CUCKMERE HOLIDAYS

The project is located in a steep valley among misty mountains of Munnar, in the western ghats region. The site has an area of 87cents. The major part remains steep & difficult for construction due to the loose clayey soil conditions. The valley overlooks a stream flowing as a Cuckmere with the background of misty mountains gives a perfect frame for a get away resort. The hotel is designed as a eco-resort hotel with all the bedrooms facing the valley and the stream, with a balcony which extends the bedroom to the scenic nature. The steepness of the site is incorporated in the design, by taking three levels into the slope and the retaining walls are utilized being the part of the underground water tank and fire reserve tank.
