Taj Pashan Garh • PannaPashan Garh, Panna comprises a cluster of stone cottages huddled atop a small hill, with magnificent views over the forest and a large nearby waterhole, which has been host to numerous tiger and resident antelope sightings.
Surrounded by 190 acres of private jungle wilderness, Pashan Garh draws inspiration from the dry-packed stone houses of north-central India. With breathtaking views over the dense forest, as well as a nearby waterhole, the stone cottages are approached by large flagstones. Inside, dry packed stone walls and airy architecture create the impression of a summer pavilion. Accents of ebony, chocolate and white combine with a dramatic central shower in the bathroom to create a clean, strong texture. A vast stone veranda with a comfortable day bed provides shelter from the heat of the day. Delicious Indian fare, prepared by expert chefs, is discreetly delivered using the unobtrusive butler hatches.
