Laxman Sagar Resort
A 19th century hunting lodge, belonging to the then Thakur of Raipur, Lakshman Sagar Resort is a little-known property that’s perfect for a slow traveler who wants to spend the time in best of experiential resorts. Here, you get to witness the essence of rural Rajasthan through cultural performances and decor, and still get to experience the best of luxury with your private plunge pool right outside your thatched-roof cottages.
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.
