Melding local culture with European influence, the all-inclusive resort combines classic and organic elements to produce a series of immersive day-to-night experiences. The conscious design brings an environmental awareness, cultural respect and appreciation for nature to guests as spaces inspire and entertain. The w-shaped building is framed by the formality of clustered coconut trees and linearity of fountains while organic gardens, playful water features and greenways are sited on diagonal paths to draw people through the property. Six freshwater pools include adult-only and family-friendly options along with an island waterpark and a two-tiered, infinity-edge alternative. Light, shade and color are masterfully applied throughout each space and contrasting hardscape tones enhance the landscape palette.

EDSA elevated the aesthetics and functionality of the property while addressing water capture and filtration, land use density, operation efficiencies and improved local employment. The design team continued through with detailing of the entertainment village, spa and a series of plazas that connects the entire complex.
