 1930 and has hosted the likes of Winston Churchill and Frank Sinatra. Now, the building includes two Four Seasons residential towers right on the pristine shores of the Atlantic Ocean. These residences were designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier and feature a sophisticated design rooted in the natural world with floor-to-ceiling glass “walls” and beautiful unobstructed views of the water. The building also features a classic Four Seasons hotel with all of the luxury amenities that the name entails.
