Top 10s logo 

Lakshman Sagar is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Secret Gems.

Opened in 2011, Lakshman Sagar is a hidden gem of a hotel, located in a remote rural setting between Jaipur and Jodhpur.

Set up with a ‘Zero Kilometre’ concept, everything found in the 12 small cottages has been sourced within from the local vicinity. This original idea, alongside a variety of bespoke village-theme activities, allows guests to really experience numerous aspects of traditional Rajasthani village life.

Choose between a great selection of local experiences while staying in this hotel, from learning about milking techniques at the nearby dairy to visiting the village school, and having henna traditionally applied by local women. Guided nature walks and stargazing are arguably our favourite activities on offer here and mean that you make the most of the wonderful serene setting.

Each cottage faces the scenic lake and comes with a refreshing and private plunge pool; a perfect place to relax and enjoy the view while admiring the beautiful birds flitting about nearby. The interiors of the public areas and the cottages are done up in a brightly coloured quirky style, which manages to encapsulate both Rajasthani culture with a more modern boutique aesthetic. The overall effect is wonderfully ‘shabby-chic’ and breathes a lively yet cosy atmosphere.

Enjoy home-cooked meals, all made with organic locally-sourced ingredients, and be sure to take a swim in the innovative rock-face style swimming pool here, which is a sight to behold in itself. We recommend taking a dip as the sun is setting for an especially magical panoramic view over the hilly desert plains, while keeping an eye out for pretty peacocks and antelopes that can be seen dotted around. Or, enjoy the spectacular sunset with a cocktail in hand from the rooftop atop the Zanana tower - another huge plus of this striking property.

This property is ideal for those looking to unwind and relax in a beautiful and tranquil setting. Surrounded by nothing but untouched raw nature, we believe Lakshman Sagar is a great detox from the exhilarating but hectic cities close by and we guarantee that by the end of a stay here, you will be well-rested and in awe of rural India.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
