The majestic surrounds of the 14th century Fort Barwara provide the setting for Six Senses’ signature Rajasthan venture, a lovingly restored complex which includes ornate temples, two palaces and imposing fort walls. The grandeur of the fort can be appreciated throughout the hotel as you contemplate the vaulted courtyards, elaborately corniced arches and remnants of brightly painted frescoes. The courtyards and dome-roofed chambers also provide the backdrop for the hotel’s wealth of dining venues, their offerings ranging from Mediterranean and Pan-Asian fusion cuisine, traditional Rajasthani specialities and health focused menus employing ingredients from the fort’s organic gardens.
As you would expect from a Six Senses property, the spa and wellness offering at the hotel is first class. Pampering treatments take place in the serene setting of the Zanana Mahal, and a wealth of restorative options draw upon the influences of Ayurveda and other traditional Eastern medicines. Specialised programmes include sleep consultations, guided detox, biohacking and private yoga tuition.
At the end of another memorable day in rural Rajasthan, retire to one of hotel’s 48 suites, which offer views of either the fort wall and inner gardens, the village of Barwara or out to the Aravali Range. Particularly alluring are the Aravali View Suites with their enclosed private gardens, and the Terrace Suites offering a hot tub on the rooftop terrace. For the utmost in Maharaja opulence, the Raja Man Singh Suite features a private circular pool built into the fort tower.
