Hotel Buzz: Design Hotels Includes Indian RAAS

Like elegant and grand 300-year-old mansions? Who doesn't? Design Hotels, certainly does as they have scooped up RAAS, a one-of-a-kind property located in the heart of Jodhpur, India.

The 39-room mansion-turned-hotel is made up of three restored 18th-century buildings, combined with four new buildings to create a royal India getaway experience. We love the modern touches in this historic property, from the solar-heated cast-iron bathtubs to the Serena Spa.

The Darikhana restaurant and Baradari Cafe both offer traditional Rajasthan specialties, as well as continental food. The resort also has a spacious inner courtyard that is filled with terraced gardens and an infinity pool.
