A thirty minute scenic drive away from Visakhapatnam lies the much needed break you need from the city.
The Setting Tucked away on top of a hill, the scenic drive to Bay Park resort in Visakhapatnam is awe-inspiring by itself, a stellar promise for what’s to come. As you reach the top, amidst lush vegetation is an eco-friendly, wellness-focused retreat that seems to be a whole world unto itself. Spread across 28 acres of land, the minimalist, exposed, cement walls and mud tile roof only enhance the extravagance of the retreat that is designed by an Indonesian architect. As you step into a foyer supported by huge pillars, the soft gurgle of water lures you in. Step in further and you’re greeted by an understated water body adorned with a Buddha sculpture and filled with colourful Koi fish. If you do manage to get past the beauty of the courtyard dotted with stone and wood structures imported from around the world and go past the glass doors on the other side, the pièce de résistance awaits. An infinity pool overlooks the Bay of Bengal and the ombré effect the pool, sea and sky create against each other is a sight to see. It almost overpowers the stunning view of the city the elevation offers; Bay Park wellness resort showcases a whole new vista of Vizag.
