Set in the rugged terrains of the Aravalli Hills, just a few hours from Jaipur, this luxury resort near Delhi may remain camouflaged with its sand-coloured interior but hide unparalleled luxury within its spacious suites and pavilions, complete with a private swimming pool and sunlit courtyards. While Amanbagh's palatial facade borrows inspiration from Mughal architecture, its interiors are drenched in warm tones and further enhanced by meticulously crafted wooden interiors and plush textiles.

In the artistically rich town of Shekhawati's Alsisar village, the 17th-century Alsisar Mahal continues to shine like a gemstone at the centre of a crown. The gorgeous colourful frescos, sprawling gardens, regal dining arcades and palatial rooms make you feel like royalty as soon as you set foot into it. Add to that their top-notch hospitality, with friendly staff regaling you with interesting stories from around and promptly tending to your needs, and you will find out why Alsisar Mahal has become a sought-after escape for travellers. 

If you are an art lover, Alsisar Mahal's bright walls, intricately carved wooden furniture, and wonderful usage of Rajasthan's textile craft for furnishing will enchant you. Apart from the comfortable and spacious rooms, the Alsisar Mahal has many other interesting nooks, such as the all-blue Badal Mahal or the capturing World War II lounge, housing antiques and treasures, including a half-cut US Army Jeep. Evenings are best spent at the Dungeon Bar and Lounge–a dimly lit, low-ceiling room where prisoners of the Palace were kept hidden centuries ago has now been transformed into a speakeasy-like bar. 

In case you want to explore the village (you absolutely must!), the Mahal willingly organises interesting and immersive excursions, such as the fresco trail tour that covers Alsisar's old havelis in search of the legendary frescoes of Shekhawati. For details on tariffs, visit here
