“An authentic but luxurious jungle camp on the edge of Rajasthan’s Ranthambhore National Park, one of the best places in India to spot the Bengal tiger. Superb service, immaculate tents and an infinity pool. Magical.”

Hotel Review

Now a Relais & Chateaux property, this stylish jungle camp is pricy but worth the splurge. You’re immediately transported back to the days of the Raj by the piles of old-fashioned walking sticks and khaki safari hats in the reception. The 12 off-white tents have a similar effect. Stuffed with 19th-century, campaign-style furniture, they reflect the royal hunting camps of the 1920s. And yet no luxury has been forgotten. Expect soft white linen, copious cushions, comfy slippers, dressing gowns and hot-water bottles under your blankets at night. The bathrooms, too, are exquisite, with copper taps, slate floors, marble his-and-hers basins and rainforest showers. After dark, the atmosphere here is magical, with glowing lanterns lighting up gravel pathways and trees. Guests can sip cocktails or puff cigars under starlit skies, around a roaring campfire, while turbaned waiters hand out sumptuous Indian canapés. The food here is mouth-watering. In the evening, traditional thali is dished up around the fire, beside the infinity pool or in the more formal dining tent. And everything is cooked using organic ingredients from Sher Bagh Farm. Most people are here for the wildlife, but a full-body massage in the spa is the perfect antidote to a day in the bush.
