This glorious little hotel lies at the foot of the mighty Meherangarh Fort, in the heart of Jodhpur’s Walled City. It is the only luxury hotel to be based in the old town and the views of the fort above are quite spectacular. Strolling away from the excitement, hustle and bustle of the old town and walking under Raas’s imposing gateway is like entering a blissfully peaceful, hidden oasis.
Almost all of the rooms and suites have fort views. They are highly sophisticated and the decor is chic. This exquisite, intimate, hotel is Jodhpur’s first boutique hotel and has changed the face of tourism in this historic, edge of desert city.
The majestic 250 year old Ahilya Fort sits on the edge of a cliff, high above the mighty Narmada River, surrounded by the beautiful and unexploited town of Maheshwar.

With the fabulous, deserted city of Mandu and the famed island temple of Omkareshwar nearby, this is a place at which to spend time and relax but from where you can also explore the area, undisturbed by other tourists. The Royal Tent here boasts one of the most spectacular views and locations of any hotel in the world and truly is “fit for a king”.Slideshow >
