Amanbagh in Jaipur, India
An oasis among the rugged outcrops of the Aravalli mountain range, Amanbagh is a Rajasthani retreat informed by Mughal style. The countryside surrounding Amanbagh 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. Just 90 minutes from Jaipur, the Bengal tiger sanctuary of Sariska National Park is a short drive away.
Evoking the palatial grandeur of the Mughal era, Amanbagh’s elegant Suites and Pavilions feature lofty ceilings within domed cupolas and regal vaulted entrances. Marble finishes are highlighted by intricate wooden screens, while Mughal arches frame the bed on its raised plinth. Private courtyards or terraces open to the sights and sounds of the lush garden surroundings.
Our dining facility is open to guests and non-residents. The regal, high-ceilinged Restaurant, looking out over the tree-shaded pool, serves seasonal menus that are centered on the harvest from the resort’s 8,000-square-metre organic gardens. Traditional Rajasthani dishes mix with the chefs favorites from across India, all of which can be tailored to suit individual tastes, to a backdrop of local musicians performing Indian folk and popular songs. 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.

Reviews for Amanbagh
An oasis amongst the Aravalli mountain range. Majestically built Mughal architecture. Surrounded with Rich Heritage of Ajabgarh, the most haunted place Bhangarh. Located near Jaipur and Alwar and soaked in luxury something expected of Rajasthan. You wont expect a palace until you are there, within village it is a big big property .. locals can be reached out easy. This place sets the bar so highâ€¦ROYAL feels, spacious spotlessly clean impeccable rooms (COURTYARD HAVELI SUITE, AMANBAGH). Private courtyards etc. will force you to stay, relax and enjoy the property to fullest. The entrance in itself is grand and one is further exploited by a traditional welcome. The property looks magnificient both during the day and night topped with musicians playing flute, table etc. Visit it during Monsoon â€“i.e. August- Aravalis are a treat this time. The view of majestic mighty mountains while you swim is something you ll hold until later. They have varied activities indoor games, spa, nearby sightseeing among others. Food- Freshly cooked quickly served fingerlicious food and drinks sare served from inhouse produce. No lavish dining, but a chef at your service. I like it that way. And their brownies are so so amazing. Aman family certainly puts customer service at top. And everything from their crockery, to blankets and welcome note + small gifts by your bed is impeccable. You â€˜d wish to pack up everything, but all you can carry is just memories. Everything is perfect in its own sense. We surely wished we could stay longer specially after a more beautiful heart touching farewell by the management. Indulge yourself in their SPA for more exotic experience. Everyone and everything just touches your heart. In short, come here to be spoilt in royalty.

We recently spend 3 nights here as part of a Rajasthan trip. The property is located in a rural area and was a welcome relief after Jaipur. A personal welcome and farewell are provided by the management team. The room was palatial (Garden Haveli) well appointed and spotlessly clean. The property facilities include 2 pools which were particularly nice as the property was quiet so we often had these to ourselves. The grounds are spacious and are an oasis of calm. Monkeys are sometimes to be seen and I enjoyed watching them at dawn one morning from the terrace.Food is very good indeed and having toured the garden with the Chef the commitment to delivering excellence with the use of self grown produce where possible is clear. Everything we had was good and was topped off by a rooftop private dinner, complete with multiple candles and floral arrangements on the floor made at some considerable effort out of flower petals. An illustration of the level of service here is that having asked for the details of the dishes that we had in the banquet I was also given the recipes. We enjoyed a number of local activities which are guided by members of hotel staff who grew up in the local community. These included the evening temple visit, a trip to Bhangargh, an evening tour of the surrounding villages and a morning nature walk. These were all enjoyable but also very informative and do show the reality of rural life in this part of India. That said it is clear that the hotel has delivered clear benefit to the local area and indeed many of the staff have been with the hotel since inception. In summary, this is without doubt a luxury property but it also provides the right degree of personal service to lift it above the normal. We will be back and will also be looking at the rest of the Aman portfolio.

Where do I begin? This hotel is quite simply - fabulous. From the moment the driver collects you from the airport to the moment you are begrudgingly returned you are spoiled like never before, their service is in another level! On arrival at the hotel the staff are warm and friendly, always going that extra mile for you and really do make the hotel such a special place. The rooms are spacious, clean, impeccably designed and utterly luxurious. The rooms are the perfect blend of old and new with great attention to detail and homage to Indian design. The surrounding area is beautiful and Sita Ran is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to showing you the areas and taking you on any one of the incredible experiences on offer. The cow dust tour is must as is a visit to Bhangarh along with a tour around the hotels impressive kitchens and garden - never will you taste such fresh naan. The food at the hotel is great with a wide selection of both Western and Indian dishes plus if you're staying more than a few days the chefs are happy to cook up any special requests I'm told (we didn't have any as we're delighted with the menu choices but it's great to have the option). Waiter are kind and considerate and always on hand to make recommendations. Amanbagh really is a very special hotel and a firm favourite in our family (and we travel a lot). I really cannot recommend this place enough. For those who haven't experienced rural India, you really must and Amanbagh really is a truly magical place to enjoy that rural India experience.

We visited Rajasthan for the first time and started our trip at the luxurious and lush Amanbagh. We debated about staying at an Aman for fear of not being in touch with the local mood and atmosphere (although welcome to being cocooned in luxury). However, the overall experience was exceptional. Aman hotels do a great job at balancing local flavour and luxury travel and we felt the hotel offered a perfect balance between intimate resort and feeling a part of the community. The staff was exceptionally professional and authentically friendly. Our suite was spectacular, enormous and comfortable. The food was refined, but authentic and our first night we were treated to a special dining experience surrounded by flower petals and candles. I would highly recommend taking some of the guided excursions and day trips. The enormous jade marble pool (more of lake) set in perfectly manicured grounds is a haven to end your day. We continued on for another 10 days in Rajasthan and loved every experience, however we can't wait to return to Amanbagh. This was a true lay special voyage. Please note we travelled Feb 2016 so I am writing this review quite late
