Surya Vilas, Kasauli
Area – 10 acres
Cost – 5 crores
Construction year – 2006-ongoing
This 10 acres land in the hills of Kasauli is next to a reserved Pine forest, with beautiful views around. Master planning for a 70 Key, resort was done to give long distant views from all the rooms. Double storey structures designed by architectural firm DAAT INDIA are very pleasing in proportions. The approach to all the units is by a golf cart path, which goes along the contours.
Interesting terraces are created at various levels to bridge the height between the parking level and the porch level.
The Swimming pool is designed as an infinity pool at the highest level with breathless view, of the valley below & the Pines on the side. Another Jacuzzi area is planned next to the deluxe cottages along with the barbeque area, for outdoor dining.
The concept is to merge with the surroundings, using local flora and with minimum alteration to the topography.
