W Retreat Koh Samui Reveals WOOBA®
Magnified by an Exclusive Fashion Show of the International Designer, Rubin Singer.
W Retreat Koh Samui recently revealed its iconic WOOBA® by hosting an exclusive evening like no other ever seen on Koh Samui. Recent styling improvements to inject W Hotels signature New York energy into Koh Samui covered everything from a stunning new “floating” DJ booth to graffiti walls by international street artist, Alec Monopoly and custom made lighting and furniture coordinated by Thailand design company P49 Deesign.
“We wanted to bring a distinct energy to the WOOBA® that capitalizes on its unique setting and views of the sea” said Carl Almeida, Partner at P49 Deesign.
To celebrate the relaunch of WOOBA®, W Retreat Koh Samui invited guests to an evening fusing What’s New/Next in fashion, music and design in true W Hotels style. With the sun setting over the Gulf of Thailand as an incredible backdrop, a floating 50 meter runway was created to showcase the latest designs from international designer, Rubin Singer. Most recently noted for having done Beyonce’s spectacular bodysuit for last month’s Super Bowl, Singer is known to have designed for stars ranging from Alicia Keys to Lucy Liu.
