    Hidden in an ancient valley on the western edge of Phuket, The Naka Phuket is Duangrit Bunnag's most daring hotel to date, with 94 glass-built villas cantilevering out from the mountainside. An outdoor pool is attached to each of the secluded living spaces, offering guests all the privacy they need to find their natural equilibrium. At the rooftop spa, which overlooks the forest and the ocean, cicadas provide the spellbinding soundtrack to soothing body scrubs and massages. Guests can also unwind in the hotel's Olympic-sized infinity pool, or feel the powder-fine sand between their toes on the wave-lapped private beach. Tantalizing fresh market produce is served at the hotel's three restaurants, including The Nava, which sits along a natural watercourse that Bunnag ingeniously integrated into his final design. Here, as in the rest of the hotel, there's a sense of being cocooned in a secret valley. Privacy and serenity are guaranteed, but for those seeking adventure, Phuket City is only a 20-minute taxi ride away.

    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.

    Made by Originals

    Duangrit Bunnag

    After designing private residences, high-rise condos, and office blocks at Thai firm Architects 49, Duangrit Bunnag established his own practice, known simply as DBALP. From the company's 28th-floor office on Bangkok's Siam Square, Bunnag has built a reputation for bold, minimalist projects, and is now hot property on Thailand's ever-expanding hotel scene. The Naka, which sees him slotting simplistic spaces into a complex natural environment, is a perfect illustration of how much he likes to test himself. As Bunnag said, "It's going to be huge in Phuket."
