As Gaya Travel team entered Terrapuri, we felt we were being magically transported back to the times of Langkasuka, an ancient Malay kingdom based in Pattani (now part of Thailand) that stretched down to Terengganu at the south and Kedah on the west. The resort sports colours that are raw, honest, earthen and natural, which invoke guests’ reverence towards the greatness of nature, upon which the traditional Malay life hinges upon. We also learned that traditional Malay civilisation was found on the basis of respecting nature and working with it, thus the Malay architectural principles and design sensibilities always take into account natural elements such as wind, water and earth.
