Live like royalty at the Alila Jaipur in one of India's most fascinating and historical places. This heritage resort is a 230-year-old former warrior fort melding both the grandeur of British and Mughal architecture, perched atop a granite hill with stunning views. The original battlement turrets and walls surrounding the fort are still preserved in this gem located in the rustic terrain.
Located in Bishangarh Village near Jaipur, the Alila Jaipur is surrounded by the rural landscape of the Indian state of Rajasthan. Often referred to as the Land of Kings, palaces and forts dot the countryside. You will catch many glimpses of women dressed in colored fabrics and jingling bangles and see firsthand the traditional lifestyle in the village at the foot of the hill.
The fort features five different luxury royal suites, each designed with large bay windows to take in the panoramic views. Each room has modern amenities and art and textiles from the local craftsmen.
The heritage rooms are spacious with traditional Rajasthani style arched windows used primarily in palaces and temples. The 11 Royal suites combine modern aesthetics, a large footed bathtub and connecting rooms. Neutral tones that mirror the fort’s exterior are interrupted with strokes of color in the Grand Royal Suites. Step into noble splendor in the Regal Suites with daybeds offering a perfect spot to unwind with a book.
Enjoy Rajasthan’s local cuisine at four on-site restaurants. The Amarsar restaurant features hand painted wall art and archways and serves delicacies from the spice route. Savor sand pit cooking and barbecue at the outdoor Nazaara terrace lounge. Sip on drinks and traditional Indian tea known as chai at the Kachhawa Lounge.
Liven your spirit in the Alila Jaipur spa, where yoga classes and relaxing treatments are offered.
A 45-minute drive to Jaipur invites you to the royal courts where noblemen and kings entertained in ornate palaces and forts. Founded in 1726 by Jai Singh II, Jaipur is known as the Pink City for the buildings in this hue. Jaipur’s bazaars offer sarees and trinkets from the local artisans who have worked on their crafts over generations.
Head back to the rural outskirts surrounded by the Arvalli Hills after a day in this bustling city. Alila means “surprise” in India’s ancient Sanskrit language, and you will be in awe of this resort’s royal treatment.Request Information
