This was the first Aman resort that I had stayed at with my wife. I was on a work related trip through india with stops in bangalore, hyderabad and Dehli and to say that this was an escape to paradise would be an understatement.
Everything from our arrival,to the freshly squeezed pomegranate juice, to our own privately set evening meal under the stars was superb. The room (it almost goes without saying) was stunning and more that comfortable. You often hear about the legendary Aman standard of hotels and service and this did not feel to meet expectations.
Obviously the hotel is in the 'ultra luxury' category in an underprivileged area of India which may appear awkward but the way that the local community is involved with the hotel both in providing staff who are trained up, but also guides, supplies etc is to be commended, as is the way that the hotel puts resources back into the community.
If there was a negative it would be that you are effectively 'locked in' to eating at the hotel restaurant, not so much be design but be necessity. I would say that the restaurant was good, but not exceptional relative to other top eateries in India.
The Amanbagh is a spectacular hotel which ticks all the boxes. A real oasis in India not to be missed and a property which gives you the diametric opposite of the busy Indian city life and takes you back a hundred years (in a good way)
