Coco Shamb­hala, Sind­hudurg

India Today - - COVER STORY - by Aditi Pai Visit: www.co­coshamb­hala.com

With plush vil­las that of­fer panoramic 180 de­gree sea views, mas­sive in­fin­ity pools with steep drops that mimic the Juras­sic-like Sind­hudurg coast­line, be­spoke crock­ery and an el­e­gant din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, lux­ury re­sort Coco Shamb­hala is high on de­sign and style. The dis­tinc­tive fea­ture of the lo­cal ver­nac­u­lar is the four-way pitched Man­ga­lore tiled roof. The vil­las are built man­u­ally by artists from across the coun­try with­out a crane, JCB or any me­chan­i­cal de­vice. The steel frames are cre­ated with­out a sin­gle weld with 3688 holes drilled in phys­i­cally, making the struc­ture easy to dis­man­tle with­out leav­ing any scars on the land. The fur­ni­ture fits in seam­lessly with the lo­cal de­sign—48 car­pen­ters worked with re­claimed In­dian iron wood and co­conut over nine months.
