Perhaps unsurprisingly, the first Amethyst Hotel will be located on the man-made Ocean Flower Island in China, a country known for its literal architecture and reverence for amethyst. The hotel rooms are clustered in the center of the tall tower and will be faced with geometric, quartz-like glass tinted purple. This arrangement allows every room to enjoy panoramic views and an abundance of natural light.

In contrast to the vibrant purple crystalline windows, the interior features a mostly cool and gray toned minimalist design. Each room connects to a circulatory corridor that spans the width of the hotel. At night, the hotel’s central crystallized void lights up to create a vibrant glowing effect.
