In the post-COVID era, there has been an increase in the emphasis on guest experience, as destination hotels are emerging in unique locations, offering an out-of-the-ordinary atmosphere. Therefore, people nowadays are seeking new ways to escape what they see in their everyday lives; they are looking for a change of scenery that connects them with nature. That's why, the design of this hotel room provides guests with a new way to spend their vacation.
Nature is very organic and does not follow straight perpendicular lines. Thus, the hotel's concept takes on biophilic design by extracting the irregularity of nature, creating a new room layout. The main source of inspiration is the structure of mountains; they slope up from the ground until they form a point at the top. The height and the end tip are? what make mountains so unique; the taller the mountain and the higher you go up the mountain, the more special it is.
