“The spaces are calm and quiet. To the front are decks with views over the dam visited by more than 250 species of bird, from inquisitive green bee-eaters and iridescent blue kingfishers to flocks of shoveler ducks. In the bathrooms are tubs for long soaks. Above the beds are skylights through which to watch the stars…”

THE CAMP

Luxury tents have always been an important part of Rajput lifestyle. Constant campaigns in far flung lands meant long stays in tents under inhospitable conditions. Tents were the only luxury available and soon these “homes away from home” evolved into mobile, mini-palaces. RAAS Chhatrasagar captures the essence of this romance.

The new tents are larger, sound-proofed, generally more solid structures with a tented effect. They are modern, with soft muted colours, Jodhpur stone, teak furniture and sky lights; understated but gorgeously chic and refreshing. They have air-conditioning and heating so the camp will now remain open all year – one of only a couple of tented camps in India to be open year round! A new walkway / approach to the tents allows the enlarged tents to have sitouts both front and back and also more privacy, whilst retaining their idyllic views. There’s nothing quite like sitting on your verandah here, with a good book, sipping a chilled glass of something, and being rewarded with glorious, uninterrupted views and virtually no sign of habitation.

THE ESSENCE & EXPERIENCE

The essence of the camp remains unchanged as the inspired owners of RAAS have a strong belief and passion for the place and are making these improvements in a hugely sensitive way. There is still a major focus on the bird life, farming communities, walks and rewilding with the activities being focused on exactly that. Accompanied by one of the knowledgeable naturalists, wander out to explore the farm, local temples and meet the villagers. Take a gentle dawn stroll around the lake, or an evening jeep drive through the grasslands, spying myriad bird species and herds of blue bull. Finish with a ‘surprise’ sundowner, spend a while relaxing in the lovely tented sitting room, and enjoy animated chats around a blazing fire under a canopy of stars, before settling into a culinary feast of a dinner. The food here is quite exceptional and well lauded – they use local, organic home produce as much as possible and the age old family recipes receive some of the highest praise in Rajasthan.
