Hotel Chiqui interior design in Santander is the second commission for the Sebrango family, in collaboration with the architectural studio Mmit Arquitectos. It promises to be a spectacular project that elevates the Hotel Chiqui experience to a new level of luxury and comfort, especially with the design of the rooms and the construction of the solarium with an infinity pool, overlooking the Sardinero beach in Santander.

The relaxed and fresh concept of the PANORAMA restaurant and the hotel’s common areas has been maintained. On the one hand, the use of a chromatic range in natural tones with touches of blues and greens reflects the location by the sea. On the other hand, the choice of materials such as wicker and natural fibers evokes the aesthetics of the parasols used by bathers in the 19th century, adding a historical and elegant touch.

Regarding the layout of the rooms has been arranged around a central courtyard, connected to the solarium. This decision was made to maximize the entry of natural light and emphasize the breathtaking views of the bay. Flexibility in the use of space, with sofas that convert into single beds and sliding doors to separate areas, demonstrates careful attention to the needs of the guests.

The room decoration with details such as metal side tables, paper lamps, oak wood desks, and bathrooms clad in white marble reflects an elegant and contemporary aesthetic.

Landscaped solarium on the upper floor is presented as an oasis with different levels, cocktail areas, sunbathing areas, and showers. The elevated infinity pool, strategically positioned, creates the illusion of merging with the sea in a unique and relaxing environment. Variety in the heights and shades of the ceramic floor tiles and the distribution on different levels within the pool add dynamism and functionality.

The surrounding vegetation not only provides privacy for guests but also conceals the glass railings. This approach to integrating the surroundings and creating cozy spaces makes the solarium an exceptional place to enjoy the stay at the hotel. Overall, the interior design of the Hotel Chiqui reflects careful planning and execution to provide an unforgettable experience for visitors.
