Rural Retreats in Rajasthan

Lakshman Sagar is a decidedly luxurious take on Rajasthan’s most unvisited area, Pali – nestled between Jodhpur and the Aravalli hills- without trying to mould its surroundings into a manicured golf course environment. The point of this six year-old resort is to revel in rural living while sipping a cocktail in a pool cut out from a flat rock.

There are two restored buildings positioned around a lake, one the Mardana (male) and the other the Zenana (female) wing of a 19th-century hunting lodge erected for the Thakur of Raipur. There are courtyard fountains, psychedelic mosaic floors, telescopes for stargazing and intimate alcoves full of cushions and knitting needles stuck into rolls of neon pink wool. There are also 12 new cottage villas constructed entirely out of local materials and scattered over 32 acres around the lake. But no matter where you decide to settle down with a book, your elbow won’t be too far from a port decanter.



The offer includes:

Self Exploration walks on the Aaravalis with help of maps
Guided hiking , nature hunting a and cycling tours
Birding on the kayak 
Therapy sessions to calm the nerves , and rejuvenate the senses
Customized afternoon campings and lunches

Honeymoon at Lakshman Sagar, Rajasthan

Strategically located in the center of the Marwar and Mewar region of Rajasthan, Lakshman Sagar lies 10 kilometers off NH-14 en-route to Jodhpur via Pali. Built by 19th century’s Thakur of Raipur Lakshman Singh, Lakshman Sagar has been recontextualised from a hunting lodge into a resort with a conservationist view of the heritage and surroundings.

A beautiful amalgamation of Rajasthani design with eco-sensibility, the 12 cottages at Lakshman Sagar have been carefully planned in a sustainable manner. The historical influences from the days of the British Raj are still very evident in every corner of Lakshman Sagar.

Made-to-order meals served in the lounge or room service—as per your choice
