Updated: Jan 27

Evolve Back Resorts by Earthitects

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hampi is synonymous with the splendour of the once glorious Vijayanagara Empire. At Evolve Back, Hampi, they have recreated this splendour by adopting the design sensibilities prevalent and typical of that era.

Our uncompromising passion towards ‘Understated Elegance’ and ‘Attention to Detail’ drove us towards perfecting the Architectural Experience of the Vijayanagara Empire. Earthitects’ unwillingness to compromise on this ‘Perfection’ in the crafting of every space, facilitated the most authentic re-creation of the design sensibilities prevalent during this renowned era. Throughout the design process, we were awed by the courtly style of architecture, thus adopting the fort-like entrance, stone-paved boulevards and arched openings in our design. These elements mirror the Indo-Islamic style of the bygone but glorious era of the Vijayanagara Empire, paying homage to its visionaries, builders and architects!


Jal Mahal Gazebo


A Royal View from a Private Viewing Deck Modeled after the Ancient Zenana Enclosure The Zenana Enclosure was a private royal enclosure reserved for the Vijayanagara Empire's royal ladies. The 'Jal Mahal,' inspired by the 'Water Palace' within the Zenana Enclosure, is intended to reflect royalty at its finest. The palatial deck with a 'Mantapa' overlooks a private pool with a stunning view of the surrounding rugged forest and boulders. This unrecreated splendour of the Vijayanagara Empire by adopting its design sensibilities is illuminated by flickering lamps and the soft light of the Mashal.

Infinity pool or The 'Pushkarni'


Drawing inspiration from the aqueduct-fed Pushkarni or temple tanks of the

Vijayanagara Empire, this monumental pool overlooks a boulder-strewn landscape. A beautifully carved Gopuram with a tiered roof forms the central pavilion of the infinity pool. The recreation of the courtly architectural style of the Vijayanagara Empire along with our uncompromising passion for ‘Understated Elegance’ and ‘Attention to Detail’, enabled us to create an uplifting experience in this royal haven of calm. Characterized by stone pathways and natural boulders, this near Olympic-sized pool takes you backward in time for a royal dip.
