An award-winning refurbishment of a legendary hotel in Gran Canaria

The ‘Premio Nacional Macael’ (Spanish Macael National Prize) has been awarded this year by the Fundación Marca Macael (Marca Macael Foundation) to the recently refurbished Lopesan Costa Meloneras Hotel, in recognition of the architectural and aesthetic value of the comprehensive refurbishment carried out in this iconic four-star Resort & Spa located in Las Palmas. In this refurbishment project, undertaken by Juan Francisco García and the Lopesan Hotel Group’s own design department, more than 7,000 square metres of marble, granite and ultra-compact Dekton surface have been fitted.

The project stands out for its large scale and its integration into the landscape and the context in which it is located, one of the most exclusive tourist areas on the island of Gran Canaria. Surrounded by the Maspalomas Dunes Nature Reserve and next to its emblematic Boulevard, the Lopesan Costa Meloneras Hotel is updated paying homage to its own history. Opened 20 years ago, with 1,136 rooms, 2,700 beds and more than 70,000 m2 of outdoor areas, it has become one of the largest hotels in Spain.

Multiple colours, textures and applications

The refurbishment has added a contemporary and innovative style to many areas of the hotel, from the gardens, swimming pools, restaurants and exteriors to the rooms and common areas. Crema Marfil marble, Negro Marquina and Negro Eclipse have been used to clad the columns, the floors of the reception area and the bathrooms in the rooms, bringing great elegance and sophistication to these areas. Meanwhile, Negro Zimbawe and Negro Tezal granites have been chosen for the floors and steps. And Dekton Zenith, Domoos, Opera, Kelya, Sirius and Orix have been used for worktops, bathroom and bathtub cladding, buffets, table tops, countertops in bathroom and common areas, and stools in the pool area.

The benefits of stone combined with Dekton surface

The strength and hardness of the natural stone used in this project blends with the various applications of Cosentino’s Dekton surface, providing a number of other technical advantages. In particular, Dekton has been used for applications such as worktops or even outdoor stools, taking advantage of its high resistance to stains, scratches and temperature changes. This, together with its easy maintenance and cleaning, makes it the perfect material for the most used areas in a hotel, guaranteeing an ‘as new’ appearance over time.
