I am a travel freak. I hit upon a beautiful destination recently on the recommendation of a friend and that is, Fatehgarh Heritage Resort in Udaipur. When I reached this stunning looking Palace, it was an ‘Ah’ moment for me. Ah, because finally I found a Sanctuary which is eco-friendly, based on the principles of Vaastu, devoid of corridors, escalators and elevators.
I feel this place is meant for a very selective kind of people who find pleasure in simple things and who like to spend time outdoors with nature enjoying the 360 degree views.
Where could I swim in the open right in the lap of Aravalis. I had 2 kids with me and they had a ball. They were too busy going on treks and village walks and horse rides besides of course, swimming. They had carried some games with them which they played on the terrace in the evening while I enjoyed my coffee with a book.
Hats off to Mr Rathore (the brain behind this amazing structure) for his sensitivity towards preserving the eco-system in combination with Vastu Principles. He has put solar panels, sown 30,000 trees all around, and made step wells to conserve energy and store water.
Finally, I must add, my room was very comfortable with all ultra modern facilities. Very warm service and no intrusion in privacy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Fateh Garh, a Heritage Renaissance Resort - Sanctuary, perched on the edge of Udaipur city in the Aravalli ranges, with 360° commanding views, welcomes guests with style & traditional fanfare. Fateh Garh, a 50 room property offers travelers a spacious, peaceful and quiet refuge from the noisy and crowded urban India. Conde Nast Hot List 2009:- "Until now the best places to stay in Udaipur have been the princely piles on Lake Pichola's shores or its fairy-tale island palace. Fateh Garh offers something different: "Heritage Renaissance" style. Perched on a hilltop 20 minutes outside the city, this newly constructed 51-room hotel incorporates local stone and antique architectural elements culled from abandoned historic buildings. A confection of bulbous domes, sugar-white pillars, crenellations, and intricate jali screens, it escapes the kitschy through its graceful proportions and airy reception areas, courtyard, and verandas—all of which are graced with antiques and delicate frescoes inspired by the style of Rajput miniatures. Lie by the infinity pool, listening to the sound of splashing fountains mingling with live classical shehnai music. The hotel kitchen does best with local Mewari dishes, which are a welcome change from standard Indian hotel fare". ... more less
