An icon of tropical Modernism, the historic venue that gives us our name, La Concha.
Perla stands out as an emblematic example of Puerto Rico’s national architecture and it was considered an engineering and architectural wonder, a unique space with a shell floating amidst ocean waves overlooking the Atlantic Ocean from every angle. The signature seashell-shaped floating restaurant designed by internationally-renowned architect Mario Salvatori, has been hailed as a marvel of engineering and architecture, and is an architectural treasure.
The iconic undulated curves in the ceiling were designed as a metaphor of the sea. Constructed in cement, made up of double-curved parabolic planes, with the spaces in between covered with glass panes to reflect the concaves of the shell. The reflection of the sea in the glass heightened the illusion of being inside a gigantic shell in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Luxury finishing’s including eight custom Murano lamps that creates a shimmer effect due to the surrounding reflecting pool. The grand entrance is framed by a color stained glass wall and an inner courtyard. The oval shape and crystals walls allows to enjoy sunsets and night scenes surrounded by water that seem to merge into the infinity of the ocean beyond, making Perla the perfect wedding venue with a magical atmosphere and one of a kind in its class in the Caribbean. The space of 5,984 sqft can accommodate events up to 120 guests in round tables and 150 guests for cocktail receptions.
