Akansha Pandey | Ranthambore
The Women Empowerment Committee of Association of Domestic Tour Operators of India (ADTOI) in support with Hospitality & Marketing (H&M) Services recently organised the maiden edition of Womenonly Familiarisation (FAM) trip to Juna Mahal, Ranthambhore. Apart from two hosts from H&M Services and media delegates, the group comprised 16 female decision-makers and few senior staff from leading travel companies who explored this new 22-key boutique hotel and the old world charm of the destination.



Situated on the border of the Thar Desert, Ranthambore is surrounded by the Vindhya Hills and the Aravali Hills and can be aptly termed as a photographer’s delight. Once the erstwhile hunting grounds of the Maharaja of Jaipur until 1955, with the emergence of Project Tiger, Ranthambore’s park was declared a national park and listed among its protected reserves in 1980. The best season to visit is October to March and needless to say if one is coming down in the off season, cotton clothes or sports casuals is a must-pack.

Juna Mahal, Ranthambore debuted in October last year and capitalising on its warm hospitality and unique architecture is giving a tough fight to the already existing hotels in the district. Placed 15 km from the Sawai Madhopur railway station (30 mins approx) and 180 km from Jaipur Airport (3 hrs approx), the property is strategically located in the city outskirts and just minutes away from the must-see Ranthambore National Park.

ADTOI Women Empowerment Committee
Under the leadership of Reena Chopra, EC Member and Chairperson, ADTOI Women Empowerment Committee, this committee has been boosting the role and say of females in General House Meetings Since last association elections, the female member (from pan India) count has further strengthened. Post the success of Self Defence Workshop, Pranic Self Healing Session and Twin Heart Meditation workshop organised by the committee, going forward Chopra is planning to hold day-events such as cookery workshop and bird-watching for the female members.



As the palatial space is made up of old elements of limestone, local stone work, recycled material, etc., the property is rightly called Juna (Old) Mahal. Currently it houses 22 spacious and well-appointed rooms, an F&B outlet and a spectacular pool. By the year end, the Owner – CV Singh is eyeing to launch 20 new rooms, spa, coffee shop and a bar in a phased manner. The open space at the property is already attracting prewedding photography business.



Geeta Maheshwari, Director, H&M Services who is handling the sales, marketing and reservations for the property is happy with the response Juna Mahal has received so far with good inbound business being finalised to the hotel. Simultaneously, she is leaving no stone unturned to represent the property at trade fairs, in trade and consumer media, and among the travel trade. She has recently signed the brochures for inbound from UK and USA and plans to conduct more FAMs to the hotel.

Explore Nature Ranthambore lead by Marketing Manager, Girish Arora assisted in ground handling with jungle safari, sightseeing, temple visit, guide and pick/drop.
