The Seedpod. The Seedpod has been developed as a low-impact, sustainable hospitality model to accommodate the rise of experiential travel, eco-tourism, wellness retreats and alternative lodging trends. The idea is that sleeping in the pod is a transformative experience in its own right – a chance to spend a night in a human nest where you can see the movement of the wildlife around you and hear the sounds of the forest.

Sustainability has been an intrinsic part of the Nomadic Resorts DNA since launching the company in 2011. In the next series of posts we will focus on various types of sustainable design we have worked on over the years (before introducing some exciting new projects). To kick off the process, we would like to address forest bathing, wildlife tourism and biophilic design. Fourteen years ago Olav Bruin (as architect at 24H) and Louis Thompson (as Project Manager at Six Senses) first collaborated on the treetop dining pod at Soneva Kiri – the project was commissioned by the visionary founder of the Soneva and Six Senses hotel groups Sonu Shivdasani and provided us with a unique opportunity to design a human nest that allowed the Soneva guests to dine in the canopy of the Thai rainforest.
In retrospect, entrusting such a task to a young inexperienced team illustrates the owners pioneering spirit….we like to believe the gamble paid off - the pod has been operational for over twelve years, it has been featured in dozens of publications, TV features and blogs, but more importantly it has provided a unique setting for proposals, birthdays, wedding anniversaries and gatherings of all sorts for guests. We hope it has bought these people joy and they have fond memories of those moments perched in the treetop waiting for the waiter to slide in with their food.
