An elegant garden that highlights the beauty of the Mediterranean surroundings for the enjoyment of hotel guests.

In the garden of Hotel Cabot Las Velas, we have completely transformed the space, replacing the lawn and meadow areas with a captivating layer of volcanic gravel.

This volcanic gravel provides a backdrop of intense brown color that contrasts with the lush variety of green tones and heights that dominate this garden.

To achieve this effect, we have created clusters of ground-covering plants in strategic points, composed of lavender, rosemary, stipa grass, and agapanthus. These smaller and compact plants bring a touch of fragrance and beauty while complementing the Mediterranean aesthetics of the garden.

Furthermore, we have introduced two varieties of shrubs: mastic and pittosporum tobira nana, which add structure and texture to the spaces. To evoke the Mediterranean atmosphere even more, we have incorporated the charming Chamaerops humilis palms, which are a distinctive hallmark of the region. We have also included the agave attenuata, a succulent plant that adds an exotic and contrasting touch to the composition.

In addition, we have divided the garden into four sections and installed a drip irrigation system with pipes and hoses beneath the volcanic gravel. This ensures efficient and uniform water supply to all plants, keeping them healthy and enhancing their beauty.

The objective of this landscape design was to achieve a contrast between the volcanic gravel and the wide variety of greens present, from the subtle stipa grass to the fragrant rosemary, lavender, and agapanthus, as well as the diverse shrubs like mastic and pittosporum.

In this garden, we have avoided the growth of tall plants to achieve a complete view from any point. From the pool area, guests can enjoy a panoramic and spacious view where different colors and heights intertwine in perfect harmony. This choice highlights the spaciousness of the garden, which used to convey a sense of limited space with the previous hedges of yew and cypress.

Our goal has been to create an elegant garden that highlights the beauty of the Mediterranean surroundings. The combination of volcanic gravel, plants of different tones and heights, as well as well-distributed elements, achieves an impressive and welcoming landscape composition for the enjoyment of hotel guests.


Located in Costa de La Calma, Calvià, this garden harmoniously combines a variety of natural elements and lush plants.

As you venture into this garden, you will find yourself surrounded by a carefully selected array of plants that create a tropical and Zen atmosphere.

These include elegant bamboo, striking Strelitzias, and exquisite Phormium variegata.

We have also incorporated a small grassy area and preserved the existing palm trees, adding an authentic touch to this space.

To achieve a visually captivating design, we have created color lines in the garden, using vibrant tones such as the yellow of the Phormium and the striking green and yellow of the bamboo. These plants intertwine in a play of colors that complement the existing palm trees. The result is a truly beautiful garden that invites relaxation and contemplation.

In addition to their aesthetic function, the bamboo plays an important role in providing privacy for our clients.

We have placed them on the walls to separate neighboring spaces, providing intimacy to the clients and reducing noise from the surroundings.

Thanks to their mature growth, we achieve a visual effect and a natural barrier against unwanted noise. To ensure proper control of the bamboo’s invasive growth, we have used hedges to delimit its expansion area. In this way, we ensure maintaining balance in the garden and avoiding any unwanted interference.

In the central planters, we have created an interesting contrast by placing Phormium variegata, Strelitzia augusta and Strelitzia reginae. This combination of plants highlights their individual beauty and adds a sense of dynamism to the ensemble. The Costa de La Calma Garden, located in a tropical and serene environment, is a place where natural beauty is harmoniously combined.

Our design and implementation have resulted in a visually appealing and functionally pleasant environment.
