01 ALILA FORT BISHANGARH
Perched on top of a granite hillock in the midst of the Aravalli Range in Jaipur District, Alila Fort Bishangarh was originally built during Rajasthan’s royal era as an outpost guarding the kingdom of Jaipur against invaders from the north. Having long outlived its original purpose, the owners and Alila undertook the immense task of breathing new life into the dilapidated fort almost a decade ago. Reincarnated into a boutique resort and yet maintaining its stark sanctity, the all-suite Alila Fort Bishangarh boasts rooms designed for quiet indulgence. Each one is individually created to capture stunning views, with spacious interiors elegantly furnished with large bay windows and day-beds, expansive bathrooms with footed bathtubs, and luxury bedding and room amenities. While it is the perfect base from which to explore Jaipur’s innumerable tourist attractions, do make time for Spa Alila, carved out between granite rocks in the old dungeon, offering a unique setting for relaxation.
