At Anopura....

Surrounded by lemon groves, marigolds and roses, calming Anopura near Jaipur is your cue to hop from leopard-watching to hill-hiking to Mawari-horse-riding, fitting in meals and massages beneath the shady pomelo trees, too. Bed down here and you’ll be far from the madding crowd, with a minimum of fellow guests: the hotel has just four suites and a two-bedroom villa, all of which are rather lovely. A duo of sparkling pools, bloomin’ lovely gardens and inviting outdoor tabaris (lounges) are your additional reasons to relax. There’s no formal restaurant or bar, but the hotel’s clever Rajasthani chef will keep you from hunger and thirst, rustling up moreish creations of persuasions both East and West. Keep your eyes peeled for the local leopards, too…
