The Stepwell Dinner : Guests are taken on a magical journey from the Rawla through the village streets into the jungle before arriving at the 1100 year old “step well”. The magical setting is brought to life by dimly lit oil lamps that illuminate the setting through flickering light. The very private dinner is laid out in a traditional manner, it promises to remain unmatched experience to anything you will ever experience for a long time. The entire evening is like a secluded sanctuary inspired by the mystical past, bracing Indian spirituality and the unique experience of one being completely with nature.

We stayed there for an overnight and had a room with a great viw of the lawn and pool. As the place is isolated, you need to have the meals in the inhouse expensive resturant. Limited choice, with more choice foe western meals. Expected Thalis etc to experience the local taste. We did not try the safari or climb the hill. Visited the Temple at Sunrise when it was cooler. This was a great experience. Stepwell Dinner was outside our budget at 6500 Rs per person. Disappointed with the drainage from the Hotel was into open sewer ( near the staff entrance). The village also had open drains, which the residents were cleaning. Expect these to be overfowing in monsoon. We went for a walk in the village on our own.

This is a small boutique hotel in the middle of a village - very quaint and lovely. They have a lovely swimming pool, spa was superb, and safaris are excellent (very good naturalists and staff for this). Food is an issue. The breakfast is strictly okay and definitely needs to be improved. All other meals are to be paid for and with nothing around, this is the only option. Meals are very expensive, and not value for money because the taste and quality is not that great. This is the reason for one less star rating. Hospitality and service is good in some aspects, and lacking in some. Just needs better training - the staff is as helpful as they can be. The first room they gave us - the AC wouldn't work, and it was designed in a very stuffy, cramped up way. End of day 2 when they couldn't fix the AC they moved us - this new room (same price) was way better and bigger. This difference in room quality did not make sense. However, in this other room too, there were plumbing issues. Overall, I recommend this hotel - it is very unique. It just needs a bit of tweaking in service, and food. The per night cost is fine; but the high price for food is not justified. They have a dinner by the step wells - which is a superb experience, but again the food is strictly okay. It is expensive, but would have been worth it had the food matched to that standard.

We chose to stay at this place for a night on our way from Mount Abu to Jodhpur, while visiting the very talked about Ranakpur Temple - marvel. The property situated next to a small hill is truly grand with lush green well manicured lawns and the most beautiful laid out swimming pool arena. I had requested for a complimentary upgrade which could not entertained as they had a huge group booking at the last moment but they too care to allot me the most well located room facing the lawns and the pool. Reception was quite personal and check in smooth. Room way more spacious than expected. Room Service and house keeping absolutely top notch. Every member of the staff was helpful, attentive and smiling. It was a pity we could not use the pool as the water was still cold. For winters, the pool can be a big attraction if some sort of heating is put in place, as there is not much of entertainment otherwise. Being in a remote village with zero decent restaurants close by, one can be fairly dependent on the meals with in the property. As such I found the meals a trifle over priced. We ordered a Pizza for dinner with nothing to talk about. I did feel that the place was apt only for one night for an aged couple like us, but it can be a wonderful option for couples on honeymoon or big groups.

It’s a 2 hr .30 mins ride from Udaipur and Jaipur. We drove down from Nathdwara which is 1hr 30 mins drive. A true boutique heritage resort in the middle of the village of Narlai. We were a bit early for the checkin but Ravindra from the front desk helped us with the early check in. We were in the heritage wing and our room was cosy with an outside patio with a bench and a window overlooking the swimming pool. The meals was fairly ok but definitely a scope for improvement. We had one meal at the open terrace and one meal at the step- well. Much hyped though a great location near the hotel. The food again could have been much better. We took a day trip to Kumbhalgarh Fort and also walked around the village and trekked up the elephant hill. All in all a good weekend trip with good service. We drove to Jodhpur to catch our flight back home.

The staff are very warm and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Delicious food, beautiful location. Can improve on the cleanliness front, although no big complains. Shout out to Manvendra and his team for an exciting leopard safari! A good experience overall.

Stayed at RN for 2 nights. Property itself is very nice but is very overpriced, hence, 4 rating. # Property / Location: RN is essentially a hunting lodge of the erstwhile maharajas converted into boutique hotel. Old wing is the heritage building with smaller rooms while the new block has larger rooms. RN is easy to reach as its situated in the village which is on the main road. So you dont need to meander offroad. # Rooms : Rooms in the new block are super spacious. Just beware of sitting in the balcony with eatables due to monkey menace. All amenities are provided for. Only issue being there are 3 rooms per floor, so incase someone is playing loud music / TV, then, it cause disturbance. (call front desk incase it happens) # Staff/Food : Certainly the biggest strength of RN. All staff are very well trained & leave no stone unturned in terms of their service. Special mention to Mr Lala (Big) who was outstanding. # Activities : i. Safaris - You cam opt for safari experience hoping to spot leopards. The place has decent leopard density & usually you should have a sighting. Gypys are shared with other guests. This is chargeable activity. (we paid arnd 7k per person). So its quite a rip-off. Hence my comment on "over-priced". If you are a wildlife enthusiast, hope your gypsy does not have the "tourist" crowd on one of these safaris. ii. Short 1.5k trek (up & down) to the hill opposite the hotel. Its called elephant hill due to its shape & also has an elephant structure on the top. This is complimentary :-) Go either for sunrise or sunset. You get a good panoramic view. I As per the staff accompanying us, you may even see Kumbhalgarh fort on a clear day from atop. iii. Stepwell dinner: Easily one of the biggest highlight of staying at RN. There is an old stepwell which is exclusive to RN about 1.5k from the hotel. They organize dinner at this place for the guests. Again a chargeable affair ranging between 5-6.5k per person. Most importantly this is w/o drinks. For that you are charged separately. Overall a good place to stay as an offbeat property. Also away from Ranakpur hotel rush/crowd. As i said, only drawback is the mentality to "overcharge" the guest for everything. Even a car wash costs Rs 200. We had 10% discount on food & beverages as part our booking and it was not applied to stepwell dinner amount. The front desk at RN stated the price quoted for stepwell dinner was inclusive of 10% discount. We had to reason out & literally demand that the apply the discount for stepwell dinner during check-out. The amount was a paltry Rs1,000 but the point being that RN is just looking at avenues to rip-off guests. That left a bit of sour taste in an otherwise nice stay.
