ALILA CALICUT

Kerala, India

On the banks of the Chaliyar River in Kerala, this luxury holiday resort includes a 131-room hotel and a residential development of 27 villas set around a lagoon.

Inspired by the courtyard typologies of Indian temples and palaces, the centre of the resort takes from a series of courtyard buildings clad in black granite, with shaded gardens and meandering routes, patios and walkways. The residential villas are organised as ribbons along the perimeter of the site and, in play on Keralan vernacular architecture, are of timber construction with clay tile roofs covering elevated verandas and balconies.
