Our Story

Underwood Co., Ltd. stands out as a prominent design and production hub in the luxury resort industry, collaborating with major hotel chains and hospitality projects across South East Asia and globally.

HISTORY

Founder Geoffry John Underwood gained recognition through the human factor series at the 1988 World Expo in Brisbane. This success led to international expo opportunities, representing the Australian Government in South Korea, Spain and Italy. 

Establishing a production facility in Bangkok in 1993, Underwood ventured into designing facades and artworks for commercial projects in the booming shopping center and theme park industry in Bangkok and South East Asia. By the early 2000s, the company transitioned into the resort industry, relocating the factory to Phuket and forming a lasting partnership with resort designer Bill Bensley. Collaborative projects include Four Seasons Tented Camp, Hotel de la Paix, Siem Reap, and more.

SHIFT TO HOSPITALITY

Working on challenging locations like One and Only Reethi Rah, Maldives, and Four Seasons Tented Camp, Chiang Mai, inspired Underwood to develop a prefab system for modular resort design, targeting the luxury market. Over the past five years, this shift has led Underwood to initiate its own projects, such as supplying 30 modular Villa Structures for Tree-House Villas Koh Yao's 2018 opening.

COMMITED TO QUALITY

These projects reflect the same style and quality that made Underwood's past endeavors successful, drawing from decades of experience in Asia's hospitality market. The Underwood team takes pride in crafting interiors and products that are uniquely designed, aiming to excite and delight inhabitants. As both designers and manufacturers, Underwood leverages its understanding of production methods and material qualities to ensure a seamless user experience, creating functional yet artistic pieces.
