Bringing the sensory experience of Gecko Hotel & Beach Club to the screen after the 2017 winter renovation has not been easy. Gecko is part of the portfolio of Marugal Distinctive Hotel Management and is one of its most unique ventures. Situated on the most beautiful beach on the island of Formentera, overlooking a 10 km stretch of white sand, Gecko’s surroundings are breathtaking.

But Gecko Hotel & Beach Club has managed to add to its enviable location a point of refinement and maturity that clearly differentiates it from other proposals.

The new look of the hotel, designed by architect and interior designer Antonio Obrador, is based on the seafaring elegance of the summers of the Spanish coast in the 50s, when the international jet-set began to visit some of our main tourist destinations. This distinguished yet relaxed glamour blends perfectly with Formentera and the owners have named it the Balearic Riviera style.

The immaculate white of Formentera in all its variations and nuances is the absolute mail role in Gecko; that of the fine sand and the light that floods everything. Light and space are omnipresent elements through mirrors and large windows that also serve to enjoy the Mediterranean breeze.

The ultra-clear waters give us a range of blues that go from turquoise to cobalt and that are the other element that constitutes the visual universe of Gecko.

When Typography is the Soul

The design of the site aims to convey that same visual sensation of space, light, colour and relaxed, elegant style. Wide uses of space, whites, large modules of content that breathe and flow through the page in delicate transitions like curtains swayed by the breeze. And finally, the typographic prominence of the Neutra family of the House Industries.

This typeface is a tribute to the architect Richard Neutra, an Austrian (though nationalized American) architect considered one of the references of the Modern Movement in the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

The Neutra is characterized by its clean and fine lines, large eyes and tremendously elegant angles, the result of a deliberate amplitude of curves. It evokes that feeling of serenity and elegance of the midcentury and carries the protagonism of an otherwise absolutely minimalist interface that serves to anticipate the Gecko experience to all future guests. huéspedes.
