In the heart of Rajasthan, the colourful land of the Rajpurts, is the region of Shekhawati, taking its name from the powerful Shekhawat clan. The Legends of this historic land have been captured in the
murals and frescos of its havelis, forts, temples, and cenotaphs. Set against this exotic backdrop is Desert Resort Mandawa.
Recreated in the style of a typical Rajasthani village, the Desert Resort Mandawa is a verdant oasis in the midst of a stark desert landscape. Visitors to this haven peopled by camels, peacocks,
and Khejri trees, can experience a whole new world - the aesthetic charm of the rural without compromising on luxury or comfort.
The mystery and romance of the desert are captured in the unusual architecture of the Resort. Created by local village-craftsmen using mud and brick, the cottages reflect the traditional harmony between
man and nature in the region.
Each cottage and room is furnished in a distinctive style. The exteriors are decorated with traditional lime-paste "mandana" or rice-flour patterns which are redone daily by women from the
village, while the interiors are ornamented with mirror-work and glass beads in myriad colours. Authenticity blends seamlessly with modernity. Each cottage has a double-bed, and intimate sitting area,
and a spacious bathroom, complemented by woven fabric and hand-made pottery. Apart form the cottages, guests can choose to stay in a spacious deluxe suite of rooms.
