My sporadic blogging is usually spur of the moment, and I don’t generally give my posts that much thought. However, Amanbagh - I have been really wanting to post about for a long time.
India is without a doubt one of the most magical places I have ever had the privilege of exploring. The next time I go back - it needs to be in style. As much as I loved hurtling around with my backpack, it would be great to chill. Namely - AMANBAGH.
I’ve heard raving reviews from friends in Hong Kong, and it looks simply sublime!
The topography of the Alwar region consists of sandy plains interspersed with craggy hills, a stark contrast to Amanbagh’s setting which is an oasis of verdant greenery. Deriving its name from aman, meaning ‘peace’ in Sanskrit and bagh, meaning ‘garden’ in Hindi, Amanbagh lies within a walled compound once used by the Maharajah of Alwar to site his mobile hunting camps in search of the elusive tigers known to roam the nearby hills. Long since abandoned, the trees and vegetation continued to thrive due to a reliable source of underground water. The resort is very much a modern day ‘Mughal Palace’, conceived in the present, but paying homage to the architecture and design of India’s golden age.
The amphitheater for all things that I draw inspiration and take notice of, from art and architecture to global politics and travel.
Living in Hong Kong. (Most of the time.)
