Alila Fort Bishangarh


Jaipur, India

Looking for the spa? Head to the dungeon. That’s where it’s located in this imposing 230-year-old fortress that opened as a boutique hotel last year. Sitting high atop a granite hill in India’s Aravalli Range, an hour’s drive from Jaipur, the structure boasts architecture influenced by the Mughals and the British colonial era. Two-metre-thick, blush-hued exterior walls still have their openings for cannons and guns, while marble floors and stone walls fill the impressive interior. In the 59 rooms, guests enjoy captivating views of the landscape below through windows designed to frame the panorama. And keeping with Alila’s sustainable credentials, everything from light fixtures to textiles and custom furniture was sourced within 100 kilometres of the property.
