Lua Resort, the first 5-star hotel at Balatonfüred is the first piece of a complex touristic development. The hotel is located right on the lake shore, every room has a view of Lake Balaton. The terraces of the three-story building are stepped towards the lake, there is a large, two-story high wellness center, a restaurant with a roofed terrace and an open-air pool with water features. The 78 room hotel is located within the area of the Balatonfüred camping, right next to the new port building that is being built as part of the complex touristic development. An important aspect of the layout and design of the building was the preservation of as many valuable existing trees as posssible. The landscaping of the hotel area has been designed with consideration to the landscaping around the port building. The general facade surfaces are clad with large-format fibre cement panels. The horizontality of the building is enhanced by the metal edge of the rows of balconies encircling it. The random placement of the full story high glass panels, which protect the rooms/terraces against the sun and wind.
