Inspired by the impressions created by waves, the Novotel Resort in Goa forms to reflect the Goan sand beaches and textures. This is highlighted through the overall interior envelope and beige flooring in a dune pattern. The voluminous lobby surrounded by room corridors proved to be a major acoustical and privacy concern, which was tackled by creating vertical green walls parallel to the corridors. Local flavour is added to the lobby with the help of a colourful fabric shade over the bar counter and light fixtures with waterfall designs. Design elements with Portugal influences add to the charm.
