As a general rule, there are two ways to construct staff buildings in resorts. The first and the mostly followed rule is just to construct a shed like structure which can house any form of living thing, be it cattle or human beings. The structure is designed with only one consideration in the mind, which is lessening the cost of the building and nothing else. The second way is to understand staff as an investment and design accommodation buildings accordingly. The second way is enthusiastically being taken up by new resorts by top brands such as Six senses Laamu which will be opening their first affordable resort for down market come next on-season which will start about October 2010. Resort islands being severely limited in land area, needs to come up with innovative approaches to tackle the issue of accommodation and one such innovative idea is to construct more floors per building than just constructing a one storied shed. With proper landscaping a 2 or 3 floor building can be concealed so as not to impose on the scenery of the island.
