Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton has unveiled its newest themed bedroom, which has been inspired by hospitality in the Caribbean.
The quirky boutique hotel has opened the Tropical Paradise room following a four-week transformation from its former guise as the Pretty Vacant Punk room.
Rooms include a swinging hammock, a stylish peacock chair, white linen draped bed frame, cushions, palms and flowers, as well as a complimentary turntable and selection of curated records for guests to play.
Upon entry, guests will be welcomed to the room by ‘gently chirping’ cicadas and free Island Records Beer will also be handed out.
Speaking to Boutique Hotelier, general manager Marko Gibson said: “We decorated the room over four weeks from total rip out to ready to go. The room had been Pretty Vacant Punk room and we decided Punk IS dead and was time to move on. I’d heard about the hotel accommodations in the Caribbean that Island Records founder Chris Blackwell had set up and wanted to theme a room like this but with Pelirocco twist to it. Hence the window into the shower and hammock to give it something different to other hotel rooms.”
Established in 2000, Hotel Pelirocco is one of Brighton’s and the UK’s first themed boutique hotels. Its 19 rooms are individually designed and inspired by music, fashion, pop culture and art, including Mods, Star Wars, Rough Trade records, 1950s rockabilly and Dolly Parton.
