Akasha Beach Resort and Spa is a new luxury 5 star hotel complex in Hersonissos, Herakleion Crete. It expands from the main road to the beach, overlooking the Aegean Sea, combining elements of a city hotel and a beach resort. The choices in the design of both indoor and outdoor spaces, seek the transition from a noisy urban environment to the serenity of the vast sea, creating a sequence of impressions, feelings and experiences. Aquatic elements escalate their presence accompanying the visitor from the lobby area to the pool areas and the beach. Successive perforated elements organize the space and filter the intense sunlight, creating conditions of comfort. Earth hues and natural materials, geometric pattern in wood and polished bronze details create an atmosphere of refined elegance and complete relaxation.
