Amava, from the Xhosa word for “experience”, will be a place where the holidaymaker can come for amazing holiday experiences, whilst experiencing a concept designed from the ground up to deliver the triple bottom-line focus of “People, Planet and Prosperity.
Wave & Water Park
The water park offering both an indoor and outdoor guest experience, a wide range of other sporting and leisure activities, multiple food and beverage outlets and an artificial lake for water sports and sailing. In addition, an 18‐hole links golf course is planned on the site close to the beach.
Accommodation will be in 730 premium quality, fully equipped villas each with either a lake or sea view. Each villa will be surrounded by indigenous flora re-planted as part of the re-landscaping of the land and close to all the Resort’s amenities. Cars will not be permitted in the Resort area giving the guest a safe and clean-air atmosphere to enjoy the activities and their accommodation.
The villa aesthetic is one which is contemporary yet still bears strong reference to local and traditional building techniques. The appearance of the villa should reinforce the character of the resort and its location. It should also carry a sense o timelessness and tranquillity, making use of contemporary technology and construction techniques.
The villas have a strong rationality, simplicity and elegance in the overall form. These are qualities which are not associated with any particular “style” but are timeless and fundamental qualities. The finishes and detailing however will give particularity and character to the units, borrowing ideas from local traditions and applying them in an elegant and contemporary manner.
