With respect to the traditional architecture and topography, as well as the satisfaction of modern needs and aesthetic requirements, Rocabella Hotel in Mykonos, Agios Stefanos, is redesigned to offer a unique hospitality experience.
The main features of the hotel are not only its privileged location close to the coastline of Agios Stefanos and its unique view to the city of Mykonos, but also the interesting composition of white Cycladic volumes in relation to the physical landscape.
The 22 rooms and suites follow the aesthetic design rules of the whole concept with the dominance of natural materials and elements. Guests can enjoy the privacy of their jacuzzi opened to the uninterrupted view of the sea, while all suites are designed to meet the high-standard needs of a luxury hotel and provide unique experiences within a genuine hospitality environment.
The hotel’s pool terrace, which includes a new pool, landscaped terrace, pool bar and reception, as well as the relocation of the hotel’s spa and gym into a new space, is entirely devoted to the visitor, constituting a social field of diverse qualities and activities. All spaces are organized and interacted harmoniously with the unobstructed view where the infinity pool plays a key role to the composition of holiday setting of unique luxury and sophisticated comfort.
The design of the common spaces was based to the exterior outline of the existing building as the main objective of the design was all the new spaces to have direct contact with the landscape and the pool. The reception and the bar have been suggested in new areas ensuring a constant contact with the guest while the spa, gym and the two restaurants have been organized around the pool, each maintaining its own privacy.
The materials used are simple and natural, designed and applied in great detail and quality to preserve the sense of luxury that emits the entire hotel. The interior is dominated by the beige cement mortar on the walls and floors that comes in complete balance with the dark color of the special wooden constructions. The wooden furnishings follow the same simplicity of design to highlight the attention to every detail. All the above are combined in such a way as to create continuous surfaces with a calm, warm effect. This is reinforced by the use of hand-made luminaires made of natural materials.
The first phase of the project involved the radical renovation of the common areas and the 22 rooms, where construction of the common areas- reception, pool, restaurants-bar, gym and spa-, began in February 2019 and was completed in three months, in April of 2019. In the fall of 2019, the construction of the 22 rooms will begin, while in 2021 the hotel renovation will be completed by the redesign and construction of the remaining hotel rooms.
