Sneak Peek: Rasa, Jaipur

After a soft opening in April, Devi Resorts’ radical boutique hotel, the Rasa, officially opened in September. Comprising 40 canvas cube-like tents, the grounds spread across the rocky hills outside India’s historic Amer Fort, a 16th-century castle blending Hindu and Mughal elements about 10 miles north of Jaipur. Though the property is immersed in nature, the city of Jaipur is only a 45-minute flight from Delhi. The 500-square-foot tents, which run about $320 per night, feature en suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, satellite television, and private covered patios. A restaurant offers a twist on traditional Indian cuisine and utilizes fresh ingredients from the on-site organic gardens, and guests also can enjoy private alfresco dining near the black pool and bonfire area.
