Island Luxury Resort
Hornberger + Worstell provided master planning services for a luxury resort located along a 3 kilometer stretch of pristine beach in Southwest Thailand. The plan includes a hotel, spa, and a collection of villas and large private homes situated around a lagoon and 18-hole golf course. Each component was situated to take advantage of the most attractive views and site features.
The luxury lagoon hotel is approached by a pine-lined roadway that crosses a bridge revealing dramatic views of the lagoon and glimpses of the surrounding hotel villas nestled into trees at the water’s edge. Each villa is carefully situated to provide privacy and views. The marina, yacht, and sea plane basin have a separate arrival sequence and identity. Guests approach the marina center along a palm-lined drive, traveling past intermittent, framed golf course views. The marina buildings are positioned and shaped to surround the boat berths and to embrace the crescent-shaped landings and breakwaters.
