FOR A BETTER FUTURE
A REFLECTION OF LANZAROTE
With our hearts tied up to this land and opening new routes to new horizons and dreams, we have created a spitting image of the landscape of Lanzarote which can be seen in all the hotel facilities. After 35 years of history in Hospitality and with lots of humility, big effort and sacrifice, we have managed to achieve being a referral on this magic island of Lanzarote.
Our architectural design aims to provide our Guests with a proper atmosphere where they could feel comfortable and recharged without damaging the environment
La isla y el mar Hotel Boutique follows the Biosphere Reserve declaration scheme, which pleads to renew existing buildings painted in white, with closed spaces, anthropic and keeping the interior features to allow the Guests enjoy of an intimate privacy. However, the main common areas have been projected with an architecture of open spaces, where our guests interact with the landscape as they move, being part of it.
We have taken care of everything with special detail. As an example, our corridors, have been situated north from the buildings and oriented in such way that make them cosy and shelter in winter. Also, they are meandering to protect them from the wind. Our buildings have a natural warming isolation which has been managed by the rock wool material as a passive measure and with big resistance to noise transmission.
We are in front of a dynamic architecture where the roofs and walls are discontinuous, the rocks are predominant elements of the landscape, the reflections of the complementary materials make you feel part of the environment, placing you and displacing you in a magical way among landscaping elements.
The complexity that arises from our architecture has an aesthetic continuity which uses the sky and the sea as infinite and perpetual elements, adding the natural rock or volcanic stone as the main character of different spaces creating different atmospheres.
On the island of Lanzarote, the rivers of rocks when they meet the ocean create incredible landscapes, sometimes encountering two powers, others they are joints of encountering´s forming a single reality. This meeting landscape has been the sample to create the project of La isla y el mar, Hotel Boutique.
