Showcase: Alila Diwa Goa
AWA is pleased to showcase its work on Alila Diwa Goa, a sought-after destination for serenity and relaxation among a richly verdant atmosphere. Tradition Goan design provides the foundation for its contemporary elegance. Amenities such as culinary exquisite dining areas, spas, and a lap pool, craft this enclave of exclusivity for the most discerning guests. This 200-room resort has four bars/restaurants, a conference facility, a health spa and two swimming pools.
AWA was chosen because we can engage in designing a “hand-crafted” project where the lighting design is a bespoken solution for the project in question, and not recycled design ideas from other projects. We were also chosen because of our experience set in different parts of the world- US, Middle-East, South Asia and the Far-East. We had completed a few high-end hospitality projects internationally, and we could develop and relate our designs to the local settings.
Positioned to capture the essence of the Alila Diwa experience, AWA sought to create a fully immersive experience in which illumination, from the full plan to the material of the light fixtures, would capture each guest’s curiosity with a display beauty, and emphasize the serenity, luxury and romance ever-present in the resort. In tandem with this design intent, the project was to attain green globe status through balanced utilization and preservation of local resources, and through reduction of light pollution.
