The Oberoi Group's hotel in Jaipur, India, broke fresh ground when it opened in 1997, setting new standards for luxury-leisure hotels. The Rajvilas provides a magnificent setting, in which discerning travellers can enjoy 30 acres of orchards, gardens, decorative pools and fountains. The hotel is built with meticulous detail, recreating a traditional Rajasthani Fort setting. A key feature of the landscape is a large lotus-filled pool in which floats an old temple on a centre island. A haveli (or traditional Rajasthani mansion) has been restored to its former beauty and will contain the hotel's world-class spa.
From USD 350 to 1,200 per suite per night.
