Need a dose of inspiration? Then look no further. Here, come along on a visual journey of hotel lobby renovations around the world.
The Grand Lobby in Atlantis Dubai
The awe-inspiring Dale Chihuly sculpture in Atlantis, The Palm’s Grand Lobby, is a sight worth seeing. With 3,000 hand-blown pieces that were fixed together to create the 32-ft. entry centerpiece as well as eight hand-painted murals from Leon, Spain, the lavish lobby is situated in one of Dubai’s most recognized hotels. Located on the crest of the revolutionary manmade Palm Island, the ocean-themed resort stays true to its name, featuring soaring towers, high-domed ceilings and coral-toned marble that makes it look like it is rising out of the sea.
Solé Miami, A Noble House Resort
Designed by Dupoux Design LLC, Solé Miami’s newly renovated lobby features new light fixtures, wall accents, flooring and modern furniture to welcome guests into a chic, luxury boutique oceanfront resort. Originally a sculpture, the lobby chandelier was crafted and designed by an artist named Ryan Blythe and was transformed into a chandelier by its interior design firm, led by Stephane Dupoux. Debuting its property-wide refresh in January 2019, Solé Miami consists of 249 remodeled guestrooms and suites, many with panoramic ocean views and full kitchens, new custom lighting, carpets, furniture, artwork and refreshed bathrooms.
Sanctuary Cap Cana Resort & Spa
Part of its multimillion-dollar renovation, the all-inclusive, adults-only Sanctuary Cap Cana Resort & Spa brings wellness to the forefront as soon as a guest enters the lobby. Providing a unique sense of arrival, the lobby is decked in Selenite crystal, with the showstopper being the 18-ft. Selenite chandelier set in the center of the space. Known to cleanse out negativity and promote positive energy, the abundant supply of crystal complements the open air lobby, overlooking the Caribbean ocean.
Club Med Les Arcs Panorama
Opened in December 2018, Club Med Les Arcs Panorama is a four-star, family-friendly resort built in a forest in the French Alps with views of the surrounding terrain. Guests will feel “après-ski ready” upon arrival thanks to the warm yet vibrant decor, large gas-lit fireplace surrounded by comfortable seating options, floor-to-ceiling windows and large columns resembling trees of an Alpine forest.
Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall
Radiating upscale island vibes, the newly redecorated lobby at the all-inclusive Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall invites guests to feel right at home upon entry. Boasting new modern decor and floor-to-ceiling windows, the lobby’s neutral tone is complemented by the turquoise blue Caribbean Sea.
The Foundry Hotel
A historic restoration of Asheville, NC’s former steel foundry—known for forging the steel used in the building of the famed Biltmore Estate—The Foundry Hotel wows guests with textured ceilings, modern columns and handmade glass chandeliers lining the entryway, while original artifacts such as the original elevator pulley system, exposed steel beams and large industrial-style windows are displayed throughout the lobby.
Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana & Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana
Slated to open in November 2019, the family-friendly Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana and adults-only resort Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana will be Juanillo Beach’s newest all-inclusive complex. Upon entering the resort, guests will step into the lobby breezeway, offering birds-eye views of the Caribbean sea as they check into their Zilara or Ziva guestrooms. On one side, Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana’s lobby will incorporate sandy-inspired white and beige interiors with spots of turquoise, and the Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana side of the lobby will be decked with floral walls with breathing plant life and marble as well as lively bronze-colored surfaces.
