The Six Senses hotel is a three-hour drive from Jaipur and a 30-minute drive from Ranthambore National Park. The 700-year-old fort took almost a decade to be converted into a haven of comfort and luxury. Opened in October 2021, the property includes two palaces, two original temples, and 48 suites. The rooms range from 753 square feet to 3,014 square feet in size and are furnished luxuriously. The Barwara Fort was originally constructed in the 14th century by the Chauhans and was conquered by the Rajawat Dynasty from the Hadas in 1734. This fort-turned-hotel is hospitality InterContinental Hotels Group’s (IHG) wellness and sustainability brand Six Senses’ first foray in India.

They also provide luxury electric SUV transfers for all guests to and from the station. A relaxing Six Senses Spa is present on property, which relies on the preventative principles of Eastern medicine as well as Western influences.
