AERA | OBM International | Timothy Peck | United States To redefine luxury hospitality, OBMI's team of designers from across the globe created a revolutionary concept, a vertical resort, AERA. Innovating to develop a new model for urban tourism, the team reimagined the horizontal guest journey found in traditional resorts to create a vertical destination in the middle of a city.

The eco-floating hotel is inspired by the sea with which it is associated in the first degree in terms of form and design principle. At this point, it is worth to mention that the project will work efficiently in areas where there is a continuous and certain flow. However, the sea which gives the structure physical and tangible power and receives the return it needs in a mutualistic form also directs the shape of the structure with the idea of the vortex.

The Concept "Merani" is not Flying Tourism and neither a Flying hotel. A hotel can be easily removed without any ecological damage as a consequence of its presence, accompanying guests during their journey/stay - on Land, in the Air and on the Water.

The operation system of HC “Merani” is rather simple: a cargo airship, instead of ISO-containers, carries one detachable Mini Hotel. With an ability to take off and land anywhere an airship can carry the hotel, with guests to places that are really off the tourist beaten track.

Park Hotel Group Unveils “First Look” of New Grand Park City Hall

Group’s new jewel in the crown empowers guests with innovation and pays tribute to Singapore’s heritage with art and design

SINGAPORE, May 22, 2018 – Park Hotel Group, one of Asia’s leading hospitality companies, today revealed the first look of its flagship hotel Grand Park City Hall. Located on Coleman Street in the heart of Singapore’s Civic District, the luxury hotel is in the final phase of its transformative masterplan which is scheduled to complete by the third quarter of 2018.

The 343-room Grand Park City Hall hotel including its modern European Tablescape Restaurant & Bar are a part of Park Hotel Group’s upcoming mixed-use lifestyle precinct comprising City Hall Square, a new dining, shopping and entertainment destination that is set on the conservation site of St. Gregory Place.

When completed, guests to Grand Park City Hall will expect to enjoy greater convenience, control and personalized service all within the reach of the mobile phones in the palm of their hands. Guests can also look forward to enriching experiences within the contemporary interiors, which are decorated with art and design inspired by Singapore’s history.

“Grand Park City Hall, our new jewel in the crown, is a spectacular juxtaposition of modern technology and heritage-influenced art and design. The hotel is a testament to our commitment to deliver exceptional hospitality and travel experiences for our guests by empowering them with digital innovation and giving them a sense of place through our inspiring interiors,” said Allen Law, Chief Executive Officer, Park Hotel Group.

Greater Convenience, Control and Personalized Service

Today, Grand Park City Hall is piloting the mobile application that allows guests to skip the queue and front desk following a digital check-in and go straight to their room with their digital key. Industry regulations and practices currently require hotel guests to provide their personal identification documents such as passports at hotel front desks even after digital check-in. With the new Grand Park City Hall application, this authentication process can be easily completed by guests taking a selfie on their mobile phones.

In addition, solving one of the worst frustrations travellers have with multiple light switches in hotel rooms, the same phone application can enable guests to adjust in-room lighting and climate cooling. Similarly, simple requests for extra amenities such as towels and bottled water are made simpler with a few buttons. Guests can also connect with the hotel’s guest services manager directly who will provide their attention and personalised assistance based on feedback and enquiry.

Travel Experiences Enriched with History and Contemporary Art

Influenced by Grand Park City Hall’s historical location, the new hotel interiors and spaces are presented with a mix of neoclassical designs blended with clean lines to create a balance between the old and new. Incorporating Peranakan pattern tiles, vintage statement pieces and artwork of local landmarks, the interiors celebrate the modern and contemporary city with mirrored imagery that evokes the sensation of a futuristic world; a counterpoint to the rich past and multiplicity of cultures of Singapore.

Conceptualised by world-renowned firm Hirsch Bedner Associates, the hotel interiors also feature an art collection that recounts the history of Singapore. Artist, illustrator and photographer Aubrey Kurlansky, who is based in Singapore, curated the modern art that captures the rich medley of cultural influences that have contributed to the making of the city nation today.

As part of the restoration work, Grand Park City Hall will also feature new architectural design elements including an updated driveway and entrance. A new majestic bronze arch gate now fronts the entrance to the hotel’s colonial-style façade, symbolic of the welcoming and attentive service that awaits guests as they step through the doors.

