September 2021

Light Human Hotels, the award-winning and experiential brand inspired by the millennial spirit, announces the first collection of hotel openings: Light Human Hotels Vila Real Porto, opening in the last quarter of 2022, followed by Light Human Hotel Curitiba in Brazil from 2023. 

Both hotels, together with future Light Human Hotels, exclusively managed by Kew Green Hotels, will include Paris (140 rooms), Porto Marina in Portugal (140 rooms), Miami, Corsica, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. 

Each of the Light Human Hotels will feature the brand’s signature amenities including gastronomy designed by Michelin Starred Chef Baptiste Denieul, spa services by L’Occitaine, a state-of-the-art swimming pool, events and wedding spaces, a family play area and a kid’s bar. Creativity is at the heart of the Light Human Hotels concept with the hotel showcasing art curated by Muzéo and architecture by the multi-award-winning Atelier Arcau.

 

Light Human Hotels Vila Real Porto features 124 bedrooms and suites and is nestled within a community of residences and luxury retailers just five minutes’ drive from the centre of Vila Real, an hour east of Porto’s International Airport. The resort is well-located to explore the verdant local area including the lush valleys and towering mountains of Parque Natural da Serra do Alvao and just 20 minutes from nearby Douro Valley, world-famous for its vineyards and breath-taking scenery. 

Light Human Hotels Curitiba offers 180 bedrooms and suites and is located in the luxurious Batel neighbourhood, offering easy access to the commercial and experiential centre of Curitiba, known as Brazil’s ‘green capital (The Guardian) and the “most innovative city in the world”. Bringing together working, moving and living leisure, Curitiba has become the gold standard in sustainable urban planning. The resort is located less than 20 kilometres from Curitiba’s Afonso Pena International Airport. 

Winner of the Most Innovative Boutique Hotel’s 2019 UK Enterprise Awards, Light Human Hotels, translated as "a vision of things to come," are designed to generate human interaction and provide meaningful experiences. A transgenerational, non-binary concept, created with a millennial mindset and welcome to all, each hotel is inspired by local soul and service innovation. All hotels reflect an urban reinterpretation of nature and culture, each differing in design and feel and sustainable through bioclimatic architecture. 

Halo is delighted to be working with the Light Human Hotel and Kew Green Hotels team to introduce this exciting and innovative hotel concept to the global hotel scene. We are supporting them with a global communications campaign as well as with individual hotel launches.
