The design of Sapphire Sands is based on a playful vitality brought out by natural shapes, inviting colors and creative structures. Designer Justin Fox was inspired to build on features of fun and security when designing this unique luxury resort. Ideal for kids and the whole family, Sapphire Sands makes use of rounded architecture to create an inviting environment that blends distinct shapes, vibrant colorations and natural features such as palm trees, grass and water.
Kids will love Sapphire Sands, where the surroundings really come to life at night, thanks to colorful light strips against the pool wall, along the boundaries of the floors, and within the unique structures themselves. This combination of colors, lights and tranquil designs help bring out that special sense of comfort and fun sure to make your visit a memorable experience.
The pool area at Sapphire Sands really emphasizes its beach-like appeal by highlighting several features of the ocean, a sandy beach and the colors of the water. The designer’s goal was to create an organic feel by limiting straight lines and edges, allowing smooth and natural formations to dominate the overall appearance of the pool area. The pool wall is made of smooth, hand-scraped texture that adds to the ambience of the surrounding architecture and is accented in the reflection of the light strips at nighttime.
The pool entry flooring is reminiscent of a sandy beach descending into the water, where it blends into the island as the water gets deeper, creating an authentic ocean feel. The island itself is home to several palm trees and smooth artificial grass, which together add an element of green space to the pool area and the resort as a whole. The border wall of the pool is designed in a varying mosaic wave of blue, which becomes covered in the overflowing pool water and lights up in the reflection of fireside colors — really coming to life at night.
