Beachfront Party Zones

This includes creating multiple steps / terraces on the river bund to create multiple zones for lounging allowing multiple groups to enjoy the place simultaneously.

The last level near the river will have a massive sand court for Beach Volleyball, frisbee and other outdoor sports.

And a party zone capable of hosting almost 500 people, literally touching the water!

Reinforcement & Landscaping

We are reinforcing each terrace with stone pitching to avoid soil erosion during rains and this involves over 200 TRUCK LOADS of stones and over 20 people working non-stop for 2 months!

Landscaping and beautification of the entire space will be completed by July / August or so with multiple flowering varieties.

Special focus is on reinforcing the top soil through plants like Bougainvillea, Aloe-Vera, etc. – which are hardy plants with almost zero maintenance and also hold the soil very firmly with their dense roots.

Overlooking 10,000 acres of Forest Land & Hills
