DALLAS—Hotel ZaZa, a boutique hotel in Texas, has launched The Bungalows at Hotel ZaZa Dallas, a collection of 12 one- and two- bedroom luxury guest suites with coastal chic interiors situated on a private compound adjacent to the hotel. The Bungalow suites range in average of 600 to 1,200 square feet and boast the comforts of a luxury residential home, with many of the rooms featuring kitchens, living rooms, and private porches and patios.
Six of The Bungalow suites are housed in an existing historic building, and the other six bungalows are in a space that was built from the ground up, designed to match the New Orleans-style architecture of its counterpart.
Design inspiration for The Bungalows came from Hotel ZaZa Developer Charles S. Givens, who had a hands-on approach to creating the new suites in tandem with local interior design firm, Design Duncan Miller Ullmann.
“In true ZaZa fashion, we created the Bungalows to delight our guests – part of the allure of our brand is that our guests can have a different experience every time they stay ZaZa,” said Charles S. Givens. “As the pioneer of the ‘theme suite’, we approach everything with spontaneity, and these bungalows were the answer to our quest for a product that was romantic and felt like a dream home – not a hotel room. We feel like we have accomplished that; the vibe is seaside meets New Orleans meets the Hamptons.”
Each Bungalow suite features a hand-selected collectios of contemporary art and oddities curated by Givens. Design elements include a vintage tail gate from a 1960’s Volkswagen Bug hanging in a bathroom, a Napoli freestanding tub from Victoria + Albert, a 1940’s 24-inch television set built in to a wooden cabinet, an amber-colored LED tree, life-size white “ghost ladies” made of fiberglass and paper mache, and a Mystic kitchen sink by Elkay used as a vanity in one of the white marble bathrooms. Much of the furniture and artwork was hand-picked from local boutiques throughout Texas.
The convenient location of The Bungalows to the hotel allows easy access to its signature amenities including the pool, the ZaSpa wellness retreat, and ZaZa’s restaurant, Dragonfly. Guests of the Bungalows will also enjoy the perks and features ranging from complimentary champagne check-in and creative lobby snacks to access of the Magic Carpet Ride, which is Hotel ZaZa’s answer to the complimentary car service, in their fleet of unique cars (such as a highway patrol car, a Cadillac hearse, a surrey covered GEM car and two Denali Suburbans).
