Description

Sitting in the center of the magnificent Ahhichatracharh Fort, once known as the "abode of queens", the Ranvas is one of India's most unique hotels.

The 500 year old fort itself is a sight to behold, sprawling, largely free of tourists and in superb condition due to years of painstaking restoration by the Maharaja of Jodphur. With interior design a and rooms that have featured in Conde Naste, Tatler and Vogue, this is a hotel getting a lot of attention and rightly so. Rooms are essentially in private "Havelis" (merchants houses) with large beds, en suite bathrooms and sit outs.

There is a large pool and guests can either wander the fort themselves or ask for a member of hotel staff to take them on a tour.

Nagaur is also home to the famous Sufi Festival which takes place annually each February.

Accommodation

21 rooms with a mix of twin and double bedded rooms. Categories: Deluxe Single, Deluxe Queen, Deluxe King or Suite and combinations of all rooms are to be found in each haveli. If traveling as a group of friends, it’s ideal to take over your own, private haveli which will accommodate groups of varying sizes.

Facilities

Ranvas has two excellent restaurants to choose from, a large swimming pool 700sq m (unheated), Internet access in public areas, WIFI available in the main courtyard, a TV lounge/sitting room, Baby-sitting service & spa treatments are available in rooms (spa being developed)

Location & Directions

Nagaur, Rajasthan

When to go

Rajasthan is known as the desert state. It is largely hot and dry throughout the year, making it a great destination to get away from European winters.

Summer in Rajasthan extends from April to June. It is s the hottest season, with temperatures ranging from 32 degree C to 45 degree C, so not ideal for travel, although early April is a good time to get cheaper rates if you dont mind the temperature in the high 30s. In western Rajasthan the temperature may reach at high as 45 degree C, particularly in May and June so we'd suggest avoiding Jaisalmer and the Thar Desert at this time.

The second season - technically the "Monsoon" (although in reality Rajasthan never receives much rainfall) extends from July to September. The temperature drops slightly, and humidity increases. 90% of the rain Rajasthan can expect occurs during this period. Lakes and rivers will be higher from mountain run-off and flowers and grasses come to life, bringing added color to the landscape.

The Post-monsoon period is from October to November. The average maximum temperature is 33 degree C to 38 degree C, and the minimum is between 18 degree C and 20 degree C. The official "season" for hotels in Rajasthan starts in October. It’s a great time to travel - warm and sunny during and perfect for exploring and relaxing.

The fourth season is "winter", and runs from December to March. With day time temperatures still in the high 20's during the day this a very popular time to travel. Hotels are at the their busiest over the Christmas and new year period. Be aware though that December and January can have very cool mornings and evening and we suggest taking some warm clothing. Whilst temperatures in the desert areas are always hot in the daytime, they become some of the coolest areas of the state once the sun goes down. It’s also fairly standard to expect some fog in the major cities of Northern Rajstasthan and Delhi in December and January.
