Idea behind the design? 
The hotel mainly focusses on guests from North and South Amerca. The buildings are designed by Art Deco style, inspired by the architectural style in Miami where these continents converge. The main building is in front of the beach and is reminiscent of a cruise ship, a nod to the island’s nearby cruise terminal.

Expand existing complex?
The buildings have flat roofs and an elevator stop on the roof. For example, a rooftop bar and a swimming pool can be installed later. Or the hotel can be expanded with additional floors, facilities and rooms.

From room to a suite or apartment? 
Between every two rooms there is a connecting door. For example, these two rooms can easily be converted into a suite or apartment. Extra outdoor space has also been integrated in the design. By relocating the facade, rooms can be enlarged into a suite or a family room if needed later.
