The hotel lies at the foot of the mighty Meherangarh Fort, in the heart of Jodhpur’s Walled City and is Jodhpur's first boutique hotel. It is situated in the prestigious north-eastern quarter of the Walled City, just a stone’s throw from the Clock Tower. One may simply wander out into the surrounding maze of streets to explore the markets. The hotel comprises four charismatic old (150 years), restored buildings in Jodhpur’s very own ‘rose-red’ sandstone. This is combined with stylish, contemporary new buildings, which have been designed by an acclaimed architect.
The new buildings are modern and contemporary in their use of space and light; and yet grounded in tradition. Indeed, each of its structures is adorned with intricate architectural carvings in the iconic Haveli style of the 18th century, juxtaposed against modern designs and patterns. Jodhpur's red sand-stone unites the new with the old, as modern designs add an exciting and fresh dimension to the region's age-old stone carving industry. The magnificent pol, along with the staff quarters and guardhouse, makes a stunning entry to the hotel.
The whole complex 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".
