Aman-i-Khas is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Safari Lodges
Aman-i-Khás is an exclusive wilderness camp set in rugged countryside on the outskirts of Ranthambore National Park, surrounded by the starkly beautiful Aravalli Hills.
The ten luxury sleeping tents echo the rich Mughal travelling tents from a bygone era, each one constructed of canvas, with interior walls and ceilings draped in fine cotton. Each tent is a generous 108 square metres, with a soaring six-metre canopy, and three further rooms for sleeping, bathing and dressing in. The bedroom reflects a rich Mughal style, luxurious and airy, with a king-size bed flanked by twin writing desks. The bathroom includes a shower, soaking tub and separate toilet, and the dressing room contains cupboards and twin vanities. There is also a sitting area outside on the deck. Tents are air-conditioned and can be heated during the chillier months.
There are three other tents at the camp; an intimate dining tent, a lounge tent and spa tent. The dining tent serves up mainly Indian cuisine and a range of Western dishes with fresh vegetables and herbs coming from the camp’s organic kitchen garden. The lounge provides a wide selection of books about Ranthambore, India’s tigers and the history and culture of Rajasthan, whilst the spa has two separate treatment areas, each with twin massage tables. There is also an outdoor traditional step-well swimming pool.
The main focal point of the camp is the large fireplace around which all tents are located. Each evening, guests gather around the outdoor campfire area to relax and talk about the day's animal sightings and events in an informal setting. The camp offers the ultimate levels of understated luxury for those looking for a genuine Indian wildlife experience. The philosophy of the camp is to provide a natural, harmonious environment without modern amenities such as televisions or telephones whilst retaining a luxurious ambiance.
Please note that Ranthambore National Park is closed during the summer, so the camp is not open year-round.
