Like many historic homes, Castle Mandawa is a curious mixture of the old and the new. Medieval turreted towers, palanquin-roofed balconies, blend with modern comforts in old-world rooms. Family portraits, antique cannons and arms add to the charm of this family-run resort where tradition still runs strong. Today, the world comes to this storybook town to see its colourful frescoes on every subject under the sun, that is, ranging from the religious to the erotic; from copies of popular English prints to witty social satire, rendered in the inimitable style of the local artist. And perhaps the best place to discover the legacy of Shekhawati is from the comfort of Castle Mandawa, a fortress, now converted into a luxurious heritage hotel. Explore Castle Mandawa at your own pace. Spend a leisurely hour over a drink in the colonial verandah that accommodates the bar, or relax in the cosy comfort of the Diwankhana, the formal drawing room decorated with family portraits and an array of antique armour.

Ahmedabad District, India22 contributions6 helpful votes
The property has several courtyard and terraces that need to be discovered. It is right in the middle of the town. Linen is super clean. Super courteous staff. Great food with local Rajasthani cuisine. Super cultural evening with a bonfire. Of special mention, Virender, the general manager. The property boasts of who's who of Bollywood having stayed at the Royal Suite that we stayed in.

As we were sick of covid news and fears, me and wife decided to do the best thing to fight it. Travel! And since Rajasthan was the first place to open up for tourism, our travel agent Holxo recommended the sleepy town of Mandawa, after getting to know my interest in heritage. And boy, what a trip it turned out to be! They arranged the best taxi and driver for the five hour drive from Delhi, and as we set out, we received a welcome call from the hotel manager Virender Singh Rathore. His name itself gave me a glimpse of the Rajput heritage we were about to partake in. And we were not disappointed as we reached the hotel Mandawa Castle. It is actually a a 250 year old property, and new wings were added later on, but even those in heritage style, rather than in new architecture.

Mandawa Castle was a lovely experience. A Royal welcome after 5 hours drive from Delhi. The sight of the Castle is refreshing. The place is amazing with beautiful luxury rooms, ever hospitable and helpful staff and the awesome food. The staff ably managed by Virendra Singh pampered us to the hilt. The culinary delight we went through from Rajasthani to Mughlai to Continental at various ambience setting from candle light atop the terrace to pool side was memorable. Wish things get normal for the Hotel Industry to bounce back soon... We shall surely make another trip to stay at the Dessert Resort boasting of mid houses

One is surprised upon entering the compound as the entrance is pretty abysmal . If you are driving as I was is not for a non Indian which I am. The staff was excellent and very attentive. The wedding we attended was well served and was lovely. The food in the our door pub and bar was not good. The chicken burger was very small and a few french fries given. We ordered room service and they sent food from the day before I will say it was a copious amount. The pool needs to be kept free of pigeons who spoil the pool with there feces and offal. The breakfast was very middling for a hotel billed as 5 stars. The breads very poor. The building retains its old times charm but needs better cleaning and up keep. It is alot of money for what is presented.

we got good service. good rooms and good food. the staff was always helpful and polite. the place was clean and refreshing. the only reason i am not giving 5 star is that they charged us higher slab of GST in end December although the rates had been revised since october. initially they refused to amend, but on our persistence, they finally charged us the correct lower GST.

Mandawa has been called an ‘open art gallery’ and when you visit the town you can see why. Hand painted frescoes decorate walls both inside and outside the buildings. The well kept fort has beautiful examples of this. We stayed in the fort in a luxurious room and enjoyed the warm welcome of all the staff. The food was delicious and we enjoyed a night cap in the most beautiful of bars A very special place full of culture and art.. We had a very memorable stay and loved every minute.

BEWARE - This hotel is very hostile towards American & European travelers! I would NOT recommend this place to foreigners. While visiting Mandawa we were looking for a hotel to stay for two nights and decided to see if this was a good place. Many of the online reviews seemed suspect (aka fake), so rather than book we decided to stop in to see for ourselves prior to booking a room online. We were essentially harassed by every one of the staff and told we “could not stay here!” by the main person as he said “leave” and “go away” repeatedly. Rooms were available online, but thank goodness we stopped by first to witness the atrocious and hostile environment firsthand. We were followed and yelled at in Hindi while attempting to get a coffee at the bar. Then told to pay the

It was my wedding anniversary and i wanted to give a surprise to my wife. I was a bit sceptical initially to go to a heritage property like this but O BOY, i was wrong. This is such a wonderful palace converted into a hotel in 1980. It was built in 1755 and i must say it's so well maintained. The rooms are super spacious and i also loved the hospitality. Food was just delicious. Special shout out to Mr. Virendra Singh Rathore (GM) who arranged a candle light dinner set up at the roof top secluded area with mind blowing set up. Mr. Shakti Singh was also a great help. In all, a wonderful & peaceful property to relax. See the pics and decide yourself. Thanks!!

This was a great hotel to stay at. Still privately owned we stayed as part of a small group of friends travelling together. We arranged a celebration dinner directly with the hotel which was a fantastic experience. Food, rooms and facilities were excellent. The hotel owners and management did all they could to make our stay enjoyable which they certainly achieved.
