“Retirement communities are not real estate projects, they are service oriented experiences”
Managing Director, Bahri Estates
Nestled away from the hustle and bustle of city life, in serene and lush surroundings amidst nature, Anandam redefines retirement. We learn more about this path breaking project in conversation with Hemant Bahri, MD, Bahri Estates.
What was the thought process behind masterminding such a unique concept?
We have been in the business for over two decades. The idea of Anandam was conceived as an exclusive concept to provide unmatched living complete with five star services for seniors. Our brand of self contained townships offers seniors serene villa plots in the fringes of the city where residents can experience inspired living.
What sort of experience do you provide seniors to ensure they get the luxury and leisure they seek?
Primarily our properties are located in easily accessible locations that are situated in the lap of nature. Surrounded by hills and natural water bodies, seniors can live a life amidst serenity and tranquility sans pollution. Space is given utmost priority. For instance, out of the 120 acres in our Kodaikannal property, only 27% is saleable. The rest of the land has been developed into areas to cater to the entertainment, leisure and sporting needs of residents.
How does Anandam pave the way for active living?
Senior citizens of today are bubbling with energy and in no mood to slow down. Our community has beautifully landscaped gardens, parks and jogging tracks in addition to superior entertainment and sports facilities at the clubhouse for seniors. The club house that extends across over 40,000sq.ft. offers ample opportunity for those looking for recreation. We also arrange for social activities in the vicinity to keep residents engaged fruitfully.
Why should someone choose villa plots over an apartment for retirement living?
A global real estate services firm has stated that high-rise buildings are not suitable for senior living as they may lead to social disconnection and result in low internal mobility and safety. This is one of the key advantages of living at Anandam. We have on board a professional company which can construct villas exclusively for seniors with all amenities required for their safety and well being. Seniors can make use of this facility once the plot is registered in their name.
What are the other professionally managed services offered at Anandam?
We understand the needs of seniors by having a deep understanding of their lifestyle, their habits and their preferences. Our fully operational property at Kodaikanal has quality services and quality maintenance provided by trained professionals with utmost care. For geriatrics the most important care required is in terms of health. We provide the best medical services by partnering pan India with Apollo Tele Health Services.
Are today’s seniors open to the concept of retirement communities or do they still have apprehensions?
95% of our buyers are actual users. We are completely transparent with our clients and prospective buyers. They are free to visit and stay in our community in foothills of Kodaikanal, interact with existing residents, experience the five-star facilities, before making a decision to buy a villa plot within the community.
Anandam is known to be the world’s most awarded retirement project, which is the accomplishment that you are most proud of?
Our residents are our biggest brand ambassadors. The smiles, blessings and heartfelt testimonials we receive from them are the biggest confidence boost for us and that gives us the strength to move further ahead.
