It began as a dream… to build a hotel that could reach the stars, a hotel so extraordinary that no single word could describe it… The Myriad by Sana Hotels, where dreams come true. The morning mist reveals a sailing boat penetrating the river as an iconic milestone of Portugal’s overseas achievements on Lisbon’s waterfront. The two symbolic sails which embrace the tower blend in with the concrete structure in a perfect symbiosis. In the middle a vertical transparent atrium brings diffuse light and allows for a breathtaking sea view. Hung from the 70-meter high ceiling, jellyfish-like chandeliers give the guests inside the panoramic lifts a sense of being part of the nautical world. An immense lounge with a 70-meter high atrium on ground floor welcomes visitors, an area developed around a central bar offers an informal and elegant place to stay, work, eat and drink. Light and transparency is present everywhere. Designed as a foredeck across the river, the lounge is the “place to be” day and night all year round. On the two wings all the 187 rooms and suites have an innovative concept to get the most out of sea and city views. Beds take the premium selected spot in front of the window while the remaining spaces also benefit from the outstanding vista. The cherry on top of the MYRIAD Hotel by Sana is the upper floor Spa, with private pool, sauna, hamman, flotarium, treatment rooms, all with astonishing views. A glass bridge connects the hotel to the Crystal Center, a Business & Conference Hall designed under state-of-the-art sustainability concerns that are present throughout the hospitality complex. Modular, soundproof, fitted and decorated rooms allow for maximum flexibility, hosting gatherings from 50 to 1.000 people. After winning several awards, The Myriad By Sana was distinguished with the “Best Hotel Design New Construction in Europe, 2013”, in a event that took place in London last November.
