Celebrating Friendship – Tree of Life Style

In our fast-paced world and one which sees rapidly changing lifestyles, attitudes and people – our relationships are also victim of the change. And sometimes it’s good. Mostly it isn’t.

Your relationships are by what a lot of people will evaluate you. Personally and professionally, too.  It’s psychological – because we are incredibly quick to judge people on the basis of appearances.

Since we live in times that are now incredibly me-centric, a lot of us are more about what we aren’t getting out of life. And that includes our relationships.  We believe there’s nothing really wrong with wanting something and having it. After all – we can give more of ourselves if we are content with what we have, right ? But the chances of making that happen increase exponentially when we make the effort and begin the giving process ourselves rather than waiting for the other person to do so.

So here’s what we think you could do to make your most important relationship – your happiest and most meaningful one. With a bit of help from us.

13531870_1127243767332162_228221248_nIt all comes down to being each other’s best friends. And you needn’t have only one best friend – there could be others too. A network or a support system of good friends who play different roles and come in to complete different parts of you and your life are a great way to stay sane. A spouse or a partner may be no less. Or even be first among equals.

One way to do it is to list out the qualities you’d want in an ideal friend. Nothing is too small or trivial to not be on that list – if it matters to you.

Next up – become that person ! Psychologist John Gottman has spent years researching what makes relationships flourish or fall apart. He found that lasting relationships come down to friendship. Couples who stay together make a conscious effort to connect, share interests, and meet their spouse’s emotional needs. So if you feel you or your partner need a break – get away to the Tree of Life to just be yourselves.  That’s a great setting to keep friendships in the pink of health.

Spend quality time away from commitments and connectivity !  Score our Pool Villas at the Tree of Life, Jaipur for the ultimate in personal spaces. Our personalised cuisine on offer – will make fine-dining a memorable co-created experience between you and our MasterChef with his talented team.

We’re also a great place for groups of friends to meet and re-live the most significant times of their lives. With just 13 villas spread out over 7 acres of space in Jaipur – it’s a great place to host intimate reunions, celebrate anniversaries or any day that matters. And create a lifetime of memories.

13745146_1403274473032814_329483544_nIrrespective of how long it takes to achieve it – let’s not forget – Friendships are like gardens; they must be cultivated and invested in. The key is to be consistent and persistent—without expectations. It’s amazing what can happen when we assume the best, give our best and and stay meaningfully engaged with those who matter. After all – our world is a reflection of who we are and what we do. That’s physics and not some mumbo-jumbo !

So if you believe in that a solid friendship is the foundation of everything – head over to the Tree of Life. Celebrate Friendship with us this coming Friendship Day that falls on August 7th, 2016.

Bring back Romance at the Tree of Life

Relationships take a lot of working on – if they matter to us. Especially in the early days when we’re trying to make things happen. So all the hard work is a breeze. It’s fun. It’s amazing and we’re actually investing in ourselves. Nothing else matters.
Once you live together – and after a while, the mundane rears its head. The beautiful moments aren’t beautiful anymore. There are bills to pay, work to do, leaky faucets, crying babies, difficult parents, career challenges with hardly any scope for “ us ” time. You may even feel that you aren’t important to each other. But deep down you know that’s not true, it’s just that the stress of life has become overwhelming. And if you want your relationship to go back to where it began – or at least to capture some of that magic again, read on !

It’s actually quite simple. All one needs to do is to clear the clutter surrounding a relationship and get back to making that effort to fit love and caring into your schedules ! Treat each other like you did when you were dating. And voila ! You’ll find the magic again ! With a little help from the Tree of Life – here’s what you can do to make things the way they were !

Why Monsoon Holidays Are Better !

The Monsoons are on their way. And this is really the best time to head out for the holiday you’ve been promising yourself.

After all – it feels great heading out when the rest of the world is done and dusted with their holidays and back to their grind.

It’s also the time when places empty out. So you don’t run the risk of bumping into the world when all you wanted was to get away from it in the first place !

Serene surroundingsAnd let’s face it – the monsoon that’s away from the urban chaos and muck is the season that one must savour. It’s a different world – much like the ones we would experience in our childhood. With clean, lush surroundings, puddles that one can jump in, breeze that cools the soul and skies that promise heaven.  And you can even recreate your favourite monsoon memory – floating paper boats or serenading your partner Bollywood style – the choice is yours !

The monsoon in India is believed to cleanse and regenerate the earth and its people. It is also key to India’s agriculture sector, enabling the growth of crops and driving stock markets ! And apart from bringing down temperatures, the monsoon also lowers room rates for travelers, turning India into a great off-season destination.

16The Tree of Life is transformed and beautifully so by the monsoon. Imagine yourself playing Lord of the Manor at the Tree of Life Grand Oak Manor, Binsar at our fabulous perch above the valley and yet right in the middle of the Binsat Wildlife Sanctuary, with heritage  rooms, personalised signature cuisine and our award winning service ! Get away from it all – while the resort is still open for the season.

Infinity Pool at nightAnd what can one say about our fabulous Tree of Life Jaipur ? With just 13 villas in  a lush, green valley in the middle of the Aravalis – create your own personal space to experience the joy of this monsoon. Where else can you swim in your own personal pool as it pours ? Or indulge in spa treatments right in your villa itself – either indoor or outdoor with the monsoon breeze for company. If you enjoy getting wet – then trek in the surrounding hills or go say hello to the elephants in the nearby village. And of course – our MasterChef in residence will whip up whatever your heart desires – all served by our staff that has won us accolades for their service – year after year.

Monsoon time is now holiday time. At the Tree of Life !
