RESORTS AND PLACEMAKING


A getaway to a resort is an ideal vacation for travellers seeking to destress from their urban hectic lifestyle, especially one that is set in a serene landscape.

Not only do these resorts offer a respite for weary tourists, they attempt to fit into their localities and implement environmentally friendly initiatives that seek to conserve, respect and respond to the fragile sites. They communicate the idea of eco-tourism by offering recreational activities that are in line with the site’s parameters, and offer community involvement in the construction and maintenance.

In this story, we feature two resorts that are built unobtrusively 
into ecologically sensitive premises, and look at how they aim to be restorative developments in their respective ways.
