About the hotel
One of the oldest plateau ranges of the world The Aravalis date back to the pre Indian sub continental collision. This range of Western mountains runs across Gujarat, Rajasthan, Haryana, ending in Delhi. Its northern end continues as isolated hills and rocky ridges into Delhi, NCR. It is here, near Faridabad, wherein lies the valley's sacred bastion Mangar Bani.
Drive out from the capital, and in about an hour, reach The Lalit Mangar. Surrounded by a fragile ecosystem in a captivating natural ambience, The Lalit Mangar is the first of its kind eco-friendly luxury property in the area. Using special rammed earth architecture, the hotel is meticulously designed with natural raw materials like earth chalk and gravel in layers.

The hotel has been designed as a continuously cascading village street working as per the natural contours of the site moving from courtyard to courtyard in an informal organic manner.
The informal nature of design ensures that no two parts of the entire hotel are alike, be it the courtyards, the room entries, the views and vistas from different parts of the property, the only common thread being the traditional rubble masonry of the building plinths all constructed using stone from the land, supporting the monolithic rammed earth wall above, each wall being unique in its ramming pattern, its shade and colour as a result of the individual person working on that particular wall and the soil mix as generated in that batch.
