LAP OF NA­TURE

Jalashruti Is­land Re­sort

India Today - - COVER STORY -

Their web­site it­self gives you a peek into the won­der­ful hol­i­day with na­ture that you’re about to en­joy—the au­dio has sounds of tweet­ing birds and sooth­ing mu­sic that in­stantly tempt you to drive down to the is­land re­treat at a 1.5 hour jour­ney from the city. Drive up to the en­trance point on the main­land and a two minute ride on a raft takes you over the lake wa­ters to reach the is­land re­sort stand­ing amidst a lemon and straw­berry gar­den. They have 14 rooms and cot­tages eight of which of­fer spec­tac­u­lar views of

the river and the ex­pe­ri­ence that fol­lows is all about re­lax­ing and get­ting pam­pered. Curl up with a book in the ham­mocks, take a bul­lock­cart ride or watch the ducks wad­dling in the pond as you tuck into the sump­tu­ous high tea in the farms. If you want a feel of liv­ing in a house­boat, opt for the cot­tages by the river where the deck opens out into the river. They have live mu­sic and bon­fire in the evenings and while the look is rus­tic, they have modern ameni­ties. Sum­mer months tend to be hot here and the re­sort is closed dur­ing the mon­soon so keep this on your itin­er­ary for your post Oc­to­ber break when you’re look­ing for a de-stress quiet re­treat.
