The master plan of Anantara Mui Ne Resort & Spa 

Building Envelope

Windows on northwest facades are 10 mm thick glass coated with a reflective film on the outside.


White painted walls allow for a high solar reflection capacity. It helps to reduce the thermal inertia of the building.
The louver system is made from timber which is not only for decoration purposes but also helps to prevent from solar radiation directly into the building.

A large balcony on the second floor provides shading for the resort entrance

Some other shading structures help reducing direct solar radiation into the building

Some other shading structures

Many trees are also providing further shading for the buildings.

Aventage over Thermal Transfer Value (OTTV) of the walls is calculated at 40.85 W/m2, a reduction of 32% compared to the 2013 EEBC requirement (of 60W/m2).
The main building roof of has six layers made up of (from outside to inside):
+ Tiles
+ Concrete slab (the first concrete slab layer)
+ A ventilated technical void with air venting louvers
+ Concrete slab (the second concrete slab layer)
+Ceiling void (50cm)
+ Gypsum Ceiling
Over Thermal Transfer Value (OTTV) of the roof is at 15.42 W/m2, a reduction of 38% compared to the EEBC requirement (of 25W/m2).


Usage of local materials such as stone, gravel, straw, bamboo, ceramics…etc

Natural Ventilation and Daylighting

2. Control of lighting
Occupation sensors are installed in toilets to avoid unnecessary energy consumption.
A total of 13 public lighting boards consisting of three timers each are to avoid unnecessary energy consumption in public areas.
