Inturotel Cala Esmeralda, refurbishment of suites and communal areas

Isabel López Vilalta + Asociados

Description Technical file

This project in an existing building erected in the 1970s, typical of Ibiza’s architecture and with a significant and undulating façade that envelops it, is immersed in the quest for an interior and exterior dialogue, to which we must add the functional synergy inherent to its uses, circulation and space.
This project was undertaken in two stages: on one hand, the reform of the suites and, on the other, the remodelling of the swimming pool and its communal areas. The hotel is situated next to the renowned Cala d’Or resort in Mallorca.
The interior refurbishment project strategy throws up 20 suites distributed between the two floors of the new building. The corridors that lead to the rooms are accessed from a foyer dominated by a fountain of bamboo and cotton lamps that makes the most of the building’s triple height and operates as an artistic installation. The upper floor holds a series of suites that enjoy a private terrace, while on the ground level the remaining ten suites have been designed with small private pools. The aesthetic applied is a mixture of styles inspired in the 1970s, the year when the hotel was built, in the island’s craftwork tradition and boasting a Mediterranean ambience. The carefully chosen and designed materials and furniture are in keeping with this premise and achieve a harmonious whole that shape a contemporary and colourful hotel.
The 35-m2 of the terraces in the upper-floor suites are furnished with an armchair, a swing seat and a table underneath a pergola. Here we also find a tempting chillout zone with a double deck chair and views of the sea.
For their part, the ground-level suites have a small terrace also equipped with a table, a swing seat and a bench that leads to an attractive exclusive-use pool.
The swimming pool, designed in subtle and elegant lines, presides over the communal space situated between the two buildings: a dry-stone wall has been erected around it that retains the Balearic essence and connects with the terrace. This space belonging to the restaurant has been fitted out with the same tables and chairs as those by the pool to thus achieve uniformity in soft and pleasant tones that visually transmit a sensation of amplitude.
