IHCL introduces Devi Ratn, a SeleQtions hotel at Jaipur
Devi Ratn lives the story of a dramatic Jaipur across its 20 acres, blending heritage with a design vision of the future
Desinged under the Signature City Hotels and Leisure Resorts category- SeleQtions- Devi Ratn is located at Ballupura Farms, Village Jamdoli, Agra Road in Jaipur. Specially curated for travellers who seek unique stories, this property offers a heritage setting with a futuristic appeal.
With design, geometry and surreal experiences, Devi Ratn narrates an astronomical story. Its sprawling architecture, inspired by the 18th century Jantar Mantar astronomical observatory and the coral pink reception with a domed ceiling ensures that. Rooms are spacious and almost carve out zones for sleeping, unwinding, reading and dining. The rooms are done up in palettes that evoke a flamboyant Rajasthan.
Rose-coloured domes, arches, curved walls, skylights and latticework look stunning. Terrazzo floors recall the zigzag designs of local Leheriya textiles. Residences are comprised of themed rooms, suites and villas that lie along crescent shaped streets at varying heights, ensuring a view of the Aravallis from every room.
Courtyards, gardens and plunge pools accentuate the intrigue of the property. Bathrooms are king sized with black river stone finish and rain showers. Free Wi-Fi and premium amenities connects the inmates to the outer world. While the conference room, banquet halls and sprawling lawns are geared for the grand occasions be it corporate offsites or fairy-tale weddings, dining isn’t far behind. Vyom, the all-day dining restaurant, is a commanding 18-feet high pillared chapel and serves contemporary Indian and European fare. The bar called Mandala virtually serves up its own constellation with its patterned mirror ceiling and neon tables. One can step out on to the bar deck or better catch a quiet meal at the Jal, the poolside café. The resort also organises a meal at its highest point, the Machan, that serves gorgeous views of the Aravallis.
