Continuing my reveal of the most glamourous hotels for 2014.
Today: SUJAN JAWAI LEOPARD CAMP, Rajasthan, India
For a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, head off to Sujan’s latest opening in the heart of Rajasthan’s wilderness, located between the former kingdoms of Jodphur and Udaipur. Known for its pioneering approach to sustainable luxury, Sujan’s Jawai Leopard Camp is made up of eight luxe tented suites and is the only property to lie within this unexplored region.
The spacious tents have a timeless style – with metal work made by artisans, original wildlife photography and canvas and leather accents. Private bathrooms, air conditioning and private viewing decks add to the appeal, as do the dining tents, library, lounges and spa that offers therapies using indigenous herbs and oils of the region. But, ultimately, the thrill here lies in the surroundings. The area hosts a diverse eco-system and guests can explore the local terrain in jeeps with trained trackers and guides with the bonus being a high chance of seeing a leopard in the wild.
