Amanbagh, Jaipur, India

Set on the former hunting estate of a maharaja, Amanbagh is a walled, 40-room retreat in northern India’s Rajasthani hills. The palace, contemporized for its opening as a resort in 2005, is a haven of gardens, cupolas, latticed screens, ornate columns, and service befitting royalty. Guests can take yoga and cooking classes; day trips to ancient temples, rural villages, and lakes; and excursions by horseback, camelback, and even elephant-back. A generously sized swimming pool and first-rate spa appease those in search of respite. Shoppers can head to the bustling markets of Jaipur, though Amanbagh’s boutique offers a selection of the area’s finest silverware, Rajasthani jewelry, and textiles. Rajasthani musicians perform nightly sitar serenades during candlelit dinners, which are served poolside, in the dining room, or under the stars on the rooftop terrace. ($600–$1,400) www.amanresorts.com
