An oasis among the rugged outcrops of the Aravalli mountain range, Amanbagh is a Rajasthani retreat informed by Mughal style. Just 90 minutes from Jaipur, the Bengal tiger sanctuary of Sariska National Park is a short drive away


The countryside surrounding Amanbagh reveals the ruins of an ancient empire embedded in a starkly beautiful landscape. The 17th-century township of Bhangarh – abandoned just a generation after its completion – sits nearby, as does the centuries-old village, fort and temple of Ajabgarh, which can be reached by foot or camel from the resort. Sariska National Park, home to tigers, jaguars, sambar deer and more, is a short drive away, as is the temple town of Neelkanth, with more than 80 temples encircled on all sides by mountains

The regal, high-ceilinged Restaurant, looking out over the tree-shaded pool, serves seasonal menus that are centred on the harvest from the resort’s 8,000-square-metre organic gardens. Traditional Rajasthani dishes mix with the chefs favourites from across India, all of which can be tailored to suit individual tastes, to a backdrop of local musicians performing Indian folk and popular songs

Amanbagh’s soothing holistic spa provides a range of therapies and treatments that soothe body and mind after a long day of exploration, including massages, facials, scrubs and traditional henna art. Set amid the verdant grounds of the resort’s oasis setting, the spa’s highly-skilled team of experts makes use of exclusively prepared skincare products, created only from the purest ingredients

Evoking the palatial grandeur of the Mughal era, Amanbagh’s elegant Suites and Pavilions feature lofty ceilings within domed cupolas and regal vaulted entrances. Marble finishes are highlighted by intricate wooden screens, while Mughal arches frame the bed on its raised plinth. Private courtyards or terraces open to the sights and sounds of the lush garden surroundings
