Such an incredible experience, beyond a hotel - full blown luxury cultural immersion. Everyone from the manager, to food & beverage team, to housekeeping, to drivers, to spa professionals were incredible. Personalized one-of-a-kind experiences tailored to the type of trip you are looking for. Ratan, our guide, met my husband and I at the Jaipur airport and brought us to desired artisans for a shopping trip. He is so knowledge on the city and whole area surrounding the hotel. At the hotel, our accommodations were beautiful, fresh flowers in our rooms. Spa treatments were very relaxing and personalized. Can't say enough good things about the entire team here. Would recommend to anyone who loves culture and luxury and is willing to pay for it.
We were really looking forward to relaxing at an Aman property following our 18 day trip to India. While the property is stunning and very relaxing, we left feeling that the Amanbagh doesn’t completely deliver on the promises of the Aman brand. To begin with, the staff is very welcoming. We were checked on constantly to make sure everything was okay. However, I have to say it was too much and felt inorganic at times. The welcome prayer, while beautiful, was unnecessarily ceremonious after a long trip. There was also a lot of awkward loitering consistently from the staff after polite chit chat. At multiple points we said to each other, Are they waiting for tips or some special acknowledgement? Of course, to a certain extent you appreciate this, but when asked for the third time why I hadn’t eaten my dinner and if it was fine, I started to get annoyed. Maybe we misunderstood their intentions, but when we did complain about one small thing during the stay (the constant power cuts), we felt this was unduly dismissed. Of course, we’re in the middle of nowhere, power cuts are expected, but it was a little much (they have a backup generator, but it was slow at times, not ten seconds as we were told). As for the room… the aesthetic of Amanbagh is beautiful, and the property is stunning. But wow, the room did not live up to the Aman name. The furniture on our front courtyard was covered in bird droppings (albeit wiped “clean”). The linens on the bed were nothing special, and the bathrobes & slippers were actually what I’d expect from a four-star hotel, not an Aman property. Nice big bathtub, but no bath salts? Also, the bathtub drain didn’t work so we left it undrained multiple times, and there was no hot water for the bath! It was luke-warm at best- I actually used the kettle to heat it once. The safe in the room also didn’t really work properly, and some of the room accoutrements (such as the kettle and the awful hairdryer) are in need of updating/replacing. However, that being said, the towels are nice, the room was constantly refreshed without us even noticing, and there were many thoughtful touches that balanced the negatives such as the candles and mosquito cream. The spa was definitely the highlight of the stay. The masseur was amazing, and I’d definitely recommend getting either a massage or one of the other treatments from their extensive menu. In terms of the food… this was pretty hit or miss. Nothing exceptional, sometimes quite good (yellow dal with spinach, pork belly), and sometimes actually bad (pastries, quinoa salad). Pool snacks were great and a nice treat. Cocktails were also good. Activities: my biggest complaint with our stay was that when we checked in, we were asked about what activities we wanted to do. We were undecided, so it was agreed that someone would speak to us at dinner about the plan for the next day. No one did, and we did have a few things in mind. So we went to the front desk. No one was there. At this point we were very tired, so just went to bed. The next day we went to the front desk and asked to arrange a safari for the afternoon, which they were unable to do. We instead did it the day we left in the morning, and it was excellent. Nonetheless, I felt this was a massive oversight and meant we basically spent a day doing nothing. Check-out: after all the fees and taxes and gratuity on everything, we felt that the bill was quite disproportionate to our experience. They forgot a hat we asked to purchase from the gift shop, well whatever. Still tacked it on to the bill at the end (a truly exceptional hotel would throw in this $15 hat as a good faith gesture on a $4k bill that was already prepared, especially as it was their mistake for forgetting it and we had to remind them twice and confirm if they had packed it with our other gift shop purchase, which they said they had, but had not. But such is life and such are misunderstandings). Our verdict? A lot of effort, some finesse, and ultimately not worth the money. Maybe this review is harsh, but Aman holds themselves to an exceptionally high standard which Amanbagh just didn’t deliver on. Still a beautiful property, and I don’t regret our stay at all, but it was not the best property we stayed at in India this trip (and was by far the most expensive).…
We have been to several Aman properties, and each stay has been wonderful. Amanbagh has been no exception. From the property manager on down, everyone is eager to help — usually without being asked. They just are sensitive to clients’ needs. Difficult? Nothing is difficult. Need something? Ask. They will do whatever it takes to make your stay the best. The massive pool, the well equipped health club, the spa (great treatments), the food — wonderful. (Would be nice to have a sauna at the spa, though) We keep coming back to Aman properties because we know we will have a superb experience.
