RAAS Hotel in Jodhpur, India

December 24, 2010 by

RAAS is a 39-room, four-star, luxury boutique hotel in Jodhpur, India.

Located just beneath the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, RAAS is the only
luxury boutique hotel within an Indian Walled-City. RAAS boasts a
prestigious location in the north-eastern quarter of the Walled City
near Mehrangarh’s Victory Palace and Gate and the Clock Tower. With
understated elegance, RAAS brings contemporary design to a historical
building. A collaboration of two brothers, Nikhilendra and Dhananajaya
Singh, RAAS has reclaimed the grandeur of this 300-year-old mansion.
With a secluded infinity pool, luxurious spa, and striking views from
room balconies, RAAS guests can either partake in the excitement of
Jodhpur or stay within the tranquility of a unique urban getaway. The
airport is only a 20-minute drive away with connections to Delhi’s
International Airport.

All rooms at RAAS are equipped with televisions and DVD players, wifi,
telephone, minibar, complementary mineral water, and in-room safe.
RAAS can accommodate small conferences and meetings with rooms for
12-15 people.

Guests can choose from two restaurants at RAAS: the Darikhana
Restaurant features Indian cuisine and the Baradari Pool Café with
Continental cuisine. For adventure enthusiasts, guests can arrange for
a number of outings like trekking, a tuk tuk ride, city walk, sunset
excursion, or a horse, camel, desert, or Jeep safari.

RAAS was designed by Lotus Design Services and Praxis with a seamless
three-way fusion of antiquity, innovative technology, and ecological
sustainability in mind. Sleek minimal jali screens front the RAAS
suites, which feature solar-heated cast-iron bathtubs. All rooms were
renovated with the labor of local craftspeople, helping to sustain and
develop the surrounding community. The Singh brothers have created a
hotel that is inextricably linked with its environs, which makes for a
peerlessly cohesive stay.
