Alessandra Ambrosio: “The Islands I Go to Become Little Offices for Me”

Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio is never out of office, even at the beach. “It’s my favorite—the islands I go to become little offices for me.” More than 20 years after she launched her career, Ambrosio is still modeling and exploring the world, packing swimsuits from her brand, Gal Floripa, and her yoga mat to stay grounded. This wanderlust spirit is captured in the photo book Alessandra by Stewart Shining. Here, some of her prized places.

“I lived there for 10 years, so it’s like going home. Cipriani and Bar Pitti are my favorites! And I’m loving the Fasano hotel. I speak Portuguese with everyone there.”

Amalfi, Italy

“I stayed at the Belmond Caruso, such a charming hotel. Positano is the perfect day trip. There’s a little shop, Safari, which makes custom sandals—any color, any style.”

Ibiza, Spain

“I get to embrace my boho-chic style there. Recently I stayed at Six Senses. It’s very spiritual. They also have a cool bar and club, so I didn’t have to leave the hotel.”

Marmaris, Turkey

“I was so impressed with the beauty of the place and the sea. I stayed at D Maris Bay and want to go back with my family. There are so many activities there.”
