If you’re looking for a traditional fort with high ceilings and fireplaces then its time to pick between the suites or tents at Ramathra Fort. Situated at the banks of Kalisil River, the partially restored fort brings you the essence of nature and wildlife all into the experience.

Whether the sunset from the Zanana rooftop or the ethnic style of the property attracts you, then visiting the Lakshman Sagar in Pali is your best bet. The vibrant colors emphasize the possibility of mindless relaxation. Extract the beauty from the surreal views of the lake and Aravillas with the scent of a cup of masala chai.

A lush yet formal Mughal garden surrounds the traditional Rajput hunting palace in Sawai brings you an Indo-Islamic experience. The idealistic background of Nahargarh is well-served by the Aravalli Hills. The view of the Ranthambore National Park adds another aura to the moments spent. Find inspiration among the wilderness during the safari by spotting tigers, leopards, and blackbucks. Experience the fine dining and splendor at the Nahargarh Ranthambore.
The prestigious glory and luxury inspires us to see beyond a simple getaway. Fort Chanwa introduces a true “blast-from-the-past” experience in Luni. In 1992, when Chanwa was restored as an encouragement towards the tourism industry in Western Rajasthan- the doors had been opened for the fresh generations to explore. The princely hospitality welcomes travelers from near and far as one of the traditions set by the proud owners, Maharaj Dalip Singh and Rani Madhu Devi. What can be better than to enjoy the life of the Royals with a soothing cultural and musical evening on the lawn with your loved ones?
If glamping is your forte then this is an experience you wouldn’t want to miss. These Swiss cottage-styled tents will end your cravings for an all-rounded glamping experience. It’s time to put The Wilderness Camp as the top-spot to travel to as it brings an off-beat experience amidst a remote village in Rohet. The colors & architecture of the Rajasthani state will introduce this desert experience as the most memorable one yet.
