The original shape of the land has been preserved as much as possible. Ancient
coconut trees (over 60 years old) were kept to maintain the authenticity of
the location. Many trees are incorporated within the design of the Hotel. The
expansive and uncluttered garden is representative of the simplicity of life
one finds when one is open to it. It brings a feeling of peacefulness and serenity
that luxuriant vegetation may not express so effectively.
Placed throughout the Hotels garden and walkways are numerous bonsai trees,
a parallel to the Thai service where each Guest is taken into personal consideration,
with care. On a calm clear night with no rain, you may enjoy counting little
rabbits admiring the yellow full moon. The moon represents a coveted person.
The rabbits are those who crave for this person's heart in vain. This is the
kind of broken-heart phenomenon which may occur to anybody.
Relaxing at dining Sala
The architect has decided to use simple raw materials for the construction
and decoration of the Hotel.Many local craftworks have been used in this process.This
concept creates a blend of simplicity together with the inherent practicality
using materials available on hand. All furnitures were made specifically on
site during the construction. The decor seeks to becalm the senses and plays
down the luxurian. This minimalist environment engenders a certain simplicity
to fullfil ones life without aspiring to excess, a suitably honorable way to
behave in a Buddhist country.
White sand beach
The overall image of the Hotel is a blending of the ancient Javanese house-village
design with a traditional Thai southern slow-slung roof, a structure which impels
the visitor to humbly bow ones head on entry and exit, thus showing respect
to the householder. The two identical stone sculptures in front of the lobby
are not mortars but are fashioned on traditional banana-leaf ceremonial pieces
used for receptions. In Thai they are called Bai Sri and will welcome you right
on your arrival.
Some of the objects and structures of the decoration are the reflection of
local beliefs. The main stairs leading to the Upper Floor recall the design
of the traditional Buddhist temple with its mirrors chasing away the bad spirits
and conversly the Lotus, a holy flower, attracting the good one.
The twin phalluses, for example, well known as Shiva Lueng in Thai, represent
a Hindu God's sexual organ which Samui fishermen have worshipped for long as
their protector against the mischievous Goddess of the sea. The phallus miniatures
however, named Palad Kik, have the same shape as Siva Leung only smaller. Normally
Palad Kik are worn on the body, usually at the waist, and are considered as
magic amulets or lucky charms for the wearer inviting good business and prosperity.
The cubic blocks on the lawn are designed as one-of-a- kind spirit houses
which serve to spiritually protect both staff and guests who stay here. The
cubism is styled after the bases of Buddhist pagodas which are placed atop
