Madrid, ES | Porto Cristo, ES
In 1967, a small hotel, Hotel Castell dels Hams, was established on the island of Majorca amid the Mediterranean vegetation. Over time, and through subtle improvements and extensions, it has become one of the most distinctive hotels on the eastern part of the island. The last of the alterations is an spa to supplement the heated pool. The spa intended for skin treatments and relaxation is located to give the visitors the best views of the surrounding landscape and is also filled with light in all rooms where light is needed. The space is sculpted and colourful showers of light flow through the openings in the roof. This makes the building itself part of the treatment, offering the feeling of well-being created by nature when it is introduced into the building, a feeling of total immersion for the visitor.
