The influence of 13th century Vijayanagara palace architecture along with 18th century Mediterranean style are evident in the design. A seamless meld of Portuguese colonial and Indian culture.

The real inspiration behind the design are the peace and serenity and intricate design of Indian temples. Guest room terraces and balconies float out over the lagoons inspiring moments of contemplation.
