Montara Hospitality Group is creating a vast wellness residential community, with help from the likes of Habita Architects, Arsom Silp Institute of the Arts, P49 Deesign and AvroKO.

Consisting of 298 villas and a wellness resort set in a sprawling hillside setting, this ambitious scheme is certainly turning plenty of heads.

A wellness resort rooted in sustainability

Montara Hospitality Group, the Bangkok-based developer behind the Trisara resort and Phuket’s Michelin-starred Pru restaurant, is now progressing another eye-catching project. The company announced plans last year to invest THB 6.6 billion (US$220 million) into the creation of what it’s billing as Asia’s biggest wellness residential community.

The low-density development spanning over 230 acres will contain 298 villas, anchored by a resort offering expertise in integrative and functional medicine as well as cognitive wellbeing.

The verdant hillside location is the setting for lush gardens and lakes, with landscape design by Under a Tree. The development here is to be built with sustainability in mind and the aim to have net-zero emissions along with LEED certification.

This sustainable approach includes the creation of a tiered wetland filtration system with botanical garden to collect, clean and store water, along with an organic farm cultivated to supply the onsite restaurant, nature trails and renewable energy sources such as the lakes’ floating solar panels.

A multigenerational destination

Among the wellness facilities proposed for the resort are a health centre with consultation rooms, physiotherapy rooms, TCM treatment rooms and a cognitive health centre, as well as health diagnostics facilities for the treatment of residents and guests through tailored programmes.

Guests will be able to meditate in the indoor and outdoor areas of a mindfulness centre on the lake, and retreat to the lakeside spa to make use of its thermal facilities, relaxation areas and hammam – and enjoy treatments in the private spa suites.

These amenities will be joined by a fitness centre with a 50-metre pool, gym, sauna, juice bar and lake pier for water sports. As the resort is aimed at providing a multigenerational experience, younger community members can look forward to taking part in the dedicated teens’ or pre-teens’ clubs.

Accommodation will comprise two- and three-bedroom solar-powered villas, which are to range from 270 to 750 sq m in size. These villas are designed by Habita Architects, a firm known for its nature-inspired work, along with Arsom Silp Institute of the Arts. The interior design will be led by P49 Design and AvroKO.

The site earmarked for development is just 20 minutes from Phuket International Airport. An opening date for the resort has yet to be announced.
