design et al are delighted to announce that Jeffrey Beers International have been shortlisted for a Beach Hotel Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2016.
Pulled from the natural surroundings of the island – the color scheme is focused primarily on breezy neutrals and deep blues with pops of crimson red. The interiors take inspiration from a ship’s cabin: walnut and embossed leather headboards, walnut plank ceilings with white wood beams, and solid white walls.
In the adjacent courtyard, dark limestone and light travertine form a graphic flooring pattern that is complemented by mostly neutral furnishings with flashes of persimmon accented by the lush greenery and magenta bougainvillea trestles. The focal point is the central fountain, covered in iridescent blue and white mosaic tiles and ringed with lanterns.
As a large open space, the courtyard had to be configured in a way that it would feel private and intimate when being used by multiple parties. To do so, they created a European-inspired outdoor living room using landscaping, trellises, and strategically positioned seating clusters.
The design of the pool deck was especially challenging as the scale and position could not detract from the view of the ocean guests would have upon arrival.
Sleek, modern lines are created by the Ipe flooring, aquamarine mosaic tiles, and limestone coping. Teak lounge furniture is upholstered in resort-appropriate white with tailored persimmon accents. While ensuring that the new design fit seamlessly with the other existing elements on the property, the design team was able to add modern character and detail to the outdated rooms maintaining the colonial flavor and all of the charm that has kept guests returning year after year while simultaneously elevating the overall experience.
