Raas, Jodhpur, India
Jodhpur’s first boutique hotel comprises three new buildings in addition to the original four; a rare and charming complex that reflects in many ways the Walled City itself. Indeed, with its sensational vistas, different styles and angles, a central water body, square and garden; and an all pervasive warm “organic feel” RAAS is a microcosm of the city. And…like virtually every home here, almost every room in the hotel enjoys the most spectacular view of Mehrangarh Fort.
The new buildings are modern and contemporary in their use of space and light and context; and yet grounded in tradition. Jodhpur’s red sandstone unites the new with the old, even as modern designs and patterns in its dressing and carving add an exciting and fresh dimension to the region’s age-old stone carving industry. This seamless harmony between the old and the new, the modern and the traditional, the familiar and the surprising…extends to all aspects of RAAS; and it is everywhere, and at all times, as comforting as it is inspirational.
