RAAS Jodhpur echoes the grandeur of a Rajput era through its careful reconstruction and design of an 18th century haveli (traditional mansion). Located against the awe-inspiring 15th century Mehrangarh Fort, almost every room in this hotel enjoys spectacular views of what Time Magazine once rated ‘Asia’s Best Fortress’. Its signature look is a fusion of modern and ancient styles, intricately carved stone panels and antique shrines are a big feature of this heritage hotel, as well as an original 18th century temple. Within its walls, a stable has been converted into a relaxing lounge for reading and quiet time, the original guest area, now an al-fresco dining spot, serves up Rajasthani specialities, and to complete this luxe experience is a heated swimming pool, spa and ‘Gem Palace’. Ultra chic urban boutique.
