Secluded on the grounds of the maharajah of Alwar’s former hunting preserve in unspoiled countryside, this palatial walled resort is located a 90-minute drive northeast of Jaipur. Domed cupolas, serene courtyards, elegant colonnades and acres of pale-pink sandstone define the imaginative Mughal-style buildings. The reception mansion opens onto a dining veranda that surveys a 110-foot green-marble swimming pool. The property’s 37 elegantly appointed lodgings are divided between artistically crafted haveli suites, with courtyard gardens and baths with green-marble tubs, and domed pavilions, with 30-foot private pools and outdoor dining and lounging gazebos. An excellent restaurant serves traditional Rajasthani dishes that employ produce sourced from the resort’s 2-acre organic garden. Spa treatments, hatha yoga lessons and guided tours to ancient ruins and temples can be arranged, plus excursions to visit resident tigers in the nearby Sariska National Park. Note that the hotel is closed every June and July.
