Situated in the pedestrian hill town of Matheran near Mumbai, the resort is designed on a relatively steep slope covered by an existing vegetated grove of trees. It is a low-rise horizontal spread of guest rooms, suites and bungalow units, with supporting restaurant facilities, tucked under the existing green canopy on this difficult terrain. It also contains a swimming pool and is consciously landscaped to enable access and outdoor recreation within the spaces of this undulating site.
