Paintings by M. Sivanesan and SK Mani adorn the walls, enhancing the earthy ambience of Pushkar Resorts.

    With great emphasis on local influences, the raw materials have been sourced from the areas nearby to ensure that the local flavor is captured. To elaborate, the stone products are from Kishangarh, while the Wadi bar, decorated with nagadas and saddles recreates the essence of Rajput grandeur of the neighboring erstwhile estates.
