Ranvas is boutique in a unique and special sense. Set within a massive fort complex, the expansive Ahhichaatragarh better known as Nagaur Fort is a ground level fort built with a rampart of over 1.6 km. Ranvas is a complex of beautifully preserved and aesthetically decorated independent havelis which are residences built for the queens of Maharajah Bhakat Singh of Jodhpur in the 18th century. During the 18th century, Bakhat Singh, the ruling maharaja of the time, sought to create a refuge from the external troubles of warfare and politics. The result was a pleasure palace which, still today, awakens the senses through its art and aesthetics - from the sound of fountains and peacocks to the sight of vivid fresco paintings and perfectly constructed geometric gardens. Each of the ten refurbished havelis has been named after one of the ranis and has two or three bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and a private courtyard. The suites on the first floor open on to a private terrace. At present Ranvas comprises 27 rooms in total, a swimming pool and two charming restaurants.
