This glorious hotel lies at the foot of the mighty Meherangarh Fort, in the heart of Jodhpur’s Walled City. It is the only luxury hotel in the old town and the views of the fort above are quite spectacular. The brainchild of 2 brothers in the Jodhpur Royal Family, their vision and passion to restore the old city began with what was once ruins but is now the ‘go to’ boutique hotel in ‘The Blue City’. Their restoration work has spread beyond the hotel - the immediate, derelict old city and neighbouring stepwell are now restored to their former glory and wonderful to explore on foot. The property remains today the best preserved, largest urban noble residence in Rajasthan and has been inspirationally and painstakingly brought back to life.
RAAS Jodhpur comprises four stunning, original red sandstone buildings juxtaposed with slick, modern structures, painted the famous ‘Jodhpur Blue’. The combination of the old and the new works extraordinarily well. It is young at heart and different and has leafy, central gardens and an inviting swimming pool, together with an enchanting spa run immaculately by the much loved brand, Ila Spa. Dining here is also a variable treat, either in the atmospheric dining room, on the al fresco terrace, or on the impossibly romantic rooftop bar. Or, just hop next door to the hip new Stepwell Café for a buzzy vibe. Almost all the rooms and suites have fort views, some have balconies and some have terraces. They are highly sophisticated and the décor is chic, contemporary and understated with earthy colours and the famous dusky pink Jodhpur stone. The bathrooms are state of the art and the subtle use of colour, combined with superb design and craftsmanship are really outstanding. The new Stepwell Suite is truly exceptional with both the bedroom and private terrace gazing directly over the glorious stepwell which is as beautiful at night as it is busy by day!
Jodhpur has an almost ‘frontier’ feel to it and the fort is one of the best preserved and displayed in Rajasthan. Being able to walk up to it from your hotel is a unique and special experience, not to mention wandering around the hugely colourful nearby bazaar and clock tower square. This exquisite, intimate, hotel is Jodhpur’s only boutique hotel and is THE place to stay in Jodhpur – it happily and regularly plays host to the great and the good! Leaving the excitement, hustle and bustle of the old town behind, and walking under RAAS Jodhpur’s imposing gateway is like entering an oasis of calm.
All hot water in the hotel is generated by solar power. All water is treated by their Sewage Treatment Plant and used for landscaping. The stone jaali (screen) acts as a skin for the building and absorbs and retains the sun's heat, thus considerably reducing the need for heating in winter and air-conditioning in summer.
