Architecture

BUILT AROUND NATURE

Instead of opting for traditional Thai bungalows or a blocky high-rise, Duangrit Bunnag created a forest of stone and glass villas. If his plans overlapped with a mature tree, Bunnag would work around them. The result is that the villas appear scattered across the valley, with well-established trees sprouting up from the gaps. 

At the center of The Naka are four wooden pavilions, while the pagoda-like lobby is built around a series of upright columns, making the most of natural ventilation.

Inside, plain cuboid forms synchronize with the villas’ straight edges. Amber-colored floorboards run parallel to the hillside, and pure-white corner sofas invite guests to kick off their shoes and admire the view. Even the beds, scattered with cherry-scented petals, are aligned so that guests can watch the waves, listen to the rustle of the trees, and find their inner equilibrium.

Interior Design

PRIVACY IS PRIORITY

The low-profile villas (available with one, two and three bedrooms) make privacy a priority. Their wide glass façades are hidden among the trees, with simple stone walls adding to the sense of seclusion. From the private pools outside, guests can admire Bunnag’s bold cantilever design, which leaves bedrooms and lounging areas floating in midair.
