Raas – Jodhpur

This hotel is the perfect combination between new and old! Jodhpur’s first boutique hotel with trendy bedrooms, can be found just in the middle of Jodhpur’s ancient walled city, close to the Clock Tower, and with amazing views at Mehrangarh Fort. Just step outside the hotel to find yourself on a crowded street, full of motorcycle rickshaws, cows and street vendors.

Why this is one of our favorite places to stay
  • It is the only boutique hotel within an Indian Walled-City, at short distance of the Clock Tower and at the foot of the Mehrangarh Fort.
  • Contemporary design in a traditional 300-year-old mansion with views at the Mehrangarh Fort. Old and new in perfect harmony!
  • The complimentary Kama Ayurveda products in the bathroom, and the intimate Spa using the same products.
  • Chef Amrita MukherjeeÆs delicious meals at Darikhana Restaurant. Ask for a table overlooking the Haveli.

Rass is located below Jodhpur's Mehrangarh Fort and a few streets away from the clock tower to the north-eastern Sadar Market entrance.

Rooms And Suites

There are 39 rooms, 7 of which are suites with separate sitting rooms, larger balconies and bathrooms. 35 rooms have views of the Mehrangarh Fort and the remaining 4 rooms have private gardens overlooking the old, restored buildings. All rooms and suites have balconies and are decorated with great flair and care. They are contemporary, understated and make the most of Jodhpur's pink sandstone, stunning black terrazzo and with splashes of 'Jodhpur blue'. They are state of the art and furnished to an exceptionally high degree of modern comfort and sophistication. Light, space and clean lines are the bywords here. A nice extra are the complimentary Kama Ayurveda Products in the bathroom. We love them!
