India’s cultural essence combined with its most iconic sights and greatest bucket list experiences, all distilled into one compact, diverse and vibrant region.
Situated deep in the Rajasthan countryside, this sumptuous haven of a hotel combines romance, style and sheer luxury. Although built on a former royal hunting ground, it’s not strictly a heritage property but rather a modern retro-styled palace embracing Mughal and Rajput motifs. It’s a sublimely restful place with a large swimming pool and lovely gardens – an idyllic retreat from the general clamour of urban India if money is no object.
The resort has an excellent programme of excursions, including picnics by Somsagar Lake and guided shopping trips into Jaipur, ninety minutes’ drive away. Although this might seem a long way for a day trip, staying at Amanbag does offer the chance to experience both the stunning Rajasthani countryside and one of its most bewitching cities.
The hotel is virtually encircled by rugged hills with a nearby embankment – part of a former royal hunting ground – creating a shallow lake. A small fortress stands on a nearby hillock overlooking Ajabgarh village. The atmosphere is utterly bucolic and serene, while picturesque rural life endures at its own leisurely pace.
Just 30 minutes away, the Sariska Tiger Reserve is home to abundant wildlife including leopards, jackals, deer and hyenas; its once decimated tiger population is growing. Kankwadi, a 17th-century fort, stands atop a hill near its heart.
