BLESS Collection Hotels will open first luxury property in Madrid, designed by Lázaro Rosa-Violan…

A new luxury hotel brand from Palladium Hotel Group will open its first property this December 2018.

BLESS Hotel Madrid will be located on Calle de Velázquez in the heart of the city’s Salamanca district, offering 111 guestrooms, a rooftop pool, bowling alley, spa and gym, gourmet destination restaurant, three bars as well as conference spaces.

The BLESS Collection Hotels brand is built around the concept of Hedonistic Luxury

The property’s distinctly Mediterranean-styled interiors have been designed by renowned Spanish designer and architect Lázaro Rosa-Violan, whose vision is to create a quintessentially Madrilenian character with a contemporary slant. Key design features will include ‘sensory architecture’ that will define the hotel ambiance, collaborative work spaces and the all-important social areas.

The BLESS Collection Hotels brand is built around the concept of Hedonistic Luxury, a unique proposition designed for citizens of the world – modern travellers, sybarites and pleasure-seekers. In its own words “BLESS Collection Hotels worships the pursuit of happiness and the good life”. The brand will offer original and innovative services and features created to feed the spirit and allow guests to experience “the best of living”.  A personal butler will help guests prepare their perfect ‘BLESS’ bath experience each day, with a range of bath salts, soaps and essences, depending on skin type, mood and other factors.  And guests will be able to customise their “resting experience” through various features such as choosing their bed linen, pillow type and sleep scents.

The hotel will also present a non-stop programme of inspirational entertainment drawing on the destination’s cultural agenda – from art and culture to fashion and gastronomy.  These “happenings” will include from live music, fashion shows, pop-ups, performance & visual art and photography exhibitions.

Following opening of BLESS Hotel Madrid, the hotel brand is also slated to open BLESS Hotel Ibiza next year, with further hotels to be announced shortly.

A creative collaboration between the owners with the Madrid-based Procurement Company Professional; every detail at Ibiza Bay has been designed with the guests’ comfort in mind.

Seamlessly blending the outdoors in to capture the authentic island’s elements, the rooms and suites, two private seafront pools, restaurants and spa have been inspired by the white island, (La isla blanca), turquoise of the Balearic sea and gold from the Mediterranean sunshine.

A crisp palette has been achieved with the combination of limestone floors and whitewashed walls. The character of Ibiza Bay is drawn out by bespoke furniture made by local Spanish artisans. These pieces blend into the indigenous natural Ibizan materials such as light-coloured wood beams, “piedra laja” stone cut walls and typical white washed “biriba”, cane ceilings. Creating a luxe, chilled, lounging vibe in the lobby area are raffia lamps, a macrame hanging chair and comfortable rattan sofas are intuitively peppered with striking international design pieces.

In the guestrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows and open terraces accentuate the striking sea-views, which can been seen from 80 per cent of the 152 Ibizan style rooms and suites. Tasteful details throughout include mother-of-pearl inlay and hand-blown pendant lights with hand painted headboards that are framed in bronze and complement the woven rope over-sized armchairs. Taking inspiration from the ever-changing colours of the waters surrounding Ibiza and Talamanca Bay; flashes of celadon, turquoise, lapis and indigo can be found within the rugs, fabrics and handmade ceramics with gold present in brass details which reflect the sun. Accessed through a sleek, sliding mirrored door glamorous white marbled bathrooms are completed with Dornbracht fittings and Hollywood style brass bulb lights to the mirror for added glamour. Whilst within the main room, a cool, relaxed and comfortable vibe is achieved with organic bed linens, a ‘grown-up’ in house bar and dressing area.

Slated to open next month, the hotel will offer guests tailor-made luxury, privacy and stunning surroundings on Ibiza’s vibrant west coast…

Opening on the dramatic west coast of Ibiza next month, the 186-key Seven Pines Resort will channel laid-back luxury with moments of pop throughout.

The all-suite clifftop resort is set in whitewashed Ibizenco-style homes and German-based Kitzig Interiors are responsible for the overall design. “We have embedded the environment in each building. This starts with Seven Pines as a name,” says Olaf Kitzig when describing a central draft approach of the interior design. “The resulting tension creates surprising moments,” he added.

Both the element of water, local materials and colours in their original meaning were essential design principles. For example, natural stone and old wooden planks are combined in their natural, rather rough expression with high-gloss, modern lacquer surfaces.

Room that looks out on the west coast of Ibiza

The resort, which is part of the portfolio of 12.18. group of companies, boasts unrivaled sunset views. Where possible, it uses outdoor elements in the design to compliment the island’s natural charm.

The open plan one- and two-bedroom suites will offer an abundance of sunlight. Each suite is furnished in a contemporary yet comfortable design, and uses natural tones with turquoise accents to infuse serenity and style.

Each Pool Suite is complete with a terrace or balcony as well as a central lagoon-style swimming pool with its own chiringuito-style bar.

Elsewhere in the hotel, the 1,500 sqm Pure Seven is said to be the hotel’s ‘haven of wellbeing’ that is inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle and energy of the island. Six treatment rooms aim to reconnect individuals to themselves in mind as well as body.

The open-room concept, expansive living room provide guests checking in to Seven Pines Resort with the maximum comfort, space and privacy.
