The central facilities and 94 villas of the development mirror the surrounding landscape, with the leisure and conference facilities are nestled in three separate pavilions which mimic the sand dunes framing the resort. This organic quality of the architecture is marked by a curved shape of the complex, its colors, patterns, textures and finishes. Elements of rural and traditional architecture merge with modern design.

The resort is surrounded by an infinity lagoon pool which meanders alongside a communal fire pit and sun beds. The architects included over 65,000 new native trees and plants into the project and used conventional structures and finishes to respond to budget constraints.
