Hotel Kaktus Playa, located in Calella on the Catalan coast, has modernised its rooms to ensure its guests have a more relaxing and comfortable stay. The main aim was to give the rooms a contemporary, urban style, seeking to maximise guest comfort, using HI-MACS® for all the furniture and eye-catching backlit wall cladding.
The hotel currently has 226 rooms, with additional services including a spa, heated pool, restaurant, and beach club. Looking to give the hotel an updated, modern look, architecture studio Byko was appointed to refurbish some of the hotel’s communal areas and the guest rooms. The architects opted for HI-MACS® acrylic stone in the guest bedrooms.
The layout and style of the rooms were a real challenge for the team of architects and designers, since they had to create standard, modern spaces that would not become obsolete over time. “We prioritised a design that opts for interior visual spaciousness, functionality, and the feeling of comfort that we get at home,” says Ismael Fernández, building engineer and CEO of Byko.
