Located in the shadow of the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, RAAS Jodhpur is a beautiful boutique hotel that flawlessly blends traditional Rajisthani architecture with contemporary design.
The hotel comprises four buildings, the oldest of which was built in the late 18th century and would have served as the Maharaja’s family residence. Three contemporary buildings surround the original haveli, constructed from the local rose-red sandstone so as to maintain a harmony between old and new.
With just 39 rooms, RAAS has a real boutique feel to it. Decor is sleek and understated so as not to detract from the beautiful views of the fort which can be enjoyed from almost every room in the hotel. Some of the suites feature exposed sandstone walls and elegant arches while every room leads out onto a balcony from which to soak up the surroundings.
Walking between the buildings you’ll wind your way through tranquil gardens to a soundtrack of lemongrass swaying gently in the breeze and the occasional splash as a frog leaps into the cool waters of the pond. An outdoor pool is surrounded by cabanas under which you can escape the sun and there is a spa offering a range of holistic treatments.
With seasonal vegetables and herbs grown in their own organic garden and spices hand selected from a 200-year-old spice shop, the cuisine here is something really special. Choose to enjoy your meals in the dining room or head out onto the terrace for a romantic meal overlooking the illuminated fort. Jodhpur is a fascinating place and you’re ideally situated to explore the Blue City being just a short walk from the Clock Tower and the bustling markets.
