“Aman wilderness resort”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

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.

Room Tip: Every room is beautiful.

I stayed at Amanbagh last year as part of a 4-week solo trip to India.

I began in New Delhi, then to Agra, then took a private car to Amanbagh. It was a peaceful haven in the middle of the most gorgeous valley. A must needed quiet stop in a long journey for me.

The architecture is breathtaking, and the rooms are luxurious. I stayed in the least expensive room, but it still had a huge outdoor patio and a bathroom the size of most studio apartments.

As with other Aman Hotels, the food was top notch. I ordered the India menu the entire trip and it was fantastic.

I would wake up and do Yoga, followed by breakfast and various activities throughout the valley. My favorite was a camel ride through the rural landscape, followed by an open top jeep tour through charming villages. I even got to stop and have tea inside a local home!

As with all other Aman Resorts, I highly recommend the Amanbagh experience!

On your way to or from Jaipur spend a couple of days in this exquisite resort. It lives up to any expectations, and raises the bar in luxury accommodations. The chef, BJ, is world class, and tailors the menu to your liking. His ingredients come from a private vegetable garden. The staff is attentive to your every need, and excels in every way. The setting is wonderful. Make sure you take the morning walk, the Yoga session, and the Spa. The rooms are luxuriously appointed, the grounds immaculately maintained, and the library is well stocked in good books. You will not find a TV on the property, but you will not miss one either.

After a few days in Jaipur and before going to Agra we spent 3 very special nights at Amanbagh.
The moment I arrived I was welcomed by our Aman family. The team was warm and very attentive to details. I started my day with a guided walk and a yoga session followed by a beautiful breakfast prepared specially for me at my convenience. Don't miss the chef's tour of his organic garden then you will know why the food is so good. Allow the chefs to prepare off-site dining for you because it is magic. I was surprised by how moved I was by the cow dust tour. I fell in love with the people of the town, especially the children. Being in this small town gave me a real glimpse into the souls of these beautiful people. Please don't miss this out of the way place. Namaste!

Far from the madding crowd, an enchanted castle magically springs up in a tiger & ghost-infested forest. This is Amanbagh. We stayed here during Diwali, the festival of lights, and it was very special. The standard Aman service details were faultless - and Robin, the manager was super friendly and helpful. We loved the way the hotel has included the locals in the development of the area. Great rooms, invisible service which the Aman is known for, mouth watering food and lots of do in & around, if you are in the mood.

I had the privilege to be invited by friends to stay at this resort for 4 days, but with so much crammed in to such a short time in India, I feel like having been away for 14 days. This was my first visit to India and I have to say the staff and attention to detail in this hotel is quite outstanding. Other reviewers have just about covered everything I would wish to say. But here are some additional comments.

Each lunch or dinner was held in a different part of the hotel grounds and despite the time of year and the fall in temperatures towards the end of the day, all our meals were outside. Heaters and fire pits being supplied as required.

My party placed certain dietary restrictions upon the hotel and they met those admirably.

Whenever we left the room with the odd clothing item tossed on the bed or chair, we would find them neatly refolded upon our return. I would have liked for the Bose CD player to have accommodated an IPOD or accessory port. The lack of TV was not missed since there was simply too much to do and the last thing one needed was a TV. I loved the door furnishings and padlock. Electronic key would have seemed out of place.

The pool was heated and a joy to swim in.

All the staff were exceptional, from the new General Manager, Head Chef, and army of attendants.

The open jeep ride around the nearby villages was an educational experience not to be missed. School kids loved to hitch around on the back of the jeep in the hope of not being detected.

Amanbagh ...its simply flawless. Its in the middle of nowhere but sometimes that is just the perfect setting.

Room Tip: There are four grades of room. You wont spend more than sleeping time in the room, so unless you nee...
