It's bold, it's contemporary and it sits proudly on the wild coastline of an island often referred to as one of the 'four corners of the earth'.
The clean, sharp lines are in direct contract with the crashing waves of the North Atlantic that surround it but it works. This masterpiece of architecture is much more than simply a place to stay. The inn was built as a community asset and is a vital part of the island, all of the operating profits are reinvested into the community ensuring this is fully sustainable for future generations.
Fogo Island Inn defines a 'sense of place' and was designed to stand out yet fit with the Newfoundland aesthetic. Alongside 29 guest suites you'll find a dining room, bar, lounge and tea room. The first floor houses a contemporary art gallery, curated by Fogo Island Arts, whilst on the second floor there's a heritage library, cinema, gym and a reading room. Wood-fired hot sauna's and open air hot tubs grace the top floor.
29 guest suites beckon you in with floor to ceiling windows embracing the magnificent, panoramic sea to sky views.
Deliberately designed to inspire the rooms here are a modern nod to Newfoundland style and decor. Pale wooden floors, locally made furniture and fabrics in bright colours make these rooms warm and welcoming but nothing ever detracts from the view.
Many rooms have wood-burning stoves, whilst the suites offer expansive living space and soaking bathtubs, some are multi-level.
