In the Eighties, Nineties and Naughties south-east Asia became the go-to destination for back-packers and adventure holidaymakers from Europe, the US and the Antipodes. Staying in driftwood shacks or under the stars they would take home wonderful carefree stories and a liking for the local beverage brands. Our brief was to rekindle those old fires and although these nomads have become sophisticated and discerning consumers, we have strived to create an environment that will help them shake off the shackles of conformity and encourage their carefree spirit and unfettered joie de vivre to re-emerge.
To achieve this, our driving force has been to establish a Driftwood Paradise populated with Five Star Beach Shacks within and around which guests can enjoy an intimate experience with the nature of the forest and the wonders of the sea. We have curated space that is generous in volume and can open up to the forest and the view but can also be climate controlled and insect free when desired. The lightness and openness has been achieved by engineering finely detailed roofs floating on slender prefabricated steel structures and infilled with glass wall panels that can open seamlessly to the landscape backdrop. The gardens afford natural privacy and a sense of being intimately enveloped by the forest, further enhanced by minimalist décor rendered in soothing earthen-tones that meld gracefully with the surroundings and breathtaking views.
