We were officially on trip for a team building activity outside the big city. Three big buses were hired for the 3-hour land trip. Activities were successfully done, and everyone happy with the camaraderie, fun and food. It was a good respite from the daily grind in the workplace inside the big city. But we are at the height of our dry season, temperatures are high coupled with high humidity. I purposely did not include here the photos of the buildings and landscape, except for a few structures.
The 14-hectare resort is an expanse of undulating topography, with separate structures for the hotel buildings, and an organic farm catering to the food requirements of guests. There are also some animal pets and small poultry house where they tend chickens. I love the rule that smoking is not allowed inside the property upon entering the gate. The surroundings are well maintained with healthy-looking plants despite the heat.

gazebo near the main area where guests can sit and chat, read a book or look at the surroundings
Some benches are functionally located around the area but heat didn't allow anybody to linger here.
Benches like this abound in the area. When sightseers and bikers get tired, they can rest on available benches on the grounds.
The area was obviously a former orchard with tall coconut trees, mangoes, jackfruit and other fruit trees. Additional trees, shrubs and ornamental were planted for aesthetic purposes.
