BOOK

It was the dream of a keen naturalist to share the peace, serenity and nature of this piece of land in Tehla, Rajasthan, with others, and the Utsav Camp Sariska is the realization of this dream. More than 20years in the making, work started on Utsav Camp in 2011 with the purchase of the land and the appointment of Studio Mestry to design the architecture, interiors and exteriors. The brief was clear, to ‘bring the outdoors indoors’, and they have clearly achieved this at Utsav Camp Sariska. The location is near the renowned boulders of Tehla, a piece of land that is 375,000 sq/ft or 3.5 hectares with views of the Aravalli Hills and the surrounding wilderness. The sense is one of living within a sanctuary, side by side with nature, and the stay experience is all the more luxurious for it. The earthy palette used to colour the hotel is easy on the eye, restful, and blends beautifully with the surrounding natural beauty. The owner’s love and respect for nature ensured that sustainability was a key tenet of the design and build and remains just as important today within the running of the Utsav Camp. Natural materials were used as much as possible in the construction, with local wood, stone and bamboo the keynotes of each building.

Your Host and The Team


“The Utsav Camp Sariska was founded by Luv Shekhawat and born from a love of the natural word and a lot of devotion and determination. A trained naturalist who also has more than 20 years’ experience in hospitality management, Luv fell in love with the boulders of Tehla and knew he wanted to create a space here to share the deep sense of peace he felt when visiting this spot with others. Then in 2011 the opportunity arose to buy the land that Utsav Camp sits on today. He envisaged a hotel where people could get off grid, escape the modern world, find peace and rejuvenate their souls with the healing power of nature. Over a period of 4 years, Luv, guidd by his grandfather, poured his heart and soul into the land, planting it with all kinds of trees and plants. And today, perhaps because of his persistence, or perhaps the blessings of the boulders, or most likely both, Utsav Camp Sariska shares with guests an immersive experience, one in which nature soothes your soul.”


Utsav Camp is the Best Place to Stay when Planning a Sariska Safari

The Utsav Camp is the ideal base when planning a Sariska safari. The hotel has an unbeatable location, set within 3.5 hectares of unspoiled wilderness and natural beauty, just 15minutes from the Sariska Tiger Reserve. Stay at the Utsav Camp, and between safaris in the Sariska Tiger Reserve, relax, unwind and enjoy the home comforts, service, tranquility and natural surroundings of your home from home in Tehla, Rajasthan. On safari in Sariska you will have the chance to see wonderful wildlife in their natural habitat. The Sariska Tiger Reserve is home to 28 Bengal tigers along with leopards, striped hyena, honey badgers, sloth bears, deer, wild boar, macaque and langurs to name a few. The wonderfully forested range is also home to at least 220 species of birds including serpent eagles, Indian eagle-owls and golden backed woodpeckers. Birdlife surrounds guests at Utsav Camp too. The ground around the hotel has been left natural, a true habitat, wildlife as undisturbed as possible, so birdsong is the symphony of every day at Utsav Camp. The owner, being a keen naturalist, has made every effort to blend and harmonize his hotel with the surrounding nature, to work with and not against the environment, exemplifying the design brief of bringing the outdoors indoors. More than 85% of the team at Utsav Camp has been employed from the local community, sustainably supporting and bridging with the local economy and also enhancing the stay experience as the staff are able to share their local knowledge on culture, traditions and the surrounding flora and fauna with guests. From safaris at the Sariska Tiger Reserve to exploring the surroundings of the Utsav Camp, guests are encouraged to reconnect with nature, to blissfully disconnect from our typically noisy modern lives, and to let the healing power of the natural world revive and rejuvenate.



“The Utsav Camp in Tehla redefines luxury. Set with views of the Aravalli Hills and close to the Sariska Tiger Reserve, the 20 room Utsav Camp is a dream realized by a keen naturalist to share his favourite piece of Rajasthan with guests and to immerse them within nature. Luxury here is in the beautiful moments of peace and serenity, going off grid and disconnecting from the pressures of the modern world, the slow living, the symphony of birdsong by day and the star-studded nights provided by breathtaking views of the Milky Way at night all the while ensconced within Utsav Camp’s warm, attentive and professional hospitality.”
Kim, the discoverer.



No Compromise on Comfort in a Stay at Utsav Camp Tehla

Building sustainably and sensitively has not resulted in a compromise of comfort for guests at Utsav Camp Tehla. Guest comfort is taken just as seriously as sustainability and the hotel’s impact on the locality and environment. Dining at Utsav Camp’s restaurant, Forest Lounge, is based on the philosophies of mindful consumption and the zero-mile approach for produce and resource sourcing. The camp employing the majority of its staff from the local community makes managing a productive organic garden within the hotel’s grounds relatively easy, with the local knowledge supporting good yields of vegetables and herbs all year round. The chef and kitchen team at Utsav Camp create menus and dishes from Indian, Rajasthani and International cuisines based on the freshest locally grown seasonal ingredients, ensuring tasty and heathy dining for guests whatever time of year they visit. The hotel team’s trained naturalists are on hand to take guests out to learn about and observe the local wildlife and birdlife. Utsav Camp also offers a variety of excursions and experiences to explore local ancient temples, guided treks in the wilderness, safaris to Sariska Tiger Reserve, wildlife tracking and bird watching to name a few. The Utsav Camp also features a wellness spa, an outdoor rooftop pool that enjoys mountain views, a well-stocked library, a mix of carefully placed lounge and seating spaces to enjoy the best views around the hotel or for private dining moments, and an outdoor yoga and meditation space. The 20 rooms at the Utsav Camp are set within 3 room types, the Swiss Tents, the Stone Cabins and the Forest Bungalows. All of the rooms are placed to enjoy the best views of the surrounding natural beauty. Spacious, featuring comfy beds, private en-suite bathrooms, big windows, air conditioning and delightful sit-outs, comfort, privacy and serenity is assured in all of the room types.
