Ranvas Jodhpur (Nagaur), India

“Following a twenty year renovation by the Maharajah of Jodhpur this collection of havelis is a chic oasis in the heart of the Thar desert. Film set worthy rooms and impossibly romantic candlelit dinners make it ideal for couples. One of the best places to embark on a horse or camel safari.”

“Meticulously and beautifully developed this is much more than a hotel. Ten separate haveli comprising 33 bedrooms, the Ranvas were built in 18th century for the wives of Maharaja Bakhat Singh of Jodhpur within the Ahhichatragarh Fort at Nagaur and are now offered as guest accommodation after a 20-year renovation project by the current Maharaja of Jodhpur. Traditonal building methods were used to create these stunningly appointed rooms, embellished with local artefacts, that want for nothing in modern comfort. There is a swimming pool and spa, plus two restaurants, serving both Mughal Sufi food and international cuisine.”
