Adding an interesting facet to Rajasthan's palatial history, the Kumbhalgarh region and fort has its unique story and narration. The place has its own character, which can be easily enjoyed by stationing yourself at the well equipped Club Mahindra resort at Kumbhalgarh.
It you are thinking of a weekend breakout of Mumbai, Delhi, Bhopal or any other place easily accessible to Udaipur then it is worth heading towards the historic city of Kumbhalgarh which is around 90 kilometres away for Udaipur airport. Mahindra Holidays and Resorts India has placed their flag firmly in the region by offering its members a well defined property loaded with activities both indoors and outdoors. The drive from the airport to the resort itself is truly scenic. The entire panorama and landscape offers a unique site of the Aravallis which engulfs you from all sides. This well explains the ancient history of the region that speaks of courage, valour and honour. The entire region looks like a well guarded secret and the geographic positioning of the place adds to its character. The drive also reveals a new colour palette of Rajasthan that is visibly green rather than the predictable earthy brown that is synonymous with the state. To add to the experience, Club Mahindra resort's driver who drove me to the property was a local and he provided me with some interesting stories and folklore associated with the place. On route we passed through the historic region of Haldighati, which proudly reflects the valour and courage of the famous warrior Maharana Pratap and his equally famous house Chetak. Those who are interested in stories of bravery, loyalty and courage of the bygone era, this place is a must visit on the way to Club Mahindra Kumbhalgarh resort. The Journey truly has some interesting sites and sounds in the offing to explore.
After approximately a two hour drive, we reached the resort, a structure and architecture that is a reflection of Rajasthani art and style. The property is spread over an area of approximately two acres which houses 68 rooms and eight tents. The Club Mahindra Kumbhalgarh resort was a greenfield project, which was developed in line with the Club Mahindra philosophy of opening up regions for hospitality and tourism that are reasonably off-beat and unexplored, while keeping the commercials and profitability in mind. After a traditional welcome, I was ushered into a lobby area
