Mihirgarh, Jodhpur $$$$
From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:Like an intricate sand castle rising out of semi-desert wilderness 45 minutes south of Jodhpur, this architectural gem was built as a labor of love out of mud and lathe work by the owners of the neighboring acclaimed heritage haveli, Rohetgarh. Mihirgahr is ingeniously crafted to provide each of the nine huge guest suites (over 1,700 square feet each) with private views and outside space. There are also alluring common areas: three courtyards with splashing fountains, several lounges and bars, a public terrace perfect for watching sunsets, an infinity pool, and a Jacuzzi atop a turret. The rooms and common areas are furnished imaginatively and colorfully using Rajasthani antiques, carved wood, and embroidered and mirrored fabrics. Fireplaces, created by local women, glitter with mirror work. International cuisine is on offer here, but the local dishes outclass what's found at most other Indian five-star hotels. At the end of a bumpy country road, Mihirgahr is ideal for those who wish to be away from it all while feeling like guests at a country house. There are even horseback safaris and jeep visits to local villages that include one to an opium ceremony in which you can participate.2010 Hot List
