While one conventionally associates construction projects with the quality of brick and mortar, the DNA of every Highland Construction project promoted by the unassuming, but visionary entrepreneur Devadas Y. Naik, is the inherent sense of security and warm comfort, one typically associates with a home.

This is exactly why, for nearly a quarter of a century, the signature of every Devadas Y. Naik project, has been solid, durable, secure construction built in perfect harmony with the nature and natural landscapes in the immediate vicinity. The latter is a testament to Devadas Y. Naik’s firm belief in the philosophy of passive development. And the former exemplifies his commitment to deliver a lasting product, which guarantees his clients, peace of mind.

On the heels of Devadas Y. Naik’s immense expertise and credible success over the years, comes this latest consummate offering ‘Highland Heritage’, an exclusive home stay, which comes embellished with a distinct Goan Portuguese experience.

Conceived with care and planned systematically over time ‘Highland Heritage’ is Devadas Y. Naik’s fitting tribute to fine living in complete sync with nature.

Highland Heritage is slated to be launched on Independence Day, 15th August 2015.  The launch event will be a celebration of Indian culture including art, music, fashion and cuisine.

Chahnaz Gayraud has been appointed as the Home Manager of Highland Heritage leading an all-ladies team.
