Ranthambore has been on my list for a while now, it was also my first ever experience of any wildlife national park in India. When I heard about the beautiful property –The earth, the concept of the property intrigued me more than tigers.
Born out of passion to bring a unique experience of witnessing wildlife in harmony with nature, The Earth Resort just like the name suggests, offers rooms and villas made of mud. All cottages are built with natural and sustainable material sourced from in and around the site, their purpose was to not disturb the local ecology, rather blend beautifully with it; the structure is sturdy as well as resistant to natural calamities. It is a sustainable and eco-friendly property that is a perfect getaway from hustle of city and close to nature.
Room: every cottage is unique, named after the element Water, the cottage we stayed in like others is organically designed cottages are built using the Cob Technique. These cottages are great for couples or just like me travel with your best friend to make the most out of the indoor pool next to the bed, there are numerous glass and mud jalis, creating a kaleidoscopic effect with the light during the day and a warm atmosphere at night.
The earthiness of the property imbibes so deep, it I beautiful and experience like no more. Pair it with kulahd chai, local delicacies and entertainment that makes it a beautiful overall package. Using the Miyawaki technique, the enclosed resort space has 700 odd trees planted along with orchards with 500 trees having 17 different fruit species. The resort offers a pool, spa, open space for your leisure walks or workout session amidst nature and an amphitheater for performances (imagine having a beautiful intimate wedding here)
Within the earthiness of the space, luxury finds its own vastness and makes you feel like royalty. Well-equipped rooms with modern amenities and lavish interiors make you forget that you are in the wild until you glance outside the window or sit in the lounge next to your personal lawn
