If opulence and luxury are what's in your mind for your next getaway, then a stay at a beautiful 14th century fort would certainly prove to be an unforgettable experience. Originally home to a Rajasthani royal family, the historic Fort Barwara has been sensitively converted to reinterpret the regal ambience of a bygone era and offer travellers an exclusive experience. A three-hour drive from Jaipur and a 30-minute drive from Ranthambore National Park, the luxury hotel is all set to launch this October 2021, just in time for the season when it's ideal to visit.
With sustainability as an underlying philosophy, the restoration efforts have not been reserved for the fort alone but also the surrounding landscape and the wider Barwara community. What's located within the walled fort are two palaces and two temples that are surrounded by traditional gardens and water features. Shekhawati art further adds charm to the many restored spaces.
The hotel houses 48 suites, showcasing contemporary Rajasthani decor and offering scenic views of the Aravalli range and the countryside. Some suites are designed to include private gardens and rooftop terraces. For those looking to splurge, the exclusive Raja Man Singh Suite comes with a private enclosed garden with a pool and dining pavilion.
