Taj Aravali – A Contemporary Look in the City of Traditions | Studio Padmini Pandey | Udaipur
Have you ever been to the Taj Aravali in Udaipur? Well, it is a must-visit place on your trip to Udaipur. Udaipur is one of the popular tourist destinations and is well-known for its scenic locations, culture, history, and Rajput-era palaces. While it is called the “City of Lakes,” it is also a “City of Traditions.” In the city of traditions, Taj Aravali flaunts a contemporary style architecture design and captivates the attention of the visitors. The space was designed from head to toe by none other than Padmini Pandey and her able team.
During a conversation with Royale Impex, Padmini said “The client started off as a 3-star property, but it ended up being a 5-star property. The fact that they trusted me with such a huge project single handedly was a great feeling. Nothing matches the joy of an entire structure coming to life from scratch, and in this case, it would not just be about a single structure but an entire complex synergizing with all its elements.”
Let’s take a look at the specialties of this Taj’s luxury 5-star property in Udaipur.
Design of Taj Aravali
The design ethos of Taj Aravali is a perfect blend of contemporary designs and traditional Rajasthani influences. The sophisticated resort is built on an area of more than 27 acres of land and is based on a dramatic landscape of Mewar. The décor and interior designs of Taj Aravali are greatly inspired by the nomadic culture and Rajasthani architecture. Its ergonomic design is indeed a beautiful combination of contemporary and classic designs.
The resort not only imitates Rajasthan’s royal architecture but also follows a tent architecture theme that makes it stand out. As the Taj Aravali is surrounded by rugged Aravali Ranges on all sides, it is sure to offer you an authentic vibe and a regal feel. While the mountain ranges and weather conditions complement its exterior looks, the interiors can provide you with a contemporary vibe.
During conversation, Padmini said “The entire project has a lot of landscaping as it’s based on the Aravali hills and in a city, which is known for traditional architecture I decided to go contemporary with my design.”
