The challenge in this project was to create a one of a kind 5-star city-resort hotel in the touristic developed market of Rethymno. The client brief also included the potential of the new hotel to cooperate with the adjacent 4-star hotel, Pearl Beach. To intrigue guests, a romantic storyline was created based on significant characteristics of Crete, expressed in a contemporary way. Dominant element in the reception area is a mosaic that depicts men wearing traditional costumes while outdoor furniture have references to traditional laces. The hotel interiors were emphasized to create an oasis away from the city-a place for guests to relax in a tranquil environment. A diverse, flower-themed style has been developed in each guestroom, creating an interesting and delightful ambience.
