India Does Luxe

written by | Posted on February 1st, 2012

Posh jungle lodges replete with creature comforts are &Beyond’s (andbeyondindia.com) calling card. With four jungle lodges in Central India, &Beyond takes full advantage of tiger reserves and area parks. Lodge guests can find everything—depending on their choice of lodge or tented camp—from rooftop platforms that let them safely sleep outdoors to yoga amenities to enjoy en-suite.

For example, Pashan Garh Panna Wilderness Lodge, ensconced in jungle and located a few minutes away from Panna National Park, features stone cottages with leather furniture and private verandahs.

Amanresorts (800-477-9180; amanresorts.com), also well known in luxury circles, has brought three outstanding properties to India, in New Delhi, Rajasthan and on the outskirts of Ranthambore National Park. The latter, Aman-i-Khas, consists of 10 luxury air-conditioned tents, a “spa tent” and excursions that allow guests to see tigers and other wildlife in their natural habitat.
