Positioned on a dramatic landscape in the erstwhile princely state of Mewar in Rajasthan, Taj Aravali Resort & Spa sets new standards of luxury in Udaipur, the famed city of lakes and legendary land of the Aravalis. The resort is spread over 27 acres, creating an expansive oasis surrounded on all sides by the rugged Aravali Ranges, while staying in close proximity to the city centre and the sublime Fateh Sagar, one of the five major names that make up the city’s sophisticated lake system. Our contemporary, ergonomic design philosophy is inspired by Rajasthani architecture and its famed nomadic culture. With the single-pole desert tent as leitmotif, décor elements such as the gokhra – a low seating area by the window – and furnishings inspired by Mewar’s world-class equestrian heritage bring local flavor to a minimalist luxury ethos. As rugged as it is romantic, the resort blends opposites organically, in both facilities and exceptional services.
A destination unto itself, the resort has 92 well-appointed rooms, suites and luxury tents staggered over different levels across an undulating landscape. We also have an all-day diner – Tiri, a specialty pure vegetarian restaurant – Javitri, an alfresco grill – Ridgeview, and an outstanding bar – Odeypore Lounge overlooking the swimming pool and manicured gardens. The adventurous spirit of the mountains seeps into our unrivalled sports and fitness facilities, including modern squash, badminton, a gymnasium and a state-of-the-art indoor golf simulator. With a 34-seater movie theatre, a JIVA Spa housed in its own block and resplendent banquet venues, the resort is perfectly poised to delight families, adventurous travellers as well as jet-setting professionals looking to refresh and rejuvenate themselves.
