DENVER — Denver-based Sagebrush Companies, a firm specializing in real estate investments and thoughtful development, recently received the award for “Best Hotel Design” by the Architecture and Interior Design Mexican Association, for their Carmen Hotel property in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
“Being recognized as having the best hotel design by this prestigious association further elevates The Carmen Hotel as the hotel of choice for discerning, luxury travelers,” said Robert “Jake” Jacobsen, CEO and founder of Sagebrush Companies. “The modern beach design is an oasis of ‘cool’ in the heart of Playa del Carmen, bringing Carmen’s signature reef to life, on land. It provides our guests with an ideal adults-only boutique hotel, steps away from Playa’s renowned 5th Avenue, with world class shopping, dining, bars and nightclubs. We believe that The Carmen Hotel provides the perfect setting for enchantment, entertainment and escape.”
The Carmen Hotel was previously the Alhambra Hotel, and the new ownership group made a commitment to bring a fresh look to the beach which has long been dominated by traditional architecture. Hiring a world class architect they set out to build a clean modern design creating a one of a kind iconic property. They hired world class architect Victor Sanzpoint and set out to design and build a clean, modern hotel and create an iconic property.
The hotel has 37 rooms, with a choice of six different suite designs. There are two restaurants onsite, the Keel Restaurant and the Deck 5 Pool and Sky Bar, both serving international cuisine.
