W Hotels Retreat & Spa, Vieques Island by Patricia Urquiola

Pin It

Designed by Patricia Urquiola, this beautiful W Hotels Retreat & Spa on Vieques Island is located off the southeast coast of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean. Vieques was an undiscovered island before the hotel was built and is still mostly virgin land with stunning nature and wildlife, truly a beautiful island paradise.

The design compliments this setting perfectly. I have always admired Patricia Urquiola, the Spanish designer based in Milan. She is known for her attention to detail but she seems to have outdone herself here. Many colours have been used yet it does not feel overly colourful. Urquiola knows exactly when to stop,with her it's all about restraint and placement, for if you take away the accents, the interiors turn to nothing. I also like the innovative way of using locally available materials, specially the stone flooring and the cane chairs.

The interiors are eclectic but warm and welcoming at the same time. The design is like a breath of fresh air and every space makes me want to smile. Have a look and tell me if you feel the same.
