Completed in 2022, the 6,038 square meter project will include a lobby, restaurant, bar, gym, multipurpose room and pool area with grill.
„The hotel naturally emerges from the landscape, creating a beautiful view of the valley,” the team said.
„The hotel’s stone base is inspired by the mountain interior and has a rough and colorful look.”
The first two levels of the building were clad in a natural red, hard stone, which fell over the hill on the site.
The first three levels contain the hotel’s private rooms and have a simple white exterior that contrasts with the basement.
The lower levels, which house the lobby, restaurant, bar and garden, run perpendicular to the site’s cobble-stone street, while the upper level runs parallel.
As guests enter the hotel’s spacious lobby, the same red stone has been carried over onto the floors, walls and bar elements.

The space is furnished by Roberto González with wide, black wood tables and chairs. Wood was also used for a large bookcase that spans the length of the interior lobby.
A mix of grey, green and red cushions were used to cover the seating, while the same red tone was used to frame the series of sliding glass doors leading to the hotel’s expansive patio.
Rectangular blocks cantilever over the rear patio, mirroring the same rectangular panels used to divide the lobby.

The hotel’s individual rooms were kept to a minimum, with the same wooden furniture echoed in the seating areas, wardrobes and bed frame.
„The rooms feature a natural color palette and materials such as mineral clay, local handicrafts, wooden furniture and natural fabrics, providing guests with a comfortable and inviting atmosphere,” the team said.
An earthy red tone is also carried into the private bathroom.
