Clay Pool Cottage
Inspired by the ‘Pa-Ta-Pea’ (Earth) clan, this cottage promotes their belief that staying connected to the earth improves one’s health. The clan would traditionally incorporate earth into their walls, roofs and even furniture. With course-finished walls, clay decorations and distinctive tribal designs, these influences can be seen all through the villa.
Tent Pool Villa
This villa is inspired by the ‘Khon-Jorn’ (Wanderer) who were a tribe that specialised in hunting and trading. Its tented roof is a subtle nod towards their nomadic lifestyle and provides a sleek feel. The interior of this villa displays a motif of wildlife that is apparent in its choice of materials and furnishings. These villas provide amazing vistas of the forest with a partial view of the ocean.
Tree Pool House
This villa is inspired by the ‘We-ha’ (Sky) clan of Phuket who worshipped the universe. They lived in the trees to be closer to the sky, believing it would give them more creativity and liberty. These beliefs are reflected in this villa with its upper floor master bedroom, suspended furniture and through its use of wood throughout the accommodation. The bathroom includes a stand-alone bathtub and an outdoor shower.
Birds Nest Pool Villa
This villa was inspired by the Rung-Nok (Nest) clan who lived ‘opulent’ lives. They were believed to be intellectuals and creatives: artists, astrologers and philosophers. To them, astrology was the key to understanding the future, often bathing under the moonlight to replenish their souls. Their pursuit of the finer aspects of life is portrayed by this villa’s intricate birds nest exterior.
