Jaipur, Rajasthan, India

Awaken to the sound of parakeets, mynahs and sparrows chirruping in a heavenly walled garden, deep in rural Rajasthan. Samode Bagh is the granddaddy of Indian tent camps. The location, in a 250-year-old cloistered paradise created by Rawal Sheo Singh, is unrivalled. Flowering trees shade a Persian-inspired charbagh complex of neatly clipped lawns intersected by fountains, walkways, and marble pavilions.

In the midst of this green oasis sits a rank of splendid old hunting tents, fitted out with block-printed canopy ceilings, four posters and traditional quilted drapes. Order a candle-lit supper of fine local cuisine at wicker seats on the lawns. Or while away the afternoon swimming in a courtyard pool flanked by delicate pierced-stone jali screens.

Our opinion

Set in its own Mughal garden, Samode Bagh promises an unforgettable experience.
