Rajasthan is a state rich in culture and packed with incomparable treasures; exploring it is a full on experience, so a rejuvenating stop at the Six Senses Fort Barwara, an opulent outpost in the Aravalli hills, is a must. Housed in a majestic 14th-century fort, behind the sandstone ramparts luxury reigns supreme with, like all Six Senses properties, sustainability at its heart.
The 48 suites benefit from views of the inner garden and fort walls. Aravalli hills or over the village of Chanth Ka Barwara, from their spacious terraces, the decadent décor within a modern, wholly blissful take on the traditional Rajasthani style. Each comes with yoga mats to allow guests to join in the daily ritual of sunrise and sunset salutations.
In the fort’s former Zanana Mahal (Women’s Palace), is the tranquil cocoon of the spa, where there are both strenuous and spiritual treatments and activities to indulge in. You can also practice mindfulness at the yoga pavilion or meditation temple or simply lounge on a daybed around the large pool, admiring those gorgeous views.
Three restaurants serve food that spans local flavours to international classics, many of the ingredients sourced from local farmers and the hotel’s own organic gardens. A tipple from the extensive wine and cocktail list of The Viewing Gallery, where intricate archways frame the hills lit by the setting sun, is the perfect start to the evening.
