A Touch of DUO at the Magnificent Bawah Reserve

Over the years, DUO has established business with a long list of distinguished names in the luxury hospitality industry worldwide. Through these collaborations, many of DUO’s designs have been destined to end up at some of the most astonishing settings of various resorts all over the world.

Tom Blanchere is one of our long-time clients from the realm of high-end island resorts, who also happens to be a passionate nature and marine conservationist. Our cooperation with Tom started years ago, when we provided customized versions of our designs for the five-star establishments he led in Seychelles, Maldives as well as other celebrated resorts around the world. Having worked closely with DUO on several occasions, Tom shared that he finds it simply amazing to see how good our products are and how much we actually care about presenting our clients with the best possible furniture and customer service.

Last year, we were delighted as we heard the news about the extraordinary Bawah Reserve, an otherworldly private-island retreat set on the regency of the Anambas archipelago, a hidden gem in the ocean, somewhere between Singapore and Borneo. This jaw-dropping sanctuary also happens to be led by Executive GM Tom Blanchere, and as you might have guessed, DUO was once again invited to participate in complementing this dazzling eco-luxury resort with our designs.

This remarkable resort is nestled on a pristine area of lush greenery and awe-inspiring shades of blue and turquoise which used to be an uninhabited marine conservation zone, consisting of six islands, three sheltered lagoons and thirteen immaculate beaches. This retreat has 35 villas which all feature a marvelous approach of modern architecture while utilizing eco-friendly building materials such as bamboo and recycled teak.

Bawah is located 3 hours away from Singapore; guests are picked up at their home or hotel in Singapore, dropped off at the ferry to Batam, and provided with a 75-minute private seaplane service from Batam’s Hang Nadim International Airport straight to the resort. Thus, you can imagine how you can truly rejuvenate in this hideout so far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, only shared with so many other bliss-seeking souls at a time.

DUO’s job was to provide designs which suit the entire concept and purpose of this resort in presenting a whole new level of private-island experience; to relax and luxuriate amidst the stunning vista and feel of this secluded archipelago. Bawah Reserve requested us to provide some of our best-selling designs, such as daybeds, sofas, chairs, benches, bar stools and ottomans, all made out of ethically sourced high-grade materials, such as first-rate all-weather wicker and Sunbrella’s excellent fabrics, all perfectly suitable for the indoor and outdoor settings of this island resort.

DUO’s designs are found at the resort’s exquisite deluxe beach suites. Our simple yet chic Capetown Double sofa accompanied by our round table with a wooden top as well as a pair of ottomans complete the living pavilion of this high-end back-to-nature accommodation harmoniously. The organic inspired colors and designs of our furniture complement the stunning architecture of the villas which enhances the breathtaking ocean view and marvelous elements of the natural surroundings.

Bawah Reserve’s overwater bungalows built in the crystal clear waters with a spectacular view overlooking the lagoon and outer islands simply invite you to live your dream tropical getaway. These wooden overwater houses feature a private veranda and an open-air sundeck which leads right to the captivating blue waters below, and the lush tropical foliage view on the other side. On this sundeck, you’ll find a pair of DUO’s most-loved plush Seychelles daybeds which are there for your ultimate contentment while lounging around, taking in what might be the most stunning sunset experience of your life.

Ever since this hideaway began welcoming its guests, we have started receiving regular orders from those who fell in love with our designs during their extraordinary private island experience. As it turned out, many of the resort’s guests made sure that they had our contact details before heading home from their exotic getaway, and later placed their orders for Bawah Reserve’s choices of DUO furniture to complement their own home. So far, the best-loved design orders among former visitors of Bawah Reserve is our exquisite Seychelles daybed.

Furthermore, the resort also presents a gorgeous restaurant, Treetops, set on a stylish sustainable bamboo structure surrounded by an astonishing view of the lagoon as well as rainforest. We had a wonderful time designing customized sofas for this particular venue within the resort. Our modular lounges with inviting satisfying cushions framed by our natural color of white wicker surround the striking dining area elegantly.

Our meticulously designed New Ibiza arm chairs are also found at the impeccable setting of this artistically designed restaurant which like the rest of the resort also combines modern architecture with the use of natural materials. And as you explore more furnished sides and corners of this striking resort, you will recognize more of DUO’s touches here and there.

Many believe that Bawah Reserve has succeeded to take Indonesia’s private-island resort experience to a whole new level. Well, for us it was certainly a great pleasure performing our role for this exceptional haven where breathtaking nature meets the amazing style and service of eco-luxury.

And now, we are simply holding our breath for the next sensational hideouts that might require a touch from DUO prior to its grand introduction to sun worshippers across the world.
