A dazzling addition to the lushly tropical Khao Lak region of Thailand, this tranquil beachfront resort of 36 low-rise villas provides spacious privacy in unspoiled surroundings. A heady amalgamation of minimalism and cutting-edge architecture, the resort features an intimate spa and expansive gardens. The villas by VaSLab Architecture each have their own private pool, and the expert staff here provides genuine Thai hospitality to those in search of the hotel's pervading philosophy of “rest and relaxation.”
MADE BY ORIGINALS
Thanks to his enviable business acumen and trend-predicting abilities, Sompong Dowpiset has gone from door-to-door salesman to Thailand’s top importer of European bathroom products. He is now chairman of the Haco Group, with Casa de La Flora proudly representing his fourth hotel, one that exemplifies the close-knit teamwork between him and the Bangkok-based VaSLab design studio.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Casa de La Flora is a work of architectural Brutalism, characterized by white cubic villas, concrete, and clean angularity. Though partly softened by landscape design team T.R.O.P.’s turfed roofs and topiary that flanks many of the villas, the property retains its raw geometric aesthetic and differs greatly from traditional beachside hotels. All villas feature private pools and secluded patios or balconies to ensure that guests can enjoy the hotel’s luxuries in private. The interiors are minimalist, with monochromes, natural materials such as teakwood, and subtle lighting by APLD, while large windows and the resort’s foyer with direct sea access ensure that barriers between interior and exterior spaces are also kept to a minimum.
