Feel like royalty on holiday, book into the new Six Senses Fort Barwara, a three-hour drive from Jaipur. This 14-century fort, which was owned by the Rajasthani royal family, has been turned into a luxury hotel. Within its walled grounds, you’ll find a palace and two temples. Relax in one of the two swimming pools, dine in one of the two restaurants or enjoy an Ayurvedic treatment in what was once the women’s palace and is now a Six Senses spa. Opens autumn/winter 2019.
The team behind the famed Treehouse Hotel are back with another showstopping hotel – the floating Arctic Bath. Possibly your most refreshing getaway yet, the donut-shaped retreat features six hotel rooms, four saunas and a plunge pool at its centre. The boutique hotel is taken inspiration from the log jams that float down the Lule River and it is sure to become a star of Instagram when it launches in 2019.
