Local materials—teak, rattan, bamboo, coconut skin—and custom-made furniture create the singular cosmos of each villa.
In Villa Bianca, natural wood acts as a wonderful canvas for exquisite Asian art. Villa Siam is a maximalist fantasy inspired by Thai culture and Buddhism. In the Collector’s Villa, four leading global designers have created a contemporary interpretation of a classic Thai house. And in the Penthouse, one is greeted by a dreamlike space in a one-bedroom structure.
Architecture Graham Lamb
Privacy is king at Iniala, where the architect has crafted large decks with grand dining and living areas as well as...
a 20-meter swimming pool in each of the villas. Interior architect Graham Lamb and a collection of independent visionaries have taken a multifaceted approach that showcases standout architecture, furniture design, and exhibition motifs. The arched roofs of a villa represent “Hands of Welcome”, while the Campana brothers have designed a 22-seat cinema inspired by Thailand’s lush rainforest.
Hotels with Happenings Cook like a local
Iniala’s journey through gastronomy includes a half-day class that will introduce you to local cooking methods.
The day begins with a walk through a local fruit and vegetable market with Iniala Head Chef Dalle, who will acquaint you with Thai cuisine’s infinite ingredients while informing you of the uses for herbs, spices, oils, rice, pastes, and vegetables. You will then return to the resort to prepare a four-course meal that you will be able to enjoy with a bottle of wine for two.
