These breathtaking images are none other than of the Kameha Bay Portals, a luxury resort in Mallorca Spain designed by Tec Architecture and interior designer, Marcel Wanders. Kameha Bay Portals has recently been admitted by the Leading Hotels of the World into its exclusive hotel association and is scheduled to open early 2013.
In addition to its beautiful dream-like design, the resort enjoys the highest standards of ecological sustainability and energy efficiency. The development of the Kameha Bay Portals will involve a ‘green building’, which, with its own sandy beach and access to a small bay, will blend perfectly into the natural surroundings.In accordance with the Kameha philosophy of anticipating and catering to the most diverse wishes of the guests, the Kameha Bay Portals will keep transforming its design based on the theme of the changing seasons, a design concept by Marcel Wanders.
According to Yoo, “currently planned are 64 rooms and suites between 36 and 240 m² that will extend to the main building and the beach. Spa treatments, holistic programs, and water sports are just a few of the activities one can anticipate from the Kameha Bay Portals resort.”
“Inspiring architecture by tec Architecture has met the extraordinary interior design of Marcel Wanders and in doing so has created one of the new favorite locations in Mallorca. For Sebastian Knorr, CEO of the tec Architecture architectural firm, the interplay of hotel and nature and the highest standards of ecological sustainability and energy efficiency are particularly important in the design. Because of this, the development of the Kameha Bay Portals will involve a ‘green building’, which, with its own sandy beach and access to a small bay, will blend perfectly into the natural surroundings. The investment volume amounts to 50 million Euros.
In accordance with the Kameha philosophy of anticipating guests’ wishes and catering to the most diverse wishes of the guests, the Kameha Bay Portals will keep transforming -‐ like a chameleon. Based on the theme ‘changing seasons’, the design concept by Marcel Wanders is in line with the seasons: in summer, light fabrics and bright colors dominate, while in winter warm colors have an inviting ‘cocooning’ effect.”

No matter how well planned your vacation is, where you sleep could either ruin or take your experience to a whole new level. The people behind El Palauet Living focused on a new trend, flats instead of the “last year” boutique hotels’ concept. El Palauet Living is a group of flats that represent this new travel experience in Barcelona, Spain.
El Palauet Living consists of six suites constructed in a building dated back to 1906. Each suite is unique; no two are alike.
Since the building is over one hundred years old, there were many features that were kept and restored in the suites. Features such as stained glass windows, distinctive ceilings (45 different ceilings to be exact),and hallway moldings were kept and combined with modern elements such as iconic trendy furniture by designers such as Eames, Saarinen, Van der Rohe and Starck, amongst others. Colors used were monochromatic emphasizing the beauty in the details of the historic finishes and focusing on the beautiful furniture.
