The villas, each occupying prime locations along the resorts’ beach, are furnished in a contemporary interpretation of colonial styles and textures. Rich timbers and veneers are mixed with cane and rattan, while fabrics and furnishings have accents with an Indian theme. The villas’ most stricking features are their artworks and artefacts, with illuminated door panels inspired by antique Indian carvings and traditional Vrindavan lamps by the pool.
The palette ranges across warm interiors reminiscent of sunsets, through to cooler exteriors where the tones reference the surrounding ocean and gardens. Basalt stone has been used extensively in the flooring, as a reference to the traditional stone bases of Mauritian plantation houses, with feature walls rendered with plaster blended with bagasse – a fibre obtained from crushing sugar cane – to provide a tactile surface quality with tonal interest.
