HOT DEALS AND NEW HOTELS
RAAS has a sensational position beneath Jodhpur's imposing Mehrangarh Fort; as the only luxury boutique hotel within an Indian Walled-City, it embodies class with a rare and understated elegance. By grafting contemporary architecture and ambience onto the 300-year-old mansion, brothers Nikhilendra and Dhananajaya Singh have reclaimed, indeed enhanced, its grandeur.
A nuanced harmony permeates the hotel's 32-room, 7-suite grounds. Striking views from the balcony of each room mean guests are privy to the exotic rhythms and color of Jodhpur. At the same time they can find recluse in the Mughal-style terraced gardens, the secluded infinity pool, and the assorted spa treatments inspired by Ayurveda.
"Jodhpur is similar to Jerusalem or Marrakech: you're not just a passive witness, you're immersed," says RAAS co-founder Nikhilendra Singh. By offsetting the city's raw charms with unparalleled tranquility, the hotel is a place of pilgrimage for those in search of relaxation and reflection. Far from neo- colonial, RAAS allows guests to share in the rebirth of past glories as something altogether more modern and inclusive.
The hotel interweaves the trappings of nobility with a localized, earthy luxury in a setting that offers repose from Jodhpur’s hustle and bustle.
Situated in the prestigious north-eastern quarter of the Walled City, in the very shade of Mehrangarh’s Victory Palace and Gate - a stone’s throw from the Clock Tower. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the airport with daily connections to Delhi's International Airport.
