  • “I am in the hospitality business, with our flagship property in one of the most beautiful locations at The Andamans. We are blessed with crystal clear waters, endless sands and unspoiled beaches that lure luxury travelers from different parts of the world. At Bigtree Hospitality, we are committed to showcasing this natural beauty by using the right materials, so the overall organic, earthy, green look and feel is kept intact. We want to provide our guests an opportunity to commune with nature, and feel connected without compromising on luxury, so they feel pampered.

    While building a resort in Chidiya Tapu, we planned on a bamboo-themed restaurant by using bamboo rafters. We were particular that the property has an intimate, natural aesthetic inspired by tropical Balinese architecture. This is why we chose Palmex, for its earthy, vernacular look. Palmex mimics the woven appeal of natural thatch but eliminates all the pain points of using palm or coconut leaves. We were a little concerned if Palmex would hold up well during the heavy monsoons, in the Andamans. But we are happy to report that not a single drop of water has gotten through the roof, since installation, even with heavy rainfall.

    I would recommend Palmex as a vendor to other hospitality businesses. Procurement of the material and installation, even to a remote location like Chidiya Tapu was a breeze. If you want to recreate the magical appeal of natural thatched roofs, with a high-quality, durable artificial eco-friendly material and want professional, courteous, timely service – don’t look beyond Palmex!” Sumer Verma, Managing Director, Bigtree Hospitality”

  • “Palmex leaves give a natural look to the treehouse, with its original colour and design. Our guests look forward to a stay in a treehouse with modern amenities, but with the charm of a thatched roof. ” Sachin K Jose, General Manager, Greenberg Resorts

  • “The product looked better than I expected… People who live around are dropping in just to see the roof! The Palmex team oversaw the installation with a lot of commitment and this was very impressive.” Yashwant Bhelke, Architect
