Yoda Hotel Horizon in Montegranaro
Montegranaro (province of Fermo) is a town of Roman origin located a short way inland from the coastal resort of Civitanova, in the heart of the Marche footwear manufacturing district. The area’s strong industrial vocation has not however altered the characteristics of the predominantly agricultural landscape, which still offers splendid views of rolling hills, ancient oak trees, vineyards, olive groves and sunflower fields. Hotel Horizon Yoda, a four star superior hotel aimed at both a business and leisure clientele, was recently built in a rural area near Montegranaro, on the side of a hill that descends into the valley of the Chienti. The close proximity to the coast makes the location ideal for tourists who want to be able to spend the day at the beach but prefer to take refuge in the peace and quiet of the countryside during the evenings. Architecturally, Yoda Hotel Horizon consists of two separate buildings that join and merge at the reception, with angles determined by the slope of the ground. One building, aligned parallel to the contour lines and extending over three floors with a rigorous and rational architecture, is used for the guest rooms. The other, oriented perpendicularly to the gentle slope of the land and organised on three levels, each staggered to lessen the overall volumetric impact, houses the bar, restaurant, meeting rooms and the spa. The building is fully glazed and visually permeable, allowing a full view of the interiors from outside. The hotel offers a total of fifty double rooms decorated in a minimalist but sophisticated style, all equipped with internet connection, LCD TV, safe, minibar and large bathroom with spacious shower or whirlpool bath. There are also five suites with views of the coast, private garden and kitchen area, ideal for guests who want to be self-sufficient during longer stays while at the same time enjoying the benefits of hotel services. For the needs of business clients, the hotel offers a Business Center that is open 24 hours a day. There are also conference rooms equipped with the most advanced technologies, which can be adapted to host either company meetings with a small number of participants or larger events with up to 200 people. Other rooms are also available in the elegant Mediterranean restaurant or Jet Set bar for private dinners and conversations. The hotel also offers the services of the Charm beauty farm, a welcoming spa area with sauna, Turkish bath, Mediterranean herbal cabin, tropical shower or cool mist chromotherapy shower and ice cascade. In the thermarium area there is also a covered swimming pool that can be opened up in the summer, offering panoramic views and an outdoor terrace. The floor and wall coverings, mostly consisting of fine porcelain tiles from the Theme Collection by Cerdomus, contribute to the elegance that distinguishes the entire hotel.
