Conscious Luxury Travel
Meet a community of unusual hoteliers, owner-hosts of palaces, forts, retreats and lodges dedicated to preserving heritage and conserving nature. For world travellers, here are destinations and experiences in the subcontinent – alive, authentic, set in stylish and restful spaces, earth happy and conscious of their impact on the environment and committed to the land and the community. As you travel to every destination we believe is ‘RARE’, your mindful interactions with people, culture, nature, wildlife, crafts and traditions will nudge you to live consciously.
Every Experience is RARE
From hotels that are experiences to experiences that help you discover places, RARE is a posse of some of the finest boutique hotels offering you intelligent and concious hospitality. In the collection, discover cruises on two mighty rivers, blaze a dusty trail into remote tribal villages, hike along the chilling shadows of the Everest, salute the sun with the mighty Machapuchare in full view, experience the thrill of walking in the jungle, camping in the wild and sleep under stars, cook up a storm with your hosts, raise a toast to the setting sun, dance, sing, hug or just be. The world you choose to travel to is your sacred space and you will come away wishing to explore again.
People and Planet First
Look closer, delve deeper. Each hotel of the community is a story impatient for your attention. You, the traveller will find every experience, style and interest you seek. Often our destination hotels behold as custodians of everything that works for the welfare of the place and its people. Collaborations, conservation ideals and responsible choices, coded as the RARE touchstones are a valuable benchmark for sustainable tourism and create value beyond the ubiquitous luxury and service quality.
