Aman-i-Khas, Ranthambhore, India
India’s wilderness has a primal allure, unchanged since the dawn of time. The domain of the majestic Bengal tiger, Ranthambore National Park is starkly beautiful, its green and gold hues the perfect backdrop to Aman-i-Khas. Situated on the threshold of the reserve, this intimate tented camp offers incomparable privacy and Mughal-era romance – each tent an elegant sanctuary beneath its soaring canopy. Daily Jeep safaris seek out the reserve’s wildlife, while back at camp, spa therapies, swimming and dining take center stage. Each tent is assigned an experienced batman to accompany guests into the jungle, along the River Chambal and to cultural sites – all rich material for storytelling come nightfall, when the fire pit glows beneath a starlit sky.

Most Popular Tents
With soaring six-meter-high canopies, elegant interiors, sunken marble bath tubs and custom-made teak furniture, these tents are extremely luxurious. Creamy cotton curtains divide the enormous ‘rooms’ and a private entrance area where tea is served every morning. For added privacy, go for tent number one, which is set furthest away from the main camp.
The sparkling square pool echoes the region’s traditional step wells, ancient irrigation tanks with concentric steps on all sides. Take a dip and then flop onto a shaded sun-lounger.
With safaris, walking tours and camel rides on the menu a suitably robust pair of shoes and trousers are a must but you’ll want something a little more fashion-forward come sun downer time. Remember to add your camera to the kit bag and an extra memory card to hold all those safari snaps.

Beloved all over the world, Indian cuisine is renowned for its use of colorful, fragrant spices, its delicate layering of flavors and its balance between vegetarian and meat dishes. Using local family recipes passed down through the generations, our chefs also offer lighter variations of the classics and a range of international dishes, all of which can be tailored to suit individual tastes. Lit by flickering candles at night, the Dining Tent has one large communal table and several smaller settings, but dinner is just as often served outside beside the roaring fire. Traditional Rajasthani cuisine, inspired by the royal kitchens of the Mughal emperors, and continental dishes are available, and most meals are created using veggies and herbs grown in the camp’s own organic garden.
Afternoon G&Ts and post-dinner whiskies are poured in the Dining Tent and served around the fireplace.
Available around the clock with breakfasts, lunch, dinners and sweet treats delivered directly to your tent.
Centered around a bubbling fountain, the Spa Tent houses two double treatment rooms in which holistic therapies distilled from millennia of experience in the healing arts can be enjoyed. Multi-sensory journeys of traditional Ayurvedic wisdom are offered alongside massages, the gentle healing touch of Reiki and various scrubs, wraps and baths. Outdoor yoga sessions revitalize, and the lounger-lined pool is modeled on the area’s ancient step-wells.
Using a combination of long, symmetrical strokes to soothe the nervous system and warm oil to boost circulation, this traditional Ayurvedic treatment brings relaxation and deep therapeutic benefits to the whole body.
