I've never thought of Giorgio Armani as a camping kind of guy.
Just never pictured him sitting around a campfire with a bunch of guys
in plaid flannel shirts .. .. .. . drinking a Budweiser and eating hot dogs.
I can easily see him here . . . Aman i Khas, a wilderness camp perched
on the outskirts of Rathambore National Park : Rajasthan, India.
Aman Resorts is a group of superb small hotels (usually around 20 rooms each)
whose focus is luxurious simplicity in extraordinary locations.
You'll find them in places like Indonesia, Bali, India & Morocco.
Their founder, Adrian Zecha, is also the very talented designer.
This group of 10 tents sits along a riverside and also encompasses
a lounge tent, a dining tent and a spa tent.
(aren't you relieved to know you'll be able to book
a massage after a day of photo safari?)
Not that you'll be roughing it ... . at ALL !
It just feels so very . . .... Armani Does Karen Blixen.
Lots of camp style folding chairs / desks and a perfect blend of caramel
leather with linens and crisp white cottons.
( I wonder if there's an Ironing Tent )
This giant tub would be a luxury in any home or hotel.
I love the mix.
The total incongruity of such a refined atmosphere in the midst
of the wilderness. Somehow, it seems to be a nice fit.
