10th October 2022

Angsana Ihurur is one of the most picturesque islands you will ever see and it is one of the current projects in the works here at Fiber Thatch. Angsana Ihurur faced a challenge that many resort owners have come to dread, re-thatching…

However, here at Fiber Thatch we offer Synthetic Thatch Tiles in a variety of styles that look exactly like the reel thing, if not better!



See for yourself!

Our product comes in a variety of different colours that will not fade or decay. We believe so much in our product that we even give a 20-year manufacturing warranty.

COMO Cocoa Island is one of the more recent projects that we are proud to showcase here today! This small luxurious resort was reopened on the 9th of January 2020 following a short seven-month refurbishment. Fiber Thatch has never shied away from a short or constrained time frame. We understand time is money and so our product is not only quick to install but easy and hassle-free.

COMO Cocoa Island has 33-overwater villas inspired by local Dhoni boats that were refurbished in our Fiber Palm Ocean Synthetic Thatch Tiles. A beautiful finish that complements the design better than that of the natural palm used before.



The refurbishments of this resort did not stop there, a few new structures have also been added such as the open-sided Pilates and yoga studio, and a state-of-the-art new gym. The interior finishes were also updated to match that of the breath-taking exterior, our Fiber Palm Ocean Ceiling Matts is a great add-on to any interior. The rest of the resort was also completed in the iconic palm leaf-like finish which really adds to the overall tropical feel that you can expect to experience at a destination such as this. The overall look and feel of our products are not the only benefit it offers. Our Synthetic Thatch Tiles, regardless of finish, all come with the below-listed advantages:

  • 20 Years Manufacturer’s Warranty.
  • Life Expectancy 50 Years Plus!

A Luxurious Custom House On The Serengeti Plains

3de September 2020

Offering a refined yet luxuriously impression, this contemporary luxury African home on the plains of the Serengeti was designed to be an exclusive aged retreat.

The Swiss native couple, Pascal and Loren Sharapan were looking for something different when they decided to build this magnificent home in the Masai Mara in Kenya. Being influenced by ritual and culture like those of the Maasai tribe, they decided on something traditional that would blend in with the surrounding beauty of the Serengeti.

They built the house using local labour, resources and inspiration, measuring a 1000m², this house is truly something to behold. But they where soon faced with a problem, the roof! How where they going to finish this magnificent structure off with something that will add to the surrounding influences that they aspired to achieve, as well as having something that will be safe from fires and the natural decay from the hot environment surrounding the Serengeti?

They soon found us!

We where able to offer them not only peace of mind with the amazing characteristics our synthetic thatch has to offer but also being able to cater to the more custom look they wanted to achieve. Our synthetic thatch is not susceptible to sun damage and doesn’t fade in colour. It is also fire retarded and will not rot or decay, it is literally maintenance free. A perfect answer for a house in such a remote tropical location. We also created a unique custom colour synthetic thatch for this project, something that looks aged and lived in and that will go well with the rest of the environment.

Our synthetic thatch is so easy to install that after a quick demonstration our satisfied customers where able to use local labour to finish the job. The end result is a flawless home perfectly settled in with the surroundings of the vast Serengeti plains.

Fiber Palm Synthetic Thatch has done it again! This modern tropical gem is one with the palm trees and surrounding ambiance you would come to expect from a luxury’s destination like Fiji. The credit to this excellent execution comes from the use of the Fiber Palm Synthetic Thatch product. This synthetic thatch product was developed to cater to the needs of tropical destinations as well as to help battle some of the challenges these tropical regions face. Fiber Thatch succeeded in this and House Rosen is a great example of why!

This world-class home balances so well with the surroundings of its tropical destination but, in the same sense radiates luxury of a 5-star resort. Striving to find the perfect product that matches the natural Tahitian Palm Thatch the house owner found the perfect match after discarding many poor imitation thatch products. Fiber Thatch’s Synthetic Palm Thatch achieves this by its 100% natural look and its superior quality and durability. At House Rosen, looks are not the only factor!

Any beautiful house in this tropical, humid destination will face a range of challenges. Luckily, Fiber Palm is not only aesthetically pleasing but will offer any owner a sound peace of mind.
