Cosentino in Hipotels – Playa de Palma (Mallorca, Balearic Islands)
July 24, 2017
The hotel chain HIPOTELS has opened two new hotels in Playa de Palma (Palma de Mallorca) in 2017. The new buildings, Hipotels Gran Playa de Palma (4 star) and Hipotels Playa de Palma Palace (5 star), will provide a major boost to the tourism, economy and quality of the area.
For the execution and set-up of both complexes, more than 72,700 m2 of the ultracompact surface Dekton® by Cosentino was used, and more than 1,600 m2 of the quartz surface Silestone® by Cosentino.
Dekton® by Cosentino
- Flooring for indoor and outdoor wet and dry areas
The ultracompact surface Dekton® forms a large part of the paving material for the interior and exterior flooring of both hotels. The use of grip and anti-slip technology increases the safety level of the surface, preventing possible accidents.
Dekton®, thanks to its high resistance to hydrolysis, and therefore, its excellent water-resistant qualities, is the ideal material for spaces with a constant water presence.
- 4 star hotel façade
The ventilated façade of the 4 star hotel building is composed of Dekton®. In proximity to the sea, Dekton® provides optimum resistance to erosion caused by beach sand and salt residue. Similarly, it has exceptional qualities such as high resistance to rays of ultraviolet light, colour stability and high stain resistance.
- Wall cladding in wet and dry areas
The Dekton® surface forms the exterior of a large part of the walls constructed for the project. Thanks to the manufacture of large pieces of Dekton®, this is one of the standout applications of the finished design. The flatness of the product can be oberved even in its 8 mm format for vertical installation.
- Special architectural elements
Dekton® has allowed architectural details such as the diverse pillars that decorate the halls of both hotels, vertical structures that stand out for their elegance and beauty, to become a reality.
Silestone® by Cosentino
- Reception, buffets and bar counters.
The common areas comprising of bars and dining rooms of both hotels are covered with Silestone®.
Silestone® is the perfect choice for these specific applications thanks to its extraordinary qualities such as ease of cleaning and daily maintenance, high resistance to impact and scratching, and bespoke manufacture.
- Bathroom counter with integrated Exclusive wash basin
The bathroom environments of hotel bedrooms feature bespoke Silestone® counters and include two Exclusive wash basins.
