Ratan Vilas Hotel, Jodhpur
Built in 1920, by Maharaj Ratan Singhji of Raoti, a royal from Jodhpur and one of the finest horsemen and polo players of his time, Ratan Vilas with its imposing yet delicately carved exterior and elegant interiors is a genuine heritage edifice in a sylvan setting.
The mansion, reminiscent of the romance of the bygone era, has been converted into a hotel by Maharaj Bharat Singh, the grandson and R.K. Brijraj Singh, the great grand son of Maharaj Ratan Singhji, with the exception that it still continues to be their residence as well.
