Sophisticated Areias Do Seixo Charm Hotel From Lisbon

What could be better than to spend your vacation or holiday in a hotel far away from everything, surrounded by nature and with an interior design that makes you feel cozy, relaxed and just perfect? You might think that such places only exist in your imagination. Well they don’t. they are real and look like this.

This is the Areias Do Seixo Charm Hotel. It’s located less than an hour away from Lisbon and it sits deep into the dunes of Portugal’s shoreline. The hotel was designed by Algrave-based architect Vasco Vieira. The architect envisioned this as a magical place that would feel comfortable but also sophisticated and that would burst with originality. The goal was to make the hotel achieve perfect harmony with nature and the surroundings.

As you can see, the interior design is very interesting. It features a unique combination of styles. It’s modern but it’s also rustic and it’s casual but also sophisticated. It’s difficult to create a balance between such different styles but in this case everything is in perfect harmony. The eclectic interior of the hotel features an array of original accents. Notice how sculptural some of the elements are.

Before the hotel was built here, there used to be an old aviary was on the land. The ruins of the aviary were incorporated into the foundation of the hotel and it’s partially why this place is so charming and full of character. The hotel has 14 rooms and they are all unique. Their interior décor borrow elements from exotic destinations like India or Morocco and they blend them with modern and minimalist features to create a unique synthesis of influences. The colors palettes throughout the hotel are very beautiful and nicely balanced and they set the mood for great relaxation and tranquility without reaching monotony.
