Estudio Montevideo: Nestled in the picturesque coastal town of Cariló, Buenos Aires, Argentina, lies a hospitality gem that has been capturing the hearts of travelers since its opening in September 2022. Welcome to Suite House Cariló, a haven of comfort and luxury that offers an unforgettable experience for all who step foot within its doors.

Suite House Cariló underwent an extensive renovation and conversion project, with the final touches completed in February 2023. The challenge was to restructure the first floor, the common areas, in order to incorporate new activities and enhance the overall guest experience. Prior to the intervention, the hotel featured a large hall that connected to the heated pool, leading guests through a corridor that offered access to the spa and gym facilities.

The design team behind Suite House Cariló had a vision to revolutionize the space, making it more than just a hotel. They wanted to create an environment that catered to the needs and desires of the guests, going above and beyond their expectations. As part of this vision, a mini market was incorporated into the hall area, ensuring that guests had easy access to essential products without having to leave the premises.

In addition, a strategic decision was made to relocate the gym to a smaller area, optimizing the use of space. The gym was infrequently utilized, so the team transformed the vacated space into a spacious breakfast area, bringing guests closer to the entrance of their rooms and fostering a sense of community within the hotel.

One of the standout features of Suite House Cariló is the stunning pool area. A scenographic touch was added by creating a division within the pool area, allowing for the remaining space to be transformed into a delightful playroom. This thoughtful design element provides guests with a unique and enjoyable experience, showcasing the attention to detail and creativity that went into every aspect of the project.

To capture the essence of Cariló's natural beauty, the design team used different types of wood, reminiscent of the surrounding trees and groves. Light textures and relief were incorporated, evoking the feeling of sand from the nearby beaches. The textiles feature various weaves, adding depth and a touch of elegance to the overall aesthetic. The material choices were carefully selected to bring the beauty of the surrounding nature indoors, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the captivating ambiance of the Argentinean coast.

Not only does Suite House Cariló impress with its outstanding design and attention to detail, but the project also demonstrates excellence and thought leadership in its concept and execution. Each environment within the hotel offers a unique and captivating quality, enticing visitors to explore and fully experience all that it has to offer. By optimizing existing spaces and exchanging functionalities, the project successfully integrated new services without the need for extensive construction work.

In conclusion, Suite House Cariló stands as a testament to the incredible possibilities that arise when creativity, vision, and meticulous execution converge. The renovation and conversion project have breathed new life into this exceptional hotel, enhancing the guest experience and providing a truly memorable stay. Suite House Cariló represents a shining example of how an entrepreneurial endeavor can greatly benefit the local area, attracting visitors, and fostering economic growth. It is undoubtedly a remarkable addition to Cariló's hospitality landscape and a true source of pride for the community.
