Hotels in India

On the wild plains of Rajasthan— just an hour south of Jodhpur—the Mihir Garh is a palatial fortress hotel with an impressive stable of indigenous Marwari steeds. Take one on a maharajah-worthy journey through the desert or on a staff-guided picnic safari to a Bishnoi tribal village.

Deep within a sprawling fourth-century fort near Jodhpur, 10 mansions that once belonged to a maharajah’s wives have been restored to create one of the region’s most stylish new retreats.

In 2003, Mumbai-based fashion photographer Denzil Sequeira opened up his ancestral compound to paying guests.
