“Want to go back......devine.”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

We spent three nights at the RAAS hotel over the Deepavali festival. An unforgettable experience!! Such a gorgeous hotel. The room was spacious and stylish, the bathroom was top quality (had an enormous bath with a candle on the side), the view of the Fort spectacular and the combination of modern and ancient architecture really effective.
As you approach the hotel from the reception area it is breathtakingly beautiful.
The pool was lovely, the rooftop terrace with view on the fort very romantic and the quality of the food, in particular the breakfast, excellent. The staff were all very attentive and helpful (my husband needed to see a doctor and hotel immediately arranged a one to attend to him in the privacy of our room). Overall this hotel rates as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed. An oasis in the middle of a busy, noisy City.

Room Tip: Room with a terrace.

Very narrow approach from market. Average hotel , staff is little carefree . I asked for wifi which they can fix in two days, even intercom was out of order. Due to some unavoidable circumstances I needed to cut short my stay at jodhpur but hotel was reluctant to refund my booking amount.

We have just arrived back from 3 weeks in India and after everything we have seen the view of the fort from our hotel room balcony is completely up there with our first view of the Taj!
A walled oasis is the Raas Haveli ... staff are lovely, helpful, friendly and fabulously attired! The rooms are simply styled but beautiful, food was completely delish and the view ... well that baby just knocks your knee high socks off!
We stayed here for Diwali and the echo's of the firecrackers for 3 days combined with the beautiful sounds of the calling for prayer from the mosque next door (seriously anyone who is whinging about it, what on earth are you complaining about? It's so relaxing and magical! And quite amusing during the day when they go for the high notes!) It gave us an experience we will never forget.
We dined throughout all areas, including the rooftop bar. There is a deep-fried-sesame-covered yoghurt-filled something which we can't remember the name of but was a highlight of our foodie trip! (Try it!) Also used the laundry service. All great. Loved the bathroom products too (always a bonus when travelling!). Beds were huge and it was easy to relax in and out of the rooms. A great escape from Jodhpur streets when the touting got a little much.
We also received an email post stay from the staff with photos from Diwali celebrations which we just thought was 200% for customer service!
A small tip ... on arrival our driver couldn't take us in and no one knew where it was. (Limited access for cars into the old city.) So we hauled two large suitcases in a tuk tuk and on 2nd try got though a call to the hotel to give our tuk tuk driver instructions (he still had no idea). Perhaps on booking make sure you get a map or clear instructions. A pick up point outside the old city would be a good idea to arrange. It was the night before Diwali so it was rather hectic, our driver was bailed up by police for parking etc to try and help us - any other time I am sure it would be fine. Stay at least 2 nights!

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room with a fort view. Don't go for a ground level unless you have young chil...

We enjoyed our stay of two nights here. The food was excellent. Our ground floor "luxury" room (103) was spacious with a good bathroom and a private garden. This place is off the beaten track and there were some problems with our arrival. You can 't beat the view of the fort. Service was excellent. Would stay here again.

We only had time to stay in this hotel for one night which was really ashame as it was just a great place. The hotel is in the middle of the city with chaos on all sides, but the hotel grounds are sheltered from all of that. The views of the fort are amazing and the food at the restaurant was extremely good. Although the hotel is a bit pricey...you honestly get what you pay for at the RAAS. We highly recommend this hotel...especially for couples.

Yes the 4am morning call to prayers are very loud and do last longer than the hotel says. If we had brought our young children this would have been an issue.

We arrived in Jodhpur in mid afternoon and immediately went to see the fort (which was an amazing site) and following the fort visit we walked through the market where the clock tower is. Because it was just before the Diwali festival, the place was mobbed.
We reached the hotel 30 minutes later and it was like reaching an oasis after being in the desert. The place is gorgeous, built of reddish sandstone, beautiful pool and restaurants with a view of thefort. At night the fort is illuminated and the view from the hotel is breathtaking. We had a room with a private garden and a beautiful bathroom. Service is first class. Meals at the restaurant were great. Overall a terrific experience eventhough we were awakened at 5:00 AM with the call to prayer from the mosq next door

My wife and I just finished a three nights stay at the RAAS. Except for the evening prayers which last a little more than the management proclaims, this hotel was the best hotel we have EVER stayed.
People were wonderful, rooms were beautifully arranged and the food was as good as any place in India.
If you can afford the RAAS and are going to Jodhpur, then this hotel, for the reasons noted above, is as good as it gets!!!

Room Tip: Depends on what you can afford but all rooms will be outstanding no matter the costs. We had a fort...

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
