Accommodation rating: Superior
Ranjit's Svaasa is an 18th century colonial heritage mansion that has been restored using traditional methods and environmentally friendly materials. The guest rooms have been tastefully furnished and each one is individually decorated. All rooms have telephone and internet connection. For relaxation there is a mezzanine library lounge with a chess table and comfortable sofas. Rainwater harvesting, water heating using solar power and the planting of trees and herbs are examples of the environmental focus of the property.
As far as dining goes, the emphasis is on organic produce and products naturally processed from herbs, roots and plants. This means the menu is limited and may not necessarily appeal to everyone's palate. For those who do not want to dine at this hotel, there are good restaurants and cafes serving local cuisine in the town centre. Despite some of the limitations, this is the best available hotel in Amritsar.
