The Luxe List 2011, India: Rasa Jaipur, Rajasthan

Camping doesn’t mean roughing it at Rasa Jaipur, a futuristic collection of 40 cubical glass-and-canvas tents arrayed against a backdrop of rugged hills and the meandering wall of the historic Amer Fort.

Designed with the same finesse as sister properties Devi Ratn and Devi Garh, the 46-square-meter tents are decorated in an earthy palette of brown stone, wood, and leather, and come complete with both heating and air conditioning, Wi-Fi, satellite television, en suite bathrooms with deep sunken tubs, and private gardens and pavilions.

Pass your days enjoying a wide range of activities including mountain biking, kite-flying, or trekking and bird watching in the nearby nature reserve—before relaxing in your outdoor seating area, where you can dine on Indian and fusion cuisine prepared with ingredients from the resort’s organic gardens, while watching the walls of the fort turn golden in the setting sun.

91-141/305-7211;; doubles from US$340
