Being the only luxury hotel in Jodhpur’s old city, the Raas Hotel is not only uniquely located at the base of the impressive Mehrangarh 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 breath-taking views and authentic atmosphere.
Lying at the foot of the colossal Mehrangarh Fort, the 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 to feel completely relaxed in total peace and quiet, this design-focused boutique hotel has much to boast about.
The 39 rooms at the 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 space, glass and earthy tones. We love that each room has its own private balcony with stunning views of the majestic Fort, complete with relaxation chairs to watch the brilliant, orange 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.
