Ranvas – Nagaur

Filed under: Signature Properties — admin @ 12:55 pm
Within the magnificent Ahhichatragarh Fort, also known as Nagaur Fort, lies the 18th century residences of the sixteen ranis of Maharaja Bakhat Singh of Jodhpur. Part of an ambitious 20 year plan to restore the Fort, they’ve been meticulously revived to offer elegant and inviting accommodation. Now one of the most well preserved queenly residences in India, Ranvas is a heritage property in the purest sense, giving its guests the chance to experience a living legacy and a regal residence from which to explore Ahhichatragarh. During the 18th century, Bakhat Singh, the ruling maharaja of the time, sought to create a refuge from the external troubles of warfare and politics......Read More

Rajakkad Estate, Western Ghats – Madurai (Tamil Nadu)

Filed under: Signature Properties — admin @ 12:53 pm
Originally constructed in the 18th century, this building is a fine example of the southern vernacular, a jigsaw of wooden parts influenced by the house building traditions of Kerala. Drawn from the forests of the Western Ghats, it is a construction of many thousands of interlocking beams, panels and screens, sheltered by a roof canopy that appears to float above, making light of a structural complexity that reflects a forgotten refinement. Rajakkad's Pallam Palace began life in a very different environment. It settles now with quiet authority upon its hill, having found its way here. Twice dismantled, twice transported, twice.....Read More

Palais de Mahe – Pondicherry

Filed under: Signature Properties — admin @ 12:50 pm
Here is a place balanced beautifully at the intersection of two imaginings. If the streets ,with their neat plaster bungalows and flower-decked balconies speak the patois of Colonial France, then the air, salt-laced and fragrant with spice, unmistakably places you on the Coromandel coast of India. The street signs speak several languages fluently. Historic buildings jostle against charming sidewalk cafes. Trendy boutiques stand next to sari shops. And swish design studios share space with bangle sellers, temples and bustling markets. It is these rich contrasts that we studied, absorbed, then blended into Palais de Mahe. Like Pondicherry, our architecture is faithful to.....Read More

Diphlu River Lodge – Kazaranga (Assam)

Filed under: Signature Properties — admin @ 12:45 pm
Kazaranga National Park is one of the less-known wildlife parks in India, covering some 430 square kilometres and set within the flood plain of the legendry Brahmaputra River. It has the largest population of rhino in India, and also is home to a sizable population of Bengal tiger and wild elephant (although tiger sightings are pretty rare due to the long grass that the park is famous for, and the tiger’s ability to hide exceptionally well!) You can expect to find these extensive grasslands leading to a multitude of interconnecting streams and small lakes making the park exceptionally beautiful and.....Read More

Brunton Boatyard Cochin

Filed under: Signature Properties — admin @ 12:43 pm
Brunton Boatyard, circa 1895 - Geo Brunton and Sons was once among the most respected ship builders in Kochi. The location of their old boatyard was perfect, on a quiet harbour-front deep in the heart of Fort Cochin, where every by-lane could whisper tales from the city's colourful past. Here, we set about recreating the world of 19th century Malabar, using the precise building materials of the time - brick, lime, wood and terracotta. Moored on a historic stretch of Cochin's famed harbour, the Brunton Boatyard Hotel is our tribute to another age. Resurrected from the remains of a Victorian shipbuilding yard, it.....Read More
