Before my friend’s wedding in Udaipur, India, a few friends, my mom, husband, and I went to the Aman-i-Khás Resort on the fringes of Ranthambore National Park. The third Aman I’ve been to–this exceeded expectations and I hope to return. After driving through a village, you turn off onto a dirt road to a walled courtyard. After stepping inside, you are welcomed by breathtaking views of the rocky Aravalli hills.

Opened in November 2003, the resort was designed by architect Jean-Michel Gathy from Denniston International in Malaysia.

Perhaps the epitome of glamping, Aman-i-Khás consists of ten luxury tents plus three facilities (dining, lounge, and spa) tents.

Each bedroom tent includes a sitting area (where hot chocolate, tea, and morning biscuits greet you with your morning wake-up call) and three “rooms” for sleeping, bathing and dressing.

Soaking in the tub after a successful safari is bliss.

Guests congregate at the Fireplace each evening for drinks and friendly ride comparisons.
