Consistently voted one of Asia’s top three hotels, The Oberoi Rajvilas is a luxury royal resort exquisitely landscaped over 32 acres. It’s the definition of tranquility. The grounds are home to exotic birdlife, native flowers and an 18th century Shiva temple where guests can chant, meditate and practice yoga.
The resort is coloured with the same traditional techniques as neighbouring Jaipur, the Pink City. There is a colonial elegance to its interiors, with Mughal arches, gold-leaf frescos and crystal chandeliers. And it has service to match: attentive, but never imposing
The rooms, which are either air-conditioned safari tents or luxury villas, are clustered round small, private courtyards. There’s a choice of fine international or specialty Indian dining, either inside or outside under cover. Finally, the Library Bar is a wonderful way to end the day with a cocktail or malt.
