Heritage hotels in Rajasthan offer not only clean and comfortable accommodation but also provide a wonderful opportunity to peek into the regal way of living of Rajastan royalty.

A member of design hotel, RAAS’s architecture marks a distinct change from the curvy cupolas and butter yellows of the Rajput style. While the stark red stone walls and minimalist structures lent the place and almost industrial feel, the hotel nevertheless dates back to the 18th century and is located in the Old City of Jodhpur, among the famous blue Brahmin houses.

Chhatra Sagar, Nimaj
Chhatra Sagar is a beautiful dam built on a once-seasonal spring by Thakur Chhatra Sagar of Nimaj to harvest rainwater and sustain farming in the dry region of Marwar. Today a line of sublime tents perches upon the dam facing east towards a clean horizon. This may not technically fit into the definition of a heritage hotel but then who cares as long as one gets a feel of Royal Rajasthan. The idea behind this accommodation is to recreate the feel of hunting parties camping in the countryside where the main event was the landscape.
