Goa is a union territory of India known for its crystal beaches which attract a host of domestic and international tourists. The number of resorts and hotels in Goa cater to the wide range of tourists and their interests.
VBT Consortium was commissioned to design and conceptualize 68 acres of contoured land with close proximity to the shoreline of Goa into a holistic teaching and rejuvenating spa resort. The varied contours of the property were retained to maintain the natural balance to integrate the living and functional elements into the resort. The experience from the entrance of the resort to the living space either the villas or the rooms was designed to flow sequentially in keeping with the earthy concept of the resort. The steep slopes were retained and villas were strategically integrated to increase service efficiency and accentuate visual appeal.
The core functional elements of the resort such as the lobby, restaurants, spas, teaching spaces and change rooms aiding to the facilities were clustered together to increase service efficiency. The large open areas were landscaped to engage and aide the end users to explore and experience the resort.
