design et al are delighted to announce Bevis Design Associates have enjoyed further success as they are shortlisted in the Restaurant Within A Hotel – Global category at this year’s International Hotel and Property Awards.
Bevis Design Associates were appointed by the owning company and developer to provide a complete Interior Design service for this new luxury resort hotel and spa. The project required a unique and authentic design to be applied to the resort’s Lebanese themed restaurant. Incorporating elements of Arabic influence with particular attention to arabesque detailing such as intricate in-laid floor patterns, decorative wall niches, mosaics and mashrabiya patterns in the millwork and some furniture, the design depicts a sense of location in an interesting, unique and subtle way.
The stunning show-kitchen with charcoal grills and open plan skills area allows chefs to entertain guests with stunning and exciting show cooking performance area. A mix of seating arrangements caters for a range of guests, from the intimate couple tables to traditional fours and group seating ensure the restaurant can facilitate a range of requirements and dining desires. Additionally the open-walled relaxing terrace and shisha areas ensure the restaurant serves several purposes successfully including being a stunning social space and entertainment area. The design provides a thrilling and interesting restaurant which is well planned with specialist attention to detail which promotes an invigorating ambiance for guests. The design is unique, fun and expertly utilises a contemporary twist on traditional Arabian design.
The design meets all of the operator’s brand standards as well as achieving an authentic Lebanese feel – timeless and elegant, incorporating elements of modern, artistic design. Zaatar Restaurant is a relaxing environment to enjoy a delicious meal whilst the dramatic design and show kitchen provide elements of theatre. The overall design blends seamlessly with the rest of the King’s Ranch resort and the various elements of interior styling ensure the restaurant’s main purpose of providing memorable and enjoyable dining experiences is complimented by a decadent, stylish and inviting ambiance.
