Amanbagh is the second Amanresort to open in Rajasthan and complements the Aman in India experience. Set within a walled oasis, the resort echoes the region's Moghul architecture and provides the opportunity to witness first hand the traditions and culture of rural India. Amanbagh sits in isolation amidst the arid Aravalli Hills near Alwar in northern India. The region is rich in early Hindu history, dating to the dawn of Hindu civilization; awash with legend, the epic Mahabharata tells of the five Pandavas brothers who spent their last years in exile within a few miles of the resort, over two millennia ago. In the more recent past, the area was dominated by a group of warrior clans, the Rajputs, who controlled this region of India for nearly 1000 years. Raided repeatedly over time by Moghul armies, it was finally conquered in the 17th Century by the Emperor Shah Jahan, the famed builder of the Taj Mahal. Amanbagh lies within a walled compound that was once used by the Maharajah of Alwar to site his mobile hunting camps in search of the elusive tigers known to roam the nearby hills. Long since abandoned, the trees and vegetation continue to thrive due to a reliable water supply drawn from an adjacent lake. The resort is every bit a modern day "palace" conceived in the present, but humbly paying homage to the traditional architecture and design that has prevailed throughout the past.

The resort comprises a main building that rises over three levels. On the first level is the arrival area that leads to the reception hall and onto a shaded court, bordered on one side by the Dining Room and on the other, by the Lounge. Rising from the reception area is a sweeping staircase that leads to the Library and an outdoor terrace. Two external staircases lead to the Roof Terrace that is elevated above a canopy of trees and provides sweeping views over the surrounding landscape. Beyond the main building is a swimming pool, informal dining area and wading pool, all set within landscaped grounds. There are four categories of accommodation at Amanbagh. Courtyard Haveli Rooms (8) are located on the ground level of two, two-storey structures on either side of the swimming pool. Each Courtyard Haveli Room features a king bed, separate living area, bathrooms filled with natural light, sound system and personal bar. The internal living space is 85 square metres and the external, private courtyard and terrace area measures 50 square metres. Garden Haveli Rooms (8), located on the ground level, are distinguished by private balconies that overlooks a garden. Terrace Haveli Rooms (8) are located on the upper level and boast private terraced courtyards, each with an outdoor dining area, daybed and two sun loungers. Inside, a sitting area is fitted with a day bed, two armchairs, sound system, personal bar and a writing desk. The bedroom offers a king size bed and a large natural light-filled bathroom with bathtub and separate dressing room. The internal living space is 85 square metres and the external terrace measures 80 square metres. In addition, the resort offers sixteen Pool Pavilions that are located on the perimeter of the resort and offer their own private swimming pool and spacious garden.
