BMT Asia Pacific (BMT) has unveiled a coastal living concept that offers more than style and luxury: it promises hotel developers a flexible, readily deployable offering that provides an enthralling experience; able to be presented to discerning holidaymakers around the world.
Entitled SeaScape, this concept of floating villas features clean lines and open air spaces, housed on a stylised triangular pontoon base. Each villa – or module – can exist standalone or as part of a larger integrated complex – modules simply connect together edge-to-edge, producing a number of possible arrangements.
“In the Hotel & Tourism space we know we need to offer not only a unique experience, but also competitive costs and feasible deployment and operation,” notes Richard Colwill, Managing Director of BMT Asia Pacific.
SeaScape is the new modular sister of Sea-Suite, a series of egg-shaped floating villas and beach cabins developed in 2013 by BMT. After noting interest in Sea-Suite from homeowners and developers across oceans, BMT evolved the SeaScape design, in part, to provide the solution to logistical challenges of long-distance shipping and installation at remote sites.
“Our new series of floating villas demonstrates that it is possible to offer exceptional luxury through a simple, yet elegant modular design,” says Mr Colwill.
And luxury it is. A key feature of SeaScape is a superb underwater bedroom. The 4m-diameter cylindrical room formed from high-grade acrylic can be installed within SeaScape, adding a unique resort experience in a market where the truly different is becoming harder and harder to realise.
SeaScape is also functional. Pre-fabricated parts can readily fit into standard shipping containers and allow for simpler and more cost-effective construction. Leveraging BMT’s experience in naval architecture and offshore engineering, materials have been carefully chosen to ensure high quality fabrication and finish.
Mr Colwill comments: “We are very pleased to be introducing SeaScape to the luxury resort market. This addition to BMT’s Floating Villas portfolio offers even more options and flexibility to our customers to develop an unforgettable holiday experience for their guests.”
