Info : Chhatra Sagar
This is glamping at its finest on a large and beautiful reservoir in remote Nimaj between Jodhpur and Jaipur. Chhatra Sagar is much like an oasis in an otherwise arid landscape, and is surrounded by lush green spaces and stunning views. Meals, drinks, and excursions are all included in the whole experience, and most people come here to escape.
Chhatra Sagar was created by Thakur Chhatra Singh of Nimaj in the latter half of the nineteenth century to harvest the flow of monsoon rainfall, and has since provided families and farmers with rich agricultural opportunities. It also became quickly known as a great place to dine, converse, and have marvellous parties. The luxury tented camp concept in Rajasthan was born to accommodate dignitaries in long military campaigns and this style has been adapted here as a wonderful hotel option. The best time to come is between October and March, although if the monsoon is weak, the reservoir may be low by the end of February.
The Rajasthani style tents are affectionately known as “mini palaces”. There’s no air-conditioning, but they are all well-appointed with beautifully crafted furnishings and gorgeous lake views. Two of the tents are situated upon a hill, great for panoramic views and complete privacy.
If you need air conditioning or prefer the creature comforts of a resort with rooms, you may want to look elsewhere, but if the Rajasthani luxury camping appeals to you, Chhatra Sagar is a treat, and worth it purely for the spectacular sunset.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
