Perivolas by Manos and his wife Nadia located at the entrance of the village of Oia, on the cliffside overlooking the caldera in Santorini, Greece. In the 19th century the Psychas family, like many other Santorini families, developed through trade in the noted wines of the island a connection with Odessa on the Black Sea.  Manos Psychas, a sea captain, was born in Odessa, but when his job as captain of the Greek navy brought him to Santorini in the late 1950s he determined to renew his ties with his family’s island. In 1969 Manos and his wife Nadia purchased a piece of a cliff with cave dwellings and stables in the Perivolas area of the cliff top village of Oia. They had the vision of creating an idyllic retreat on their beloved island.  Faithful to the tradition of Santorini’s unique architecture they have restored a group of 300-year-old caves that were once the homes of local fishermen and farmers.  With the help of native craftsmen and using the local stone, this historical setting has been gradually transformed into a luxurious complex of 20 very individual suites. This was the beginning of Perivolas.

Spa + Hotel La Romana (2012) by Isaac Peral Codina located in La Romana, Alicante, Spain | The Hardt

 

Spa + Hotel La Romana (2012) by Isaac Peral Codina located in La Romana, Alicante, Spain. The local field contains oxides that stain the red landscape. The building has been built with local stone, such as Marble Rojo Alicante, blending in well with the surroundings. The block, marble, and scarlet welcomes you inside, austere but comfortable, and offers a sensorial experience of water and light. The soft light from inside only broke with the light entering through the many cracks in the coating carved marble. There is an attractive interior space, which only communicates with the outside through strategically located grooves that discover you the landscape. The concrete ceiling finished with the texture of the wooden forms, reflects the water sparkle, opens through skylights. In this way, the lighting is overhead, which when mixed with water vapor surrounds you in a nice weightless environment.

Living the Spa Sunsets is a vibrant experience. The light is transformed from a natural light cascading down the skylights with orange warm colors. Entering through the cracks in hundreds of lighting lines that reinforce the red light of the stone, until you can feel gradually the artificial lighting designed to introduce a fun and relaxing environment. The Sunrise reverses the process. All used construction materials are natural (stone, iron, and wood), and they are typical for the area, reinterpreting a vernacular architecture and a lyrical form, where predominates the light treatment to perceive the space. This makes a very modern architecture, fed by the building tradition of the area.

 

 


 

In addition to its innovative design of the facilities, unlike any other Spa, in its facilities, there is a saving energy system that uses the bioclimatic techniques which have made the building a sustainable and economical installation. All lighting system in the SPA is natural.  Artificial lighting is necessary only during the night. Inside we use the perimeter skylights. The natural lighting in all spaces is solved by the glass wall facade, whose light will filter through the lattice. The lattice prevents the sunlight to enter straight into de interior space, then, in warm months, cooling is not required. The spaces have cross ventilation to provide dehumidification and hydrothermal comfort. The energy from the solar panels heats the water in the pool and in the indoor spa. The marble stone is an excellent receptive material that keeps the space warm in winter for many hours, even overnight.
All materials used are local, minimizing transportation costs and manufacturing. Therefore the ecological impact of the building is very small.

Santa Clara 1728 by Aires Mateus located in Lisbon, Portugal. Love this space, housed inside an 18th-century pile on one of Lisbon’s most romantic squares, Santa Clara 1728 is the fourth in a string of slick design-led properties from hotelier João Rodrigues. Perched atop one of the city’s seven hills, overlooking the Pantheon and the Tagus River beyond, the hotel has been designed by magicians of minimal Aires Mateus, whose clean, modern interiors are refreshing trimmings to the building’s ancient walls; worn, limestone stairs lead to the guestrooms, where coarse linens, pale woods, and furnishings by designer Antonio Citterio come together in a neutral palette boosted by a graceful duck egg blue.

 

 

The goal was to construct a building that reflects the living experience of the city. A search, not done by the reproduction of traditional elements, but by a recombination of elements, materials, atmospheres, and proportions, to bring back this idea of living. A plain architecture, that combines few elements, while striving for quality in the use of real materials. An idea of authenticity and, therefore, an idea of timelessness.

Scorpions Retreat by Michael Schickinger of Lambs&Lions located in Mykonos, Greece. Situated on the picturesque island of Mykonos, Greece, Scorpios by Michael Schickinger of Lambs&Lions is an exclusive getaway that celebrates beach culture. The project was developed in close collaboration with interior designer Annabell Kutucu to merge natural textures with functional contemporary amenities: “We tried to infuse Scorpios with the classic materials and construction tactics found in Cycladic architecture to root it in its internet site and context. It was then peppered with collected objects discovered by Michael and Annabell on their travels”, the designers stated. Inspired by the contrasts revealed by the island of Mykonos (mainly its rocky, hot landscape juxtaposed by the invigorating the blue sea), the project tea envisioned a holistic retreat: “We wanted the place to be a stage that invites all aspects of Mykonos life but often with a concentrate on leisure. The style is inspired by natural components that set a laid back, down to earth and comfy backdrop for all the various activities that will take place there. It is a spot that simultaneously excites the senses and calms the soul.”

The Lodhi + Aman New Delhi by Kerry Hill Architects located in New Delhi, India. The luxury hotel won the Commendation for International Architecture at the AIA’s 2010 National Architecture Awards. On the streets of New Delhi’s Lodhi quarter, the Hotel Aman New Delhi explodes onto the pious and solemn outskirts of the city, adjacent to the Nizam Uddin mausoleum. Sprung from the imagination of the celebrated Australian architect, Kerry Hill, this luxury establishment is daringly trendy in style, plunging guests into a delicately contemporary universe. The design furniture and sculpted Rajasthan stone walls make the Aman New Delhi a worthy representative of the prestigious Amanresorts hotel group. The 31 rooms and 8 suites spread over 9 floors contain jaalis (perforated stone with geometric patterns) and open onto the hustle and bustle of the Indian capital. But for perfect moments of relaxation, there’s nothing better than taking advantage of the wide range of massages and treatments available at the hotel’s spa.

 


 

 

The stunning silhouette of Aman New Delhi is located not far from the mausoleum of Nizam Ud Din, an Indian Sufi master. Although the neighborhood is as described in the Blue Guide as a “survivor of the medieval world marked with poetry and fervor”, the hotel is a perfect example of a contemporary and daring contrast, in line with all the other contradictions that one finds in the Indian capital. Owned by the Aman Resorts group, the hotel’s 31 rooms and 8 suites are on 9 levels with a magnificent view of Lodhi quarter and its monuments. The sophisticated, modern and elegant interiors are the work of Australian architect, Kerry Hill who created an intelligent blend of traditional Indian architecture and contemporary furniture. Sculpted walls from Rajasthan, windows and partitions pierced with jaalis or embroidery type stone decorations and dark wood furniture give the rooms a discreet luxury, conforming to the Aman group’s policy of hospitality.

 

 

 


 

Amanresorts and The Lodhi have created a six-night itinerary to experience the vibrant culture of India, including two night stays at The Lodhi and Amanbagh and Aman-i-Khas, in Rajasthan.

Offering essential respite on a six-acre property, this city-based retreat is an elegant haven of leisure facilities including The Lodhi Spa, Gym, Pilates studio, Tennis and Squash courts and a variety of restaurants.
