The spirit of the coutryside blends well with the comforts of resort living here, and guests can relax poolside under the shade of a palm tree in rustic environs, or wander the 32 acres, far from Pushkar's chaotic main bazaar, a 15-minute jeep ride away. European-style alluring rooms (in cottages) have views of the Savitri Temple that crowns a mountain near the resort. Because of its location—technically beyond town limits—the hotel serves meat dishes and alcoholic
drinks, in an otherwise dry and vegetarian town. The hotel's regal camel cart rides (additional price) are famous—a sunset journey through nearby sand dunes.
