Discreetly tucked away, just off a narrow lane within the city’s ancient walls, Raas Jodhpur is a stylish conversion of an 18th-century Maharajah’s residence. From its enviable central location you can dip in and out of the chaotic bustle of the old town before retreating to this calm oasis.
As you step through the lobby your gaze is drawn towards the majestic, 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort that dominates the skyline and overlooks the property from its hilltop position. Jaw-dropping fort views can be enjoyed throughout the hotel from almost every room, whether you’re swimming lengths in the heated swimming pool, sipping a cocktail in the rooftop bar or dining at the rooftop restaurant. It’s an enticing reason to stay…
Slap bang in the heart of the old town, almost in the shadow of the majestic Mehrangarh Fort, Raas Jodhpur is perfectly positioned for exploring this fascinating city.

Discover what to expect from staying at Raas Jodhpur
The location of this hotel is simply unbeatable. Set in the centre of town, everything to see and discover is right on your doorstep. Take an afternoon to visit the nearby 18th-century stepwell, whose restoration Raas contributed towards, and be awed by its rich history and architecture. The real beauty is that, when it all gets too much (the hustle and bustle can sometimes be a little overwhelming), you are mere minutes away from retreating back into your calm oasis, ready to be welcomed by the attentive and friendly staff.
The conversion of this beautiful Maharajah’s residence is certainly stylish and sophisticated, but what Raas have done so brilliantly is keep its original charm and Rajistani style at the fore. We love how tradition still flows throughout the hotel and you get a real sense of place being here. Sit on your private balcony and enjoy a refreshing drink in the hot evening air gazing at the magnificent fort views. This hotel certainly delivers the best of both worlds.
Tap into the region's culture with a guided walk, provided by the hotel - a soft introduction into this hectic city. Get to grips with local life and nature by visiting a nearby village, arriving on the back of a camel or feeling the wind in your hair in an open top jeep. Enjoy an evening of candlelight and private dining, perhaps for a special occasion, or simply snuggle down and order room service from the comfort of your private suite. The hotel is truly spectacular in design and faultless in service, and just beyond its boundaries the markets dazzle and the city comes to life.
Take your best shot at spotting wildlife with an itinerary that includes not one but three different parks, all located in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. This allows you to explore some surprisingly diverse scenery, see myriad bird and animal species, and hugely increase your chances of spotting one of these elusive big cats.
