Ko Samui, in Thailand, is known for its webbed beaches, crystal clear waters, and lush nature. The Sala Samui Chaweng Beach Resort, a creation of the Onion architectural firm, offers a choice of oceanfront and private luxury rooms. A space where it is good to relax away from the din of everyday life.
Initially, a question. How would the residents of Sala Samui Chaweng Beach Resort like to live? Then an observation. That of the lunar cycle which punctuates our lives. It is from there that Onion creates an establishment designed, like the moon, to play with light, shadow and all the nuances that separate them. Its luxury villas overlook the beach and are havens of tranquility. Its four pool-villas are luxurious. Within its 3-storey building, each of its 52 sur-mer rooms has a personalized interior and its private swimming pool: intimate for the suites on the first floor, overlooking the beach for those on the upper floors. Everywhere, a feeling of freedom. Nothing guides the pace but the mood of the guests. The circular shapes of water features and the areas surrounding them have no beginning or end. At nighttime, the lighting casts a moonlit light on the shimmering surfaces. The courtyard serves as a luminous place to stay from where you can enjoy the dreamy oceanic panorama. The latter, moreover, is in the spotlight everywhere, like a masterpiece that adorns even the smallest interior space. Everything here is said in curves and in white. Thus, luxury is expressed in the absence of rigidity and colors. Only nature dominates there.
