A restful and secluded resort aside the Caribbean Ocean...
An opulent boutique hotel nestled peacefully among the urban landscape...
A discriminating and tranquil spa that pampers and invigorates...
A refined private residence that plays host to auspicious gatherings...

The expert, passionate team of Vision Design, led by Dan Nelson, understands the nuances that culminate in a rare and vital purpose—crafting environments that provide the backdrop for life’s most enriching experiences.

Originating as a part of the renowned Rosewood family of companies in 1992, Dan Nelson and Vision Design have more than twenty years of award-winning experience in the hospitality market worldwide. Dan had the rare, valuable experience of working with Rosewood Hotels and Resorts operations as the company was defining a new style of luxury experience. Budgets and timetables were strictly followed, and materials had to be of a five-star quality and style, while meeting exacting standards and specifications for durability.

“We created magnificent properties,” Dan says, “and it set the bar for what Vision does today.” In 2003, Dan amicably purchased Vision Design broadening the firm’s business to include a global clientele with a special emphasis on luxury properties. Vision serves hotel owners and operators such as Starwood, Oriental Express and The Venetian/ Sands. Vision’s range of expertise includes hotels, resorts, spas, restaurants and residential commissions.

Whether creating the interiors of an art collector’s residence, or the grand lobby of a five-star hotel in Macau, Dan Nelson reflects the clients’ individual tastes with exquisite design and execution beyond their expectations. As a full service firm, Vision has the resources, expertise and experience to design new projects from conception to completion, or to instill new life into an existing property with an extraordinary renovation. Manufacturers and vendors sourced from Dan's extensive travels add another level of expertise to the firm.

Vision’s client base includes worldwide luxury brands and many are award-winning, for example:

“The Reefs resort in Southampton, Bermuda is quite a special property, so we had to choose the best designer with the right aesthetic to maximize the beauty of the waterfront location. We chose Dan Nelson’s Vision Design and we’re certainly glad we did. He brought the project in on time, on budget and the word most used to describe the look of the resort is Ãbreathtaking”. In the process, everyone at Vision gave us excellent personal service. We could tell they are passionate about their work. It shows.”
