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.
