A stay in Explorar should be unique to the location. Moods and tones are represented in colours and theme. An urban city hotel is different to a resort beach experience, and the feeling reflects this for the guest at each location.

THE EXCHANGE

The Exchange is the central public area of the hotel and features a grab n go all-day dining experience whilst being a co-working with tables as desks and power connections for charging in all areas.

GRAB N GO

Technology-driven, creatively designed, self-service food and beverage markets, located in The Exchange. Guests can use self-service kiosks for a quick grab & go snack, small meals and refreshing drinks in between meetings or before they head out for a day of exploration.

CONNECTIVITY

The rooms are a place of relaxation and comfort. The new traveller seeks new ways of winding down, and sometimes that is binge sessions on Netflix or Amazon Prime; luckily, we thought of this too!
