Akram Sultan

The German-Indian muralist Akram Sultan has contributed a lot to the design of the rooms in the Hotel Exquisit. He is strongly influenced by the culture of his father, originated in India. However, in the paintings of Akram Sultan the story "Siddharta" by Hermann Hesse plays an important role. In this story the main character goes his own way, frees himself from social predestination and finally finds himself and Buddha.

His unique paintings decorate the walls of our swimming pool and relaxation area. With the incomparable view of the breathtaking mountain landscape you can enjoy quiet moments and let your mind wander.
