PRESS RELEASE FOR UNWIND- INVENT YOUR VERSION OF UNWIND!
To ‘unwind’ literally means to relax, to loosen up, to rejuvenate. This magical word can mean so many different things to different people. For some it may mean being in nature, the mountains, the sea, and the greenery. For others it can be a scrumptious meal, a few glasses of wine, live music to groove to and the company of their close comrades. Some may prefer to unwind with refreshing cocktails, being outdoors, watching the sunset or dancing to some energetic music. And then there are the underground music aficionados, who need to release all that pent-up energy unwinding on the dance floor, echoing the name of their favorite artists and letting the music take complete control.
“Since we decided to call our property ‘Unwind’, we wanted to let people explore and indulge in how they would like to Unwind.
We at Unwind, place a lot of emphasis on the ‘vibe’ of a place and hope that those who visit us would love to come back often, simply because they loved the experience here’’ say directors Chetan Naik, Sanjay Mulay and Rana Megh.
