At SUJÁN, we pride ourselves on sharing magical settings and celebrating festivals and cultural events with our guests from around the world. As Christmas is just around the corner the teams across our properties are well underway with their Christmas preparations!
This year, we are incredibly excited to celebrate our first Christmas at Rajmahal Palace, Jaipur. A home that is steeped in history and heritage we are so excited to be there for our first festive season! A magnificent, giant Christmas tree adorns the great hall leading up the marble staircase and the presents are all under the tree.
Our new chef Rajiv is refining his recipes for a 6 course special Christmas eve menu and the cocktail shakers are at the ready! The bakers have been hard at work creating an unforgettable ginger bread house- Christmas is in the air! For the lucky ones spending Christmas with us here, there will be lots of other surprises along the way. Mixing the traditional Christmas with the flavours of culture here in Rajasthan, it really will be a Christmas to remember!
Over at the camps, guests will find similar festivities though each property has its own special traditions of celebrating. Log fires, lanterns lit, Christmas eve under a star lit sky! Over at The Serai, our desert retreat guests have been busy taking part in the fruit ceremony as part as the Christmas cake preparations, recreating a tradition and recipe from Jaisalmer that has been happening for over 4 centuries. A gingerbread house finds its way to your plate at tea time too!
Stockings filled with surprises in your tents, mulled wine, and hot Christmas porridge to start your morning safari!
If you find yourself at Sher Bagh this Christmas season, guests are invited to join a candle-lit, beautifully decorated dinner on the farm, recreating the atmosphere of celebrating with close friends and family. With lots of delicious roasted vegetables from the gardens, and other local recipes, there will be a feast to remember!
Whichever property you are at, we will ensure that Christmas Day is one to remember. At SUJÁN we share unique and memorable experiences, whether you spend the day in the spa at Rajmahal Palace, head off into the jungle in search of the tiger at Sher Bagh, go on a big Christmas walk through the villages of JAWAI or head off on camels across the desert at The Serai, it will surely be a special one!
From all of us at SUJÁN we wish you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful New Year!
