As specialists in private, tailor-made tours of Rajasthan, we love the region’s vibrant colours, the rich history, and the warm people. We’re also partial to its stunning boutique hotels. From luxury desert camps to former royal abodes – we’ve scoured the area for the best boutique hotels in Rajasthan and offer them to you here, in one beautifully charming, though purely suggested tour. With all our trips at Indian Excursions being private and tailor-made, we’ll design every detail around you. So if there’s one or two of our suggested boutique hotels in Rajasthan that you’re not keen on, or if you’d like to add/remove a destination, please don’t let that put you off! Anything and everything you’d like to experience in Rajasthan, we can make it happen, all while staying in fabulous boutique hotels.
This characterful journey kicks off by exploring the bustling capital; from the souk-like bazaars of Old Delhi to the tree-lined colonial avenues of New Delhi. You’d then fly down to Udaipur for a fairy-tale-like stay in an 18th-century fort, followed by a dazzling floating palace in the middle of Lake Pichola (you know the one… the beautiful Taj Lake Palace, one of the world’s most famous luxury hotels, and so dreamy!). After a stop in the delightful village of Narlai, continue to the majestic Blue City of Jodhpur where you can soak up a stunning view of the fort from RAAS; one of our favourite boutique hotels in Rajasthan.
Your boutique sojourn through Rajasthan continues to the remote yet luxurious Mihir Garh, followed by a stay at one of the most quaint and quirky boutique hotels in Rajasthan; Killa Bhawan. Next, two nights in a luxury tent at The Serai will offer an authentic desert experience, before steering off the beaten track to discover the less frequented town of Nagaur, where the charming Ranvas hotel provides an opportunity to stay within the walls of a glorious 12th-century fort. The bejewelled Pink City of Jaipur makes a brilliant ending to our Rajasthan with Boutique Hotels experience. Soak up splendid architecture such as Amber Fort and the Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds), with time to pick up interesting souvenirs in the colourful local markets if you fancy.

Later, check-in to SUJÁN’s The Serai. An oasis in the desert, The Serai offers a truly luxurious experience in Rajasthan. There are 21 tents, though the word ‘tent’ is a bit of a misnomer; each offers a private veranda, a drawing-room, and an en-suite shower room. Combining locally sourced products, such as traditional dhurries (rugs) and Jaisalmer stone tiling, with state of the art technology, The Serai offers all the facilities one would expect of a luxury hotel while remaining at home in the surroundings. You can read more about The Serai here. Similar to Udaipur, if you’d prefer to base yourself at one hotel in Jaisalmer instead of experiencing two, that can certainly be arranged. Another of our favourite boutique hotels to consider on the fringes of the Thar Desert is Samsara.
Our suggested Rajasthan with Boutique Hotels itinerary has been designed purely for your inspiration. We can make any number of tweaks and adjustments to suit your taste better. For example, if you’d like to include a visit to the Taj Mahal, this can easily be slotted in between Jaipur and Delhi. If you’re interested in wildlife, we could add a two-night stay at Ranthambhore National Park to spot Bengal tigers in the wild. Anything and everything you’d like to experience in Rajasthan, we can make it happen. No request is too great or too small. All our tours are private, and tailor-made to complement your taste and interests. In essence, the itinerary described above is just a starting point, and together we can refine it into your ideal Indian experience.
