A property dating back to the 18th century, characterizes in every detail the history and tradition of days long past. With delicately carved stone panels, the hall-mark of Rajput Architecture, rooms designed to the tastes of former Indian princes for entertaining, and the use of Jodhpur’s very own ‘rose-red’ sandstone, this property reflects in many ways the Walled City itself. Modernity and tradition meet over and over again throughout, where contemporary designs and patterns add a revitalizing dimension to ancient stone carvings and sandstone backdrops.
Enjoy the most spectacular view of Mehrangarh, rated Asia’s best fortress in 2008 by TIME magazine, from hand-crafted Jodhpur red sandstone jhali (windows) while staying in rooms designed with a simple and elegant aesthetic. Such a dichotomy of old and new is carried through the resort experience, including the restaurant. It serves fragrant dishes which smell deliciously of hand-ground old delhi spices, specially selected from a 200 year old shop hidden in the warren of old delhi. Seasonal vegetables, salads and herbs are homegrown in raas own organic garden.
