When envisioning the aesthetic for the forty-four guest rooms, he said that he was inspired by the concept of re-wilding and nature overtaking old buildings. This sense of closeness to nature is evident throughout the hotel facilities, with rooms perched like nests in the canapé of the lush forests that surround the centre.
