Bill Bensley

Since 1984, Bill Bensley has been designing resorts throughout Asia and the world. Harvard educated under Moshe Safdie, Bensley’s early career was under the masterful eye of Lek Bunnag, one of Thailand’s true national treasures. He worked in Hong Kong and Singapore, and in 1989 opened shop in Bangkok. By 1990 he met his long term guiding light Jirachai, and started BENSLEY’s Bali branch. After almost 25 years, BENSLEY has designed more than 200 resorts and hotels in more than 30 countries, and slowly grown to 150 talented architects, interior designers, landscape architects, and fine artists and has never once experience slow times. Despite their success, he still believes that BENSLEY’s best work might appear when he grows up!
