Alila Fort Bishangarh located in Bishangarh Village 6 km off the Delhi-Jaipur National Highway. Its extraordinary combination of rugged, untouched parts of the original fort and carefully reconstructed royal residential areas recreates the truly authentic flavour.
Perched on top of a granite hillock in the midst of a vast expanse of the Aravalli Range, surrounded by hills dotted with havelis, villages and temples, Alila Fort Bishangarh is legendary amongst heritage hotels in the region for the adaptive reuse of a 232-year-old warrior fort into one of India’s most unique heritage properties.
Its grand majesty respectfully preserved in a unique marriage of history and modernity that is truly ‘surprisingly different’.

Its spacious interiors are elegantly furnished with large bay windows and day – beds, expansive bathrooms with footed/built-in bathtubs and large daybeds.
The library, set amidst old marble pillars, bears testimony to the old kingdom with the size of its holdings mapped out on the wall, and Spa Alila, carved out between granite rocks in the old dungeon, provides atmospheric settings for relaxation.
