Water Retreats to Escape To Before Summer Ends

Ten Second Takeaway

It’s been a hot couple of months and there’s still a couple of them left. With some long weekends on the calendar, we are going on a lake resort trail… only because the beach is too far away.


Cottages dot either side of the man-made lake, Lakshman Sagar and each open upto a splashing pool of their own. Boy, can we only imagine the champagne flowing on a romantic break here. The neighbouring village has inspired each cottage, but not one is identical to the other. Outside, the pools overlook the lake while inside, the interiors are something else-with brass vessels and accoutrements that reflect the local culture of Rajasthan. You can go in for local liquor tasting, star gazing or simply chilling by the rock-cut pool.
