My entire stay at the Arima Hotel l was delightful. I was met by kind staff and placed in a room overlooking layers of green trees which danced outside the window both day and night, enchanting and everlasting like a dream.
Each morning, a breakfast made up of local dairy, meat and fruit, accompanied by freshly baked goods and homemade plant-based goods are laid out in the restaurant on the hotel’s main floor. There I’d pass slow mornings reading beside the tall windows while I ate, dwarfed by the swaying trees beyond.
The Arima Hotel was built as part of the landscape, merging with the Marimon forest beyond it as if this space and nature itself were one. In the spirit of synergy, the hotel is powered by geothermal and aerothermal energy and decorated with organic amenities like stone, iron and wood. Aligning the hotel’s sustainable philosophies so they’re reflected both inward and out.
It’s the type of place that makes you believe in the future we all hope for, situated to subconsciously enhance our empathy for the synergetic relationship we must all move towards.
