Life in the Caribbean has just got a little bit closer to paradise. One of Spain’s premier lighting companies, GARCIA REQUEJO, has supplied lighting products to five-star Paradisus Los Cayos Hotel, a luxurious all-inclusive eco-resort located in one of the most pristine beach areas on the northern coast of Cuba.
The luxury resort brand Paradisus by Meliá is a synonym for exclusivity and luxury in the Caribbean, offering such emblematic hotels as the Paradisus Cancun, Paradisus Los Cabos and Paradisus Playa del Carmen in Mexico, Paradisus Palma Real and Paradisus Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, and Paradisus Rio de Oro and Paradisus Varadero in Cuba.
Opened in December 2018, the new Paradisus Los Cayos—the fourth Paradisus hotel in the Meliá Hotels International chain in Cuba — offers 802 comfortable suites located in 3 or 4-storey bungalows with stunning views of the sea and the natural surroundings.
The hotel boasts a sophisticated and modern architecture that blends in harmoniously with the tropical coastal landscape. Its elegant interior design ensures guests can relax in an exclusive private setting, offering special facilities and services with the highest level of personalisation and detail.
A specialist in products for the contract, commercial and residential sectors, GARCIA REQUEJO was commissioned to design and develop bespoke lighting solutions for all the public areas in the hotel, namely the hall, the waiting and relaxing areas, the corridors, the 8 first-class restaurants and the bars and cafés.
The firm has been able to break with the current trend for poor lit spaces, studying each ambience to set the necessary light and adjusting the Kelvin degrees to different environments. As a result, Paradisus Los Cayos Hotel is up today one of the best lit hotels signed by GARCIA REQUEJO that recently has developed lighting solutions for other five-star hotels in Cuba [Read more].
Staying true to their credo that a good luminaire resides in maintaining a perfect environment balance in each ambience, the firm has created lamps and pendant lights that subtly fuse aesthetics, technology and practicality.
Making a conceptual idea a reality is always a challenging task because you must take into account different aspects, like climatology and the space where the lamp will be placed. In this case, in the Caribbean area salinity and moisture are extreme, so choosing some types of materials is not recommended due to corrosion.
The great expertise accumulated by GARCIA REQUEJO in the contract sector allows them to adapt to almost any client’s request and need, not only in term od style but also adopting the technical solution and the materials that better suit to the project.
GARCIA REQUEJO’s product are unique, they rarely use the same piece in their projects. They are always interesting to look at, as well as scoring highly on technical performance and durability.
The fusion of quality, innovation, aesthetics and functionality explains why it has so many hotels among its contract clients both in Spain and overseas.
