Many organic materials such as wood, natural fibres, linens, vintage hemp rugs and neutral colours have been used to create a sense of connection with the land. The style of decoration is in keeping with the essence of CASA TUYA: simple, relaxed luxury, without formalities, where the objects and details are not ostentatious, but are focused on the enjoyment of the guests, to promote wellbeing and connection with oneself and the environment. The amenities have been carefully selected and offer, among others, re:medy sustainable bath products; re:medy scents and essential oils; luxury Egyptian cotton bed linen; linen bathrobes; sustainable espadrilles or Bluetooth speakers.
