Sussanne who promises whoever buys one of the properties will feel like the king of goa admits she’s already booked one for herself.

“the fall in the indian rupee vis a vis the dollar has boosted a lot of nris to invest in india today which encourages developers like us to invest in such luxury projects.”
The exclusive luxury project which is due to get off the ground in april is expected to be completed by may 2016. while reports have it that each villa will set you back by at least rs100 million (dh5.9 million) the developers are wary about giving out any official figures as of now since they say each unit will be custom-built and therefore come with its own unique price tag.
