Popped up for the weekend from Mumbai and enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Raas.
The room had a tub (not so common in India) and a private garden, as well as a king sized bed and, walk in closet and TV/lounge areas. The pool was super refreshing, meals were delicious, staff was attentive to our every need. room 102.
They quickly arranged rickshaws at our every whim, with drivers who were willing to become tour guides as need. They ran out to pick up pharmacy items we needed as well as mailed post cards for us.
The spa was beautiful and relaxing but the masseuses could use a little more training...we're used to better and Raas should be offering that quality.
Just down the street is Shri Mangalam which sells wholesale and retail textiles - scarves, bedcovers, pillows, clothes, bags, etc. Harish runs is and is totally honest. He'll give you a fair price and a heads up to avoid the street stalkers who prey on tourists then harrass shop owners for commission.
Not even a stone's throw from Harish's is M.R. Juti (Mojari) which is literally a hole in the wall. He sells beautifully made leather shoes and sandals at an excellent price.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Inside the Walled City of Jodhpur and under the imposing stare of Mehrangarh Fort, sits RAAS. The site was formerly the home of the aristocratic Thakur family, and the original 18th-century haveli has been carefully renovated to produce the four old buildings of the hotel. The three new buildings are modern and contemporary in their use of space and light, and yet are grounded in tradition. Jodhpur's red sandstone unites the new with the old, with modern designs in its latticing and carving adding a fresh dimension to the region's age-old stone carving industry. This seamless harmony between the old and the new, the modern and the traditional, extends to all aspects of RAAS. Almost all of the rooms have magnificent views of Mehrangarh Fort from both the private terraces and from the cast iron bathtubs, and those that don’t have their own private gardens and views over the old haveli and landscaped gardens of RAAS. The rooms are furnished with state of the art amenities: all rooms are air-conditioned with the latest eco friendly machines, and have overhead fans, hairdryers, safes, central heating, wi-fi, TV, telephones and en suite bathrooms. There are rooms with easy access for the handicapped and non-smoking rooms. RAAS boasts two fine dining restaurants, which offer both Indian and International cuisine: Darikhana is a beautiful terraced restaurant and the Baradari Café is inside the old pavilion and offers a relaxing location near the pool. There is also a luxury spa that offers a full range of treatments and a boutique shop. RAAS is the ideal place to soak up the rich local heritage of Jodhpur while at the same time indulging in opulent luxury and comfort. As soon as you drive through the old wooden gates in RAAS’s very own blue tuk-tuk, the majesty of Mehrangarh Fort will be tempered by your sense of relaxation. ... more less