New Rooms and Facilities

Following the completion of 186 brand new rooms, the final phase of transformation will feature an additional 157 guest rooms and suites, a new gym facility, a new swimming pool as well as a new rooftop garden event space. Located on the top floors of the hotel, a collection of contemporary suites offers private gardens along with in-built Jacuzzis. Six pairs of interconnecting child-friendly rooms are specifically designed with families in mind, complete with colourful bean bag chairs, an activity desk, a magnetic blackboard wall and rolling paper for kids to express their creativity. Crystal Club guests will also have access to the new Crystal Club Lounge with its associated privileges.

Hospitality with social impact

B erlin, October 20, 2017 – In these dizzying times of distraction and information overload, Design Hotels™ has heeded a global call for connection and social impact. A portfolio of more than 300 hotels worldwide—and a larger creative network that surrounds them—presents a unique opportunity to bond, bridge, and inspire, and from that mindset,

Design Hotels™’ own initiative “Further” is born. This collaboration of diverse communities coming together aims to co-create meaningful and immersive hospitality experiences driven by social impact–a mission to bring people to a collective consciousness around wellbeing, creativity, and purpose.

With this quest, Design Hotels™ sees not only the responsibility of the hospitality industry to offer deeper meaning to its guests, but also an opportunity to create engagement through cultural programming.

A new breed of hoteliers has followed this command, creating community hubs that offer cultural, spiritual, and intellectual programming to those looking to connect and interact more deeply. Encapsulating this ethos, the eclectic mountain escape in upstate New York, Scribner’s Catskills Lodge, hosted the first initiative of a series that puts this call to action into motion.

Over a late September weekend, guests of Scribner’s Catskills Lodge and the Design Hotels™ Community enjoyed curated movement and meditation experiences; intersecting leading wellness communities District Vision and Goldish, and conversations from thought-leaders on climate change, including a debate between the United Nations Development Program and Pathway to Paris.

Roundtables on the new age of experiences were held by interdisciplinary representatives from Babel, Surface Magazine, and Design Hotels™, and capping off the weekend summit was a full body music and sound experience with Eli Light and Goldcap.

Taking this purpose to the Southern Hemisphere, Further has just wrapped up an events series in Brazil at the Brutalist private villa Chez Georges. From an idyllic vantage point, set between central Rio De Janeiro and its southern beaches, the three-day event was co-curated by the team behind the experiential music and arts festival FORM Arcosanti.

This edition of Further hosted an intimate writing camp of internationally renowned musical artists, including experimental cellist Kelsey Lu, drummer Zach Tretcault of Hundred Waters, Canadian electro-pop duo Purity Ring, LA-based electronic auteur Empress Of, and folk singer Julie Byrne. The international talent came together with indigenous Brazilian artists to create site-specific music aiming to raise awareness for sustainable development communities in Brazil, in partnership with the Equator Initiative.

The final day of this event hosted a closing concert, a collective showcase celebrating their time at Chez Georges and sharing the auditory results of the writing workshops with the greater Rio community.

The event also brought together founder and CEO of Design Hotels™ Claus Sendlinger, and the creative director of iconic Brazilian fashion house Osklen, Oskar Metsavaht, for a conversation on the responsibility of brands to expand the emotional and cultural consciousness of today's discerning consumers.

Design Hotels™ has long been at the forefront of new movements and experiences, and Further is another step into the great beyond. Stay tuned (and engaged).

Gone are the days of generic hotels made to fit all guests – today, we create narrative-driven hotels that speak to each hotel’s distinct and discerning visitor by creating an experience through tailor-made design,” said Haughton. “As an artist myself, I have always taken a very hands-on approach to my designs and in working with our clients, I believe it’s what helps us design to each region and market, and create an imaginative new product each time.”

The World's First Hotel Indigo® in a Resort Location Opens on Bali's Seminyak Beach in July 2017

Tags: hotel indigo, IHG, Beach Resort, Bali Resort, Bali, Seminyak, seminyak beach, luxury villas, Luxury resort, New Hotel, New resort, design hotel, Hotels with great design, spa resort, Spa, Cafe and bars

Bali's most lively and storied village is welcoming the world's most neighbourhood-centric brand in July 2017, with the opening of Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach. In a village that captures the ancient and modern zeitgeist of Bali in all its colour, energy and lively tradition, curious travellers are the new savvy individualists.

As a destination, Bali has always delighted guests with its ability to embrace the modern and traditional with a stylish and youthful zest — and nowhere is this more apparent than in Seminyak, a neighbourhood where the ocean breeze blends a fusion of village gamelan and modern house music. And indeed where in every direction, the visitor can trace the neighbourhood's story of a Cultural Journey — exploring its local communities and temples, where ceremonies and craft work retain the same daily rituals that connect you back to the heritage of the 15th century.

