Simple, stylish lodges in India
Itmenaan can variously be defined to mean ‘relaxation’, ‘at ease’, ‘at peace’. Indeed, this is what we intend to offer to our guests staying at Itmenaan Lodges. At Itmenaan Lodges we believe ‘Luxury’ is not only about expensive interiors, private pool villas and butler service, uniqueness of an experience, which is not commonly available, is the new ‘luxury’. Exclusivity of an experience is the new style statement for the sophisticated traveller. Simple is new ‘stylish’.
Providing sophisticated lodging facilities and stimulating experiences that give a traveller the touch and feel of the local surroundings is what we hope to provide. We intend to offer lodging facilities with an acute sensitivity for the area’s environment, animal habitats, people and culture. Our lodges may be in areas of outstanding natural beauty or in rural hinterland or in utter wilderness or crowded downtown area of an old world town or deep inside a wildlife park. Essentially each of the Itmenaan lodge will be marked by:
Great food and discreet service
Food is a serious matter – excellent food and great drinks are what holidays are made of. Extremely high levels of efficient but unobtrusive service customised to the desires of individual guests.
Each lodge has to be sensitive not just to the physical but also the cultural environment.
Use of water and energy efficient equipment
Hiring of majority of team members from the local community
Using indigenous materials and craftsmen
Procuring fresh produce directly from the local farmers
