The hotel is a sustainable luxury resort located in Quintana Roo, Mexico. The project stands over three big platforms just 4 meters above sea level, evoking the feeling of floating above the mangrove and respecting its surrounding nature. Each one hosts a particular area: public, rest, and recreational, arranged through a main wooden central axis that interconnects these zones and provides organic connections. The architecture pays homage to mayan tradition as it is conformed by staggered blocks with double vertical and horizontal displacement which create plazas, circulations and terraces.
