A design proposal for a new hotel located on the north coast of Mombasa. The design proposes a twelve-storey tower that fully capitalizes on the sea view offered by the site. The guest is greeted by a grand seven-storey atrium on arrival. From the arrival, the ground floor lobby and dining immediately open up to and spill out onto the landscaped terrace, offering an infinity pool that visually connects to the ocean beyond. Alternatively, a grand stair guides the guest through the lower part of the atria to the conference facilities at mezzanine level.
The atrium is further appreciated from the open gallery to its full height. From the gallery, guests access the 66 hotel rooms that offer direct views over the horizon from private balconies.
The upper levels of the tower are dedicated to twelve one-bedroom, eight two-bedroom, and six three-bedroom serviced apartments, with two four-bedroom penthouse apartments with private rooftop terraces above. In contrast to the lower levels, the apartments at the upper levels curve against the back of the site, embracing the sea view from all rooms of all apartments. The shift in vertical alignment from the hotel rooms to the apartments allows the spa and fitness facilities located on the level separating the two to benefit from a grand sea-front terrace at mid-height of the tower. The terrace hosts shaded bar and lounge facilities as well as an open sun deck with Jacuzzi and an infinity pool hanging over its far edge.
