POPUP ASHRAM™ AND BICYCLE-POWERED BLENDERS
COMING TO PAPAYA PLAYA, A DESIGN HOTELS™ PROJECT
Berlin, July 23, 2012 – Last December, Design Hotels™ launched the Papaya Playa Project, its first pop-up resort on a beautiful strip of Caribbean coast in Tulum, Mexico. The project’s creative vibe and off-beat hospitality struck such a chord with both residents and visitors that Design Hotels™ was compelled to keep on going. A post pop-up phase has now been launched to continue the quest for alternative modes of living and being. “We’re taking the same energy and intensity that we had for creating one of the world’s first pop-up hotels to steer the Papaya Playa Project to the next level: of bringing about a deeper consciousness of the environment and one’s inner-self. We hope to get off the grid, both as a property and as people,” says Claus Sendlinger, founder and CEO of Design Hotels™. Expect more surprises and out-of-the-box solutions in the next phase of the Papaya Playa Project.
TWISTING AND CHANNELING TO A HIGHER STATE OF AWARENESS
Exploring different spiritual paths can be a daunting endeavor. Not so at the world’s first PopUp Ashram™, launching September 15 – November 5 at the Papaya Playa Project. Michael Liss, concept creator, spiritual explorer, and former Managing Director of Butterfield & Robinson, explains the idea, “We want to create a spiritual retreat for people who are drawn to yoga or are simply asking the larger questions about life, but haven’t figured out where to turn, what to try, or found a practice that speaks to them. PopUp Ashram™ acts like a wading pool where you can test and experience many traditions without having to dive into the deep end.” A full program of conscious exploration will be offered, both planned and serendipitous, ranging from ceremonies with Indigenous Grandmothers, various types of yoga, to transcendental music and art. Choose from Five-and Eight-day Packages for the complete effect or contact the spiritual concierge on site to customize a schedule.
Rates for the PopUp Ashram start from US$1,095 for the 5 Days / 4 Nights and US$1,935 for the 8 Days / 7 Nights packages.
