I recently stayed at The Raj - a whim with a friend. I was more than pleasantly surprised. The location is gorgeous, the building designed with purpose and while the gold trim might "date it" as other reviews suggest, the quality of material, carpet, etc. surpasses most 4 to 5 star hotels I've stayed at. But of course this is only relevant if you miss the whole point of going to The Raj. It is a place where if you want to respected, provided opportunities to relax, learn and reflect this is it. Your treatments and meals are well organized, leaving plenty of time for you to take part in offered lessons (cooking, yoga, talks) or rest. The treatments are outstanding and do work. I haven't been able to sleep on my back for nearly a year and after their treatments and continued oil baths I am now sleeping better and "on my back". The cleansing also helped me feel like I once was, healthy and happy. I will be returning for a longer stay and in the mean time many of family and friends are going.
In short, The Raj is a place for people that want to learn a new way of being, and for those already aware of Ayurveda it's a place to strengthen their roots. For others who aren't aware or aren't open then The Raj might not be for them.
