Inspired by luxury beach resorts

According to Axis Architects, which won the award for Design Excellence, Coco Palms “takes its inspiration from some of the world’s most exclusive resorts, such as the Maldives, the Caribbean and Fiji; combining the comforts of home with the laidback charms of a luxury beach resort”. As such, the development has extensive water features, with the central feature being an organic-shaped grand lagoon pool with “sunken pods”. There are four other pools in the development: a salt-water pool, a hydrotherapy pool with massage jets, a 50m lap pool and a children’s play pool.
The development also has a three-level clubhouse, with function rooms and gourmet hall, gym, games room and audio-visual room for screening of movies.
