Coco Beach was done for Sun International and hotel magnate Sol Kerzner. The 320 room hotel is the conversion of an existing unfinished structure. The main space was created by demolishing a central 4-storey circular tower and roofing over with a new canvas roof. The bedroom blocks existed and were restored.
1500 mature coconut trees were transplanted around the main building and pool whilst the existing vegetation was preserved and reinforced. The hotel was handed over in 7 months. (in collaboration with Fugleberg Koch of Orlando, Florida).
