Being the only luxury hotel in Jodhpur’s old city, Raas is not only uniquely located at the base of the impressive Meherangarh fort, it is also a modern-day design masterpiece. The hotel, which opened in late 2009, oozes sophistication, style and elegance, not to mention the breathtaking views and authentic atmosphere.
Lying at the foot of the colossal Meherangarth Fort, Raas is right in the heart of Jodhpur’s walled city. Just seconds away from the vibrant markets and city’s attractions but far enough away to feel completely at peace, this design-focused boutique hotel has a lot to boast about.
The 39 rooms and suites at Raas have been cleverly designed using both original and new buildings, guaranteeing you a completely unique experience. Think cream stone walls and arches, soft cream sofas, twinkling lanterns, wooden beams, a lot of open spaces, glass and earthy tones. We love that each room has its own private balcony with stunning views of the looming fort, complete with relaxation chairs for admiring the fiery sunset.
Why we like it
We love the character of this hotel: every room reflects some kind of story, history or legend. It’s not every day that you hop on a tuk tuk to leave your hotel – let alone one painted in the local Jodhpur blue.
