Naman Retreat is designed as a tropical green resort complex, modern but peaceful. In an area of 3.4ha, the mission is to harmonize 80 bungalows, hotels, 6 VIP villas and other 20 villas. The concept of resort is providing physical and mental treatment for the long stay guests by the nature friendly environment and healthy activities such as spa, yoga, beach sports and so on. To achieve a perfect atmosphere that enables the guests a maximum body and mind purification and relaxation, the resort was designed by harmonious mix of greenery, natural stone and bamboo.

The beach bar

Facing the infinity pool and located right next to the sand beach there is a beach bar. This sheltered semi opened space was designed to provide the area for relaxation where guests can enjoy drinks infront of the pool with a direct view to the beach. This pitched roof building has an intentionally very simple structure that doesn’t disturb view from the restaurant and yet attract the guests to come and have a drink after a dinner.

The shelter of the bar is designed by the bamboo and stone. The stone part accommodates the service facilities and storage for the need of the bar. The stone walls also function as a part of the bearing support for the bamboo roof. The main structure of the pitched roof is created by eight bamboo frames. Each of these frames consist of bended and straight bamboos that are connected by bamboo nails and ropes. These frames are designed perpendicular to the beach which allows the wind to go through the whole bar providing a nice breeze from the sea.

The bamboo poles used for the structure were all naturally treated in situ. The process consists of the bending by fire, soaking in the water and fumigation. This procedure took 4 months, to achieve better quality of the bamboo. After this process, the frames were prefabricated on the ground which increases the precision of each frame and decreases the construction time. This construction method was proven to be very efficient and the quality control during the construction much more easier. The roofing material is a natural thatch roof. This material creates a very tropical image together with the green landscape around the building that enhance the relaxed atmosphere of the resort.
