The hotel, which will open as 100 per cent electric, was developed using passive design principles to enhance energy efficiency, collaborating with international and local construction teams to reduce environmental impact. 

Following Iberostar's commitment to sustainability, the hotel will also implement lower-impact operations, progressive waste management techniques, with efficient energy management to minimize emissions, aligning towards its decarbonization goal.

The contemporary coastal interior design and exteriors are inspired by the vibrant colors of Aruba´s marine life and Iberostar´s passion for the oceans. 

Hues of greens, turquoise and earthy tones have been expertly combined to convey a feeling of luxurious island living. 

The interior of the property features many locally inspired design elements, including a Divi-Divi tree sculpture in the main lobby, manta ray skin design in the swimming pool, and custom artwork and installations. 

The exterior of the building was inspired by the scales of the parrotfish, the hero of the coral reef that cleans away the algae.
