The hotel’s architecture highlights its integration in the natural landscape. An abundant use of glass prevails throughout the property: the garden suites, which boast floor-to-ceiling windows, connect to the manor building through glass passageways and the natural flow of light contributed to many design decisions. Large windows feature throughout the hotel’s twenty-four suites, blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior space. Indeed, every aspect of the hotel’s design is intended to cultivate this slippage between inside and outside, between old and new. Rich earth tones and warm materials combine with the hotel’s signature hue l‘eau du nil, a watery green-blue color with tones that shifts and shimmer in changing lights to create an elemental contrast. Guests can enjoy personally recharging in one of the garden suite’s terrace hot tubs after a spa treatment.
