Taj Hotels to open The Gateway Resort Pushkar Bypass Ajmer
AJMER -- Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces has announced the opening of The Gateway Resort Pushkar Bypass Ajmer. The 81-room and suite resort hotel is built in the Rajasthani royal style, complete with beautiful gardens, and offers a tranquil oasis for leisure and business travellers in the heart of the Aravalli Mountains to the north of the city.
The hotel's architecture and design is inspired by the culture and history of Rajasthan; its regal design in typical Rajasthani pink sandstone features private balconies with sit outs and jhoolas (swings) in every room. Inside, Bani Thani art—the local style that has its origins in nearby Kishangarh—provides a window into the area's cultural past while live performances of Langa folk singers bring Rajasthan to life for guests.
From the inviting cool waters of the swimming pool, sunk into the expansive courtyard, guests can drink in the stunning views to the mountains beyond or de-stress in the calming Spa with massage therapies. In-room yoga facilities mean that guests can keep on top of their fitness regime whether on business or leisure.
For those on a business schedule, the hotel offers three well-appointed conference and meeting rooms, flexible for diverse event requirements with capacities between 40 and 500 people. The 5000 sq. ft. of banqueting spaces, indoor and outdoor, and its strategic location between Ajmer and Pushkar make the hotel a perfect choice for corporate off-sites, conferences and weddings alike.
A visit to Rajasthan would not be complete without sampling the authentic regional home-style delicacies the state is famous for. At the all-day dining restaurant Aravali guests can indulge in specialties including Lal Maas, Dal Baati Churma, Ghewar, Bajre ki Khichdi, Rajasthani Pulao and Gatte ki Sabzi. The Gateway Active Foods menu provides those guests looking for healthier options a tasty but wholesome sample of Rajasthani fare.
Its convenient location offers excellent links for those looking to discover this corner of Rajasthan, whether on the spiritual trail of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer or the Hindu pilgrimage sites of Pushkar, one of India's oldest cities and the 'rose garden' of Rajasthan. Each year in November, Pushkar comes to life for the world's largest camel fair—Pushkar ka Mela—a major tourist attraction and truly a sight to behold.
The Gateway Resort Pushkar Bypass Ajmer is 15km from Ajmer railway station and 140km from Jaipur airport. Pushkar and its attractions are 11km from the resort by road.
