Rawla Narlai..An experience beyond vacations!

Contemplating on the images sitting in each folder and umpteen number of journeys done and not even one being shared in the blog..i wonder why am i not getting time to share these :)- each journey has a time  to unfold as i think:)-
The last year we looked forward to exciting journeys by road,longer journeys,where you needed to rest a night and then the rest of the journey the next day.Although it was exciting ,it was tiring too at times..
Last winter we decided to go a little beyond Ajmer ..,a little before Udaipur and Ranakpur and we specifically went to stay in the beautiful village called Narlai.There are very little people to come to the village to stay, as its an enroute stop to Udaipur. I wanted to visit the village,the amazing fort and spend some time with the surroundings which had been in my mind for a very long time.

Rawal Narlai  ...sits on a a beautiful and sleepy village on a country road.Hidden Away in the heart of Aravalli hills,at the foot of a mammoth granite rock,surrounded by forested hills and rocky outcrops,Rawala Narlai is a beautifully maintained heritage resort ,which was once a hunting lodge of Jodhpurs Royal family.Still owned by  members of Jodhpur family,the resort is now transformed from a mere hunting lodge into a stunning ,stylish boutique hotel with all its character and structure maintained.

The pink bougainvilleas all over,the plumerias at the entrance,the blue bells over the walls and doors,the overflowing white bougainvilleas,the red turbaned waiters,the jaipur rugs and so much more an experience beyond vacations!

Who doesn't get enamoured by these breathtaking images and light:)-

just stood gazing at the beautiful bougainivlleas as we entered the courtyard..this is what we wanted to see :)-how it trailed 

a view from up..looking down

the setting sun caught

the light shone everywhere

beautiful sights,beautiful prints

the room..the bed

hawa ka jhonka:)-

the white peeled paints and violets..what combination

lot of light pouring in..subtle white

the world of grace and charm..

the light that entered the crevices,fell down

yes..the plumerias

basking in the winter light

gracefully a necklace
