Water Habitat Retreat: A Fascinating Treat in the Sun City.


The Marwar desert region in western Rajasthan is an absolutely majestic place to visit. It is a place of extremes- from the dry sandy Thar Desert climate, to the colorful images of its people, dances, and songs. But no conversation about Marwar is complete without the unspoken question of water access. In the desert your question will be answered; you will see the ‘Paniharan’, women walking long distances in the heat with a pot on top of their head.

The Water Habitat Retreat is an exemplary rainwater oasis within this same desert climate. Nestled in between the Aravalli range of hills, just outside ofJodhpur, it is both closely in touch with nature and entirely self sufficient of its water needs. The retreat, part of a recently renovated area of theRoyalBijolaiSummerPalace, has fresh water available throughout the year due to an ingenious water-conscious design.  You will find the surrounding landscape, with its bold but not obscuring hills, a peaceful and pure match to the Water Retreat. Nearby the Retreat liesKayalanaLake, a body of water that quenchesJodhpurCity’s thirst, and is a beautiful hotspot for leisurely boat rides and couples. The Palace design is sure to amaze you, as it exhibits the meticulous planning of the old rulers and a bygone era when people knew they live or die by proper rainwater management. PREMIUM SUITE: Our elegant Premium Suite includes a view of both the Aravalli hills, and theBijolaiLake. Here you will find a sitting & dining space, bedroom, independent dressing room, and bathroom. 593 square feet are yours.
