  • Amenities will include an all-day dining restaurant, rooftop bar, lobby bar, café, volleyball court, basketball court and swimming pool.

  • The Trigano Family, co-founders of Club Med, created Mama Shelter in 2009 with an inaugural location in Paris. Since then the family has expanded Mama Shelter all over the world.

  • Mama Shelter is all about creating good vibes in a relaxed atmosphere. The look and feel of the hotels, which carry on what Starck put in place, is striking, its website and social media playful, and its reputation almost flawless.

  • The Mama brand was launched in Paris in 2008 as an urban hip concept by French designer Philippe Starck, in partnership with former Club Med CEO Serge Trigano.

  • A la carte services will include in-residence catering, personal chef, personal trainer, yoga and fitness instruction, shopping services, personal assistant, childcare, dry cleaning & laundry, private transportation/limousine services, in-residence housekeeping and in-residence maintenance.

  • Every part of the building hosts art masterpieces that tell the city's story and create an urban haven where the global and the local fuse. Mosaic steps, colorful walls and eccentric hanging decorations brighten up every corner of Mama.
