HOTEL BÁSICO: MEXICO


















Situated in the middle of town surrounded by stylish cafe's, bars and beach clubs, just meters from the vibrant powder-blue Caribbean sea water,  lies this design-savvy  Hotel Básico. It's located in one of my all-time favorite holiday spots; Playa del Carmen, in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.

 A perfect escape for hedonist seeking crowds wanting a slice of Mexican paradise, this newly built design hotel comprises fifteen youthful rooms over two floors. The design embraces a counter-cultural design deriving inspiration from both typical and traditional elements such as Public schools, cantinas, and the petroleum industry. 

Head interior designer, Héctor Galván designed Básico predominantly out of recycled materials, using items such as plumbing pipes, woods, plastic, glass and paint. In the pool, guests can find themselves floating on large rubber tyres, while on the rooftop, two petroleum water tanks serve as pools, and customised truck fronts are transformed into cabanas with built in mattresses. 

A wonderfully designed hotel with playful industrial interiors and breathtaking caribbean views to soak in. There's no doubt i'll be visiting this place soon.
