North India and Rajasthan camps - Chhatra Sagar
There are no monuments nearby for sightseeing, no spa or pool, and no television or phone in your room all of which help to make Chhatra Sagar such a complete and wonderful rural retreat. With just 13 tents pitched on a 100 year old dam this is a lovely intimate place to stay where the peace of the countryside, star spangled night skies and al fresco dining are the luxury on offer.
But this is far from roughing it. The large canvas tents have huge beds with plump pillows, there’s plenty of hot water in the granite ensuite shower rooms and comfy rattan chairs out front from which to enjoy the morning sun and birdsong rising over lake. Two tents on top of a small hill above the dam are perfect for romantics.
Your stay is hosted by the charming men of the Nimaj family which has owned the surrounding farmland for more than a century and strived always to work it with the interest of the local community and care of the environment in mind. Harsh, Raj and Nandi will guide you through the constellations of the night sky, around the local village and school and on fabulous nature and bird watching walks, the latter accompanied by a telescope bearer and the family dogs.
Even though the tents are close together and the lake dries up if the monsoon rains fail, the location and delightful owners for whom nothing is ever too much trouble means Chhatra Sagar consistently receives excellent reviews. As the property is so small, it sells out quickly, so ask us to book your trip well in advance to secure your stay and the best of rural India.
