    The Challenges


    The town is not very large, and most of its area is under the administration of the Pachmarhi Cantonment Board, serving the Indian Army. Availability of material was a very big task so all the materials were procured and transported from nearby places (area within 200 km range).


    Getting skilled labor was also a tedious task. Maximum labors and workers team was sent from Bhopal.


    Designs Inspiration for This Project


    Pachmarhi being a tourist place, greenery all around. The resort has to have the best view from all sides. Our main focus was to provide all the luxury amenities with the best view possible.


    USP of The Project


    Pachmarhi being a hill station requires a design that is close to nature adapting its shapes and forms. So we designed the resort with slope roof. Resort area had century old trees in surroundings which are retained and merges beautifully with our landscaping. Material selection was done keeping the local climate and nature in mind.
