ZELA is a type of nocturnal butterfly from Southeast Asia. Rare, and beautiful, it has come to represent the region’s unique spirit. For the interior design, Studio Gronda have drawn on Indochinese visual references, creating a magical subtropical garden in both the interior and exterior spaces. Mirrored screens and frames are juxtaposed in the exterior garden, and the dining room features a colonial-style trompe d’œil mural.

Dark green and flora are part of a visual language that unites cultures, and nature predominates in the form of abundant plants and flowers in the delicate vertical garden, and repeated in various decorative elements, such as feathers made of handmade, glossy ceramic that cover the front of the sushi bar and the main bar.

Another reference to Ibiza’s relaxed lifestyle is the delicious ambiance created underneath an ancient olive tree in the garden, and the different seating arrangements in both the exterior and interior.

Sanz’s exquisite cuisine is based on Japanese gastronomy, and the fusion of specialities from various cultures such as ceviche and tiraditos from Peru, sushi, dim sum, baos and tempuras, here combined with TATEL’s sophisticated mixology and nightlife ambience -a brand that also trusted Gronda Studio for TATEL Miami-.
