Without a doubt MehrangarhFort is the site to see in Jodhpur and it is worth making a day of it. Though it’s open from 9 to 5, the fort itself is best to see first thing in the morning, when it’s coolest, maybe after some sunrise yoga on the rooftop of Baradari. The walk up is ten or fifteen minutes winding uphill, so front office can always arrange a tuk-tuk. Once you get there we highly recommended getting an audio guide with your museum ticket (600Rs). The history is simply fascinating, a blend of elephant battles, Mughal sieges and political machinations. The fort is in such good condition because Jodhpur’s royal family lived there until the 1950s! Indeed the fort museum has a beautiful collection of the families’ most extravagant paintings, palaquins and even cribs, which continued to be used well into the twentieth century. From the top rooms of the museum the view of Jodhpur is incredible, so bring your cameras (the camera fee is worth it).The fort’s shop is well curated and is the source of some lovely books and paintings and, should the mood takes you, the palmistry shop is always well-received.
A quick tuk-tuk ride away from the RAAS is the oldest (and bluest) heart of Jodhpur. The blue houses were traditionally owned by members of the Brahmin caste, who painted their houses with indigo. Now everyone has taken up the practice, as it is thought to cool houses and repel insects, and blue has become Jodhpur’s signature colour. The best way to explore the winding (and wholly illogical) streets of Jodhpur is to get completely lost, which is inevitable at some point. If that’s not your scene, why not try a walking tour of the old city. There is so much more to see than just blue houses; the town is a jumble of old and new and the fun is in spotting stunning detailing, finding tiny courtyards, hidden temples, mosques and untouched havelis in the middle of the buzz of the city. In spotting an ancient Deodi entrance to a new ordinary house, an intricately carved over-hanging Jharokha window-balcony, an exquisite Jaali frieze in the famous rose-red sand-stone, a Chowk square blessed by a 300 year old sacred Peepul tree, the crumbling remnants of an elegant red sand-stone wall. In fact, the entire old city was completely walled in till the 1950s with the six monumental Pol gates closing up from dusk to dawn. The walls have all but been absorbed; the gates still stand.
It is another amazing half day trip located a 40km (1 hour) drive away. We wouldn't advise that complete beginners book this riding experience as it typically lasts between 2 and 3 hours. Efficient guides are provided and the routes wind through beautiful Rajasthani countryside and include views over the nearby Thar Desert. This is a fun and relaxing way to enjoy an outdoor adventure alone or with the whole family. These trips are subject to availability and are often only possible during the period between August and April. Therefore please inform RAAS if you are interested and they will be more than happy to make some enquiries and arrange a bespoke experience for you.
For those looking for the peace and quiet of a village outside Jodhpur, our excursions to Osian are perfect. We can arrange half-day trips to the town, an oasis in the Thar Desert, which is about an hour and a half’s journey away. Osian has some of Rajasthan's oldest Hindu and Jain temples, which are well worth the visit alone. The Sachiya Mata Temple overlooks the town centre from its hilltop position, but can't compare with the nearby Mahavira Jain Temple (10Rs), which is well-maintained and has myriad alcoves and 28 pillars radiating out from its beautifully carved central shrine. Wander from here around the other temples, which have some interesting features; look out for the projecting stone elephants of the Peeplaj Temple
Camel treks are very popular at Osian, and these trips are best done in the afternoon, as the day cools. Though trips can be a little cheesy at times, the experience is great and sunset dinners on the dunes are unmissable. Traditional folk dances also happen in the village, and are a great spectacle. Speak to the concierge, who can organise everything for you, though prices for camel treks will vary with the season and can be difficult to do in monsoon periods.
Cookery courses are hugely popular with families, we can open up our kitchens to you and our head chef will help you craft a set of recipes for you to cook and then devour for dinner. A really fun way to spend an afternoon, learn about local Rajasthani delicacies and get a sneaky look behind the scenes at the RAAS. In fact, our head of food and beverage also loves to arrange culinary tours; he’ll take you around the grain, spice, vegetable and pulse markets, showing you where all the food at our restaurants is sourced and giving you a taste of how fresh your dinner is! It is a lovely way to explore the city, accompanied by an old hand who knows all where all the best food is to be found.
Flying fox is a repeated favourite with children, although there is a height requirement, which it’s good to check beforehand to avoid disappointment. For a spot of shopping, try Sambhali Boutique, who have a beautiful range of brightly coloured and embroidered stuffed animals. Better still, everything in the shop, including beautiful jewellery, is produced by rural Rajasthani women’s groups, and helps funds female empowerment projects in the most poverty-stricken parts of the state.
Serving breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily, Baradari offers a selection of international dishes with a Thai and Mediterranean focus. Enjoy organic, home-grown salads and herbs as you relax on the terrace and admire the view.
RAAS’ Indian restaurant serves traditional north Indian recipes each evening. These fragrant dishes sizzle with the aromas of hand-ground Old Delhi spices, specially selected from a 200-year-old shop hidden in the warren of Old Delhi. All salads and herbs are organic and home-grown right here in RAAS

Pass through Mughal style architecture; under the gold domed roof, past elephants, water bodies and into the refreshing ambience of the Bellevue Restaurant at The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra. Naturally lit through large windows, sparkling with spotlights and bespoke glass panels, Bellevue is furnished with long sofa seating and intimate tables upholstered in vibrant turquoise leather. Vintage black and white photographs of Agra's Mughal monuments adorn the walls, while dark sandstone and white marble tile the floors. It is well know that the Mughal emperors were patrons of lavish food. Akbar had very extravagant food habits, Aurangzeb preferred vegetarian cuisine, Babur's kitchen displayed central Asian influences, while Humayun preferred Iranian flavours.
Nestled behind carved wooden door panels, waiting to be discovered, Esphahan is punctuated with Mughal style sandstone and marble stacked pillars; a demure, softly lit Indian speciality restaurant, subtly adorned with hand painted wall frescoes and tasteful Mughal inspired designs. Candles glow upon intimate table arrangements and a traditional musician plays soft, live music upon the stage. The fine dining menu features recipes passed down from the Mughal emperors' kitchens and inspired by their adventures on the Northern frontiers: perfectly marinated kebabs, slow-cooked to enhance subtle flavours, with spices specially blended to suit individual guests' palates, rich Mughal curries and soft Indian flat breads, handmade by the tandoori chefs and served piping hot on traditional, burnished metal plates.
Located on the ground floor of The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra, The Lounge is a charming space to visit in the early morning, afternoon or late at night. Guests can enjoy picture-perfect moments as they bear witness to the play of light and shadows upon the Taj Mahal at different times of the day, without leaving the comfort of the hotel. The lounge is brightly lit from above by a magnificent crystal chandelier hanging from a Mughal style, gold domed ceiling, and is filled with natural light that flows in through large windows that frame the Taj Mahal view. The interior is tastefully decorated with handpicked brass figurines that sit upon ornate gold fretwork shelves, and is bright with sparkling mirrors and vibrant turquoise washed wood.
The Oberoi Amarvilas is home to the only bar in Agra that has uninterrupted Taj Mahal views. From the large windows that naturally light this relaxing space, guests can see the world famous tribute to eternal love in its full splendour. For those interested in an alternate aspect, behind The Bar is an oil canvas depicting the layout of the Taj Mahal. The comprehensive bar menu includes classic Martinis, single malts, American whisky, gins, rums, tequilas, cognacs, champagne cocktails, classic cocktails, Oberoi signature cocktails and mocktails, Oberoi signature iced teas and speciality coffees, all served to perfection from noon until midnight.
