It’s the most exciting new opening in the Caribbean in 2022: the beachfront Aire de O:live, the third hotel from Puerto Rico’s renowned O:live brand. 

The brainchild of owners and hoteliers Loisse Herger and Fernando Davila, Aire de O:live is a transformation of the former San Juan Water and Beach Club in Isla Verde, the hotel has already debuted a number of floors as its renovation continues. 

For now, it’s an ultra-exclusive, ultra-cool hotel-within-a-hotel, with the complete revamp set to conclude soon.

And the Kumo rooftop is already one of the most sought-after hotspots in all of San Juan, with an all-day menu and endless energy overlooking the Atlantic. 

The team calls Aire de O:live “an earthy habitat for the modern sun seeker,” with the O:live brand’s signature high-design aesthetic and endless thoughtful details across the property.

The look is all about the earthy and the handmade with textured natural materials: wood, rattan, cotton and stone. 

Herger calls it a style “firmly set in modern organic minimalism.”

It’s also, uniquely for an urban hotel, focused on sustainability, with low-energy lightbulbs, ceramic water bottles in the rooms (refilled every day) and even vegan toiletries. 

As for Kumo, it’s from the culinary force behind Puerto Rico’s celebrated Yoko restaurant in Old San Juan by Chef Jose Miguel Melendez.

When it’s complete, it will include a total of 80 rooms. 

The new hotel joins Herger and Davila’s now-renowned O:live Boutique Hotel and OLV Fifty Five, both of which are set on the Lagoon in Condado.
