A lot has been said about the Samode’s and Devi’s of Rajasthan while planning luxury india holidays but not many are aware of the colourful Tree of Life Resort and Spa located 45 minutes away from Jaipur in a small idyllic village of Kukas. Each villa has a large domed bedroom with intricate glasswork that look onto a private pool or gardens designed with comfort and serenity in mind. At The Tree of Life, the chefs offer mouthwatering dishes that highlight the state’s culinary traditions but if it is international cuisine you’re after, you need not worry as they can offer virtually any type of cuisine, again based on what you crave that day.
While on this gorgeous luxury indiaholiday, if you are celebrating your birthday or anniversary, a romantic dinner for just the two of you can be arranged with chilled champagne, a live grill, and evocative classical music from the deserts of Rajasthan, complete with a candlelit table and a canopy of stars, all in the privacy of the garden in your own luxury villa.
Seeing the sights with an expert guide is always on top of the list when it comes to luxury india holidays. Apart from visiting the Amber Fort which isn’t not very far from the resort, several interesting activities can be arranged for you like visiting the local villages on a 1965 Willy’s jeep or joining the students at the nearby Kukas school supported by the resort where you can teach them a subject that is of interest to you. Not to mention a day trip to Jaipur can be arranged with a private guide who will arrange visits to the City Palace, Observatory and the Palace of Winds to name a few. On returning from their signature excursions enjoy their large bell shaped pool that was an inspiration from the ancient ‘step-wells’ of Rajasthan or relax on their open-air sit out that offers a bird’s eye view of the entire valley which is an ideal place to enjoy a drink before dinner. Cushioned seating and low tables offer a charming spot to enjoy live music performances or cuddle up by the bonfire in winter.
