A fantastic stop on our trip through Rajasthan. A magnificent residence on a property in gentle decay. A great room. Very friendly staff. A wonderful dinner in the middle of a courtyard. Ajay was a great host. A trip to the summer palace is a must. If you are driving though the area this is a great one or two night stay.
Historic Heritage Hotel brought to life by the owner and staff. What a great experience - staying in a top turret suite - amazing!! Owner, Ajay was generous with his time in order to give us a really memorable stay, one of the best of a 3 month tour of India, including fascinating tours of village and Princes’ palace with Arjun Highlight was sunset visit to lake and lamp lit summer palace with sundowners and a drive in Ajay’s WWII American army jeep Enjoyed the authentic meals. Unreservedly recommend this wonderful palace and owner
Another wonderful one night stay in this magical property. It is not easy to run such a house, but you get the most you can get. Excellent food, nice hosts ( Ajay and his staff). It may be a bit off-road - but it is more than rewarding to go there and enjoy the exceptional fairytale ambience, with labyrinthine starways, wake up call by peacocks, excursion to the summer palace....one must experience it! Go for it, you will not regret.
The home of a noble family, one of the grandest in the kingdom of Mewar in south Rajasthan, the Fort oozes with history, and a real sense of a place in time. Here you are in the palace of true Rajputs: gallant, generous, knowledgeable about history. Less a hotel than a home, the hotel is a living museum, a current residence of a noble family and an extraordinary experience of historic Rajasthan. The rooms gleam with multi-coloured glass and the balconies look over old walls, ramparts and the medieval town below. By staying here you are also helping the family restore its extraordinary hereditary home and save one more part of Indian heritage. Don't miss it!
Very memorable and very different from all other stops in Rajasthan. Ajay's hospitality is exemplary, and his recounting of his family's history back to the 15th Century over a gin and tonic was enthralling. The last ten reviews accurately describe the fort's ambience and the comfort/exquisiteness of the bedrooms. The visits to the winter and summer palaces were very interesting, as was the Jeep journey through the Begun countryside, including a quick stop at a regulated opium grower. Good luck Ajay in your development plans for the Fort - you deserve best wishes for your determination to restore part of India's heritage.
