Amanbagh sits in isolation amidst the arid Aravalli Hills near Alwar in northern India. The region is rich in early Hindu history, dating to the dawn of Hindu civilization. The topography of the region consists of sandy plains interspersed with craggy hills and knolls, in stark contrast to the setting of a lush oasis.The resort is every bit a modern day “palace,” conceived in the present, but humbly paying homage to the traditional architecture and design that has prevailed throughout the past. Take the opportunity to explore this verdant region, traveling by camel or jeep.
Set within a walled oasis, the resort echoes the region's Moghul architecture and provides the opportunity to witness first hand the traditions and culture of rural India. Guests can explore the countryside by camel cart, horseback, elephant, bicycle, jeep, or boat, and can visit ancient mosques, forts, temples and ruins. The holy Narayani Mata Temple is only a 10-minute trip away, and the hotel can arrange everything from shopping daytrips to Jaipur to sunset safaris.
