Wabi-sabi Boutique Puket AWabi Sabi Boutique Hotel Kamala Phuket is a 4 star international boutique-class hotel with 38 spacious all-suites keys with 9 categories ranging from 50m² up to 110m². The philosophy of wabi-sabi is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional. Khun Suthit Wangrungarun, Managing Director of Bangkok-based Form Architect was given the task in creating the essence of wabi-sabi in an urban space where none existed, within or without. The end result is a transformation of disparate elements into one of aesthetic harmony. One leaves the rumble and roar of city life on the streets to a haven of solitude in the sky of Andaman Seas Paradise beach.

The motto “Less is more and luxury” is used to describe his aesthetic tactic of arranging the necessary components of a building to create an impression of extreme simplicity—he enlisted every element and detail to serve multiple visual and functional purposes. Wabi originally referred to the loneliness of living in nature, remote from society; sabi meant “chill”, “lean” or “withered”. The architect and designers worked together in the suites to achieve simplicity, using white elements, cold lighting, large spaces with minimum objects and furniture. Minimalist architecture simplifies living space to reveal the essential quality of buildings and conveys simplicity in attitudes toward life. It is highly inspired by Japanese traditional design and the concept of Zen philosophy.

Wabi-Sabi Kamala Boutique hotel’s all suites room features include simple Zen@Wabi-Sabi spacious, aesthetics, flat screen TVs, wireless Internet, in-room safes, crisp linen, a coffee machine, tea boxes selection and luxury toiletries.
