Extending over several beachfront hectares on the Gulf of Thailand, X2 Resort Kui Buri (Hua Hin) enfolds its lucky visitors in just a little paradise on earth. It relaxes the eyes with uninterrupted sea views and engages the senses with a combination of indigenous materials and modern lines. This is feng shui meets utopian community in a design by Duangrit Bunnag, for whom simplicity means spatial economy and a lack of complication. Guests can absolutely unwind in 23 villas. These are largely identical with understated furnishings and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto the beach, yet a certain individuality lies in their proximity to the bordering terrace, adjacent pool and neighbouring garden areas.
The resort makes use of invisible wall design – what’s a craggy stone wall to one villa appears as a fence partition to another. Common areas include a large pool, indulgent spa, a fusion restaurant and roof terrace bar that overlooks the sparkling waters of the gulf and a tranquil white-sand beach untouched by development. A smooth wooden boardwalk meanders like a maze through the resort, each twist and turn revealing a new panorama in an environment of unfussed luxury and natural peace.
