We am not married yet. We are merely living in sin. So to speak, especially in India.

And starting today I am single too, lol. Madame returns to Deutschland today for a few weeks.

Stunning Indeed. A bit like a made-to-order Lake Como. Reminds me of the Palm Islands in Dubai.

A bit OT, but...

Arrey nahi girl, it's not romantic. I have a thing for benches. I just love them. I was expressing my appreciation of the one I was sitting on.

Nice pics Sam. Looks supercool.

Doesn't seem to be too expensive. I saw this on the net a while back...
Quote:
the promoters have introduced timber chalets, ranging from Rs 80 lakh for a single bedroom to Rs 1.3 crore for three bedrooms.
"The chalets are made of imported pine wood and even the single bedroom unit has 1,600 sq. ft. of built space in a 5,000 sq. ft. plot."
Seems pretty cheap at the price, for the facilities you get.

For those prices, you can get a 2 bhk rentable apartment in Hiranandani Powai (the real mccoy)

Additionally for those prices you can get 2 bhk in Colaba, South Bombay, no pine used, no jhanjhat of catching fire.

Awesome photos Sam, great narration.

My wedding present is going to be a bench. !

Yes, but you're comparing a 2BHK apartment -- probably sub 1000 sft -- to a standalone bungalow or house, with 60% more area. Add to that, the (artificial?) nature, the trees, the walkways, the lakes, the birds, all that jazz. It's a great retirement home.

Well regardless of the argument here, I am convinced that this is either old, or bad information. The chalets are not for sale.

It is used as a hotel (complete with room service and housekeeping) to host people whose homes are incomplete. After their homes are complete, the usage will be similar.

Also please do realise that this place is under no municipal jurisdiction, has private security patrols instead of police and generates its own electricity and creates its own water supply. The rate of the land does not follow any preset norms simply because there is no comparison.

And Akshay, the trees and birds are both quite real. Aamby valley has a Guiness record for the most number of trees planted etc.

Having invested so much in their project, maybe Aamby Valley could have also thought of a section with Artificial Snow.
