Orchard Camp
Pushkar, Rajasthan.
( Operating from September to March every year )
Set in a peaceful rural locale of Ganahera, amidst orchards of an indigenous Indian fruit called Amla (Emblica officinalis) and fields of roses, is the exclusive luxury camp aptly named 'Orchard'. Ganahera is located close to the large open grounds of Pushkar, where Asia's largest camel fair is held annually. Orchard Camp operates from September to March every year. The Resort is surrounded by flowers, home grown vegetables, gardens and multitudes of trees among which hang hammocks on which guests can laze in with a good book!

The grounds of the property are maintained by the local villagers who continue to use age old farming practices that nurture the environment.
A small sleepy town in the heart of Rajasthan, Pushkar gets its worldwide acclaim for two reasons – Asia’s largest camel fair is held here annually. The second reason is ‘The Brahma temple’. According to Hindu mythology – the creator of the universe Lord Brahma (The Hindu God) – is only worshiped at Pushkar because of the only Brahma temple is located here.

Life here revolves around the temples, ghats (wide steps leading to the waters’ edge) that surround the famous Pushkar lake and the vibrant bazaars/markets. Apart from the temples, the streets of Pushkar are a delight in themselves. Quaint winding roads that are lined with small shops selling everything from religious articles to objects d’art, the markets of Pushkar are a veritable treasure trove of collectibles. Silverware, embroidered and batik material, leather shoes and purses and all manner of handmade paper books, diaries, albums all covered with old silk are must buys from here.
Currently we have 11 luxury air-conditioned tents at Orchard. Luxuriously designed, these tents cover an area of about 590 sq. ft. each and have a living area, dressing area, beautifully appointed bedroom, a large bathroom (which is a permanent structure) and a private verandah. Sheer silk curtains separate the bedroom from the living room and dressing area. The interiors are contemporary, and the feel of Rajasthan is brought in by beautiful pieces of blue pottery and marble.

The bedroom area is outfitted with a large queen-size bed that can be converted to a twin. Unique marble lamps provide you with an option of bright or romantic lighting to suit your mood. Each bathroom has 24-hours hot and cold running water. All bathroom accessories are provided by one of India's leading brands of herbal products. Though all mod cons like hair-dryers are available in these bathrooms, bathtubs are not provided in an effort to conserve water.

The dressing area includes a large closet with our signature bathrobes and slippers. The dressing table also doubles up as a writing table. Luggage racks provide ample space for storing. All furniture is made of old hardwood and bears the legacy of a bygone era when elaborate tents were used by royalty during hunting expeditions.
The 'Golghar' or circular tent set in the middle of Orchard Camp acts as the dining tent. This dining tent provides a 360-degree view of the property. Light muslin curtains with bamboo blinds give it a light and airy feel. Serving multi-cuisine food, made of fresh garden vegetables mostly sourced locally, the dining area is a great place for breakfasts and lunches. Dinners are mostly served al-fresco under the stars and around a bonfire. Authentic entertainment performed by an internationally renowned Rajasthani troupe, complete the evenings.
