VIDA was engaged by Tabacon to help re-vision the common areas of one of the best known natural hot springs in the region. The first phase, the renovated pool, core amenities and pool bar were planned, designed, and built in 5 months with help of Tabacon´s very capable landscape team with the feature palms supplied by Greengo Gardens. The color palette was inspired by the river that meanders through the property, making the pool feel like an extension of the natural environment. The landscape is a selection of native and adapted species that help to create a series of private and social spaces, as well as providing shade and scale. The pool has been very well received by guests which for us, is the ultimate test of success.
