R e s o r t s

Our approach to this site was to recreate the experience of the palm plantation spreading down from the mountain slopes to touching the beach edge. Palm lined pedestrian view corridors provide continuous resort landscape connecting all villas to the beach and sea.

Specific resort landscape strategies are also proposed to capture the character of the palm grove and its collection and reuse of rainwater in the waterscapes of the resort experience. Another strategy employed was to recreate the palm thatched roof forms on all buildings, softening the overall look and feel of the built form within the landscape environment.

The resort is proposed as a walking experience, with the main facilities all centrally located within the site plan. Arrival and reception look towards the sea and the created village center.

Within this cluster there is a diverse collection of building forms (reminiscent of a traditional village form) accommodating the restaurants, spa, and other resort amenities adjacent the significant resort pool that meets the beach edge. The low scale of this resort (all two-level building forms) will become dominated by the continuous palm canopy and its welcomed shade.
