V Resorts is a growing chain of boutique resorts in India with beautiful properties at excellent scenic locations. A professional company funded by reputed VCs, we pride ourselves as a highly passionate team to showcase the picturesque offbeat locales of India. We have carefully chosen our properties to give you the most important thing you and us wish, the VIEW. We have five resorts in Uttarakhand (Sattal, Ramgarh, Corbett, Pauri and Rajaji National Park), one in Himachal (Narkanda) and one in Rajasthan (Auwa - Pali district).
V Resorts Fort Auwa, stands tall in the rich soil of innocence, sacrifice, valour and reverence called Auwa, a quaint village in Pali district of Rajasthan. Untouched by the pace of modern times, here kids hum latest Hindi songs yet fly kites, women wear long ‘ghunghats’ and swing babies in cloth ‘palnas’, men make potteries to earn a living and villagers bow heads in reverence to greet the royal family. It’s not the Rajasthan you know, its offbeat, its forgotten Rajasthan. You may not find a BMW here, but you will get to see the vintage Buick. It’s a place where the relics of 1857 mutiny (first war of independence) are still preserved and the forgotten tale of extreme sacrifice for human freedom by the unsung heroes of the Satyagraha movement in Rajasthan (1643) are still recalled by the locals who take pride in it.
Walk through the old heritage fort with ancient temples, ruins and artifacts such as the parrot firing canon, tour the old meter gauge train and picnic in the sandy dunes by Phulad Dam…Lose yourself within the British Raj…Come, GET LOST with V Resorts Fort Auwa!
The Fort houses 18 rooms, not one similar to the next in décor and appeal. Even the striking blend of tradition with modernity in every room does not take away from the distinct features of each room. The colours used are taken from gracious nature and reflect the seasons and their hues. Every room has a garden or a veranda and as you gaze out in to the outdoors it almost seems like time has taken a breather. You can hear the calm and feel the unruffled air.
The common areas are replete with lush viridian lawns, dining area and an activity room. This room has a library, board games, cards and even a karaoke to test your singing abilities. Stock up on organic and fresh produce that are sold in the retail corner. The idea of being able to stretch out your legs and do nothing is tempting and V Resorts encourages you to be tempted! Invoke the blessings of the almighty and be part of the evening ‘aarti’ in the Fort temple.
Dining at V Resorts
A great holiday is incomplete without great food to compliment it. All the food we serve is grown and sourced locally – it is organic, fresh and healthy. From lip-smacking juices to jams and sauces the food is nourishing. The unpolished pulses and the vegetables are all cooked with herbs and spices that are grown in our herb garden. Our delicious café and bakery serve a delish range of breads, cupcakes and finger foods that are the quintessential accompaniments to beverages. Be a spectator to the antics of our chef who will prepare grilled items, in about 17 different kinds of marinades, right before you. We also have a lavish a-la carte menu should your taste buds crave some more delights. With such a large spread, we are sure you will overlook the fact that we do not have room service.
Located just 2hrs away from Jodhpur, Auwa is a quaint village in the Marwar Junction tehsil of Pali district in Rajasthan. This little village has witnessed many forgotten tales of valour and martyrdom whose relics are still preserved by the villagers who take pride in recalling the times gone by.
The village is known for siege of the Auwa fort by British forces in 1857 (1st war of independence also known as 1857 mutiny) when various Thakurs of Pali region under the stewardship of Thakur Kushal Singh of Auwa confronted the British. Auwa fort was surrounded by the British army and the conflict lasted many days. The fort and village still carry the scars of that siege. Captain Mason (the British Residency Officer at Jodhpur) was shot dead on the way to Auwa and hanged at the fort gate. Lesser known to the world, Auwa is also the land from where the first Satyagraha movement in Asia started. In 1643 the Chaarans (poet community of Marwar) staged a ‘dharna’ against despotism in Auwa and as a protest they collectively sacrificed their lives.
