Hotel of the week: Oberoi Rajvilas, Jaipur, India

India’s Mughal kings really knew how to camp out.

India’s Mughal kings really knew how to camp out, said Maria Finn in Afar. Granted, one can’t be sure that the luxury tents at this Jaipur resort aren’t better appointed than the portable hunting palaces that inspired them. Each of these, after all, comes with polished teak floors, a hand-embroidered canopy, and a wraparound lounging terrace. You can enjoy sights and sounds “reminiscent of camping” by walking the grounds’ torch-lit stone walkways while listening for peacock shrieks. But when a butler brings wine to your terrace after dinner, you’ll be glad that “connecting with nature” doesn’t have to mean sleeping on the ground.oberoihotels.com; from $549
