The five wisdoms of the BuddhaAbhaya - fearlessness, Dharmachakra - the wisdom of dharma, Varada - giving and sharing, Dhyana - unity with oneself and Bhumisparsha - oneness with the earth, are expressed in the public spaces. These wisdoms guide the spiritual journey from self to divinity and are expressed through symbolism and material in each space.


The thematic architectural style of the hotel follows the unique framework of “The Vajradhatu Mandala”- a symbolic representation of a palace, which houses five Dhyani Buddhas.

The hotel has five residential blocks overlooking five spectacular water bodies, symbolizing serenity and tranquility. Each block is named after a different color and has eight rooms at ground floor and eight at the upper level. Each room is furnished with a plush divan and soft bolsters offering unsurpassed comfort.

The lobby and reception area represents Abhaya (fearlessness). The cream palette of the reception walls, beige stone flooring, green color furnishing and the abstract rain mural on the walls all evoke the Buddhist wisdom and emotion of fearlessness.

The Lounge symbolizes Dharmachakra (Dharma) and exemplifies its essence through the use of chakra, the color white and the season of Autumn in the furnishings.
