Modern nako louvres are used throughout the resort to seamless blend in with the tropical architecture with the use of logs as simple columns and mangrove sticks used for screens echo the projects simplicity and eco-friendly approach to the exterior aesthetics. Drawing inspiration from “Musafir” – an Arabic word portraying the concept of wanderlust and the colourful lifestyle of a nomad, the interior design of the resort incorporates discreet, calming touches to complement contemporary Maldivian design evident across many of the resorts architectural features and unique pieces of art. Thoughtfully placed in guest rooms and restaurants you will find vibrant colours woven into the finishings such as the Maldivian lacquer boxes, the bright colours and the bright tapestries adorning the walls.
