At the RAAS Devigarh Hotel in Rajasthan, India, an 18th-century palace fortress was converted into a wellness destination. The eco-conscious redesign, complete with light-filled rooms, a luxe spa, and an Ayurvedic retreat center, demonstrates how small touches can transform a heritage property into a relaxing oasis.

Founder Nikhelendra Singh wanted to preserve the palatial façade with its domes and arches, but make the interior contemporary. No detail was spared—the restoration took almost 15 years and a team of 750 people.
