After years of delays, worldwide the travel industry is waiting with bated breath to see if Fort Bishangarh in Jairpur, India will at last open as a resort – Alila Fort Bishangarh – in the 230-year-old impressive Rajasthan Fort in 2017. No renderings have yet been released of the interiors.
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 and is a unique example of the Jaipur Gharana architecture influenced by both the Mughals and the British. The all-suite resort will feature 59 stately suites with stunning views. Leisure facilities within the fort will include an outpost of Spa Alila, two specialty restaurants, an all-day coffee lounge, a bar and cigar room, wine cellar and library. Down the hill, the public areas will include a pool, pool terrace and juice bar, fitness centre and a ‘Play Soldiers Club’ for children.
