What we love

  • A short drive from Jodhpur into the majestic desert of Thar, lies a fort that goes back to the 12th century, while the city’s foundation, to the 4th century BC! Given its prime location as a gateway of India, the region has been ruled by different kings and dynasties over the centuries, until it was finally conquered by the Maharaja of Jodhpur in the 18th century.
  • To relieve the king from his political stress and worries and provide a refuge from all external affairs, palatial havelis were built within the fort of Ahhichhatragarh, which means the ‘Fort of the Hooded Cobra’, where the king could spend time with his beautiful queens.
  • The palace with all its havelis were painstakingly restored over more than a decade to finally open its doors to discerning travellers curious to peak into the rich legacy and heritage of the past. Unpolished sand- stone pillars and jaafris set in perfect liaison with plush cushions, queenly beds, antique wooden jhulas and silk draperies are set to transport you back in the time of Rajas and Maharajas all to experience an imperial living.
  • Oil lamps lining the gravel and sand stone alleys, courtyards where peacocks pirouette and fountains ripple, private terraces accompanying luxurious suits, regal chandeliers, all in a stunning palace straddled over miles of rugged landscape. Don’t think you need more to plan a holiday shunned from the world in the royal exclusivity offered to you by this incredible heritage mansion?

What to know

  • This luxurious palace is hosts the annual World Sacred Spirit Festival, held every year in the month of February. Douse yourself in the spiritual fervour of soulful music or watch mesmerising dancers take over the stage. Poets, musicians, dancers and artists from the world over assemble here every year waiting for you to join them in a marvellous soul cleaning journey. The experience will leave an impression on your mind and give you some of the best days of your life!
  • The havelis, named after the queens who resided in the place, each have two to three bedrooms with either a private courtyard or a terrace. We love how each of these spaces have crisp, bright sunlight streaming in and provide you with the ideal nook to spend quality time with your loved one. This place truly offers a magical experience, one that we recommend to all those looking to nurture the wanderlust within.
  • The food served in the grand palace is prepared from the age old recipes straight from the queens’ kitchen. Enjoy the authentic rich Mughal cuisine under a star lit sky between frescoed pillars and lush Mughal gardens. There’s also a air-conditioned restaurant housed within a beautiful hall where a host of international dishes are served on an a-la-carte basis.

Off to the sand dunes

​Make a date with the sand dunes and slowly drift into the ripples of sand on the back of a camel. Chase the high dunes while soaking in the vastness of the Thar desert coloured just by the sky, first, painted in sunset colours and then, with the shimmering stars!

Once you’re done romancing the sunset, the camel man will snap you out of this dream and lead you to a set up that’s just as enchanting. Make yourself comfortable on the white floor pads, set in a circular arrangement, with candles and lanterns, order your drinks and drift off to the times of the Mughals & Persians with a hookah in your hand. The silence of the desert is broken by musicians who fill the desert air with Rajasthani folk music while colourfully clad men and women put up a beautiful dance performance.
