Boasting truly magnificent views over Meherangarh Fort and in the heart of the bustling walled city of Jodhpur, it would be hard to beat the chic address of Raas and location is paramount when exploring this vibrant city.
Raas is a 39 room modern luxury hotel made up of four charming 150-year-old buildings built in Jodhpur’s very own ‘rose-red’ sandstone – now fully restored with the recent addition of a modern contemporary wing. It is situated in the prestigious north-eastern quarter of the Walled City, steps away from the Clock Tower. Rooms have balconies and the majority look up onto the vast fortifications of the Meherangarh Fort.
