Karpaha Sands

5-Star Tented Boutique Hotel

Location: Kalkudah, East Coast, Sri Lanka
Completed in: 2017

Foster & Reed completed the mechanical, electrical & plumbing installations of this pool, which is directly located on a wide, sandy beach – hence a lot of sand gets constantly blown into the water, a big challenge for construction and the water filtration system. This location also made it impossible to use heavy machinery – hence most of the work had to be done with manual labour. However, the biggest challenge was to satisfy the very demanding French designer client, which put high pressure on F&R to deliver.
