This heritage property was christened Sukhdham – the abode of bliss by His Highness Umed Singhji, Maharao of Kota. Built by the British in c. 1870 as the residence of the Agency Surgeon, it later became the residence of Col Prithi Singhji, M.B.E., G.O.C., Kotah State Forces. He had earlier got the Kings’ Commission and served the British Indian Army with distinction. His grandsons Jaiwardhan and Harshvardhan are your hosts and they will ensure a comfortable and pleasurable stay. This mansion of dressed sandstone; arcades, terraces and balconies with intricate stone screens is an architectural gem. The 15 well appointed rooms are tastefully furnished with traditional and colonial furniture to maintain the character of the place. It has a large garden and is centrally located in the prestigious, lush green area of Kota. Sukhdham is family run and prides itself in personal service and homely cuisine.

The property is a heritage one with bygone era reflected in it's maintenance . There was lack of staff ..used as an excuse for late service as also unavailability of food offered in it's menu . More than hotel guests the evening sales of liqour to locals seems more geared to . The owners do make effort to make guests comfortable but that is all about it .

Sukhdham Kothi is Kota’s little piece of paradise. It’s a beautiful property with great rooms and amazing food. While the property is amazing, the experiences they plan for you are, if not better, equally great!

Sukhdham Kothi took me straight back into my childhood. V v High ceilings , colonial feel , quiet but busy streets, an old world charm to the place, it’s hosts and the staff. The owners lovely wife was a reservoir of local knowledge and handy information! And the Chambal river cruise which they arranged is a must do.

If someone wants peace and serenity, Sukhdham Kothi is the best place to stay. Marked with a touch of Royalty, the Hotel offers cuisine of different types, liquor is served here, swimming pool is available, one can also see Peacocks all over, centrally located and very near to Railway Station and Bus Stand. Service is excellent. However, all comes for a higher cost.

While the hotel itself is great, with peacocks and other birds, great food, good rooms, what sets this place apart is the wonderful hospitality of the host and the family running the hotel. Ask for a nature vacation on Chambal river and surrounding areas and you will not be disappointed. One of the best nature safaris with picnic breakfast arranged on the boat in a quiet spot on Chambal river. Loved it.

Conveniently located 10 minutes from Kota Railway Station, Sukhdham Kothi is an expansive and elegant property that takes you back in time not only because of its architecture and design, but also because of the courtesy and care extended to you. It is an ancestral property with lineage (the photographs on the walls bear testimony to the royal heritage and history). Lovingly looked after by the current guardians - the rooms are of a generous size and the bathroom in my room was the size of a bedroom in most cosmopolitan cities. I enjoyed WiFi that connects no matter where you are, efficient air-conditioning and a comfortable bed. The food is good and is combined with courteous service. A wraparound verandah allows you to enjoy balmy evenings or tranquil mornings to the accompaniments of peacocks calling and the odd mischievous monkey leaping from branch to branch among the many mature trees that dot the grounds. I would recommend this property to any and all visiting Kota - it is centrally located and is an oasis of tranquility and calm. I hope I have the opportunity to stay here again!

This was our second visit to Kota , in first visit this hotel had not shown up in our search, well thank God it did this time around. It is a property made in 1870 and yes very well maintained, obviously some extension here and there has been done with new addition of swimming pool. There are so many peacocks inside the complex and good amount of trees too. We met the owner who took us on a impromptu visit to old Kota which we had not known existed . Food was too good. We had laal Maas, papad nu subji, sev tamator ka saag, all where very authentically cooked and very tasty.

The place is situated in the most green and secure area of Cantonment in Kota. The moment you enter your eyes will be pleased by the greenery all around. The open grounds are welcomed by seasonal birds and peacocks which add to its beauty. The place is very clean and service is top notch and all this is so much affordable. Right from the rooms to the open ground where one can dine in next to pool, its not less than a royal experience with touch of modernism.

Back in November, when a friend suggested Kota as a travel destination, I was more than wary. Like most of us, I knew Kota for one thing: The coaching centers that aspirants for India’s best engineering colleges flock to. However, something in my friend’s voice and his reputation as a nature lover made me think. “What the hell,” I finally said to my wife, “let’s explore.” And off we went for a stay at Sukhdham Kothi and to explore Kota. We arrived early on a cold December morning and were pleasantly surprised to find Col Keshvendra Singh—the proprietor and every bit an officer and a gentleman—waiting to pick us up. We hit it off instantly and what followed for the next few days was wonderful conversations, warm hospitality, bountiful nature, and great food. Sukhdham Kothi is nestled near the cantonment area. Folks travelling from Delhi or Mumbai can opt for a train. If visitors prefer the aerial route, they can hop off at Jaipur and then embark on a 3–3.5-hour journey by road (the hotel can arrange that, of course for a fee). With fine manicured lawns, trees that are timeless, and peacocks dancing away, the setting for this place couldn’t have been more perfect. After a warm welcome by the staff and tea and biscuits, we were taken to our room, which had an old-world charm—be it the ceiling fan, the wooden furniture, or the bathtub. The room we stayed in opened out to a wonderful seating area. It later turned out to be a great refuge to down a beer or sip on hot coffee. When we went for breakfast the first time, both Col Singh and his wife, Neha, were there to enquire about us. The food was great and the conversations even better. The food menu is quite diverse. Be it mouth-watering Rajasthani fare—both vegetarians and non-vegetarians can expect to satiate their taste buds—or food to adjust to your palate, Sukhdham Kothi has it all. Once your meals during the day are over, you can savor the greenery outside by lazing on a chair in the garden and maybe read a book with the constant twitter of birds as background score. For those who love to sit outside in the evening, especially over a drink in the company of friends and family, the poolside is an exquisite haunt (a new bar’s coming up soon). Over a fire to keep us warm and snacks that blend, we enjoyed our evenings. The folks at Sukhdham Kothi have a passion for nature. Through their Kota Trails offering, we experienced first-hand the beauty Kota has to offer. Our first journey was an enchanting boat ride on the Chambal river. For the wildlife lover, there is a bounty here—birds, crocodiles, and an occasional sloth bear and leopard (the last two if you are lucky). I wanted to see crocodiles and three of them obliged while the birders in our group had a ball—from Indian eagle owls to the white-throated kingfisher, we saw them all. The next day, we had a sample of street food as we walked down the old town. One afternoon we went to Gadariya Mahadev, a forest about an hour away. The view from atop of the Chambal is to die for. The day progressed with a further expedition deep into the forest surrounding the Jawahar Sagar Dam area and ended with a majestic view of the sun going down from a view-point deep in the wild. Overall, Sukhdham Kothi (and their Kota Trails) was a revelation, made even more memorable by the great hospitality of everyone out there. Thanks so much to all of them. We are already making plans for our next visit.
