Buildings from Malaysia

Borneo Long House

Borneo Long House

read more

Typically, Borneo longhouses are up to 100 meters long and house many different families under a single roof. The houses can be extended as the families expand.

Longhouses are typically located close to fast-flowing rivers and thus built on stilts. An open veranda runs along the whole length of the longhouse, behind which the private living quarters of the individual families are located.

The Borneo Longhouse at Tropical Islands is built in the typical Orang Ulu style. The Orang Ulu are a tribe of Indian artists and one of the native peoples of Borneo. Their longhouses are traditionally decorated with carvings and paintings and their household objects adorned with pearls.

The Borneo Longhouse was built in partnership with the Sarawak Central Tourist Office and is based on a house in the historical village museum in Kuching, the capital of Sarawak in Malaysia.

Buildings from Bali

Balinese Temple Gate

Balinese Temple Gate

The impressive Bali Gate serves as the entrance to the Tropical Village. Four meters wide and nearly 14 meters high, it is the largest Balinese gate outside of Bali, the Hindu Island of the Gods. In Bali, such open gates signify access to holy sites, the "split" gate symbolizing a mount of the gods that has been torn asunder through its midpoint.

The Bali Pavilion

The Pavilion has a hexagonal ground plan and three pagoda roofs, giving it the same aesthetic proportions as a Balinese temple. The roofs are decked with palm leaves. The wood used in the construction is bangkirai and merbau, two extremely strong woods from Asia. On the ground floor, a valuable sandstone relief depicts scenes from the Ramayana, the epic tale of Prince Rama, his beautiful wife Sita and the Monkey King Hanuman. The Ramayana is a classic of world literature and contains the philosophical basis of Hinduism.

Polynesian Hut

Samoan fale

read more

Typical Polynesian straw huts are called fale. The ground plan is usually oval in shape, and large tree trunks support a leaf-covered roof. The islands sometimes experience strong winds, so, to prevent damage, the roof is shaped like a tortoise’s shell, giving the wind nothing to get hold of. The houses are usually open at the sides, even at night. The "walls" consist of plaited mats that are rolled up and only let down in case of rain or strong wind.

The Samoan fale at Tropical Islands is a sort of community centre for a number of villages. It is unusually large, each of the 28 beautifully carved wooden pillars standing for one of the family groups.

The Tropical Islands fale was constructed with the assistance of the Samoan Tourist Authority.

Architecture of Thailand

Thai House

Thai House

read more

The biggest and most elegant building in the Tropical Village is our traditional Thai House, built out of wood and bamboo.

Thai houses are perfectly adapted to the tropical climate. They are, for instance, built on tall stilts because of the frequent flooding.

The Thai House would be home to a large family. It consists of three smaller buildings: the sleeping quarters, the reception building, and a large house for eating. These three houses are built around a central atrium where there is usually a large, shade-providing tree.

The Tropical Islands Thai House was designed and built by Ladda Teijavnaija, a Thai architect who has also worked for the Thai Royal Family.
