the heart of Rajasthan , the colorful land of the Rajputs is the region
of Shekhawati, taking its name from the powerful Shekhawat clan. The
legends of this historic land have been captured in the murals and
frescoes of its Havelis, Forts, Temples, and cenotaphs. Set against this
exotic backdrop is The Desert Resort , Mandawa.
The mystery and romance
of the desert are captured in the unusual architecture of the resort.
Recreated in the style of a typical Rajasthani village, The Desert
Resort is a verdant oasis in the midst of a stark desert landscape.
Visitors to this haven
peopled by camels, peacocks, birds and khejri trees, can experience a
whole new world - the aesthetic charm of the rural without compromising
on luxury or comfort.
The Desert Resort reflects the traditional harmony between man and
nature in the region.
There are 60
well-furnished, air-conditioned rooms including cottages and spacious
deluxe suites. Each cottage and room is furnished in a distinctive
style. The exteriors are decorated with traditional lime-paste “MANDANA”
or rice-flour patterns which are redone daily by women from the village,
while the interiors are ornamented with mirror-work and glass beads in
seamlessly with modernity. Each cottage has a sitting room and a
spacious bathroom, complimented by woven fabric and hand-made pottery.
Apart from the cottages, guests can choose to stay in the spacious
deluxe suites. The Resort also has special rooms and deals for the
