From Warrior Fort to Luxury Resort , Alila Fort Bishangarh

THE MAKING OF ALILA FORT BISHANGARH

FROM WARRIOR FORT TO LUXURY RESORT: REBUILDING THE PAST FOR THE FUTURE

 

Alila Fort

Alila means “Surprise” in Sanskrit, which suitably describes the refreshing character of this luxury resort, a bridge between the past and the future. The hallmark of Alila is the combination of innovative design and luxury in unique locations, set apart by an unprecedented level of private space, crafted artisan-ship, personalized hospitality, and bespoke journeys.

Perched on top of a granite hillock in the midst of a vast expanse of the Aravalli Range, surrounded by hills dotted with havelis, villages and temples, Alila Fort Bishangarh is the result of the adaptive reuse of a 230-year-old warrior fort into one of India’s most unique heritage properties.

Adaptive reuse offers a sustainable option for the reclamation of heritage sites, an inspiring way to preserve and revive an existing building by merging its traditional ideals with modern culture, usage, design techniques and ideas.

Built during Rajasthan’s royal era as an outpost guarding the kingdom of Jaipur (Amber) against invaders from the North, the fort at Bishangarh had long outlived its original purpose. Almost a decade ago, as the fort stood abandoned in a dilapidated condition, inhabited by thousands of bats and monkeys, the owners – a Rajput leader by birth and election and two successful entrepreneurs – together with Alila took a visionary decision to breathe new life into its reincarnation as a boutique resort, while maintaining its stark sanctity.

What followed was an extraordinary journey of transformation to keep this piece of tangible heritage alive, taking complete care to retain the original structure in its full integrity while reinventing it for the 21st century.

Immense challenges had to be overcome – including stabilising and strengthening the ruins, constructing a road up to the fort, finding circulation through 3m thick walls, and deciphering the unconventional puzzle of the organic structure, which featured not a single 90-degree wall.

Upper and outer wings were adapted to the original fortification to carve out 59 suites following the curved and sloping walls of the existing turrets. Rooms and restaurants have been made to fit around the original walls – 2 to 3 m-wide in many places. With no typical floor plan, there were 23 different room configurations in all, the precise details of which took some 1,800 hours to draw up. To add to that, 23 unique venues  have been created for meetings and celebratory events.

 

Stay tuned more on our visit to Alila Fort and the lovely experience there.

Project Doopti : Purpose is to Sustain

Uplifting people just by mere words is not enough, until they are backed by actions. Meet my dear friend, Cynthia Fernandes, an inspiration and motivational Social Entrepreneur.

Cynthia Fernandes | Social Entrepreneur & Cottage Industry Owner | Project Doopti

Cynthia has always been a quiet Samaritan to take up causes and initiatives which would look challenging for any one but not for this woman. Cynthia has lived in the Middle East for most of her life, where I had the privilege of meeting her through her social work of helping people get jobs through her job posts, women networking events and many more. When she moved back home to India, she saw the challenges faced by the low income and under privileged women in her neighboring village, a few kilometers from where she lives.
Where most people who look at such a need of upliftment for the under privileged , Cynthia backed her words of motivation with actions ! That is when Project Doopti took birth !

Women working on their orders

Doopti is a small cottage enterprise in Belgaum, where in they employ below poverty women and encourage them to make cotton quilts and at the same time earn a decent living for themselves. These quilts are personalised quilts as per the clients wish or requirements.
Cynthia started this cottage industry in 2015 with one lady, one sewing machine. And today She has 5+ ladies and 7 sewing machines. They manufacture handmade quilts, petbeds, table accessories, goody bags, curtains, bedspreads and pillows.
They have received quite a phenomenal response from friends who are using this opportunity to gift their loved ones as these unique quilts are not easily available in the open market. As we are in the winter season, this is the right time to act upon. As they are dependent on word of mouth and personal references, you can be part of this initiative and help her to spread the word. Your inquiries will be appreciated.
You can contact Mrs. Cynthia Fernandes, Social Entrepreneur and owner of the cottage industry who has been a helping Samaritan towards so many families for their basic survival through her cottage handicraft business
The products ordered are delivered for free within India as well as UAE.

The City with a purpose behind it’s vision

If you would have read my earlier blog about The Future City site visit then you would be able to make the connection to my conversation with Mr. Sharad Mishra (referring to him here as Sharad ji) Director of UKM Group – Trimurty Builders.

Trimurty Builders has a legacy of being in the business of building homes since the last 22 years and the amazing deep rooted values that have been taught by Mr. Udai Kant Mishra – Chairman of UKM group, to his three sons and their families shows in their work and commitment for making lives of others also happier.

The Future City site visit had left me with a nostalgic feeling of not wanting to leave, somewhere in the background I could hear the words, “wow, I am home”. I guess everyone does not feel connected or are able to put a finger at how they feel when they step into a new place. But I guess that is how I connect, it is the energy or urja of the place that makes me want to be there forever or just leave …. So much for being an archer ?

My curiosity grew even more after seeing the expansive area of the project and wondering what was the thought that made a family’s vision come into reality. I always look for a purpose, that is the sign of recognizing a visionary. And that is what Udai Kant ji is and I am sure it is a matter of pride for him and the family as to how the brothers are making his vision into a reality.

From Left to Right:

Visiting the Trimurty office at Jaipur, greeted by their team we went to meet Mr. Sharad Mishra. Our small chat and exchanging pleasantries, the conversation did become deep as to what and how the whole project was envisioned.

A very calm and composed Sharad ji, explains how the vision of The Future City started taking shape and their purpose being very clear was to accommodate those living in India and outside to own at least one piece of land.

“The reason for developing a plotting scheme like The Future City is the non-availability of organized land developers in this segment of business. The demand for land which we used to get from all over the world and often having prospects saying that though they don’t live in India, they would want to own at least one piece of land in India by which they feel connected to their roots. Many of them felt it a problem in doing that as they did not feel safe and secure about their investments along with the unfulfilled commitments.”

“That’s when we realized that there is a niche in the market and hence we conceptualized The Future City where the plot investment is not a big-ticket investment and affordable for those wanting to own at least one piece of land in their home country.”

“The Future City is safe in terms of its immunity from encroachment etc., and is surrounded by enough anchors of economic growth in future.”

With many other developments around the same area, The Future City does stand out due of its vision, magnanimous size and its committed development.

Being a person, who has always been a GameChanger, I was truly amazed with their thought process of standing out of the herd of development projects. Sharad ji proudly declares the change that they wish to bring in the community, “We want to build a community of home owners which is more responsible and sensible. Instead of spending their hard-earned money in other luxuries of life, they would have spent in making an investment in land which in turn makes them more stable in life and which will add value to their wealth and 360 degrees of happiness. The ease of payment that we are providing to the home-owners is making a very large community attracted towards investing in The Future City.”

If you are a nature and environment lover, then you will surely be able to connect to the vision of Trimurty’s commitment. “Trimurty as a company is committed to environment and in The Future City our focus is on water conservation and green cover in the scheme.”, explains Sharad ji.

So with good healthy living, sustainability covered and environment conservation as the commitment and driving force….. what else is left for you to take that one piece of land …. Return on investment!! Well, Trimurty Builders has got you covered there too!!

“It is my experience of real estate that any investment in land has always given a good return of approximately 18-19% per annum if the investment could grow for 7-10 yrs.” Says Sharad ji from Trimurty Builders.

Leaving after our conversation, it was nice to know in depth about a development in which making an investment would lead to living in a happier and sustainable environment… and of course the lovely nature by your side !
