Starblu

Elegant beachwear for all the family.

Luxury resort and beachwear retailer, Starblu launched in 2006 offering a choice of swimwear, accessories, beachwear and “from-beach-to-bar” wear for women, as well as a selection of pieces for men and children. Since then, the collection has expanded and the site has been improved, inspiring The Sunday Telegraph to write: “…the website is excellent, with crisp, clear images shot against beautiful white-sand backdrops – never mind the clothes, you'll want to buy an airline ticket to the locations, too.”

HIT THE BEACH

Browse each collection by rolling over the images featured in Women, Men, Kids and Accessories. Featured pieces are illustrated by bright lifestyle photographs, which can be zoomed in on to get a better idea of what’s on offer. Items hold up well to scrutiny, with white linen shirts for men, elegant cotton tunics for women, floral kaftans for little girls, or accessories such as travel backgammon, delicately beaded flip flops or jewellery all made from the highest quality and made with love. When you decide to buy something, simply ‘Add to Beach Bag’ choosing to pay in sterling, euros or dollars, depending on where you live.

BEACHWEAR BOUTIQUES

Starblu has recently opened two more beachwear boutiques to add to its existing shop on the exclusive The Palm Island, Dubai: one in Westin Mena Seyahai Beach Hotel in Dubai, and the other in Turtle Village, Phuket, Thailand. A fourth will be opened soon, news of which will no doubt appear on the informative and helpful Starblu blog. This is an excellent site, with a selection of beach and resort wear to match, making it a first port of call for the whole family when planning a hot holiday.
