The Kutputli Room
The Kutputli Room is spacious and airy. It is coloured in
pleasant sandy tones that are easy on the eye, and simply
decorated with slightly scary Gavri puppets (kutputlis),
representing the Gavri Festival. This is a Bhil tribal
celebration during and just after the Monsoon season and is
peculiar to this area. However the centrepiece of this room is a
vintage Indian skirt; heavily embroidered with gold thread and
embedded with semi-precious stones. The skirt is fanned out on
the wall above the bed head.
The temperature of the room, thanks to cavity walling is very
moderate - cool in the summer and arm in the winter, but an air
cooler is fitted if additional cooling is required.
The Kutputli Room has a comfortably-sized bathroom with a
screened-off shower area - the bathroom is accessed through a
dressing room that is fitted with cupboards and drawers.
The bed can be a king-sized double, or can be split to make twin
beds. There is plenty of space in case an extra bed is required.
The bedroom has a little balcony that can take a table and a
couple of seats but has wonderful panoramic views that sweep
over the fields and hills to the west. This is a good room for
long-stay guests as it is ultra-peaceful and also has a large
amount of storage space.
