The Design

The Bulgari Resort stands atop a cliff like a medieval fortress town, walled and secret. Each villa has its own garden, pool and an outdoor living room of 300 square meters that looks out over the alang alang rooftops (coconut thatch) and the Indian Ocean. The floor plan makes a sharp distinction between the quiet and reserved private area and the glamorously festive social area. The construction faithfully respects local techniques, and each stone has been cut and chiseled on site by hand.
