Song you should listen to when you arrive:
Joy Division – “Atmosphere”
The incredibly peaceful atmosphere of this Indian hideaway.
Something you will not find anywhere else:
The wooden “monkey stick” found in every room in case you get some unwanted visitors.
Best time of the day:
Early morning when the haze of the night still lays over the surrounding hills.
Old Indian luxury, enormous attention to detail. The calls of monkeys and parrots in the nearby trees are a unique daily soundtrack.
Room we stayed in:
Terrace Haveli Suite.
Two hours outside of Jaipur, surrounded by a few villages and breathtaking nature.
After a beautiful traditional welcome ceremony, each guest received a Rakhi, a sacred thread that symbolizes long life and protection against enemies.
