The Gold Key Awards are imminent, so we’re checking in on hospitality. We asked designers, “Aside from a project you’ve been involved in, what hotel tops your list?”
“The Devi Garh in Udaipur, India. It’s a perfect blend of traditional majestic harmony and contemporary sensibility.” —Adam Tihany of Tihany Design
“The Amanwella in Sri Lanka. Simple yet detailed Bawa-style architecture and excellent service inside surrounded by amazing wilderness outside.” —Paul Mathieu of Paul Mathieu
“Bora Bora’s Motu Tané, designed by Christian Liaigre. The use of local woods and the sensibilities of the French have been executed in a very architectural but not overwhelming manner.” —West Chin and Roseann Repetti of West Chin Architect
“Christian Lacroix’s Hotel du Petit Moulinin Paris is the epitome of everything I believe in: bold patterns and colors, striking artwork, and more than a few items that sparkle in the night.” —Andrew Alfordof Andrew Alford Design Studio
“The Halekulani in Honolulu. It’s the antithesis of opulent and the quintessential serene oasis.” —Rob Jones of Rob Jones Design
