By entering the Orange Hotel for the first time, you start a real journey : an immersive trip into the heart of a traditional and ancestral folklor – the well-known Carnivals of the central region!
Real popular event, the Carnival has its origins in the aboriginal rites when our ancestors were celebrating the end of the winter by dancing to make darkness leave. According to the Christian traditions, the Carnival is also just before the beginning of the Fast, period of abstinence. To be ready to afford this period, people celebrates the Mardi-Gras (Binche Carnival – recognized Unesco Heritage), eating and drinking a lot. In the same way, a festive break is planned during the Fast and its limitations: the days of Laetare (La Louviere Carnival).
The originality of the Orange Hotel concept is bound to this grotesque universe. The orange from which is born the name of our hotel is by itself a whole symbolism. During the celebration of the Carnival, all the eyes are turned to the central character of the party: the Gille. Dressed in its traditional costume, sometimes masked or covered with its giant feathered hat, the Gille welcomes the visitor by throwing oranges to the crowd. Oranges represent the abundance, the fertility and the return of the spring.
This is thus in an original and elegant chromatic universe on this Carnival theme that we’re going to accompany you during your stay. By little touches, the orange, tonic and “vitamin” color, is deployed in the design and is mixed with the grey or the brown present on the grounds, walls and furniture. All our rooms are unique, personalized by frescoes and alternate colors. The same frescoes are extracted from the gigantic scenography located in the breakfast hall.
