The One&Only Reethi Rah is as bucket-list-worthy as hotels come. Set on one of the largest private islands in the Maldives, the sublime property comprises 130 villas — many of which have private pools or hover above the turquoise lagoon — spread along 12 pristine, powder-white beaches.

Now that the dreamy resort has teamed up with Australian accessories label State of Escape on an exclusive handbag collection, everyday travelers can get their hands on a souvenir.

An elevated take on the beach bag, the neoprene tote comes in three shades that evoke the color palette of the Indian Ocean idyll: the creamy white tones of the sand, the breathtaking blue of the water, and the soft blush hue of the sky at dusk.

“We hope that this collection evokes the feelings of serenity and mindfulness that travelers can experience at the hotel,” said State of Escape co-founder Brigitte MacGowan.

And while the bag was inspired by the Maldives, it boasts a number of sturdy-yet-chic features that make it perfect for all seaside destinations. We’re talking Italian-made sailing rope handles, a removable zip pouch for storing your phone and other valuables, and an aqua seal finish that repels dirt and water, keeping the bag looking as good as new.
