Relais & Châteaux officially launches in India

Relais & Châteaux has announced its official India launch at a press briefing.  Three new Indian properties – Sher Bagh in Ranthambore (Rajasthan), The Serai in Jaisalmer (Rajasthan) and Neeleshwar Hermitage in Malabar Coast (Kerala) were accepted as members of the association, in addition to Malabar House (Fort Cochin) and Mahua Kothi (Bandhavgarh Park), already members since 2008. Sher Bagh is a classic 1920 “Raj” style luxury tented camp and offers the perfect retreat to those looking for the authentic Indian ‘Safari Experience’, in Ranthambhore, which is probably the finest place in the world to see wild tigers. The Serai, Jaisalmer is a luxury desert camp and spa set in a hundred-acre estate of indigenous desert scrub; it is a luxurious base from which to explore the medieval desert Kingdom of Jaisalmer- the property takes inspiration from a royal caravan serai. Neeleshwar Hermitage is the first boutique hotel on the beautiful unspoiled coast of Malabar. It is an oasis of eco-friendly practice and a refuge for the soul: The Hermitage offers a large variety of ayurvedic and spa treatments, as well as yoga and meditation.
