Tree of Life Resort and Spa, Jaipur. India

What we have found for you could be your next private holiday or perhaps a luxurious wedding destination! 

This is home-away from home. We have found a gem of a place in India’s desert state of Rajasthan. While you will not be far away from the sand dunes, camels, good food, rich culture and different hues of life, you will still be wrapped in the arms of luxury and lush-green environs.

Tree of Life Resort and Spa, Jaipur. India

There is no reason why you should resist to book luxury villas, but if you need a little inspiration, we could help you a bit here.

Hardly an hour-long drive from the international airport of Jaipur, is this luxury resort of Tree of Life Resorts and Spa. Aptly named, it breathes trees and life. Generally, when we play the luxury card, we score fancy perks that only money can buy: private villas with private pools, couple spa, meditation sessions connecting you to your soul, traditional exercise forms and much more. If you want a little bit more of detailing, we could talk about featherlight pillows and plumped up and bouncy beds awaiting your arrival.

Yes, that is indulgence.

But, do you yearn for personalised attention, a helping hand always at the corner of your eye, the chef discussing your food preferences on a daily basis, spa without stepping out of your villa, trees that will fill your eyes and heart with their colour and fragrance, a private pool with room service and tons of space to walk around hand-in-hand? And probably, not a soul to disturb unless you want some attention.

Rates

Doubles (with breakfast) starting at AED 550.

The Basics

Tree of Life Resort and Spa, Jaipur is at the footsteps of the Aravali hills. A 13-villa property set in 7 acres of land is just about 30 minutes away from the royal pink-city of Jaipur.

The man behind the resort, Himmat Anand, loves paying attention to details and the architecture reflects his taste very well. The beautiful resort is built in the royal Rajasthan-style with the locally-available sandstone. The domed ceilings, private gardens with pools and beautiful mountain views are a sight. The infinity pool overlooking the mountains is as beautiful as it can get.

Ask the hotel to arrange for airport/station transfers for most cab drivers have still not discovered this hidden gem.

The Room

Luxury is an understatement with a private sit out and a television set complete with some amazing collection of international movies, a garden sit out next to the pool–perfect for that romantic evening. A private pool where you can enjoy without anyone disturbing you and a private outdoor couples spa area right next to your pool. Apart from your indoor shower area, you can have an open-to-the sky shower in your own garden.

The Difference

Your chef will walk into your room every day to understand your food preferences and then serve your accordingly. Dedicated butler service who knows your tastes in a couple of hours. While it has an Indian touch, the staff is trained in a manner to welcome Muslim guests and pamper them. Do check with the team to help you with a Halal holiday before you reach and rest assured, your demands will be met in style. It is a pet-friendly resort if you wish you get yours along.

The resort employs locals. You can enjoy a bit of farming if that interests you. The owner takes care of the education of the children of the employees. In your free time, you could volunteer to interact with the bright students and teach them a thing or two. You could also take a ride to the nearby village and eat with the locals. And yes, who wouldn’t want to take an elephant ride? Not you? No issues, you can watch them taking a bath.

Our Suggestion

Yes of course, it is a luxury resort for your private holiday, honeymoon or some quality time with your spouse. We suggest, you should not miss out on the spa therapies that will for sure rejuvenate you after your long flight. Do consider this resort if you are looking at a destination wedding. It will not be as expensive on your pocket as Udaipur, but it will certainly match the standards and give your guests to remember your special day all their lives! When well-lit, the resort comes alive.

Do visit the place during rains!
