October 19, 2021 - Our 14th-century fort is located 30 minutes from Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan, India. It has been restored to become the most regal of our properties for history buffs and wildlife lovers, adventure seekers and wellness enthusiasts.
Originally owned by a Rajasthani Royal Family, the fort offers sensational views of the Chauth ka Barwara Mandir (temple) and the Barwara lake. The significant conservation effort has taken more than a decade to complete and incorporates two original palaces and two temples within the walled fort.
To reinterpret the regal ambiance of a bygone era dating back 700 years, Fort Barwara has been sensitively transformed into a 48-suite resort, including five specialty suites, while retaining its medieval features. Each suite is designed in a contemporary Rajasthani style to complement the historic backdrop of the fort while subtly incorporating state-of-the-art in-room technology along with the groundbreaking Sleep With Six Senses standards.
The 30,000 square foot (2,800 square meter) Six Senses Spa and fitness center are located within the original women’s palace. A full menu of signature massages, Ayurvedic treatments, nurturing facials, mindfulness practices, and personalized wellness programs is on offer. You can also blend your own essential oils, muds, clays, gels, and vegetable oils to create energy-boosting scrubs at the Alchemy Bar.
Led by Matthew Cropp, the resort’s flagship dining destination, Roohani, showcases the power of local produce from the resort’s organic garden and farms in the nearby village in innovative ways. The overarching theme is Rajasthani-inspired fresh, sustainable cuisine highlighting Indian elements and flavors while embracing the Eat With Six Senses approach.
The Viewing Gallery and The Rajawat Room are perfect options to enjoy signature cocktails after a safari or before dinner. Or savor flame-to-table cooking using seasonal ingredients by the poolside at Rani Bagh, which will serve innovative finger food and light menus. The magnificent Barwara Royal Ballroom can be transformed to host weddings and other celebrations, with the resort’s experienced chefs adding a touch of showmanship to the service to make any big day a truly memorable one.
From the responsible restoration of the palace to the wider Barwara community, lake and landscape, Six Senses Fort Barwara takes good care of its surroundings. The landscape concept by Savita Punde of Design Cell and horticulturist Pradeep Kishen has retained traditional gardens and water features, local native flora, and fauna.
Age-old water harvesting techniques have also been modernized in a way to not only celebrate rain in this area but also make the observer acutely aware of this precious resource through spiral structures across the resort. And you can taste it too: the energy footprint of importing branded drinking water has been eliminated with the resort having its own reverse osmosis plant to produce top quality still and sparkling mineralized water, which is provided to guests in re-usable glass bottles.
Six Senses Fort Barwara will offer a resting point during a busy touring itinerary of Rajasthan and is within easy striking distance of Ranthambore National Park if you’re looking to take a walk on the wild side with the local tiger population.
To celebrate the first Six Senses Resort in India, a limited-period introductory Discover Six Senses Fort Barwara experience is available at INR 65,000 plus applicable taxes per night. This rate includes breakfast, lunch and dinner for two and a special Six Senses activity designed to engage guests and their loved ones.
