Geraldine Dohogne of Phum Baitang Cambodia (pictured) says the resort focuses on features that ensure total relaxation: quiet air-conditioning, dimmers to create various atmospheres, and a firm and thick mattress with quality linen.
Use colours inspired by the landscape; Nihiwatu uses terracotta-hues, greens and blues, whereas Trisara opts for a dark brown-and-white colour scheme, in the form of teak furniture and white orchids.
The interior designers of the Nihiwatu resort in Indonesia, suggest using materials such as rope, woven fabric and wood. “The authenticity of artisanal accessories such as handmade baskets and traditional ikat prints will also add character,” they say.
“Incredible views, privacy, and spaciousness make up the villa experience,” says Anthony Lark of beachfront resort Trisara Phuket. “Imagine your home as part of a garden. Your bed should face a view and the interior should be simple.”
