Enchanted Island Resort
Seychelles, a delightful tropical getaway, renowned for its crystal clear azure waters, pristine white beaches, and unspoiled virgin natural features forms the context in which a small island in the Indian Ocean has been turned into an exclusive private island resort.

The design evolved from the conscious decision taken by the client Mr. Sunil Shah and the architects, to restrict the built footprint to a minimum, to make sure that the natural features on site are not disturbed, resulting in a very intimate property of just ten villas.

This painstaking attention to preserving the site is evident in the design of each of the spaces. Every tree, every boulder, and every natural feature was studied and the architecture molded around these in an organic manner, resulting in the creation of highly symbiotic spaces, where the built forms appear to grow out naturally from the ground, as a natural extension of the land.

This sensitive handling of the island & natural constructs is carried forward in the architectural vocabulary of the built spaces. Taking cues from the colonial heritage of Seychelles, the architecture has manifested as quaint sloping-roofed structures that merge with the surrounding environment, in subservience to nature. These are interpreted in a modern regionalistic design aesthetic to provide all the luxuries of a contemporary resort getaway.
