An Eastern Teak Paradise Enclave in the Bahamas: Nandana Resort

amazing Nandana Resort An Eastern Teak Paradise Enclave in the Bahamas: Nandana Resort

Designed by de Reus Architects in the style of an Asian beach resort and set within an exclusive, gated enclave at the far West End of Grand Bahama island, the oceanfront Nandana is composed of five Villa Suites located around a central Main Hall. All of the buildings are constructed from natural materials with limestone covered exteriors, copper roofs and – most importantly – massive amounts of yacht quality Burmese teak used on the interior floors, walls and ceilings as well as much of the exterior.

The numerous decks which surround each villa, the Main Hall and the 120 ft. infinity edge pool are also constructed from teak , much of which was reclaimed from decommissioned sailing vessels which had previously operated in Asia. The dock area is also constructed with teak decking and contains three slips capable of accommodating yachts up to 110 feet (larger vessels can be berthed at an adjacent marina). The extensive teak work at the resort was done by Teak Solutions, a company which sent 20 of its ship carpenters from Germany to the Bahamas to build Nandana. The project team lived on site for two years.  More than 300 teak logs  languishing in Burma and containers of reclaimed teak from sailing vessels, were purchased by Teak Solutions, transported to India where they were milled and then shipped to the resort site in the Bahamas.
