Design & Layout
Casai homes on Homes & Villas by Marriott International offer truly unique experiences for guests. The local and historic architecture and prime locations of each private home creates a clear sense of place. They are thoughtfully designed with high-end furnishings and luxurious decor to enhance your stay.
At Casai, our interior design team works closely with local artisans and designers to create one-of-a-kind pieces for each of our apartments. These details reflect local culture and celebrate local art and creativity. We recently launched Casai Gallery in Mexico City, where guests can purchase art and support local artists without leaving their front door. We exhibit textiles, ceramics and paintings in all of our units.
A prime example of our modern-design and thoughtful layout is the Dalí PH Suite. Now featured by Homes & Villas by Marriott International and located in the desirable Polanco district. This bright and spacious penthouse has a large outdoor terrace which overlooks an urban jungle, protecting you from the hustle and bustle below and creating a tranquil sanctuary. Make yourself feel at home and unpack in our spacious walk-in closet and cook up a storm in our fully-stocked kitchen. This entire penthouse has been designed for the comfort of our guests. We create a streamlined and stylish stay with keyless smart code access, high speed Wi-Fi and smart home technology in every room to keep you connected at all times.
All of our apartments are appointed with smart-home technology to optimize productivity and functionality of your stay. Casai’s apartments are unique, exceeding our guest’s high quality standards and providing the locally-immersive experiences they seek.
The locations of the properties featured on Homes & Villas by Marriott International are beyond the ordinary. In Paris, one apartment has been home to royalty in the past. Another one lifts you up into the treetops in Mexico. While one in Rome has iconic views of the Colosseum from your breakfast table.
This is an extremely important aspect at Casai when we hand-select our apartments. All of our units are located in the best and most trendy neighbourhoods in Mexico City. Most importantly they are in secure and quiet locations. You don’t need to do any research about the area, as we have done this for you. Access our exclusive suite of curated local recommendations in our blog and guide to decide where you would rather live.
Many of our homes are situated close to famous landmarks, so you can explore the city right outside your doorstep. Guests can also feel part of the community in more residential locations. They can get their breakfast at a local market or catch up on emails in a cafe around the corner. Admire the breathtaking skyline of Mexico City from your private terrace in our apartments found in Polanco or Santa Fe.
The Vizcaino Rooftop Suite in La Condesa, also featured by Homes & Villas by Marriott International, has spectacular city views from its private patio, overlooking one of the most trending neighborhoods in Mexico City. From this boutique suite, you have on your doorstep an array of specialty coffee shops, Parque Mexico and Parque España, and also Amsterdam Street, which has everything you need. Close by is Roma Norte where you can admire colorful murals that adorn Art-Deco and Neo-colonial buildings. Not to mention, no-frills taquerías that are heaving with locals — a good sign of a great taco. For foodies, Mercado Medellín has over 500 stalls selling international produce and take your pick of street food. Also in Roma, you are spoilt for choice of contemporary art galleries. For example: Lulu, OMR or Proyectos Monclova.
Our units that have been carefully selected by Homes & Villas by Marriott International take our guests on a cultural journey. All of the design pieces featured in our spaces represent the narratives of the neighbourhoods they’re located in. Find the stories of the local artist within the art hanging on the walls or draped across the floor. Each piece portrays the traditional design techniques that have been passed down through generations. Our guests are invited to experience these local tales without even having to leave the comfort of their home.
Head of Design at Casai, Alexa Backal, explains: “our philosophy is firmly rooted in the belief that buying local does not only support the economy, but it invites our guests to feel at home in spaces that aesthetically speak the local language.”
Of course we are always thrilled to see when our guests share their experience on their Instagram, showcasing our unique decor and artisan crafts. It’s an incredible insight into how they are enjoying their stay with Casai and to see how others engage with their colourful content.
As Homes & Villas by Marriott International are very selective of the professional home management companies they work with, we are extremely proud to have over 70 of our units featured. We will continue to go the extra mile for all of our guests with 24/7 concierge and provide a smooth experience through our in-house technology, prime locations and thoughtful designs to combine the best parts of luxury and locality.
