Opening of a boutique hotel in Eumundi
The doors have opened at HOLA, a boutique hotel accommodation that celebrates the talent of local artists, nestled in the heart of the village of Eumundi.
Chef Honcho at HOLA, Nicky Thomas is delighted to welcome guests to the 15-room accommodation escape which she says was created with great love and respect for local artists. Indeed, ‘HOLA’ comes from ‘Maison d’Art Local’.
“HOLA was a project from the heart,” Nicky said.
“We set out to create a space that would celebrate the truly incredible creative talent of our community – local artists and artisans, makers and designers.
“We want guests to experience the work of local painters, sculptors, ceramicists and furniture makers, and we worked with the interior design team at CLO Studios to bring it all together.
“So each room has its own collection of local art – canvases on the walls, handmade basins in the bathrooms, ceramics on the benches, even original handcrafted “Do Not Disturb” signs. hand, as well as sculptures in the gardens and around the hotel.”
Nicky proudly shares that there are some 45 original works of art hanging on the walls of HOLA, over 100 individual ceramic pieces and 12 impressive sculptures.
“Exhibits range from huge works of art like the 30m x 3m walkway canopy installation or 100 individual ceramic birds that form the ‘Welcome Swallow Spirit Tree’ positioned in a giant silken oak tree, to to hand-thrown essential oil diffusers,” says Nicky.
HOLA is spread over two levels with two beautiful buildings located on either side of a tropical courtyard and a pavilion. The rooms are contemporary chic with a relaxed Eumundi spirit, featuring authentic wooden furniture, natural linen upholstery, bamboo and cotton throws and the most important works of art.
Nicky said each HOLA room has been designed to connect with nature – either with a balcony overlooking the treetops or with custom-designed window boxes of tropical greenery.
There are various room options available, but for those who really want to pamper themselves, there’s the HOLA suite – for luxurious relaxation.
The hotel is perfectly located to soak up the best of Eumundi, next to the iconic Imperial Hotel, Eumundi Distillers and Eumundi Brewery and opposite the famous Eumundi Markets.
“We are so eager to welcome guests to our hinterland to escape the everyday – to give them a chance to soak up the relaxed creative vibe that is Eumundi,” Nicky said.
