I t took 10 years to convert this 700-year-old Rajasthani stronghold into a sanctuary hotel, but global hotelier Six Senses is known for taking a measured approach to its developments. Originally owned by a Rajasthani royal family, this 14th-century fort, located 2.5 hours from Jaipur, underwent significant conservation efforts to restore and preserve palaces and temples that lie within its fortified walls. SIX SENSES FORT BARWARA, RAJASTHAN, INDIA These ancient walls also conceal lush gardens with palm trees and two swimming pools. Nimish Patel and Parul Zaveri led the architecture team at Panika, and Hayley Mitchell of interior architecture and design studio Mitchell & Eades designed the hotel's guest rooms and public areas. Forty-eight suits are furnished in contemporary Rajasthani style with chests bearing classic bone-inlay patterns and beds elegantly draped in traditional gauzy netting. Carved windows and doors evoke centuries of magnificent Indian architecture, and brass door handles, cast in the shape of hands, are reminiscent of ancient religious relics. Suites have views of the Rajasthan countryside or Chauth ka Barwara Mandir Temple. The 30,000-square-foot Six Senses Spa is located within the original women's palace, and several restaurants on property combine regional Rajasthani and pan-Indian cuisine. Rooms from $749.
