Delhi’s secret countryside getaway to connect with nature: Rumi Farms review

Stepping into the tranquil embrace of RUMI Farms is like discovering a hidden gem in the heart of nature, a sanctuary where the soul finds solace and the mind discovers new horizons. From the moment I entered this idyllic haven near Sohna, Gurugram, I was enchanted by the promise of a lavish farm stay. A haven for self-discovery, creativity, and holistic well-being, the picturesque landscape is a dream come true for any nature lover.

Take a look around:

The accommodations at Rumi Farms are nothing short of luxurious, with contemporary amenities seamlessly blending with the natural surroundings. The well-appointed kitchenette, opulent living room, and balcony/terrace provided the perfect backdrop for relaxation in the crisp outdoor air. The property’s 3.5 comfortable bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms ensured a seamless balance of privacy and communal spaces, accommodating up to 6-7 guests with ease. For those seeking a gastronomic adventure, the option to hire a gourmet chef added a personalized touch, allowing us to savor our favorite meals. At the 1.2-acre farm, we were welcomed by Amitabh Reu’s soulful renditions of Kishore Kumar and a wonderful session on sound healing by Puoja Kapur.

Rumi Farms is designed to be a sanctuary for trainers and participants alike, creating a space where meaningful insights and transformative experiences can flourish. Conceptualized by Gautam Dutta, Co-CEO of PVR INOX Ltd and owner of Rumi Farms, the farm house retreat is a a refuge, an escape into the embrace of the natural world where one seeks solitude for introspection or the company of like-minded individuals. Dutta mentions, “Our daily lives are exhausting and take a lot out of us and we start craving for escapism to unwind and recharge. We are thrilled to unveil this haven of comfort where one can rejuvenate and carry back memories with them. Each element and object in our property has been thoughtfully selected by us to emanate warmth and elevate one’s mood.

Suparna Bhalla, Principal Architect of Abaxial who designed the property, informs, “The design philosophy at Abaxial emerges from ongoing conversations, and we actively seek projects that foster the infusion and flourishing of art, craft, culture and science. In the design of RUMI Farms, we sought to create a seamless dialogue between architecture and the environment, where every structure becomes a silent storyteller of the surroundings where nature is not just a backdrop but is the very essence that shapes and defines the serenity. In crafting this weekend destination resort, our architectural approach was to create a harmonious dance between nature and luxury—a symphony of design that invites guests to escape the ordinary and immerse themselves where every detail tells a story of serenity and sophistication.”
