The White Lotus season 1
This is social satire. The new series is set in a luxurious Hawaiian resort. In the idyllic landscapes of the tropics, a group of guests is resting, one more eccentric than the other: a bright blonde "in grief" who came to Hawaii to scatter her mother's ashes; a couple of young people, whose rest is taken care of by the caring mother of a newlywed - a classic neurotic; an eccentric careerist - the head of a large cosmetics company that nervously prepares for working zoom-calls on vacation, rearranging everything in the room in Feng Shui and making her children and her shy husband suffer in earnest. The idyll will not last long - as the synopsis says, "every day in the lives of these impeccable travelers, cheerful hotel staff and the hotel itself, more and more gloomy complexity appears ..."
The White Lotus season 1 episodes list:
As a new wave of guests arrive at the White Lotus, resort manager Armond tries to assuage an unreasonable Shane and his easy-going new wife Rachel, while spa director Belinda calms a grieving Tanya. Meanwhile, Nicole suggests her husband Mark distract himself from a health scare by spending time with their son Quinn, who's been cast out by his sister Olivia and her friend Paula.
A cautiously optimistic Belinda walks a fine line with Tanya, while Armond brainstorms ways to deal with Shane. After her husband belittles her work, Rachel approaches Nicole for advice. Paula and Olivia lose track of their stash, while a revived Mark attempts to connect with Quinn.
Stripped of his gadgets, Quinn reluctantly takes a scuba class with Mark, who's struggling to process revelations regarding his late father. Hoping to reignite the spark with Rachel, Shane enlists Armond to help plan a romantic evening. Tanya leans on Belinda for support as she scatters her mother's ashes at sea. Paula keeps a secret from a suspicious Olivia.
After Shane shoots down her latest career plans, Rachel is further blindsided by an unexpected arrival. Just as Belinda begins to take her business proposition seriously, Tanya's attention turns to an intriguing hotel guest. Meanwhile, Armond's renewed commitment to sobriety is put to the test.
