Hospitality is one sector that is booming. Today’s customers are very particular about their leisure trips and expect a lot more from the hotels they stay at right from amenities and quality to aesthetics. With everything being under the magnifying glass, the onus is on designers to convert any space into a customer friendly one. Here are a few of the latest hotel launches that we are thrilled about.
Hotel Indigo Launches in Venice
Hotel group InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is has announced the opening of Hotel Indigo Venice – Sant’Elena, which marks the brand’s debut in Venice, Italy. From palaces to piazzas, gondolas to gelato and canals to carnevale – there is no destination quite so magical as Venice. Formally a 1930’s monastery, the 75 room Hotel Indigo Venice – Sant’Elena is a peaceful sanctuary reflective of its former heritage that exudes an almost spiritual calm, the perfect place to retreat from the bustle of San Marco square.
The interior design brings to life the building’s original features with oriental influences inspired by Venice’s traditions and history, with touches of modern elements contrasting with the classic Venetian style. Plush velvet pillows layered on leather seating and brass lighting scattered throughout the hotel contrast the deep wood panelling on the walls in the lobby and the emerald green marble bar top. Ebru paintings are dotted in the public areas, bringing to life Venice’s history of introducing the marbleized papers into their famed repertory of woodblock prints, copperplate engraving and book leather binding.
