One of the facilities provided within Zora is Samasana Club House, with interior design inspired by Karesansui, a Japanese rock garden, or often called Zen Garden. Based on Japanese history, Karesansui gardens were created to serve as spaces for contemplation and zen meditation. The appeal of the Karesansui garden lies in its place as a sanctuary to separate yourself from the chatter and quietly engage in self-reflection. Which is then reflected in the interior design for Samasana Club House.

Carries the concept of Modern Japanese interior design, the Samasana Club House reflects four main Japanese elements of bamboo, stone, plants and wood. These elements are carefully implemented in the choice of materials throughout the club house to create a harmonious and balanced atmosphere. Another interpretation of Karesansui can be seen in the ceiling treatment on the main lobby. The wavy pattern inspired by the Gravel and sand in Karesansui that are raked into ripple designs to represent water, and again, as a symbol of harmony and balance.

The use of color and materials also plays an important role throughout the interior design. The stone material is chosen with a lighter color to present a clean yet elegant space. Where else the furniture area is mainly chosen in grey color to balance the light color from the wood treatment on the wall and ceiling.
Overall, the interior design of Samasana Club House presents a Modern Japanese style that focusing on balance and harmony while creating a healthy and comfortable environment for its users.
