Introducing Eight New Design Hotels™ Members


Berlin – Between a reimagined icon in the heart of Amsterdam; a stylishly revamped former showroom in the city of El Paso, and a marriage of four historic and contemporary structures in Kyiv’s most creative quarter, Design Hotels’ newest additions exceed all expectations and break many more molds. Here, we present the eight new members across the globe that are reshaping the international hospitality landscape.

At Kazan Palace by Tasigo, a luxurious hotel with a great reverence for the past, a storied 1910 structure is married with contemporary design by the Polimeks Design Group. Located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kazan in southwest Russia the former hospital is now a showcase of high ceilings, stately stairways, and grand arches, combined with Polimeks’ soothing palette of whites and grays, modern sculptures by sculptor Erdil Yaşaroğlu, and Turkish textiles. Over at Rocabella Mykonos Hotel, the design similarly blurs lines: here between the indoors and a sublime Aegean landscape. Together, exterior patios, sky high pergolas and a pool that runs along the sightline of the entire property complement a design scheme that merges the hotel magically into Mykonos’ scenery. Dry stone, simple whitewashed walls and cement floors complete a minimal chic aesthetic by Stones and Walls and provide an appropriately soothing backdrop for world class yoga, spa treatments and other wellness programs; all available onsite.

Heading to Amsterdam and Hotel Arena in the city’s newly-spirited east, where 140 guestrooms sit alongside the hotel’s very own gallery space and a restaurant overlooking the Oosterpark. Dating to 1886 and at various points acting as an orphanage, a care home, a homeless shelter and the International Youth Center for Culture and Tourism, the building’s storied past lends itself to a strong sense of history throughout. El Paso’s Stanton House is similarly tethered to yesteryear, thanks to its location in a former showroom built in 1916. Revamped with the help of Braunton & Leibert, the hotel now features warm and contemporary interiors designed by Ann Tucker of Studio A Group and Jack Sanders of Design Build Adventure. The duo have kitted out the 42 guestrooms in neutral colors, wood, concrete, marble, terrazzo, and a highly curated art presence for a modern and stylish mood that bucks the narrative of the “sleepy Southwest border town”.
