The Grove is already known to be the ultimate five-star retreat, nevertheless, the luxurious hotel underwent a renovation, reopening its doors on May 17. This renovation brought the hotel from more classic and traditional times to a brighter, lighter and modern interior design by the interior design studio Martin Hilbert Design. The renovation covered the 189 rooms and suites, the lobby and the three restaurants: The Glasshouse, The Stables and The Lounges.
Opening in June 2021, this amazing Villa promises a journey in culture, history, majesty and serenity. The Villa Igiea will offer 72 rooms and suites, sheltered under the Rocco Forte. The Villa was designed by Olga Polizzi in collaboration with Paolo Moschino from Nicholas Haslam Studios, in a way that would preserve its unique heritage peculiarities while reimagining and updating other areas.

Provocateur Hotel‘s design intends to stay true to its name: inspired by the glamour of 1920s Paris this hotel’s interiors got a burlesque twist fitting for Berlin. Berlin is a city known for its rich history, museums and nightlife, and this amazing hotel fits right in. The Provocateur Hotel is located on the west side of the city with luxury shops such as Louis Vuitton, Cartier, and Dolce and Gabbana, within a five-minute walk away.
The Provocateur Hotel has an Art Nouveau façade typical of the 1911 houses designed by Wolhem Gutzeit. Originally a residential building, the structure was converted into a hotel after World War II. Its stern front was recently renovated by TSSB Architekten Ingenieure, reanimating the building’s classic personality.
As soon as guests walk into the lobby, they are greeted with a drawing-room like style outfitted with plush, jewel-toned velvet seeing, tin ceiling, deep black walls and mood lighting that instantly transports to the Paris roaring 20s.
Called Golden Phoenix the restaurant is lead by the celebrated chef Duc Ngo, whose Asian-French fusion dishes are beautifully presented in a lavish red-and-black dining room. The upscale restaurant serves dishes ranging from beef buns to delicate steam cod in ginger-soy sauce.
The Provocateur Bar attracts a fashionable local crowd with its dimly lit, u-shaped bar and flamboyant red-velvet booths. They prepare their own liqueurs and create their own infusions, so the menu is filled with modern cocktails to a punch inspired drink from the 1700s. Performers roaming the room might include an accordion-playing singer in a tight sequined dress.
The Provocateur Hotel has fifty-eight rooms filled with opulent chandeliers and rich red or royal blue velvet walls, furnishings and draperies. Room sizes vary from Petite to Deluxe with two suites worth the try: the open-plan Maison Suite has a nifty triangular ceiling punctuated by skylights, while the Terrace Suite’s sprawling patio with city views cannot be beaten in warm weather. The bathrooms are lined in black marble, porcelain pedestal sinks with brass accents; the smaller rooms have rainforest showers while the deluxe vaunt freestanding bathtubs.
Hotel interior design trends are going to be today’s topic! Some 2021 trends are still going to be present in 2022, such as eco-friendly, however, new trends such as automatisation of a room are also going to be in vogue in order to enhance the guest experience, being able to control room temperature amongst other features.
Contactless journey: hotel guests are going to find as few physical touchpoints as possible to offer them the most hygienic and safest achievable stay. This will include online check-in & check out, mobile keys and cloud-connected keyless hotel locks, cashless payment methods, communication methods such as instant messaging with the staff. The latest trends include health and energy-saving technologies such as innovative air purification systems, water filters, motion sensors and automatic water stop.
Eco-friendly, personalisation and expression designs are still going to be the go-to design trends in 2022. Certified products and natural materials such as wood, glass, stone or metal which meet ecological standards are the most used in hotel renovations or even new builds. Experts predict that natural upholstery and decorative fabrics, unpainted wooden surfaces, stone textures, large-format porcelain stoneware and ceramics will still be popular in 2022. Green plants used in various solutions – from the usual arrangement in tubs to decorating the walls in the lobby with greenery and moss – are called upon to revive the hotels’ interiors and create the right mood.
Another trend we will be seeing is the renovation of common rooms such as the hotel lobby in order to make it even more welcoming and a relaxation point. The lobbies have also turned into working spaces with long tables surrounded by chairs, and even longer centre tables next to the waiting areas. The use of light and calm colour pallet for most rooms with a pop of something extra accenting the walls. Hotels have also started to opt to have different styles in their guest rooms and suites. With this, in new hotels on the same floor, we may find rooms varying in style from classic, to modern, to art deco and minimalism.
Hotel room design has also suffered another great influence: the value of a home atmosphere, with special significance for business travellers. Due to this, hotel rooms promise maximum comfort and serenity, with a warm colour palette and expressive decor, amazingly equipped kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Another great trend we will find is hotels following local traditions regarding their meal choices.
Over the years, bathroom design has become crucial to our relaxation at home, so when it comes to hotel bathrooms, the feeling was the same: the bathroom in the hotel is proposed to be considered not only as a functional room but also as a relaxation area. So, things like the use of several types of plumbing are in vogue such as shower area and bathtub, high-quality finishing materials, decor items such as floor vases, designer lights, live plants, heated floors, innovative air conditioning, ventilation systems, and smart mirrors with built-in TV.
