Official star rating:
Standing on the edge of Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, this exceptional retreat offers the last word in ‘glamping’. Ten extravagant, high-ceilinged tents replicate the feel and ambience of a royal Mughal travelling camp.
Just fifteen minutes’ drive from the entrance to Ranthambore, the hotel offers twice-daily safaris (just after sunrise and late afternoon) to see the tigers. Other experiences include guided walks to Khandar Fort inside the reserve, horseback safaris and excursions by camel through the property’s hinterland. Male guests can have a barber’s traditional shave, while women can try traditional henna skin-art.
Along with the swimming pool there’s also a spa tent with ayurvedic treatments, massages, yoga and aromatic baths. An organic garden complements a fine-dining restaurant and you can round off dessert with drinks around a divan-ringed fire pit. There’s nothing else quite so luxurious near any of India’s other tiger reserves.
Framed by Ranthambore’s rugged scrubby hills and partly surrounded by farmland, Aman-i-Khas is blessed with rural and tranquil environs well away from the scruffy work-a-day town of Sawai Madhopur. Although not truly isolated, the occasional spooky wail of jackals at night might suggest otherwise.
