We haven't picked this one just because of
Lenny Kravitz's involvement. Ok, maybe we have but there's more to it. This
will be hotelier Sam Nazarian's second hotel after the flagship one in Los Angeles
and Philip Starck is again on board as designer. There isn't as much Starckian smoke and
mirrors (especially mirrors) as say in his Palazzo Grassi Venice creation but
there are some significant mirrors, namely on the ceilings. Behind the beds
curtains will be painted to look like white wood panelling and everything has a
fresh bright feel by all accounts.
Lenny's Kravitz Design Inc. is reported to be creating an exclusive
bungalow at the hotel. The bungalow suite will be one of 10 that will surround
the pool. Food will be fancy, created by
Super chef Jose Andres in a new Bazaar
restaurant and master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi.
