The planning and designing of Sairu has been a challenging task. The location is hilly with no chunk of plane land. There was the concern that construction could damage the pristine beauty of Nature unless it blended with the topography keeping the contours intact. Sairu was constructed, to the delight of the partners with utmost sensitivity, the only exception being the driveway which had to be scrapped and curved out of the hill. Water had to be sourced from a spring almost 1200 feet below the Resort Site which proved to be a colossal task. To build Sairu, sourcing of workers and materials for construction proved to be a challenge as none of these were locally available. Except for some local stones and bamboos everything else had to be sourced from the Capital City of Dhaka which was not only costly but as well a time consuming affair.
