The gift of gratitude

Celebrating culture and community in India

The act of giving thanks enriches and elevates us. It has been proven that those who show their gratitude and share their light are more likely to be happy – because they are consciously open to the positive. It’s not a matter of personality, but of practice: when we choose to give gratitude, we receive happiness in return. The festive season gives us all a chance to offer the gift of our thanks, to cherish what we love, and to look to the light.

For Aman, the season is a time to celebrate and give back to the communities and natural environments that sustain us. As an Aman guest during the festive season, you are invited to make meaningful connections with local cultures, participate in vital conservation initiatives, and to end the year with thankfulness and positivity. Discover the myriad ways in which Aman destinations are giving thanks and championing their communities this year.

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

Indian cultural celebrations at Amanbagh, Rajasthan

Amanbagh

Over the festive season, the serene garden estate of Amanbagh sets out to immerse guests in the culture and heritage of Rajasthan and the Aravelli Hills, showcasing and celebrating the crafts and cuisine of the local villages. Learn the unique regional art of Lac bangle making at a pop-up artisan’s workshop in the grounds and discover how the natural resin can be heated and shaped to make vibrantly colourful jewellery. Guests can also explore the traditional Indian art form of rangoli, whereby intricate patterns are created from coloured rice, sand and other natural materials – typically at the entrances to homes – representing welcome and good fortune.

There will be opportunities to learn about the inextricably connected trinity of food, faith and medicine that have shaped Indian culture and society for millennia, over a cup of exquisitely spiced chai, and the chance to try Rajasthan’s own ‘sport of kings’: camel polo. On 31 December, guests are invited to join the Amanbagh team in celebrating the arrival of the new year with a traditional Indian fair, featuring fortune tellers, fire dancers and traditional Manganiyar singers – and a specially prepared seven-course festive dinner.

Jeep safari in Rantambore National Park

Aman-i-khas

Amid the wild beauty of Ranthambore, the safari camp of Aman-i-Khas celebrate the festive season by renewing its connection to the wildlife, local communities and natural landscapes that surround it. As well as enjoying a calendar of celebratory dinners and special events featuring local musicians playing traditional Indian instruments, guests are invited to join the Aman team in the mission to combat local deforestation by planting trees in and around the camp. More than 1,000 trees have been planted in the last four years. Younger guests can also participate in the resort’s conversation programme, learning about how plaster-cast footprints (pugmarks) are traditionally used to track the movement of individual tigers and other large carnivores through the camp grounds.

Minutes from Aman-I-Khas, Maa Ashapura Farm is home to a herd of Marwari horses. Known for their courage, loyalty and distinctive inward-curving ears, the rare heritage breed is local to the Jodhpur region. Aman-I-Khas guests can learn about and ride these remarkable animals with farm founder Vikram Singh Chauhan, as well as discovering the folklore and culture that have defined the region for centuries. There is also a chance to visit the women’s craft collective, Dastakar, where Aman-i-Khas sources numerous clothes, toys and other gifts. The group includes more than 300 female artisans and has trained thousands more – helping to preserve the craft traditions of Rajasthan while supporting the livelihoods of the region’s women today.
