How do you ensure that a bunch of hard-working professionals who spend nearly 10-12 hours every day at work, fight and argue over smallest of details, fight it out over smokes and coffees and send thousands of emails to each other to spend 3-4 days together and manage to have the greatest time, looking forward to their next adventure. So what is that place be where formals and ties give way to caps and t-shirts and coffee mugs turn to beer pitchers as foes also turn into friends. Excel sheets are replaced by golf sticks and laptops are forgotten in the sails of the beautiful boats at the harbour.
Sutera Harbour Resort is undoubtedly the place where all this can be possible. This high-end resort facing the waterfront boasts of 2 hotels is hardly 10 minutes away from the airport and the main city.
