at its early stages, the hotel surazo project by WMR arquitectos took into consideration a row of existing trees parallel to the sea. organized around them, the program sees a series of 4×4 meter modules that create a relationship with the exterior throughout the creation of patios. facing the beach, the reception and restaurant are connected by a runway to the private areas. comprised of ten private rooms and two bunk bed areas, the hotel also features a pool, sauna, hot tub, reading area, and a bbq zone.

raw wood and glass were the predominant materials used in the design, resulting in a light and flexible structure. after the 2010 tsunami, the structure had to be rebuilt – a process that was fast and affordable due to its architecture. today, the hotel has gained a different tone, where the wood’s color now features an authentic beauty.
