"Gandhar" The 3rd note in the melodious garland of Indian swaras, has sky as its element. Sky connotes space, calm and serenity. Our aim in the proposed project in the village Thal off Alibag, is to allow the vastness of the sky to seep into the lives of our guests. Allow our guests to imbibe the serenity of the space and go back to their daily routine with a calm and content being.
The stay is a quaint bamboo cottage. Bamboo has a great significance. Its long life makes it a Chinese symbol of longevity, while in India it is a symbol of friendship.
