Rajasthan brings to mind a land full of colour, vibrance and cultural splendour. Devi Ratn located in Jaipur has a vocabulary of design that looks inwards at this rich source for inspiration. Devi Ratn takes its name from the “Nav Ratn”; nine pure gemstones that are said to focus the cosmic energy of an associated celestial body, ruled by a deity. The lustrous gem-craft of Jaipur, is reflected in the materials used and the intricate quality of detail in public and private spaces. The sculptural astronomical devices of Jantar Mantar, made in the early eighteenth century, were the starting point for the architects for an interpretation of modern Rajasthan. The ancient observatories were truly ahead of their times in accuracy, scale and grandeur. Taking forward this spirit, the all suite Devi Ratn boutique hotel is a place that combines lyrical spaces with bold architecture. Domes and arches rise out on the horizon, towering structures in red sandstone filter the light of the sun creating patterns on the ground as you approach this inspired destination.
