Hotel Miramonti has now won 2 ‘Award-winning’ titles by major organisations - the International Property Awards, and now the BigSEE Interior Design Award. Through working with Boxxcreative, we were able to fulfil a dream and a vision for a contemporary, nature-inspired hotel in the Italian Alps. Throughout the renovation process, we worked with local wood artisans from Tirano to create bespoke, one-of-a-kind furniture while also deciding on a colour palette that best resembles the beautiful forestry and nature that surround Miramonti Boutique Hotel. Sustainability was definitely a factor that was highly considered throughout the design process. As mentioned, many of the wooden accents and furniture of the hotel were made with ‘pine’ wood, and after construction, the artisans were left with many leftover wood chips - but they did not go to waste; the leftovers were used to heat the local village! Not only will you able to find natural wooden materials in the hotel but also stone and metals - to emphasise the ‘natural’ element.

Now, we are incredibly proud of what our hotel has achieved, and we hope that other hotels looking to be ‘sustainable’ should have the initiative to take action. Want to visit our hotel in the Alps? we have a Hotel Spa for you to relax in, and a Cigar Lounge to try out our unique sets of tobacco and whiskey.
