The designer of naked Stables Private Reserve is Delphine Yip, partner at Ben Wood Studio Shanghai. Delphine is the master planner and chief architect for the project. She led an international team of talented designers and engineers, pioneers in sustainable design and green building technology, to create this special place.

The design aesthetics of the resort fuse African and Asian elements and bring the magic of African hospitality and intimacy with nature to an Asian setting.

All buildings are designed to minimize the environmental impact and fit in with the natural surroundings.

Innovative construction technology such as prefabricated SIP (structural insulated panels) has been used in the construction of the Tree Top Villas.

The Earth Huts and clubhouse are built with modern rammed earth walls using compressed mud from the local area, resulting in an environmentally friendly structure and striking coloured striations and design.


In addition to cutting edge technology, we also employed traditional construction techniques such as stonemasonry walls, bamboo and recycled timber framed structures, and traditional mud wall construction.

The result is an eclectic and unique mix of buildings in harmony with the natural environment
