Hamilton Island, Queensland
Client: Oatley Family (Hamilton Island Enterprises)
Pike Withers was appointed to design the interiors for a new six star luxury resort on Hamilton Island. The hotel consists of 60 villas with plunge pools, a restaurant, bar, pool bar and spa/tranquility centre. The resort was completed in 2007 after a 20-month construction period and is now one of the most exclusive resorts in the country.
The brief was clear. Keep it simple and natural. And Australian. Sydney design studio Pike Withers worked with rosewood, limestone and basalt to do just that. The lines are clean and the soft furnishings provide just a dash of colour.
