“Step through an ancient creaking door and you are a world away from Pushkar's dusty streets. A cavernous white marble courtyard awaits you, strewn with rose petals, and a sonorous fountain. Follow aged bougainvillea vines as you ascend toward your room. With just twelve, each individually decorated, ranging from simple, to family rooms and 'the jewel in the crown, the rooftop Asana suite. Cavernous four posters and low-slung beds look out through arched windows across the town and lake. Bright, patterned textiles adorn beds and sofas and traditional Rajasthani lamps bathe them in soft light. A culinary treat awaits you at the rooftop restaurant, Sixth Sense. Serving flavoursome North Indian cuisine and a novel European thali. A wonderful hideaway in the middle of town.”
