Ratan Vilas, Jodhpur, Rajasthan

Discover the Ratan Vilas

This beautiful heritage hotel was once the home of the Maharaj Ratan Singh, and still retains a regal feel, with grand pillars, secluded courtyards and luscious lawns. A welcome retreat hidden away from the bustling Indian streets, this palatial paradise has a glorious outdoor swimming pool for a cooling dip after a day’s exploring in Jodhpur, and a small boutique for gifts and souvenirs.

For breakfast, lunch or dinner, you can sample a medley of traditional Indian flavours and continental fares in the dining room or al fresco amongst the trees in the garden.
