To create an exclusive wilderness getaway, and the W brand’s first hotel
in the Caribbean, Rockwell Group Madrid designed public spaces, a spa, and a restaurant that
introduce a welcoming rusticity to the remote island retreat.
How can a luxury retreat engage its surrounding wilderness?
The natural setting defines guest experiences inside and out.
Outdoor spaces are just 20 yards from the ocean.
Tensile fabric creates shade over the outdoor bar area.
The outdoor veranda is made out of local wood and provides a perfect view of the sunset.
Rockwell Group Europe collaborated with Patricia Urquiola on design of the spa and public spaces.
Amid the seclusion of the 55-acre tropical island, visitors find respite in environments that are at once modern and handcrafted.
A spa pavilion is enveloped by greenery, creating the illusion of a private garden. Six treatment villas rest within the space, each with a pergola-covered entrance and outdoor shower.
The spa is surrounded by shallow pools and lush landscaping.
VIP treatment rooms are designed for couples and have their own Jacuzzi.
Outdoor showers allow occupants to be truly immersed in the surroundings.
Reception is defined by a series of grillwork and an art piece by Pascale Girardin on the back wall.
Guests have a front-row seat to the island’s dramatic natural beauty.
