Alila to reopen 230-year-old fort in Rajasthan

Dramatic Alila Fort Bishangarh to welcome guests from February 2017

Scheduled to welcome its first guests in February 2017, Alila Fort Bishangarh will be positioned on a peak in the Aravalli hills, with 360-degree views of the Rajasthani landscape. The building is surrounded by original two-metre thick stone walls with turrets.

Once inside, the luxury hotel will feature just 59 suites, all with large openable windows, bathtubs and day beds. There are four suite categories and 22 different layouts. F&B options at the hotel include an indoor restaurant, outdoor grill, a lounge and a bar with a “cigar and cognac turret”, while other facilities include a spa, a large banqueting hall and a conference room.

Outside the hotel walls, at the bottom of the hill, lie banqueting lawns, a swimming pool and terrace, another bar, a fitness centre, children’s clubs and an organic garden.

“The quest in the preservation of this ancient warrior fort inspired the creation of a world-class boutique resort for guests to appreciate the beauty of the Aravalli hills,” Alila said in a statement. “The project grew out of a love for the heritage of the building and the surrounding landscape, with sustainability as a core commitment.

“The original fort has been left intact and much care has been given to the reconstruction of new residential areas to ensure it is everything a modern-day Maharaja or Maharani could wish for and more,” it added. Alila Fort Bishangarh will become the company’s second property in India, following the Alila Diwa Goa which opened in 2010.
