The world’s first fashion hotel, Los Felices will open its doors in June 2024 and will be Concept Hotel Group’s ninth hotel on the island of Ibiza, and will be located in the Bay of San José close to the Group’s other hotels.
Its architecture and design take inspiration from the mid-century style of Palm Springs, the renowned city located east of Los Angeles, known as the summer getaway for American celebrities in the 1960s and 1970s. The Ilmiodesign studio is responsible for the incredible and innovative architecture and design, as they have been for all of the Group’s properties.
Concept Hotels Group’s CEO, Diego Calva explained what makes Los Felices so unique. “Conceptually, I think it’s the most powerful and elaborate thing we’ve done to date. Dedicating the hotel’s concept to the fascinating creative universe of fashion – one of our main pillars – is unique in the hotel world and an exciting task. We identify fully with this avant-garde sector that is constantly changing.”
The hotel’s concept is dedicated to the fashion world, something that is unique in the hotel industry. There will be input from established and emerging Spanish and international designers in the lobby and in rooms throughout the hotel.
Some of the names confirmed for the project include Palomo Spain Creative Director Alejandro Gómez Palomo, Spanish designer, Pepa Salazar, Ibizan native Angel Nokonoko, French designer brand Louis-Gabriel Nouchi and the duo behind EgonLab: Florentin Glemarec and Kevin Nompeix. There will also be various tributes, such as the one planned for the late, great Spanish designer David Delfín.
The hotel will be made up of 113 rooms (with a designer putting their touch in each one) and will feature the following areas: a designer’s Hall Of Fame in the lobby, a kiosk stacked with fashion magazines and books, a boutique called Les Fleurs, created by stylist, designer and legendary fashion consultant Maria Bernad (also involved in the configuration of the list of designers along with fashion curator Christophe Ledoux and the Lexa agency) and The Palms restaurant, decorated in pink and pistachio tones and inspired by those who infused Palm Springs with life in the ’60s.
Maria Bernad spoke of her excitement at being involved in helping to bring Les Felices to life. “After years of working in fashion, it’s a pleasure to bring it to a project like this. This hotel is a celebration for designers and creatives; it allows us to participate in a different way and it’s amazing for me to be part of that.”
Los Felices has two pool areas: one pink and one yellow (the hotel’s principal colours), separated by a parasol-shaped DJ booth. The Futuro House Stage will be a space for fashion shows and concerts, taking inspiration from the houses created by Danish architect Mati Suuronen in the 1970s. In addition, the hotel will feature six villas named after six significant designers who have influenced the industry.
Los Felices’ groundbreaking element is an exceptional spot called the Pop-Up Room, designed for multiple uses, including workshops, an atelier, and showcases, available to the brands and designers collaborating on this project.
The Silencio de Paris group will be in charge of the hotel’s club, which will play host to DJ sets distinct from what is typically played on the island. Silencio is already closely linked to the Paris fashion scene as it is a reference in the city’s nightlife, hosting the afterparties for fashion shows.
Arnaud Frisch, Silencio’s Founder, said, “Fashion is at the heart of the Silencio brand. Los Felices Club will be an opportunity to create an intimate, creative and daring Night, featuring artists different from those who typically perform on the island.”
