Trika Villa is a luxury 425 sqm residence with 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a big living/dining room connected to a covered outdoor living space around the integrated pool, a modern kitchen and store rooms, entirely built of natural, sustainable materials, at the same time providing all comforts of modern living with the added factor of “built-in” atmosphere.

The whole roof is made of bamboo with a tar sheet sandwiched between the bamboo shingles for rain protection and insulation, creating open, naturally ventilated spaces. The walls are made of adobe bricks with a very fine earth finishing, the floor is partly rammed earth, partly a clay-concrete mix. An original Indian door gives the whole project its oriental touch. Trika Villa is a tropical sanctuary with modern luxury that surrounds you with nature inside and outside.
