Fairly rustic. Can have stand alone cottage or duplex or fourplex (with upper and lower rooms) Intermittent power. The water did not work in my first room and they easily switched me to another. Large, relaxing rooms with a porch (electrical outlet, but no wifi). Not the best shower, but it was clean. Delicious food and good service at restaurant (I'm not sure what bosviool is complaining about). Clean, beautiful pool. Humourless, strict yoga master. Baliness massage available in lovely huts by the pool. It is a resort basically out in the countryside with a few small farms around, a wildlife reserve, and 30 minutes from the elaborately carved marble of the Jain temple that is the attraction here (usually just a stop for the tourist buses). There is no village to speak of and very few hotels. Little stall down the road and one other restaurant, but nothing else. (I think our group was rudely noisy with blaring music so if tour group is in, choose a room far from the main building.) Very noisy chorus of birds, crickets, etc. at night. Wonderful! Very nice respite from the dirty chaos of the cities. Great for nature lovers, not for watching TV or partying.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Aranyawas is set in a wild, mountain valley, hidden away from the outside world. The natural terrain is formed of rugged mountainside with outcrops of rock and indigenous forest. We have tamed a small part of it with orchards of guava, various types of mango, awla, cherry, lychee, lime, orange, pomegranate and chikoo trees. There are also apricots and figs, all of which thrive in the microclimate of the area, which is cooler than the lowlands and enjoys a summer maximum temperature of 30 degrees, though the winter nighttime temperature can drop to almost freezing point.
