Jaisalmer has always been a mystical gateway poised on the edge of the Thar - the great INDIAN Desert. Made of honey coloured sand stone, a world heritage site, Jaisalmer Fort is possibly one of the few continually inhabited forts in the country, though under duress because of the resident population and tourist influx, it still commands a massive interest among travellers. Immortalised by the great Satyajit Ray as ‘Sonar Kella’ the Jaisalmer Fort lives upto its name, as it stands rather regally it’s turrets reminiscent of the swirling skirts of the desert dancers.
Suryagarh, a mere twenty minute drive away from the fort towards the Thar is an experience for travellers offering immersions in the region and surrounds. A sprawling, modern fortress Suryagarh’s location in the stark desert landscape, stands out slightly squat, with its elegant lines of golden sandstone. The well-tended gardens, lake, fossil hill, trails surround the fort in a verdant cover that double up as event spaces for musical evenings or private dinners, much of this one traverses during the grand welcome – to the beat of the drums and the soulful songs of the
Rooms, suites and villas of Suryagarh are spread over three floors, 72 finely crafted abodes, detailed for every comfort, stylishly embellished, dotted with art and colour, and cleverly enslave light and space to perfection. Large, ensuite bathrooms, airy and well-lit are a delight with signature bath and toilet amenities.
At Suryagarh, everywhere you look there is a underlying sense of exclusivity and certain beguiling beauty - from the fabrics used for curtains, cushions, throws, arm chairs and settees , to collectibles stacked neatly into niches, swathes of colour against the golden stone to photographs and art on the walls. Everyday decorations for table tops, mantle and trays use anything from locally sourced small brass pots to urns and large basins of stone or copper, filled or floated with fresh or seemingly fresh boungainvillea. Everything magically comes together in a style that is often simple, local and unique.
Suryagarh’s amenities and features are woven around creative narratives often conceptualised from stories and landscapes around. For example Rait - their signature Spa has therapies and scrubs fashioned from salts and desert sands using native wellness insights is definitely one of its kind. The team at Suryagarh has scripted several excursions, experiences and dining events, each of them inspired by the its location in the Thar and creatively executed by marrying landscape, décor, cuisine, colour to match the mood of the day. Every dining event whether it is indoors at the Nosh or Marwar or outdoors like the dune dining or picnic sun-downers or set up as a private event in the courtyards and gardens, is dramatic in its presentation and matches with some of the best dining experiences in the country.
Finally Suryagarh’s curated experiences gather every minute detail of the region – tradition, history, geography, topography, art, music, wildlife into a series of walks and drives to create immersions of this region that is a perfect gateway to the beat of the drums and the soulful songs of the....Manganyars.
