No. 19 Oberoi Rajvilas, Jaipur, India
Channel your inner Maharaja at this majestic but modern 32-acre resort. Standard rooms have four-poster beds and sunken marble baths, while air-conditioned luxury tents are laden with Burmese teakwood floors and claw-footed tubs. Come evening, head to the Indian specialty restaurant Rajmahal for traditional tandoori skewers and feast your eyes on gold leaf frescoes. At the hotel’s spa, treatments highlight indigenous rituals and specialty baths using rose water, milk and marigolds.
