Taia Wind Resort, Roatan

Hospitality Architecture

Twelve parcels are joined together to create a beach front resort on the south shore of Roatan Island. The property includes a beach area and protected lagoon, a palm grove as an extension of the beach for beachfront guest facilities and beachfront accommodations, a hillside jungle where single unit accommodations occupy clearings in the vegetation, a mangrove adjacent to a freshwater pond where an interpretive trail and small research facility are planned. Jungle accommodations and access ways are elevated, built on piers to preserve the native flora, and within the tree canopy. Beachfront constructions, also set in clearings, are elevated to accommodate tidal extremes and sand movement. Parking is off-site with only electric shuttles allowed to access the site.
