New Concept Japanese Garden for the Marriott Courtyard, North Pattaya

The new Marriott Courtyard Hotel, Pattaya, recently selected Thai Garden Design to plan and install this new concept Japanese Garden, situated within a central courtyard of the hotel.

The new garden offers visual relief for all guests ..

Designed by lead designer, Sutiya Shingleton, the new garden is positioned as a focus point and center piece, and is view able from all interior facing rooms. Traditionally, the Japanese garden is seen as an integral part of Japanese culture, so the view of the design team was to aid and help guests achieve a feeling of peace and harmony when they look out into this wonderful vibrant courtyard.

The landscape was designed and implementedWithin the design the team wanted to incorporate key Japanese garden themes, the use of stone, and natural materials, like hardwood timber, pebble stones and gravel, with an eye-catching plant selection.

Due to the general lack of space, Thai Garden Design decided to approach the design and installation with a minimalist perspective, making use of Japanese garden features within the confined space.

With the long term view in mind, the grass chosen was a high quality artificial turf, laid on top of 20 mm drainage cell, to ensure good drainage and longevity.

Combination or wood, stone and plants make a real statement to this area

The zig-zag hardwood bridge, at the center of the concept Japanese garden, comes from traditional Japanese garden design, ensuring that the person walking, has the opportunity to stop and contemplate the beautiful garden surroundings.
