When is it happening?
13th to 19th August, 2023
Where is it happening?
In a place of princely palaces, magnificent forts and age-old temples,
also known as the Blue City of India – Jodhpur. The city forms the very
soul of Rajasthan and is much like a magnet, attracting travellers from
all over to take a dip in its old-world charm. It is here that you can
travel back in time to the glorious days of yore as you will seek to relook
into your life’s past. You would be staying in a desert botanical resort
amidst the undiscovered side of Thar. The elegant resort makes for a haven
of tranquility that invites our participants to soak up the aura of a vintage
city and recharge their soul’s batteries while on a creative journey.
How to get there?
The property is a 2-hour drive from Jodhpur Airport (100 km), which is the
nearest airport to the destination. The Jodhpur Railway Station (97 km) is
approximately 2 hours away as well. From the airport or railway station, you
can avail the services of a cab or any other mode of transport according to
your convenience. Jodhpur in Rajasthan is a 9-hour drive from Delhi (558 km)
in case you wish to travel by road. It is connected to all the major cities
in Rajasthan. If you are having trouble arranging your last mile arrival at
the Retreat, do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
So, when do I get there and when do I leave?
Travelling to a distant town is a full-day task, particularly if you’re coming
from somewhere far. So, plan to arrive by late lunch on the 13th August. We
kickoff the retreat at 6 pm on the same day. Ease in, have dinner with your
co-attendees, speak with the facilitators and settle in for a good night’s sleep,
so we can start nice and early on the following day. The Retreat will be conducted
full day each from 14th to 18th August. You may plan to leave for your destination
after breakfast on the 19th.
How many participants will there be in all?
16 at the maximum. The idea is to create an intimate group of people who are serious
about their creative transformation and can be cheerleaders for each other’s creative
journey. We also ensure that we have a diverse and varied lot across creative domains
and experience levels, so that when the journeys intersect, there are enough experiences
and stories to take solace in.
What’s the accommodation like?
Located amidst the magnificent Thar, this property is India’s first desert botanical
resort. It is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life, thereby making for
the perfect place for you to unwind your souls.
The property boasts ample sit-outs and a private courtyard, so you can kick back and
relish an al fresco-style breakfast under the azure blue sky or mark off a wonderful
day under the glistening stars. The USP of this place is perhaps the resilient trees
and green shrubbery that sustain life against all odds. A common swimming pool at one
side of the property is inspired from the step wells or ‘baoris’ of Rajasthan, where
you can take a rejuvenating dip at any time of the day. The property features 10
spacious and homely villas.
The villas are designed in exposed brick façades that exude a rather rustic charm
and invite you to step in. Inside, it is elegantly furnished to ensure you have the most
comfortable stay. Each bedroom is appointed with a comfy double bed with side tables,
a wardrobe, coffee seating, and a wall-mounted mirror for your convenience. The walls
are draped with botanical art that adds further cheer to the spaces. The en suite
washrooms are tiled and modern.
There will be a total of 16 attendees with 2 facilitators at the Retreat.
How much does it cost?
INR 75,200 + government taxes (only double occupancy option available).
