Tunwar ji ka Jhalra, Makrana Mohalla, Gulab Sagar, Jodhpur
Located inside the ancient walled city, steps from the Mehrangarh Fort, this was once the home of a Rajput aristocrat. Built in the traditional Haveli style, with multiple stories constructed around a courtyard, the original carved stone panels and antique shrines of the thirty-nine suites and common areas, including a breathtaking pool, were carefully preserved during renovation. The elevated position over Jodhpur lends a panoramic view of both the old and new cities. For a complete reset, the Ila Spa at RAAS Jodhpur is an Ayurveda-centered healing retreat. Try the Ky Nye, a treatment meant to balance the five elements (earth, wind, fire, water, and ether), using five essential oils and a combination of massage and acupressure, while crystals and herbal poultices are placed along your meridian energy lines to ease tension.
