Ranvas (Nagaur) - Near Jodhpur / Rajasthan
WWithin the magnificent Ahhichatragarh Fort
Nagaur Fort, lies the 18th century residences of the sixteen
ranis of Maharaja Bakhat Singh of Jodhpur. Part of an ambitious
20 year plan to restore the Fort, they’ve been meticulously
revived to offer elegant and inviting accommodation.
Now one of the most well preserved queenly residences in
India, Ranvas is a heritage property in the purest sense, giving
its guests the chance to experience a living legacy and a regal
residence from which to explore Ahhichatragarh.
During the 18th century, Bakhat Singh, the ruling maharaja of
the time, sought to create a refuge from the external troubles
of warfare and politics. The result was a pleasure palace which,
still today, awakens the senses through its art and aesthetics -
from the sound of fountains and peacocks to the sight of vivid
fresco paintings and perfectly constructed geometric gardens.
Each of the ten refurbished havelis has been named after
one of the ranis and has two or three bedrooms with ensuite
bathrooms and a private courtyard. The suites on the first floor
open on to a private terrace. At present Ranvas comprises 27
rooms in total, a swimming pool and two charming restaurants.
Ranvas is magical - a regal retreat as it was originally intended, sitting in stark contrast to its desert surroundings

There are 27 rooms spread through 10 havelis. Each haveli has two
