La Gaulette, Mauritius
Creating a new model of luxury resort living, everything is considered, from the macro down to the micro and the same attention is lavished on the finer details, the views and the materials as on the overall masterplan. The 250-room hotel, and 200 timeshare hotel apartments will contain a land and water spa facility, reached via a pier that floats above the coral reef. Further up the mountainside an elegant cluster of villas, with dramatic views over the ocean and the golf course, are discreetly inserted into the vegetation with some containing their own infinity pools. Situated within private gardens, the built impact of the villas is minimal and from a distance, they appear to retreat into the landscape.
