A standard suite is between $200 and $300 a night. There are no desks or televisions, a strategic move to help people slip into island life. “It’s somewhere you can go, disconnect and reconnect. ‘Get here fast and take it slow’ sums it up,” says Gorrow.
The crowning feature of the pool suite (about $197 per night) is the private garden and plunge pool, flanked by palm trees and a walk-in shower. Inside, sustainable wooden furniture and cane chairs are scattered throughout, with hand-woven baskets and contemporary art. Room 13 features Fountain Bite, an art installation by Fraser Anderson of pigmented polyurethane resin on canvas.
One single soundtrack by Reverberation Radio runs throughout the entire venue (rooms included), encouraging guests to discover new artists. Formed by Los Angeles band Allah-las and friends, weekly music podcasts play lost gems as well as new music.
The hotel’s gallery showcases George and Cisco’s private art collection. There are more than 90 pieces, each representing poignant moments in their lives. “Walking through the space feels like walking through a photo album for us,” says Gorrow. One sculpture dominates the room, Garuda of Death Metal by Madsaki. Chris Searl’s raw photographs tower alongside it.
