Families are able to select one that works best for their needs depending on various parameters such as the size of the family; the number of people you usually travel with and the extent of privacy you prefer.
The studio apartments for instance are the smallest in size and can easily accommodate two kids less than 12 years of age in a spacious sofa cum bed. These apartments offer best privacy for a couple with no children.
On the other hand, the one bedroom apartment is larger than a studio and rather comfortable for 4 adults; or 2 adults with two kids. These apartments offer a sofa cum bed in a separate living room, providing enhanced privacy.
Finally the two bedroom apartment can accommodate 6 adults and offer significant privacy for two couples. This apartment is ideal for larger families travelling together.
Membership Based on Season
Another common feature that you will come across in Club Mahindra feedback is memberships based on seasons. Holidaymakers are able to match their holiday patterns with a number of color coded seasons. For instance, the Purple Season is for those who wish to acquire the option of travelling during any time of the year but also specifically prefer planning holidays around festivals, special events such as New Year’s Eve and national holidays.
The red season is for vacationers that prefer taking trips during the peak seasons such as college and school vacations and weeks around major festivals. For those that travel during seasons that aren’t really considered peak but rather the “Shoulder Season” before and after the off period may consider signing up for the White option. This is the time when regular tourists are back to work and there is a sense of peace at most destinations. Finally, the blue season is ideal for those looking for unconventional travel experiences during off seasons.

Amazing Moments at Jaisalmer

Jaisalmer, also known as “The Golden city”, is a town in the Indian state of Rajasthan. Located in the heart of the Thar or the Great Indian Desert, it is a World Heritage Site. This town stands on a ridge of yellowish sandstone and is crowned by a fort which contains the palace and several ornate Jain temples.

The small, picturesque town of Jaisalmer evokes the magic and vibrancy of a desert. It’s straight out of an Arabian Nights fable. The hostile terrain notwithstanding the warmth and colour of people is simply overwhelming.

Jaisalmer Fort

J 1

Towering above the town of Jaisalmer, the imposing structure that is the Jaisalmer Fort is one of the great heritages of India. This magnificent structure was built in 1156 AD by the Bhatti Rajput ruler Rawal Jaisal. This fort has been the centerpiece of many battles and has much history associated with it. Its massive yellow sandstone walls are a tawny lion colour during the day, fading to honey-gold as the sun sets, thereby camouflaging the fort in the yellow desert. Hence, it is also known as the Sonar Quila or Golden Fort.

Unlike most forts in India, the Jaisalmer Fort is a living fort. There are shops, hotels and age old havelis (homes) inside the fort area where families have lived for generations. When you’re at the fort, be sure to visit the Raj Mahal (Royal palace), Laxminath temple, the four massive gateways that stand guard of the fort and the Merchant Havelis.

Other Attractions

Gadsisar Lake

Gadsisar Lake is one of the major tourist attractions of Jaisalmer. Contrary to the popular belief, it is not an oasis, but a water conservation tank made around 1400 A.D. by the then Maharaja of Jaisalmer, Maharwal Gadsi Singh. This marvelous piece of engineering once controlled water supply to the entire city!

If you are lucky enough to venture out in winters, you might get to see a variety of migratory birds. Also, the vast number of temples in the vicinity of the lake has earned this place the status of a pilgrimage spot.

Desert Cultural Center

This is a one-stop place to learn more about the rich cultural heritage of Jaisalmer. The place is well maintained and harbors rare coins and manuscript related to Jaisalmer history and the history of Rajasthan as a whole. This museum has some eye-catching collection of traditional Rajasthani textiles, utensils, weapons, musical instruments and fossils. One thing that is very popular among foreigners is ‘Karal’, the traditional opium mixing box.

J 2

Sam & Khuri Sand Dunes

If you want to experience the mystique and the aura of the Thar, the Sam and Khuri Sand Dunes are places that one must visit. Sam has a truly magnificent stretch of sweeping dunes, with sparse or no vegetation. The Khuri Sand Dunes are a bit less crowded and you can spot many houses of mud and straw decorated like the patterns of Persian carpets. And this experience would not be complete without traveling here on a camel! A camel safari in the sand dunes of Jaisalmer is an unforgettable experience. One can also be a part of the camel caravan at Jaisalmer and enter the heart of the Thar.

Jaisalmer also celebrates its desert culture with the action-packed Desert Festival in January or February each year.

Putting it all Together

With so much history around you, there is always going to be a disconnect of sorts if you reside at a truly urbane hotel or resort. Sure, all the modern amenities and conveniences are a must, but what about the architectural or culture style that Jaisalmer exudes?

Enter Club Mahindra. The resort is built on the lines of a haveli and exudes the royal aura of an arch-traditional space. The view from the haveli-resort is enchanting as it is situated near the Great Thar Dessert.

Located away from the city, the place offers much needed calm and serenity. Staying at Club Mahindra’s Jaisalmer resort mainly involves pampering one’s own self by just lazing around the resort, enjoying an open-sky barbeque dinner and listening to the artists playing folk music.

And that’s not all; Club Mahindra provides something truly exciting – vacation ownership. With as many as 12 membership options, you can choose the plans you’d like. You can enjoy a seven night and eight day vacation every year for twenty-five years. And with 39 other resorts in India and abroad just as awesome as this one, why wouldn’t you want to..?

This cozy town was once the summer resort of the erstwhile British Government in South India. Sprawling tea plantations, picture-book towns, winding lanes and holiday facilities make this a popular resort town.

The rolling hills around Munnar are carpeted in emerald-green tea plantations, contoured, clipped and sculpted like ornamental hedges. The low mountain scenery is magnificent – you’re often up above the clouds watching veils of mist clinging to the mountaintops.

Located between Munnar and Rajamala, Nyayamakad is a land of waterfalls. The waters cascade down a hill from a height of about 1600 meters, providing one with a breath taking view.

Munnar is also known to attract those seeking adventure. Paragliding over the valley is bound to provide one with that desired adrenaline rush. One can also trek to Anaimudi (South India’s highest peak) or Lock Heart Gap. Hikes originating at the confluence of three mountain streams are also popular.

Eravikulam National Park which is at a short distance from Munnar is an absolute must-visit. Declared as a sanctuary in 1975, this is home to the Nilgiri Tahr.
