Looking for absolute privacy on your next holiday? Try checking into the Anopura, the smallest luxury hotel in India. Located in the Aravali mountains close to Jaipur, this high-end hotel is designed by Philippe de Villegas, the ex-honorary Belgium consul in Marakech and has just three rooms.
This exclusive property, touted to be a global destination, has just two suites located in a luxed-up version of a Rajasthani-style thatched hut. Another sleeping option is in a luxury tent set up in the garden that gives you access to lush green farmland.
The suites, Kedjeri and Champa are available for $370 per night (Approx Rs. 17,427), whereas the tent, Jasmine is available for $340 (approx Rs. 16,014) per night. You can also rent out the whole of Anopura for a $1050 per night (apporxRs. 45,455). The designs of the rooms are inspired by a traditional Rajasthani country home.
The rooms are decorated with local art. Other than super-comfy beds and cooling from the Indian summer, the place also stocks up on books so that the guests feel at home. Anopura, set in an agricultural environ complete with a deep-plunge pool, lures the traveller to rural India.

You can explore the vast property on foot, on camel-back, on a jeep or a mountain bike. Other leisure activities you indulge in during your stay there are bird watching, elephant riding, kite-flying or playing petanque, a French sport similar to bocce or boules.
