Amidst the tranquil embrace of Mahabaleshwar’s lush hills, Arpee Group has achieved a remarkable feat – the construction of Le Meridian Resort & Spa, an architectural symphony that seamlessly blends with nature. Nestled in the heart of this hill station, our team envisioned a resort where nature itself became an integral part of the design.

The resort stands as a testament to our commitment to both innovation and environmental harmony. We’ve embraced the natural landscape, allowing the trees to be an integral part of the civil work. From the meandering pathways that wind through the property to the shapes of villas that mimic the contours of the land, every aspect of Le Meridian Resort & Spa speaks of pure nature and civil marvel.

Arpee Group is not just in the business of constructing buildings; we are in the pursuit of creating experiences that resonate with the essence of the environment. Le Meridian Resort & Spa stands as a living testament to our philosophy of blending nature, innovation, and impeccable craftsmanship to craft truly exceptional spaces.

Design in Details

In design, we bring characteristics of the natural world into built spaces, such as water, greenery, and natural light, or elements like wood and stone. Encouraging the use of natural systems and processes in design allows for exposure to nature, and in turn, these design approaches improve health and wellbeing. There are a number of possible benefits, including reduced heart rate variability and pulse rates, decreased blood pressure, and increased activity in our nervous systems, to name a few.

Over time, our connections to the natural world diverged in parallel with technological developments. Advances in the 19th and 20th centuries fundamentally changed how people interact with nature. Sheltered from the elements, we spent more and more time indoors. Today, the majority of people spend almost 80-90% of their time indoors, moving between their homes and workplaces. As interior designers embrace biophilia.

Incredible Result

Establishing multi-sensory experiences, we can design interiors that resonate across ages and demographics. These rooms and spaces connects us to nature as a proven way to inspire us, boost our productivity, and create greater well-being. Beyond these benefits, by reducing stress and enhancing creativity, we can also expedite healing. In our increasingly urbanized cities, biophilia advocates a more humanistic approach to design. The result is biophilic interiors that celebrate how we live, work and learn with nature. The term translates to ‘the love of living things’ in ancient Greek (philia = the love of / inclination towards), and was used by German-born American psychoanalyst Erich Fromm in The Anatomy of Human Destru ctiveness (1973).
