    Unhappy kept in line

    1) Our swimming pool is cleaned daily and is kept in line with all safety regulation.Our swimming pool is cleaned daily and is kept in line with all safety regulation.

    Should I use inline here or in line.

    2) Our home is set in the verdant countryside of Kottakkal, Kerala, which has always been, and continues to be one of the most preferred destination for Ayurvedic Treatments across the Globe.

    Should I use continue or continues? destination or destinations?

    3)For your convenience, a private gym, multi cuisine restaurant, cafeteria, swimming pool, and pickup and drop-off facility are also provided.

    Should I use a pickup and drop-off?


    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Should I use "inline" here or "in line"?
    "In line" is correct.

    2) Our home is set in the verdant countryside of Kottakkal, Kerala, which has always been, and continues to be one of the most preferred destination for Ayurvedic Treatments across the Globe.

    Should I use "continue" or "continues", and "destination" or "destinations"?
    "continues" is correct. It refers to "the countryside of Kottakkal, Kerala" so it takes the third person singular.
    "destinations" is correct. After "one of the [most]", use the plural.

    3) For your convenience, a private gym, multi cuisine restaurant, cafeteria, swimming pool, and pickup and drop-off facility are also provided.
    Should I use "a" pickup and drop-off?
    You should use "a" if you stick with "facility" but then you need to follow it with "is", not "are". However, I would leave the article out and use "facilities" instead, followed by "are".

    Re: kept in line

    I missed two corrections the first time. You need to say "safety regulations​" in the first sentence. There is no need to capitalise "globe" in the second.

    Re: kept in line

    ... and you need a hyphen in 'multi-cuisine restaurant'.
