Instead of chopping down trees and building the resort, the cottages were designed to grow around the existing mango trees, and integrate them in the built environment. This resort has a unique green quotient; the design direction was the ecologically sensitive notion to “embrace the nature gently”. Fort like circular shaped cottages inspired by a combination of local nomadic community houses and the boldness of lion-the king of forest.
