International Beach Resort of the Year

VommuliIsland, Maldives

Our design redefines the luxury resort experience as a time well used by the very fortunate. We chose to delight the senses through education, creating awareness, and new paradigms of interacting with the physical environment.

Thus, paradise is emotionally and intellectually experienced and enjoyed, but with a profound awareness of the complex relationships of the eco systems being inhabited. 

The island is surrounded by a large ‘House Reef’, and is defined by several distinct ecological zones: Lagoon, beach, coastal and jungle. These zones become the basis of creating experiential programs that will guide the guests through their journey of discovery and awareness creation. 77 Villas are divided up into these experiential zones.  Each zone has unique anchoring activities: The Lagoon zone has a water amphitheater and a signature spa, the Beach zone has two signature restaurants, the jungle zone has a nature discovery center and a pop up cafe, the coastal zone has a dive centre and a signature bar.

Threading through these activities is an art trail where the seasonal work of artists in residence showcase pop up installations using found objects and locally sourced materials to demonstrate the virtues of upcycling and recycling.
