Canary Island resort to offer historic charm and modern luxury

June 30, 2011 |

OBM International, Coral Gables, Fla., is designing the Pasito Blanco Resort and Spa in the Canary Islands’ Gran Canaria to reflect its tropical environment. Not only are the architects reinterpreting the island’s historic colonial architecture—using white walls, volcanic stones, and wood balconies and other detailing—they are designing the complex to cascade down a hillside to the rocky cliffs and coastline. When completed, the luxury hotel will cluster 160 rooms in detached villas and include a spa, several bars and restaurants, multiple pools, and rooftop lounges.
