the Low Down
RAAS is Jodhpur’s first boutique hotel. The signature look was born from the fusion of modern and ancient styles and the courtyard has become a tranquil haven away from the bustle of Jodhpur’s old town. The hotel comprises four original buildings with three additional contemporary structures, influenced by and contributing to its cultural past as part of the Walled City. The new buildings are modern and contemporary in their use of space and light; and yet grounded in tradition. The whole hotel is overlooked by Mehrangarh, an awe-inspiring 15th century fort looming 400 feet above the Jodhpur skyline. When lit up in the evenings, the views are simply breathtaking and, like virtually every home here, almost every room in the hotel enjoys the most spectacular view of the fort, rated in 2008 by Time Magazine as “Asia’s Best Fortress”.

- Signature Activities:
Without a doubt Mehrangarh Fort is the site to see in Jodhpur and it is worth making a day of it. hough it’s open from 9 to 5, the fort itself is best to see first thing in the morning, when it’s coolest, maybe after some sunrise yoga on the rooftop of Baradari. For the more adventurous types, the Flying Fox Zipline is definitely worth doing. Six different zip lines crisscross the top of the fort; in the hotel, the converted stables provide lovely shaded alcoves; equipped with a plethora of board games and books, they provide shaded seclusion and a great place to chill out as a family. Cookery courses are hugely popular with families, we can open up our kitchens to you and our head chef will help you craft a set of recipes for you to cook and then devour for dinner.
All rates are subject to 18% GST and Service Charge
The hotel can accommodate a maximum of 2 children up to 8years old when sharing the adult’s room. Accommodation is complimentary when sharing with parents or another adult – meals and transfers and other services are chargeable.
