The Parilio Hotel, a member of the Design Hotels group, is located on the island of Paros, in Greece.
Parilio means “sun’s aura” and it was around this concept that Greek firm Interior Design Laboratorium decided to design the entire hotel.
The renovation project, completed in 2021, transformed an ‘80s establishment with 55 rooms into a modern hotel with 33 exclusive suites, a reception area, a restaurant, pool and a spa.
The building’s holistic design is inspired by the architecture of the Cyclades, the pristine environment of the island of Paros and the light of the sun.
Simplicity and minimalism embellished with designer features such as the chairs and occasional tables by Vincent Van Duysen.
The hotel’s chief attraction is without a doubt its large outdoor pool, with natural rocks which emerge from the water in various points, designed in total harmony with the surrounding landscape.
All the hotel’s flooring tiles and pavers are from Le Reverse collection, in Dune colour.
The structured, anti-slip Carved variant was used for the outdoor areas, with the more rustic Antique patterned variant in the suites.
The design of the main pool and the smaller pools of the suites required the creation of a large number of bespoke trim tiles.
These ranged from the steps leading into the pool to the water recycling grids and the pool edges, all made to measure for the project.
