Mahua Vann Resorts
The Mahua Vann Resort is spread
in an area of thick forest and shrubs with a large seasonal river on one
side and a smaller one on the other side of the property. Both these
converge at the Sangam point, which has a large sandy patch and many
boulders strewn across. The resort is configured as a tribal village and the
cottage lay out gives a feel of privacy to each cottage with a view of
either of the two water bodies. The walk along the sandy bank of the bigger
nallah is more than one kilometer long. The resorts lay out and design is in
an eco friendly and vernacular style with the use of local building
materials and practices. The central areas and cottages blend with the
abundance of Mahua and other trees in a non intrusive and spatial fashion.
Emphasis on a sense of space as a perfect setting to savor nature for peace,
tranquility and reflection is done by design.
Guest accommodation comprises of
12 spacious suites with 15 rooms to give the feel of contemporary bungalows
nestled amongst thick foliage. The colonial louvered doors and windows with
stained glass and the art deco furniture transforms the guest in nostalgia
of yesteryear bungalows.
The spacious suites with inter
linked and comfortable vanity space, bath, open shower areas and the wooden
deck with splendid view of the river and the forest can be very enchanting.
The open air showers are a distinctive feature with element of fun and
romance. The Palash deluxe suites provide Machans as a covered roof top as
