The article reports that architect Bill Bensley and his Bangkok, Thailand studio have moved into designing the buildings as well as the landscaping, in a March 2007 deal to design a palace for Malaysia's king. It was noted that hotel chains chasing the Asian boom invariably fall under his spell, and that is allowed him to redefine resorts from Indonesia to Thailand. His most elaborate project is the Four Seasons Tented Camp in the Golden Triangle in Thailand.
