Telunas Island Geo Resort
TELUNAS ISLAND GEO-RESORT in the Riau Islands of Indonesia provided us the exciting opportunity to design an ecologically sensitive resort on a pristine tropical island paradise. Working closely with local craftsmen we designed all of the structures in the familiar construction vernacular of their traditional over-water fishing villages. Great care was taken to work with the site conditions to minimally disturb the landscape and be as self-sustaining as possible. Amenities include a lodge; over water chalets with raised boardwalks; spa; swimming pool; cabana bar; watercraft pavilion, staff housing, and native plant landscaping.
