Regina Dell Acqua Resort
Located in Skala Kefallonia in front of the sea. The plot has an area of about 5 acres and the topography is characterized by very steep. Landscape -Roidis office was invited to improve aesthetically the, already constructed, 11 meters high front concrete retaining wall, facing the sea and the ,between the hotel and the sea, road, as well as the hotel’s total outside area. We decided that the best approach to the aesthetic problem was to design artificial stone coverings on the concrete wall accompanied with water cascades and dense planting in order to be transformed to a huge rock garden. The rock garden was expanded into the flat outside areas of the Hotel in order to unify and harmonize all hotel spaces between them. Moreover designed assembly areas around the pool and proposed plantings appropriate for the isolated suites gardens and for the total site of the Hotel.
