Amanbagh Resort – Alwar, Rajasthan
An oasis among the rugged outcrops of the Aravalli mountain range, Amanbagh is a Rajasthani retreat informed by Mughal style. Just 90 minutes from Jaipur, the Bengal tiger sanctuary of Sariska National Park is a short drive away.
The countryside surrounding Amanbagh Resort, Rajasthan reveals the ruins of an ancient empire embedded in a starkly beautiful landscape. The 17th-century township of Bhangarh – abandoned just a generation after its completion – sits nearby, as does the centuries-old village, fort and temple of Ajabgarh, which can be reached by foot or camel from the resort. Sariska National Park, home to tigers, jaguars, sambar deer and more, is a short drive away, as is the temple town of Neelkanth, with more than 80 temples encircled on all sides by mountains.
Each of the 37 Suites and Pavilions has a private courtyard or terrace and a deep soaking bathtub carved from green Udaipur marble.
Amanbagh’s soothing holistic spa provides a range of therapies and treatments that soothe body and mind after a long day of exploration, including massages, facials, scrubs and traditional henna art. Set amid the verdant grounds of the resort’s oasis setting, the spa’s highly-skilled team of experts makes use of exclusively prepared skincare products, created only from the purest ingredients.
