Why: The late Maharani of Alwar’s weekend getaway in the Aravallis gets a king sized makeover, re-launching soon as a 7 acre luxury retreat. Expect a dozen air-conditioned luxury tents (verandah and bathroom included), stabled horses, swimming pool, gourmet meals and most importantly, a well-stocked bar. Those looking for an active vacation – who are you people?! – can also borrow bikes from the hotel and head into Sariska National Park, only a few kilometers away.
When: Crown-sourcing begins in August 2012.
