“Oasis”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The hotel is tucked away in the very noisy old town but unbelievably once inside it is a haven of beauty and peace with just a gentle reminder from the street that you are in the centre of a major city.

The view from the room is amazing but the fort really comes to life at night, especially when sitting on the roof terrace with a heavenly cocktail.

Everyone was lovely, welcoming, friendly and everything was never too much trouble and done with a smile.

We are already looking into booking for next year!

We went there on Honeymoon last week and we had an amaizing time.
The hotel is very well located in the old town of Jodphur. We had a great experience throughout our entire stay at the hotel. The service is very good and we were greated by the GM that took good care of us. You must try the SPA, very relaxing and with good rates.
The best was the view from our room: stunning. Wireless is free which is always good.
Not to forget the nice swimming pool.
The only thing that could eventually be disturbing is the noise from the Mosque next door.

Room Tip: You should ask for a room in the new wing of the hotel, they have the best views, preferably 2nd or...

Great design hotel located right under the fort. Spa facility with good full body massage ( strongly recommend it). The pool itself is nice and the terraces around it are relaxing. The rooms seem ok, the suite is really nice with a shower on the main floor and a bathroom/saloon on the first floor as these are duplexes. Views from the hotel are really worth seeing.

Staying at the Raas is a truly beautiful experience. From the moment we arrived to the moment we departed, we experienced excellence in every respect. The hotel itself is a beautiful oasis in busy Jodhpur with a backdrop that takes your breath away. The stylish design, an elegant mix of old world charm and modern contemporary layout, provides the perfect oasis for a completely relaxed stay The Raas has an added dimension offering an almost spiritual peace. The facilities are superb. The restaurants are excellent and the hotel's organic food garden provides fresh and fantastic quality fruit and vegetables and a delicious and diverse menu. This was a perfect experience in every way. Thank you to all the wonderful staff for making our Jodhpur experience so memorable.

Room Tip: Try to choose a room with a view of the fort. The balconies are fantastic.

Great service, tasty complimentary breakfast, personal blue tuk tuk tour, amazing design, candle light, beautiful pool and lounge, ginger honey lemon iced tea upon arrival. We'll be back! The restaurant near the pool is a little spendy, but dang they've got the best gulab jammu in India. Stay here!

we traveled for over a month in India. we stayed in many 5 star. Raas was simply the best. It is located in center city next to the fort by markets and other sites. Service and restaurants were outstanding. The room was great. When i return to India, I will go out of my way to retrun to Jodhpur just to stay here again.

We stayed at Raas for two nights for our first year wedding anniversary and had the best time, we really can't fault it.
As soon as we arrived we were made to feel like royalty...with every member of staff knowing our names and greeting us personally and all knowing it was our anniversary we felt so special.
The hotel is simply stunning...right in the middle of the 'characterful' Jodhpur old city the design is mesmerising....there as so many little spots and areas to sit and relax, have a cool drink, sit by the fantastic pool - all beautiful.
Our room was also fantastic - some really great details - dvds available to borrow, lots of complementary bottled water in the room, nice toiletries, the biggest and comfiest bed I've ever seen and a lovely balcony with view.
But the service was what made this a really memorable stay - nothing was too much for anyone. We had a compile tart bottle of wine and a cheese plate and a card on arrival for our anniversary, on our last night we had dinner in our room and they baked a chocolate cake with a message written on again for our anniversary. We were asked throughout the day if we were ok if we wanted anything but without being annoying or overbearing.
I could go on....it you get the idea!!

We have stayed at a lot of similar style hotels mostly found/booked through Mr and Mrs Smith but these guys at Raas have got something special here and are doing a fantastic job....it's worth a trip to Jodhpur just to go to Rass!

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the fort with a balcony which was stunning! If its a special occasion make...

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
