The Casa De La Flora Resort In Thailand

Each villa is complete with a private pool, a small garden, seaside view, and a 24-hour butler service. The layout of the 36 villa resort is designed to provide each guest ample privacy while maximizing their view. VaSLab achieved the balance by designing each villa as a monolithic rectangular frame structure with floor to ceiling glass windows. To provide each guest a scenic view, the villas were then stacked in rows up ascending the hill.

The team chose natural materials such as planks of wood, stone, concrete, and rock partitions, fusing them together to add warmth and local relevance to the modern design. Sets of solar panels were integrated into the design, unseen by the resort guests and rainwater is collected to achieve a sustainable initiative.

The concept of meshing nature with the design is apparent as VaSLab allowed for existing plant life to naturally flourish within the common and private pool areas, and in La Arunya, the outdoor restaurant. Casa De La Flora likes to think that they successfully “blend privacy, peace, beauty, nature, and comfort together with style, sewing it on a trendy silver plate.” After getting a peek at the resort, we’re not going to argue with that!
