Far-off, distant retreats are a fail-safe antidote during times when the hustle-bustle of big metropolitan cities starts getting to you. Lucky for me, a Mumbai resident, I had the pleasure to experience the hospitality of Brij Bageecha Kukas, located 40 minutes away from Jaipur. The newest offering from Brij Hotels, who now have five hotels in Rajasthan, Brij Bageecha Kukas welcomes guests to a world of luxury and tranquillity.
It is tucked away in 11 acres of beautiful greenery, surrounded by water features, blossoming fruit orchards, organic vegetable farms, and well-kept gardens. This luxurious experience resort offers a deep getaway whilst being conveniently close to Delhi and Jaipur.
Full of thriving gardens and orchards, big bodies of water and a food farm, the expansive, elegantly designed villas include the best of indigenous Jaipur characteristics. Rustic and warm, it’s the little things like hangers wrapped in block printed fabrics, reusable water bottles and the delivery of soaked almonds to kickstart your day that sets it apart from the ordinary. With a focus on harmoniously fusing nature, wellness, and leisure, the pet-friendly garden resort surely warrants a visit with your pup.
The villas at Brij Bageecha come with individual pools and courtyards that offer total seclusion and enjoyment. Well-lit and designed in tandem with zen aesthetics, the knick-knacks tucked away in each villa provide a sense of peace and wellbeing. Each villa features a private, complete pantry, en suite bathrooms for both men and women, distinct shower cubicles, study areas, and living rooms with separate powder rooms, all overlooking a private lake.
Brij Bageecha also offers a one-of-a-kind eating experience, where every meal is transformed into a culinary voyage. The restaurant features an all-day dining option, Sangri and a bar, and Rang, the property’s sunset lounge. The property also provides guests with a variety of experiences, such as canoeing on the property’s private lake, farm-to-table dining, Rajasthani folk musical evenings, village dining experiences, and much more. Our group of journalists was also involved in pottery making and block printing activities held in-house to personalise the experience. Good fun!
Through the production of local jobs and the utilisation of sustainable building materials, Brij Hotels manages to build an ecosystem of sustainable tourism that preserves these habitats while also benefiting the local community economically.
Presently, 7 properties are run by Brij Hotels around India, including one each in the states of Uttar Pradesh (Varanasi), Rajasthan (Kukas, Pali, Jawai, Bikaner, and Jaipur), and Himachal Pradesh (Dalhousie). With hotels being developed in Bandhavgarh, Dharamshala, Nainital, Goa, and Pokhara, Nepal, the group plans to expand to numerous other locations. So, bookmark this and get started on your travelling plans for the upcoming months!
