Hotel chain acquires Jodhpur property

Design Hotels has added a unique property to its Indian portfolio after acquiring a 300-year-old mansion in Jodhpur.

RAAS is a 39-room hotel that was completely renovated by local brothers. It is nestled in the foot of the Meherangarh Fort and is close to the Clock Tower.

It is the first boutique accommodation in the region and could appeal to those looking for luxury when taking flights to India for a holiday.

"Every red sandstone, every pebblewash terrazzo panel is the product of hundreds of hours of local craftsmen. I'd be very happy if people who stay here don’t perceive luxury from just a big bed, but the luxury of the handcrafted work done especially for this place," explained RAAS co-founder Nikhilendra Singh.

Guests can enjoy the hotel's courtyard which has an infinity pool and terraced gardens or select from a range of activities on offer including camel safaris and desert picnics.

The hotel is a well-placed for those taking flights to Delhi as it is a 20 minute drive from the city's international airport.
