Jawai Bandh

A member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux association, Jawai Bandh is a splendid luxury tented camp set in untrammelled wilderness where leopards still roam free. Situated between Udaipur – the romantic City of Lakes, and Jodhpur, renowned for its fort and blue-painted houses, this unique destination offers opulence, adventure and the kind of wide open spaces one would never realise India still has.

Accommodation at Jawai Bandh is in 9 beautiful tented suites, including the Royal Tented Suite which offers unrivalled privacy, its own plunge pool and the services of a private butler. All have a subtle palette of grey, black and white, with splashes of red inspired by the turbans of the nomadic Rabari herders who reside in the surrounding hills. Behind the hand-stitched creamy canvas, guests can expect to find a large, comfortable bed and ensuite bathroom containing a powerful hot shower.

There are no set times or locations for meals at Jawai Bandh. Breakfast could be in the bush, luncheon by the lake followed by dinner beside a campfire under the stars. Things to do during your stay are endless. Consider tracking wildlife in an open 4X4 vehicle, watching flamingo at a lagoon or following a temple trail. You could also attend a local festival or simply unwind with yoga or a massage in an open-air pavilion.

August and September are warm to occasionally hot in the day with cool evenings.

Combine With: The vibrant city of Varanasi situated on the banks of the holy Ganges River and the temples of Khajuraho with their exquisite carvings and erotic sculptures.

What Clients Say

“As a traveller who enjoys both culture & especially adventure, Taj Temples & Tigers not only met but exceeded my expectations. I found India to be a fascinating country of many contrasts and the balance of this tour was just right. The planning by Natural Focus Tours was absolutely impeccable.”
“This particular trip was as smooth as silk, thanks to the efforts put in by Annie, AKA Anne-Marie Zambelli, our larger than life Tour Escort. I was goggle eyed at the level of care she provided, not to mention her first aid kit! It was an absolute joy to be able to sit back and just enjoy the trip without having to worry about any of the details in what is a fairly chaotic country. Suffice to say, thank you Natural Focus for a wonderful experience.”
“Natural Focus organised the holiday for us, nothing was a problem, they gave us excellent advice about where to visit and how long we needed at each destination. It was a fabulous holiday with something for everyone within a short travelling distance. Our guide was with us for the entire trip; he was a delight, with a great sense of humour and an ability to track down anything, especially good food.”
