This 5* hotel broke new ground with its extensive list of environmental-friendly features. The construction of the hotel incorporated ‘green’ walls to shade and keep cool all access balconies, utilized passive ventilation techniques in public spaces to stimulate natural airflow, and installed sun incidence modelling and large overhanging balconies to reduce solar heat gain to individual rooms.
Moreover, green roofs, low-energy consumption LED light fittings and water saving features are prominent in the design and construction. Also indigenous landscaping has been an integral part of the architectural design to create an experience that is unique to Thailand and also ensures minimal irrigation.
Overall, the hotel is designed with total relaxation in mind, with a sophisticated feel. All the 172 rooms, suites and villas feature floor-to-ceiling windows and spectacular views of either the pool or the surrounding lush hills.
