Grand Activities And A Host Of Offers To Mark The Celebrations
ALILA Fort Bishangarh, the only known warrior fort in India to have been converted into a heritage hotel, celebrated its first anniversary on July 15, 2018. Over the course of the past one year, Alila Fort Bishangarh has bagged multiple awards and recognition across various categories from national and international entities of repute. It is named Best New Hotels in India by Condé Nast Traveler Hot List 2018 and most recently Best Restoration Projects by Hospitality Design Awards USA 2018.
The gradual setup and subsequent operations of the Fort as a distinct heritage hotel in the country have also led to the evolution and enhancement of the village – Bishangarh, an integral part amongst the many propositions of the property. Situated on the edge of the Aravalli Hills, overlooking the quaint village of Bishangarh, the fortress mirrors the rural simplicity. Over the course of seven years, the property restored its structure, where the original fort was left intact, with much care given to ecological restoration and the reconstruction of new residential areas, to recreate the courtly flavor of Shahpura’s royalty.
