An ancient fort meets modern luxuryBishangarh, India

Those who’ve travelled around Rajasthan will tell you that around every bend in the road you’ll see an ancient fort. This, after all, was the land where local tribes fought off invaders and each other for centuries. This April, it won’t be that you rock up to one of these mighty structures, take a few pictures and move on. Alila Hotels and Resorts is converting a 230-year-old fort into a luxury hotel, with 59 suites, a wellness centre, pool, four restaurants and a juice bar. Like all Alila properties, there will also be an on-site concierge team organising guest activities, from culinary expeditions to cultural journeys. Plus, the hotel is just an hour from the Pink City of Jaipur.
