The tree of the main lounge is constructed with 800 meters of brass foliage encompassing the bar, a sunken lounge and a performance space under it. A velvet red fluting of fabric ensures a warm backdrop as well as perfect acoustics for live performances.
The Eau Bar main space is now flanked by two spatial additional, the first a Private Lounge is the perfect antechamber to more intimate groups and the second, a terrace bar and lounge overlooking the Arabian Sea.
Passing through a door concealed within the fabric fluting, we reach the Private Lounge. A custom designed chandelier extends the language of the Main Lounge into this discreet space while a fluted glass partition animates an impression of lights & movements in the Main Lounge beyond without compromising privacy.
The Terrace Lounge itself divided into two levels to magnify the idea of a landscaped setting.
The first level holds the Outdoor Bar, against the magnificent backdrop of the Arabian sea sandwiched between lush palm trees & a young Frangipani trees.
Set in alcoves within a topiary of lush green planting are the sunken black granite seating overlooking the water.
The Eau bar is defined by a palate of fabric and metal, red and gold the and by landscapes both natural and articulated.
