Observing the growing demand for luxurious travel in India, the Accor group has decided to bring its most iconic and glamorous brand of hotels, Raffles, to the country.&nbspThe brand is now setting foot in India with a classic 101 room luxury resort in Udaipur next year and a 55 suite complex in Jaipur, two years after.

Raffles Udaipur is going to be set on a private island in the Udai Sagar lake with its most signature facilities like the 1,100 square meter Raffles Spa, the writers' bar and also private pools and a rooftop restaurant. All the rooms will obviously be lake-facing and even have the view of the spectacular scenery with low hills and also of a  400-year-old temple. There will be close proximity to all major attractions and the airport.

The Raffles hotel to open in the Pink City in 2022 will be a set of secluded private residences and courtyards adjacent to the Fairmount Jaipur. The location for this property, too, is well within reach of the popular tourist attractions in the region such as the Amer Fort, the Nahargarh fort and the Jal Mahal.

S&eacutebastien Bazin, Chairman and CEO Accor, said &ldquoWith our strategic partners, we look forward to providing an oasis of calm and charm in two of the most incredible destinations in India.&rdquo&nbspThe Accor group is the world leader in the hospitality industry, and out of the 4,800 hotels, resorts, and residences across 100 countries, it owns properties in India too.

Guess where in Rajasthan we would be visiting soon
