With such a perfect setting in the old part of the haveli, this is the ideal spot for such a glorious spa. The first of its kind in India, ila only spas are extraordinary soulful spaces where therapists trained in mindfulness and heart consciousness pave the way for transformative healing.
Resonating excellence at every level, they help guests to reconnect with themselves, others, and the world around them – combining the purest of intentions with the highest levels of natural and ethical integrity to create success both commercially and authentically.
After a gruelling but gripping day exploring the mighty Meherangarh Fort and the maze of streets in Jodhpur’s old city, zip-wiring around the fort, exhaustive shopping, desert safaris or just the rigours of relaxing by a pool, a few hours in Raas’ divine new spa will sort you out and restore your energies for the next round of excitement. It really is the icing on the cake for this already near perfect hotel – one really wants for nothing now.
Within the spa at RAAS Jodhpur, marma massage, yogic healing, and energy work combine with the region’s most profound natural products. The heavenly RAAS Rose Bliss signature treatment captures the romantic exoticism of Jodhpur, combining nurturing Indian damascena rose otto with the sweet headiness of jasmine in a scrub, massage and facial. Intensely soothing and moisturising, it helps balance the hormones, alleviate stress and promote feelings of deep calm.
