The Best of The Americas (Hospitality) – The Winners Edition



Restaurant – The Americas: Winner

Ilios Tulum by Filipao Nunes Arquitectos

Ilios Tulum is a Greek restaurant that arises in the middle of Tulum, inspired by the mixture between the elements of the architecture of the Greek islands such as Athens, Mykonos and Santorini with the Mayan ruins such as Zama, Coba and Xel-Há. The fusion between both cultures makes you feel that you are in a magical place, full of history.

The texture of the chukum coating that is of Mayan origin is a natural material that is typical of Mexican architecture and the texture is visually warm, with pigments ranging from sand tones to light pinks. It can be applied both indoors and outdoors and when combining it, for example with wood and stone, the spaces obtain a mixture of almost ancestral and modern air at the same time. This is part of the design due to a Greek stylisation for its architectural elements while the volumetric forms of the facade are inspired by the Tulum ruins.

Hotel Over 200 Rooms – The Americas: Winner

Chateau Elan Winery and Resort by Blur Workshop

In 1985 Chateau Elan Winery and Resort was created in Braselton, Georgia, becoming the first winery in the region since prohibition. Wheelock saw the potential in this 3,500-acre resort, which proved out when the newly renovated Chateau Elan opened in 2020. The renovation included every component of the resort, including 252 guestrooms and 25 suites and four food and beverage outlets, with a total cost of over $25 million.

Hotel Under 50 Rooms – The Americas: Winner

The Inn at Saratoga by Atwater Inc Studio

The Inn at Saratoga, Tapestry Collection by Hilton (the first Tapestry Collection property in Silicon Valley) opened in January 2020 in the heart of charming downtown Saratoga, California, after an extensive renovation. Overlooking Wildwood Park and Saratoga Creek, the 47-room boutique hotel is a quiet haven surrounded by lush landscaping and a babbling brook. With its close proximity to some of the world’s most innovative companies, and easy access to the region’s best wineries, golf courses, and hiking, the hotel had to appeal to wine connoisseurs and techies alike while reflecting the quaint location.
