Live Off The Grid: Luxury Camping at Lebua Lodge, Amer

Jaipur has always had a hold on me – the warm hospitality, grandeur feel, lip-smacking cuisine, and unmatched charm. And I felt blessed when we got a chance to visit the city together for the second time, so this time we decided to go a little offbeat and include different experiences in the itinerary.

One experience that most people hardly associate with holidaying in Jaipur is Glamping. Yes, there is a thing called glamping and it exists in Jaipur too. If you are planning on heading to Jaipur over a short weekend, you just have to book yourselves a stay at the Lebua Lodge Amer, for its exciting and luxurious camping experience.

Overview

All those seeking perfect glam camping experience in Jaipur must put Lebua Lodge high on their list. With striking futurist tents and canvas cubes against the showcase of rocky hills – Lebua Lodge assures a memorable experience.

It’s about 4½ hour drive away from Delhi and 5½ hour drive from Jodhpur. Travelers who desire something off the grid and yet remains truthful to the Indian roots, Lebua is just ideal for them.

Accommodation Highlights

  • Huge bay windows with a high roof as well as light filtering curtains.
  • Ideal for cycling, walking, gawking at peacocks on the boundary walls of the lodge.
  • Wake up to the most melodious sounds of the birds – something I crave for while staying in a metro city.
  • Utmost comfortable guaranteed with all modern amenities and facilities.
  • Minibar and tea coffee maker provided.
  • I fell in love with the bathroom – it was difficult to come out of the bathtub and get ready the next morning. 🙂 Oodles of luxury!
  • The outdoor area extending towards the luxury tent is gorgeous – just I was little scared in the night when a cat came to play over. And I fear cats since the day it bit me last year, I do not prefer to play with them anymore (grumpy me!). So, I got inside the luxury tent in night while Harsh preferred to stay outside.
  • Amber Fort and Nahargarh Fort were just about 10 minutes’ drive away from the lodge. Due to this motivation we went for Sound and Light Show at Amber in night.
  • You need to be a bit cautious when getting back in the night from the city to Lebua Lodge at Amer Jaipur as the 1km stretch leading to the lodge is nothing but dense forest and it can get a little overwhelming. So be prepared for that in advance.
  • We were able to book this resort for 2500INR | 38USD per night! YAY ! Otherwise the costs can shoot upto 5500INR | 82USD during the season time.

Checking into Lebua Lodge

Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly at the reception room with a welcome drink (apple juice). The entry gate was grand and so was the reception. Everything looks super quiet and magical the minute you step into Lebua Lodge at Amer Jaipur.

We couldn’t find many people around – it felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. We were handed out our keys immediately on arrival and subsequently escorted to the lodge.

What to Do: Absolutely Nothing… Or May be?

This one is for those travelers who want to take their time to enjoy where they are, sit back, relax, and take moments to appreciate life. There are a few activities organized for free by the luxury resort, which includes camel riding and cycling.

It was fun riding bicycles in the evening and interacting one-to-one with the camel, Babloo. Yes, you can see our pictures petting the camel. Of course we did not ride the camel as we do not support the activity. Be a responsible traveler!

You can also use your time to explore Jaipur and discover its various attractions the next day. Star gazing from the outdoor seats is perhaps most recommended to unwind from your busy lives.

      Hey Suma, thanks for your sweet compliment 🙂 .. Lebua is about half an hour drive from the main market. Its 8 minutes drive from Amer Fort. You can totally consider a stay here! 😉

    I would have never thought of camping as an accommodation option in Jaipur! I really like this idea. Were there any places to have bonfires? That’s my favorite part of camping, and I wouldn’t want to miss out!

    • Reply admin December 16, 2016 at 5:34 pm

      Hey Brianna, We found this option in Jaipur after a lot of research and were glad to find one! We loved it at Lebua. And no, there wasn’t an option for bonfires, though we love them too. But even without that, we quite enjoyed our stay there. 🙂

    These “tents” look gorgeous! Very luxurious indeed. What a beautiful experience to stay in one! Cycling would be a good way of getting around.

    • Reply admin December 16, 2016 at 5:36 pm

      Cycling was cherry on the cake. Then there was an option for camel ride too. A holiday here would be just an ideal option! 😉

    I’d love to do some glamping in India! The tents look more luxurious than most hotels and the surrounding scenery is breathtaking! It seems like the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. The pool is gorgeous too!
