Resort

Derived from the Sanskrit word for ‘peace’, aman, and the Hindi word for ‘garden’, bagh, Amanbagh is a verdant oasis of mature palm, fruit and eucalyptus trees.

Destination

Amanbagh is near Jaipur (JAI) and within reach of Delhi (DEL) and Agra (AGR) airports. A heliport is also available.

Weather

The best time to visit Rajasthan is between October and March, although the region is not struck by the wash of the monsoon months, so it has a fairly dry climate throughout the year, with hot summers and cool winters.

What to pack

Light clothing is appropriate with a sweater or jacket in the evenings. Sports shoes are suitable for light touring, while hiking boots are recommended for treks. Legs, shoulders and upper arms need to be covered when visiting places of worship and the local community.

Language & Currency
There are many distinct languages and dialects in India; in the northern region, Hindi and English are widely spoken. The national currency is the rupee. Traveller’s cheques are easy to cash and some banks in larger cities have ATM machines.
Don’t Forget
India is on India Standard Time (IST), five-and-a-half hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Electricity is 230 volts/50 cycles; convertors as well as plug adaptors are available.
Health
Amanbagh offers guests round-the-clock access to medical assistance, with an onsite emergency clinic. Reasonable precautions should be taken against hepatitis-A, malaria, cholera and typhoid. Drinking boiled or bottled water is often an adequate precaution against water-borne illnesses.
Visas

Please check with your nearest Indian embassy or consulate prior to travel. Guests travelling to Delhi and holding passports that fall under the E-Visa Programme are required to apply online for advance authorisation before travelling. This must be completed at least four days in advance of the date of arrival with a window of 30 days.

Notes

Amanbagh is open all year round except for the months of June and July 2015. The Amanbagh team can advise on visas as well as assist with any other travel arrangements, including transfers and private flights.
