Every business family worth its logo, will have its signature villas and here is one more to add to the list. We have learnt, that far away in sunny Goa's Cocoa Beach, a villa is shaping up under the supervision of eminent architect Gerard Da Cunha.
Overlooking the ocean, this two-and-half acre property perched on a cliff belongs to the Ruias of the Essar Group. The Ruias bought over an old bungalow, had it stripped down and redesigned. The result is a non-ostentatious exterior with high-end interiors featuring accessories imported from the world over. In fact, a high-tech gel-based mattress, which comes with a price tag of Rs. 85 lakh is just one such talking point of the Ruia holiday home.
The project is far from complete, but we hear the dynamic Prashant Ruia is keen to have it ready as soon as possible. We hope with the architects and the interior designers, the Ruias have consulted some vastu specialists as well, or else this could be another stunning house waiting forever for its owners
