Amanbagh’s Shanti Experience: Explore Rajasthan, India
January 26, 2007By: Mary Winston Nicklin
Amanbagh

Named the "Best Resort" in Travel and Leisure's Second Annual Design Awards (2006), Amanbagh is set within a walled oasis, high in the Aravalli Hills of Rajasthan, India. A contemporary sanctuary, Amanbagh embraces the history of Rajasthan's dramatic frontier with echoes of the region's Moghul architecture. This is the perfect spot to experience firsthand the traditions and culture of mythical Rajasthan. Operated by the world's top luxury hotel group (according to Zagat, anyway), Amanbagh is as opulent and plush as to be expected of Amanresorts's luxury boutique hotels worldwide. Nestled within a lush oasis of palm, eucalyptus and fruit trees, Amanbagh is an architectural delight of domed cupolas, inner courtyards, and fountains, designed in pink marble and sandstone. The resort boasts 24 haveli suites and 16 pool pavilions, a 33 meter swimming pool, 12 meter wading pool, lounge, roof terrace, library, gym, boutique, gallery, and two excellent restaurants. Guests enjoy Yoga sessions and spa treatments including massages, scrubs, facials and healing Ayurvedic remedies. Nearby activities include trekking, boating, horse riding, camel safaris, and cultural tours by jeep to traditional villages, forts, temples and Moghul ruins scattered throughout the surrounding hills and valleys. Experience Amanbagh's mystical aura with a three-night Shanti Experience, which includes elegant accommodations in a haveli suite, a complimentary Indian head or foot massage, and a half-day excursion to the Aravalli Hills. The Shanti Experience starts at $1,440 for a Courtyard Haveli Suite; valid until April 30, 2008. Three night minimum stay required.
