Set in Jodhpur’s old walled city, in the shadow of majestic Mehrangarh Fort, RAAS is Jodhpur's first boutique hotel. A fusion of stylish contemporary design with traditional, restored palace architecture, the hotel is a rare and charming complex that reflects in many ways the Walled City itself. With its sensational vistas, different styles and angles, a central water body, square and garden; and an all pervasive warm "organic feel", RAAS is a microcosm of the city.
The fantastic location of the hotel on the foot of Mehrangarh fort affords a view of the majestic fort from almost every corner of the property. It’s central location in the old city, gives guests an opportunity to wander and explore the old walled city of Jodhpur on their own.
There are 39 rooms including seven suites with separate sitting rooms, larger balconies and bathrooms. 35 rooms of the hotel have views of the Mehrangarh Fort and the remaining 4 rooms have private gardens overlooking the old, restored buildings. All rooms and suites have balconies and are furnished to an exceptionally high degree of modern comfort and sophistication.
The categories of room at RAAS are:
Garden Room : The 4 garden rooms offer a private sit-out garden. With soft furnishings and a well-tended flowerbed, these offer the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of Jodhpur.
Luxury Room: 28 rooms offering stunning uninterrupted views of the Mehrangarh Fort from the bedroom, bathroom and private balcony. All the rooms are decorated in an understated modern black and white design, while traditional hand-crafted Jodhpur red sandstone jhali (windows) provide a bright contrast.
Duplex Suite: The 4 Duplex Suites are located in the modern block, and boast a private balcony and covered seating area offering unparallel high-rise views of the Mehrangarh Fort. With a separate duplex bedroom and living-room, these offer the perfect place for groups to relax in private and admire the Blue City.
Heritage Suite: The 3 Heritage suites sit in the original eighteenth century Rajput residence, but still offer the ultimate in modern luxury, with a large bedroom, separate shower, and a cast-iron bath-tube. Each suite a separate terrace, courtyard and completely private living area. Two of the suites share a common boundary – perfect for larger groups. The suites' elevation offers beautiful view of the Mehrangarh Fort in the front and the hotel landscaping at back.
RAAS has two multicuisine restaurants, the Darikhana Restaurant and Baradari Café by the pool.
Darikhana: The terrace of darikhana boasts magnificent views of the Mehrangarh Fort, which glows pink in the day and is gloriously illuminated at night, providing the perfect place for a romantic meal. It serves fragrant dishes which sizzle with the aromas of hand-ground old delhi spices, specially selected from a 200 year old shop hidden in the warren of Old Delhi. Seasonal vegetables, salads and herbs are sourced from RAAS own organic garden.
Baradari Café: Baradari Café offers a selection of international dishes with a Thai and Mediterranean focus. Enjoy organic, home-grown salads and herbs as you relax on the terrace and admire the view. The café serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
