Aman-i-khas

RANTHAMBORE, INDIA

“I have dreamed of visiting India for years and this year my husband surprised me with a special birthday trip. It was one of the most magical experiences - I highly recommend it - made all the more perfect by our stay at Aman-i-khas. It is technically a camp, on the borders of Ranthambore National Park, but accommodation is as luxurious as any of Aman’s brick-and-mortar hotels. There are ten ‘tents’ - 108 square-metre structures with six-metre canopies. They are beautifully decorated and can be air-conditioned or heated.

The area used to be the Maharajah of Jaipur’s hunting ground and twice-daily safaris reveal tigers, leopards, hyenas, sloth bears, crocodiles and chital deer, as well as plenty of birdlife in lakes and watering holes. There are also a number of ancient forts nearby that are interesting to visit. The whole camp is incredibly well-equipped with spa, pool and restaurant. Staff are excellent - everyone from our private butler, to the safari guides to the waiters. Our butler even came all the way to Delhi to accompany us on the six-hour train journey and ensure everything went smoothly.”

This made a great romantic trip, but there were also families and the kids seemed awe-struck by the culture and the wildlife.

Tiger sightings are rare, but we were lucky enough to spot one. Unforgettable.
