This is why they spared no expense in crafting a masterpiece.Gary Fell of Gfab Architects was entrusted to design Samujana. His grand vision for the project began with the idea of preserving the incredible site while building the villas around natural features he encountered. This means several villas have mature trees and rock formations incorporated into the residences.Budget and space were no obstacle for Fell, who was empowered to make each villa perfect in its own, unique way. Residences do share some similarities. For example, the living spaces surrounding the pool, including the living room, dining room, and kitchen, are incredibly large to add a feeling of liberty and openness.An important decision was made to use sturdy, hardwearing natural materials in each villa instead of imported designer items. This goes back to the importance of preserving the site and creating something magical as opposed to a place that was luxurious but familiar. Luxury can come in many forms. However, it’s provided in a way You’ve never experienced before at Samujana.There have been no compromises when it comes to the specifications and building materials used in the villas. Each one features superb quality kitchens and bathrooms that are interwoven with the open spaces. Select villas even contain cinemas and gyms for an extra level of luxury.
