Boutique Rajasthan... Romance, Culture & Stylish Hotels in North India

19 days from £4,685 per person

This itinerary features in our Top Ten Romantic Holidays.

Our Boutique Rajasthan tour is an ideal option if you value intimacy, are interested in days relaxing in the wilderness, wish to visit quaint rural settlements, but still want to take in the most evocative sights of Rajasthan; a holiday for true romantics at heart. Start with the beautiful lake city of Udaipur staying at the fantastically located Amet Haveli, followed by the pretty settlement of Narlai where your accommodation blends perfectly with the setting. The pomp and majesty of Jodhpur follows where you’ll stay at the luxurious Raas hotel.

The less frequented town of Nagaur is next with the simplistic yet charming Ranvas heritage property. The impressive fortified desert city of Jaisalmer looms large and here you’ll stay in the fort itself at the simple Killa Bhawan hotel. Mihir Garh, located in the desert is a remarkable property and Chhatra Sagar, with its stunning lakeside camp is equally memorable. The trip is rounded off with a three night stay in the wonderful Samode Palace just outside Jaipur. Agra and the Taj Mahal, or even a jaunt to try to spot a tiger in Ranthambore, can easily be added to this tour.

This is purely a suggested itinerary and can be booked as is, or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own bespoke holiday to IndiaIf you'd like to see similar tours, take a look at our favourite Honeymoons and Epic Journeys, as well as our Family Holidays in Asia collection.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
Bill Bryson

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
