Semiramis’ guestrooms, poolside bungalows, penthouse studios and suite display an innovative mix of textures and materials: coloured concrete with rubber floors, ceramic tiles with metal. From custom-made carpeting to glass partitions to rubber flooring, the décor offers a young, energetic and seductive alternative to more traditional approaches to luxury and style. Sitting in Karim’s swing chair and playing around with the translucent plastic artifacts or typing an electronic “Do not Disturb” message in the electronic message board is one sweet treat that discerning, modern travelers should not miss. To heighten the glossy experience, Karim has dispensed with the use of room numbers, identifying each guestroom with custom designed symbols.