The new 289-room hotel gracing Seminyak's Mesari Beach draws inspiration from the flavours, culture and character of its surrounding local neighbourhood, the vibrant and lively Seminyak district — and Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach promises an authentic fusion of enchanting Balinese culture and contemporary creativity. Extending across 4.7 hectares of lush, landscaped grounds, including exotic plantings and beautiful vertical gardens, the resort fronts the southern stretch of Seminyak. Here, the best of modern and traditional Balinese design are seamlessly integrated, reflecting the surrounding Seminyak neighbourhood, from its fashion boutiques and world-famous restaurants to its artisanal craftsmanship and architecture.

The 270 spacious rooms and suites are stylishly appointed with a striking mix of locally influenced design touches. Every guestroom is fitted with daybeds, plush bedding, spa-inspired bathrooms and state-of-the-art features. In addition, there are 19 villas with private outdoor swimming pools, whirlpools and marble bathrooms – all inspired by the Tri Hita Karana philosophy (one's relationship with Gods, living beings and the earth), and showcasing a clever juxtaposition of contemporary design and ancient tradition. Each villa is planned like a Balinese house, consisting of three main areas: Nista Mandala, a space for residents to embrace the Gods; Madya Mandala, a space to be at one with nature; and Utama Mandala a space for interpersonal relations.

Guillaume Epinette, General Manager of Hotel Indigo Bali Seminyak Beach, says: “Seminyak is a melting pot, enriched with a diverse culture and lifestyle that merges all the wonderful things Bali is known for. Our inspiration has been to weave the flavours of Seminyak into our resort, not only with our design but throughout the whole experience. The result is a design-led property that reflects the changing tastes of today's affluent travellers — who not only aspire to enjoy a relaxing escape, but also crave new inspiration. We're certain that every fascinating detail on their journey of discovery through fashionable Seminyak neighbourhood will deliver that.”

Welcoming guests at Hotel Indigo is the expansive lobby space, dubbed the Neighbourhood Gallery. A Balinese Subak-inspired wall structure, accents of verdant foliage, unique outdoor artworks by local artists and water fountains symbolise the tranquillity of Seminyak and impart a soothing arrival experience. Signature geometric lines that decorate the resort at entrances and on canopies and walls are the creative interpretation of the traditional Balinese weaving textile, Tenun Songket.

There are seven lifestyle dining offerings at Hotel Indigo, with a destination to suit every moment and temptation of the day or night, all helmed by the resort's Executive Chef Mads Wolff.

Makase is the hotel's neighbourhood café, contemporary yet casual with an open kitchen serving colourful local flavours for breakfast and dinner. Pottery Café is open all day with a finely curated collection of local specialty coffees, teas and chocolates, alongside freshly-made pastries. It is also set as one of a kind outlets with its own coffee roasting machine and Pottery-making workshop by local ceramic artisan. Organic artisan bar by day and speakeasy cocktail bar by night, the Tree Bar offers healthy and bespoke refreshments within a gorgeously verdant space. By the resort's main pool is the Cave Pool Lounge, which serves cool drinks, scrumptious light bites and refreshing sweet treats such as rolled ice cream and fresh sugarcane juice. Salon Bali is the signature dining restaurant of Hotel Indigo, an intimate space with a rustic design aesthetic where refined Balinese cuisine featuring the island's traditional delicacy – babi guling, or suckling pig – is served as part of an 8- or 12-course menu. Located beside the pristine white sand beach is SugarSand set to become Seminyak's hottest new beachfront bar and restaurant in Q4 this year with space for more than 400 beach enthusiasts.

Leisure facilities for guests range from local cultural explorations to body and mind wellness. The resort's Sava Spa offers treatments and traditional Balinese massages using Sava Spa's locally-sourced natural spa products with active ingredients. The Spa also features 10 treatment rooms, a Relaxation Lounge, a Reflexology Lounge, a Nail Beauty Lounge and a 24-hour Health Club with wellness programs and state of the art fitness equipment such as yoga space, power stretching, weight-lifting, martial arts and TRX.

Guests booking 'Resort's Opening Experience' offer on our website will enjoy extra savings up to 20% for stays starting from 16 July 2017 onwards. Relax in tranquil surrounding within the resort grounds for a minimum of two nights stay. This special offer is inclusive of daily breakfast for two persons and valid for limited-time only until 30 September 2017.
