Details from X2 Resort, Koh Samui.

We have been staying at the X2 Resort in the island of Koh Samui in Thailand.
It’s part of Design Hotels and is an orgie of huge palm trees, wooden elements and lots of sweet concrete.
For me it brings back memories of Brazil. The arcitecture mixed with nature.
Here are some details that I really enjoy.
Tomorrow I think I will show you the bigger picture.

Detail from the shower which has a backlite- it creates a dramatic effect I think is stuning!

Imagine a house without windows or doors – just open space.
Growing up in Sweden that’s unthinkable.
I love the way that the legs of the tables in the restaurant bend in different ways.

Concrete jungle!

The curtains are all made of heavy linen. And about 30 cm to long. Loving it!

Even if the power is cut you can do it in style.

Sitting on the lo watching the bamboo garden. I wanna do this in the country place in Sweden.
No magazines are needed with a great view.

Around the pool there is a normal plastic drainage. Just smartly covered up with stones.

As if the pool wasn’t enough. A bath in plain air. And the vivid art the moist makes in the concrete.

It’s nice to stay at a place a bit more minimalistic than what I normally enjoy at home.

    Absolutely otherworldly, it’s tough to believe that this place actually exists :)

    Whoa. Nice to see X2 in the style of Samui. I visited X2 Rayong just before xmas and re-lax-ed. The resort was so quiet it reminded me of summer cottage weedends in Finland :) I loved the combination of warm concrete and hot sand under bare feet. http://www.flickr.com/photos/essisofia/tags/x2/
