Taj Hotels has unveiled a new resort in Rajasthan that has been designed in the region’s classic royal style.
The new Gateway Resort Pushkar Bypass Ajmer offers just 81 rooms and suites, surrounded by landscaped gardens and overlooked by the Aravalli Mountains.
Much of the resort was built using the distinctive pink Rajasthani sandstone, and every room features private balcony seating, traditional “jhoolas”, or swings, and yoga facilities.
“Ajmer and Pushkar are two secret jewels in the beautiful state of Rajasthan; they are cities with a rich history stretching back to the Rajputs, Mughals and Marathas and which blends Hindu and Sufi tradition,” said Nagendra Hada, the resort’s general manager. “The 81 rooms and suites at the resort are inspired by this heritage and offer guests the best of Rajasthan.”
Facilities at the Gateway Resort include a swimming pool sunk into a large courtyard, a spa, and restaurant serving local Rajasthani cuisine. There is also almost 500m² of conference and banqueting space, with three function venues.
The Gateway Resort Pushkar Bypass Ajmer is 15km from Ajmer Railway Station and 140km from Jaipur Airport, while Pushkar is 11km from the resort by road.
The new resort becomes Taj’s 30th Gateway-branded property.
