“The construction work of Swosti Chilika Resort has commenced and we plan to unveil it by October next years. The property will comprise two blocks, one would be the hotel block with 36 luxury rooms and the resort block will have 36 villas including a President villa, each with a pool. The mesmerizing location- Chilika Lake is an eco-wonder that attracts migratory birds from Siberian countries. Starting November to February end, millions of migratory birds flock down to the phenomenal lake, thus creating a mesmerizing site for the tourists. We aim to capitalize on the same”.
