Into the Wild

India Today - - BEST OF INDIA - by Al­lan Blan­chard, CEO, Wildlife Trails

ARa­jasthani wel­come is ex­pected in most ho­tels in Ra­jasthan, but the very de­sign of Vanaashrya gives a feel of wilder­ness and an eerie si­lence en­velops the 12 acres of land sur­rounded by hills. The place has good avail­abil­ity of un­der­ground wa­ter which is used to cre­ate green­ery and wa­ter fea­tures like canals and wa­ter­falls. A well com­pletes the ru­ral touch. But lux­ury is ev­i­dent in the way tents are fur­nished. The re­sort is a 5- km drive from Tahla gate, a lit­tle- known en­trance of the Sariska Tiger Re­serve. Vanaashrya is not about rushed sa­faris to see ha­rassed tigers. The pace is gen­tler and more re­fined.
