A beautiful sojourn just a couple of hours from Delhi. Truly a wholesome experience in this heritage property with extremely gracious hosts, old world ambience and sumptuous delectable food on offer. The local and home style cooking won our hearts. The gardens are the cherry on the cake. Such lovely spring blooms all over . Their gardens recently were rated one of the best around. They really made our Holi celebrations a memorable one Would certainly come back ,this time in mango season to experience their orchards. Special thanks to Kuldeep for taking good care of us.

The hospitality at this amazing and unique historical treasure is unprecedented. My husband and I had a wonderful stay in our spacious suite and enjoyed the expansive gardens accompanied by a very caring and gracious host. For a unique and authentic experience and an opportunity to get off the grid - look no further.

A lovely property with beautiful and spacious rooms, a big pool, good food and a charming host who is happy to share the history of this family fort. Only 2 hrs drive from Delhi, a perfect getaway to reload your battery. You can do nice walks outside the fort or the host can organise activities for you like a trip to the Ganges river or visit the orchard close by.

Rao Raj Vilas is a hidden gem that exceeded all expectations. From the impressive grand entrance to the charming and attentive host, every moment felt like a luxurious experience. The courteous staff went above and beyond, making sure nothing was too much trouble. The lunch was a culinary delight, with each dish holding a secret recipe ingredient that made it truly special. My husband raved about the specially curated fish, while I struggled to decide between the delectable korma and kebabs – both were a taste sensation. The dessert, Shahi Tukda, was nothing short of awesome. Even the tea was a revelation, marking my first enjoyable experience with it in India. The attention to detail extended to the exquisite washrooms, with lovely hand wash and thoughtful touches that added to the overall enjoyment. My sister, a true foodie, found absolute delight in Rao Raj Vilas. What stood out was the remarkable balance in the veg and non-veg selections, both earning her equal praise. The culinary excellence at this establishment truly caters to diverse palates, making our experience even more unforgettable. Anek Singh, the owner, is a gracious host who personally ensured our visit was memorable. His afternoon spent showing us around, sharing history, and anecdotes behind the photos and memorabilia showcased his commitment to creating a unique experience. Rao Raj Vilas, with its abundance of little touches, reflects genuine care and attention. I can't wait to visit again – thank you, Anek, for an exceptionally enjoyable day.

Kuchesar Fort is an awesome place! It's like a castle turned into a resort near Delhi. It's super close to Delhi, which is great for a quick getaway. The rooms are comfy, and you feel like royalty staying there. The food is delicious, and they have cool activities like exploring the fort and chilling by the pool. It's definitely one of the best resorts near Delhi for a fun and relaxing time!

Luxurious Heritage Property just 2 hrs away from Delhi. Kuchesar Fort also known as Rao Raj Villas is located in Bulandshahr, Uttar Pradesh. This heritage of Bulandshahr district is actually a fort converted into a resort. It is also known for being a wedding destination and referred as a weekend getaway but with a prior confirmation from the property owner. The Rao Raj Vilas Kuchesar Fort, was built in 1734 in Bulandshahr, Uttar Pradesh. The Kuchesar Fort is surrounded by 100 acres of flowering tree forest, and thus the Fort rests on seven towers. Kuchesar Fort is recognized as Rao Raj Vilas Kuchesar Fort. The property is so humongous and simply captivating with the architect of Mughal and British era. The comfy rooms named Raja Vilas, Rani Vilas gives the whole royal vibe along with all the necessities. The resort has many categories of rooms with different views and each has its own history. I went here with my family and we did lots of activities like cycling, pottery making, swimming, snooker etc. Later in the night we enjoyed the borne fire. They also have a separate dining area where the chef’s prepares mouth watering cuisines. The resort is very pleasing and have history attached to it.

What a wonderful surprise, only two hours from Delhi we stepped into another world. This impressive fort with beautiful grounds was the most marvellous place to stay. The owners were very welcoming and very happily took us around the fort, to the local mela, the orchards. They explained the local history and their ancestry, all very interesting. We had a great time in the village where we managed to connect with the villagers and were taken into their homes. The food at the fort was plentiful and very good. So many places in the fort to relax and enjoy the views and the quiet! Thank you Anek and Aman for a memorable stay.

The place is approx. 90 Km from New Delhi with excellent road connectivity and travel time of only 90 minutes from central Delhi. The place is very well kept and services are rendered with utmost humility and very high quality. Hosts and owners are graceful and one feels valued to be in their company. Unlike a branded property being run with corporatised standards, Rao Raj Vilas offers you a close to 5 star experience with all the modern amenities with old worl charm. if you are one who appreciates the context as much as the content, the stay here would offer you both i.e. historical context of a monument coming into its being in 1734 AD and facilities par excellence your modern lifestyle needs. Go out and spend quality family time... Thanks and Regards Anuj and Sheetal Malik

Just 90 minutes from the centre of Delhi, this historic house made a perfect weekend break. On arrival, the gates swung open and we were transported back to Mughal times as we drove past the ornate gardens towards the imposing house dating back to 1734. The owner Anek greeted us with enthusiasm, while our bags were whisked to our rooms and lime drinks served. Anek demonstrated genuine passion and knowledge of the history of the house and his family, from the Mughal to the British empires and beyond. We genuinely felt that we were welcome in his home. Rooms were large and steeped in character. This wasn’t 5 star luxury but genuine history. The reasonable rate included breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, all of which showcased simple but delicious home cooking. Other than lounging by the ornate courtyard pool and exploring the gardens, there were a range of activities available, many of which were included in the rate. These were welcomed, as other than the surrounding countryside there was little else to see in the immediate vicinity. We had a great tour of the house, grounds and temples, enjoyed cycling around the local farms and fields, as well as a river trip and picnic on the nearby River Ganges. In just two days, we also packed in an ox-cart trip and had a go at pottery making. An undiscovered treasure if you want to escape Delhi for the weekend.
