Design insight: Floor and underfoot experience as the differentiator

The true hallmark of a beach hotel is its ability to thematically connect to the sea – experiencing it without even getting wet. 

The brief to the design team was to create an interior ecosystem that had the soul of Goa, while proudly cultivating international standards of luxury.

A beach resort sees an interesting overlap of roles. A guest who is a corporate executive in the conference room in the morning can turn into a vacationer at the beach by afternoon. So the design should provide a seamless experience through this shift of roles.

Result: The essence of Goa through underfoot comfort and visual beauty

The beachfront hotel is a new and premium feather in the cap for Goa’s hospitality industry. 

While the eyes can enjoy the spectacular views of the Arabian sea from the hotel room, the feet can luxuriate in the calm tactile comfort of the floor. 

The project is an apt example of how a truly delightful guest experience starts with the feet.
