The Aman-I-Khas Hotel is a resort located in the rugged hills of Rajasthan and only about 10 km from the Ranthambore Wildlife Sanctuary. It is only open from October till the end of April, this period coinciding with the best time to view wildlife. Especially designed for the nature enthusiast, this resort also affords those who seek a bit of luxury while situated in the wild to have their dream vacation fulfilled. While staying at this resort, the guest will be housed in luxurious tents, of which 10 are for guests, while the remaining three are for the common area. Each tent covers 108 square meters, so this isn’t like a backyard night out at home! Many of the vegetables for dining are produced on the property itself, redefining the idea of organic food.
Aman-i-Khás is a wilderness camp for travellers wishing to experience the stark natural beauty and rural life of Rajasthan. The property sits on a gentle slope on the fringes of Ranthambore National Park against a backdrop of hills. Native vegetation consisting of tall grasses, scrub and trees surrounds the camp, and a watering hole is situated nearby. The entrance to the camp is via a pathway that leads through high walls, opening onto breathtaking views of the rocky Aravalli hills that undulate through Ranthambore National Park. The camp’s focal point is the outdoor fireplace, an ideal meeting place before or after wildlife safaris into the park, or for star-gazing with a nightcap after dinner. The twice daily safaris provide the opportunity for sighting tigers, leopards, antelope, gazelle and other animals.
Aman-i-Khás features 10 luxury tents identical in style, each set on a raised concrete plinth. They echo the rich Moghul travelling tents of bygone days with ‘rooms’ separated by cotton drapes. Constructed of canvas and supported by a steel frame, with interior walls and ceilings draped in fine cotton, each tent measures 108m². Entry is through a screened area that contains an armchair, dining table and chairs. There is also room to sit outside on the concrete deck. The centre of the tent, with its soaring six-metre canopy, features an oversized daybed ideal for lounging. Opening out from the central area are three sections for sleeping, bathing and dressing. The bedroom area is fitted with a king-size bed flanked by twin writing desks. The bathing area includes a shower, soaking tub and separate toilet, whilst the dressing area contains cupboards with closet space and twin vanities. Each tent is air-conditioned and can also be heated depending on the season and time of day.
The camp serves Indian cuisine and a range of Western dishes. Freshness of produce is ensured as most of the vegetables and herbs are grown in the camp’s organic garden.
The camp’s focal point is the outdoor fireplace, an ideal meeting place before or after wildlife safaris into the park, or for star-gazing with a nightcap after dinner. Surrounded by trees, the step-well is a good spot for bird watching. The region is home to more than 350 unique bird species. Prize predator sightings in the core of the park include tigers, leopards and smaller jungle cats. Chital deer, antelope and hyena can be seen roaming the savannah, while lakes and watering holes are home to the marsh crocodile and prolific birdlife. The Spa Tent has two separate treatment areas, each with two massage beds. Treatments include massages, scrubs and traditional henna art using local herbs and spices. Guests can also experience yoga surrounded by nature.
