We originally presented the client with three design concepts for Hoi An Marriott in Vietnam – each featuring a distinctive configuration of landscape elements. The preferred option places emphasis on incorporating as much native greenery as possible and creating a garden feel throughout the resort. Views of the water from the rooms are enhanced through a thoughtful plan that avoids placing trees along main view corridors.
Hoi An Marriott features a stretch of exclusive beachfront that sits along open ocean area. With the aim of mitigating less than ideal water conditions during inclement weather and maximizing beach time for guests, an elevated sandbank was added to increase the depth of the beach and act as a buffer. Other water activities on the resort include main, family, and quiet pools. A meandering lazy creek runs through the site, connecting spaces and amenities. Further connections are made to surrounding local attractions to engage guests with the local culture. A host of rich amenities cater to the needs of the resort’s range of guests, which include mostly families and couples looking for short and long-term accommodations.
