The drive from Agra to Ajabgarh is quite long, however, well worth it.
Amanbagh is located in a valley within the Aravalli Range in Rajasthan and tucked out of sight from the road behind high walls and lush vegetation so it is not visible when driving past, except for the stone coloured roof which can be occassionally spied through the trees.
To welcome you, three sari clad ladies await and ask you to stand while one sings a traditional Indian welcome and blessing before another ties a traditional thread on your wrist and the third anoints your forehead with vermilion. It is a touching ritual.
Amanbagh is a large resort which surrounds a central pool. The resort is quiet and serene with bird calls and the occasional noise from a passing vehicle or motor bike.
Rooms are large, comfortable and beautifully appointed. The huge bathroom houses a central green marble bathtub and his and hers vanities as well as wardrobes.
The grounds are vast and include an expansive vegetable and flower garden all which are used at the resort for decoration or in the kitchen.
Staff are non intrusive and very polite and offer impeccable service.
Amanbagh offers every facility an Aman Resort is renown for.
A very special resort that shouldn't be missed when visiting Rajasthan. Unfortunately we weren't able to visit the sister property of Aman - i-khas - we had to leave something for next time.
