Stunning 230-year-old hilltop Rajasthan Fort to become Alila heritage resort
POSTED 23 Dec 2015 . BY Jane Kitchen
Commune Hotels & Resorts will open a heritage property in India next year, the Alila Fort Bishangarh, which will launch in Q4 following the restoration of the 230-year-old Rajasthan Fort.

Positioned on a granite hill in the Arvalli Mountain Range with spectacular 360-degree views, the warrior fort is thought to be the only one of its kind to be converted into a heritage resort. It is a unique example of the Jaipur Gharana architecture, influenced by both the Mughals and the British.

The original fort will remain intact, and the company said it is being careful with the ecological restoration and reconstruction of new residential areas to recreate the courtly flavour of Shapura’s royalty.

The fort features two-meter thick walls with openings for firearms, as well as turrets, known as burjs. A new structure is also being created above and outside the old for to house five styles of royal suites as well as the public areas.

The all-suite resort will feature 59 suites, two restaurants, a bar and cigar room, wine cellar and library, as well as a Spa Alila located on the upper floor of the fort. The spa will include four indoor treatment suites as well as two garden treatment suites, and will feature contemporary interior design and Indian and Southeast Asian treatments.

Down the hill, there will be a pool, fitness centre and Play Soldiers Club for children.

Alila is also opening three hotels in China in 2016, as well as locations in Cambodia and Jakarta, Indonesia.
