Blue Ranger - Ovolo Woolloomooloo – Sydney, Australia
Billy might not be a social butterfly, but his quick wit and sharp mind, make him vital to the heroic team. Any fan of this ranger would opt for a stay at the Ovolo Woolloomooloo as the property’s location is practical and walking distance to the city’s must-go to locales. Of course, its bright blue exterior flush on the blue skies and clear blue water along the pier, matches his signature warrior outfit. After a long day exploring the city, escaping to your own private room complete with a free minibar, WiFi, luxurious bedding, a 27-inch LCD TV, is just what’s needed. Although it’s the awe-worthy views of the Sydney skyline that will make you want to book your stay here, the free happy hour is just the type of thing a nerdy superhero needs to make new friends.
Yellow Ranger – L7 Myeongdong by Lotte – Seoul, South Korea
Trini, the Yellow Power Ranger, is quirky, mysterious and extremely bright. If you find yourself relating to her qualities then stay at the L7 Myeongdong by Lotte where even the toilet paper is yellow! Relax in your spacious and brightly lit room and then unwind at the foot spa and enjoy a delicious meal at the Villa de Charlotte restaurant. Round off the evening with a cocktail at the roof-top bar or at the Bubble Lounge and Bar.
Pink Ranger - Don CeSar Hotel – Clearwater, Florida
Nicknamed the Pink Palace for its exterior and grandeur architecture, the Don CeSar Hotel is a fit for the Queen Bee of the Rangers, Ms. Kimberly. Like any teenager in with the “cool kids”, impressing your clique is of the utmost importance. This extravagant beachfront hotel certainly won’t disappoint. With two heated pools, three lounges, a world-class spa and remarkable unguarded views of the Gulf of Mexico, the property is sure to excite. And just like Kim, this property is no stranger to the limelight. The 227-room Gatsby-esque and fun locale has had its own starring role as the backdrop for several movie sets throughout the latter half of the 20th century.
Red Ranger – The Library – Koh Samui, Thailand
Defeating arch nemesis Rita Repulsa is no easy task but thankfully these superheroes have a strong leader in the Red Ranger. Much like the principal fighter, The Library stands out from the crowd and makes you look twice. Against the stunning backdrop of Koh Samui’s Chaweng Beach, you’ll find the luxury beachfront property offering spacious suites complete with iMac computers and modern designs. But the real show stopper is the property’s dramatic centrepiece - the blood-red tiled pool. For an accomplished athlete like Jason, the Red Ranger, swimming laps is the ideal full body workout. Once you’ve exhausted yourself, its time to indulge in Thai culinary delights or fall deep into fiction at the property’s library.
Black Ranger – Armani Hotel Milano – Milan, Italy
Bravado and swagger perfectly describe Zack, the Black Ranger. On the outside, he’s tough and keeps his cool but on the inside, there are many layers. Likewise, there’s more than meets the eyes of this famous Milano hotel. Behind the sleek façade and contemporary black and white designs, you’ll find state of the art facilities sure to appease your inner Black Ranger. Looking to get your heart pumping? The Armani/Spa is home to Technogym’s world-class equipment and impeccable service and features a Finnish sauna, steam bath, ice cascade and a relaxation pool. The rooftop relaxation area not only offers magnificent views of the city, but is also an ideal look out spot for incoming dangers.
