Ramathra Fort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 January 2017

Leaving Agra in the morning, the trip to Ramathra fort didn't look too far: perhaps 3-4 hours. We didn't count on the last 60 odd km which was incredibly slow along very bumpy roads and tracks. After 5-6 hours, we made one last dramatic climb to the entrance of Ramathra Fort. Immediately, we realised we were in a very very special place and the memory of the arduous drive melted away in a flash. You are met by the discreet but available staff and shown straight away to your room. No complicated check in. The rooms were of simple, authentic luxury. Our room looked out over a stunning valley spotted with the beginnings of the evening mist. The peace enveloped us as we unpacked our bags and visited the 350 renovated fort. The ramparts have two round turrets on each corner affording a truly mystical view over their own kitchen gardens to a vast lake with eagles / storks flying in to settle down for the evening. For dinner, we sat around a fire in the garden before being treated to a sumptuous dinner serving 4 or 5 types of food for each course with delicious home made pickles. We also discovered their unbelievable home made halwa. This was repeated for every meal for the next two days. Oh my goodness! After the night, they took us for a walk into the village where (as the ONLY tourists), we strolled meeting the inhabitants, drinking tea with them and having a ton of fun taking photos of the children who happily chased us around asking "one photo" at every occasion. We also took a boat ride on the lake, visited their kitchen garden and went on a camel ride. They also kindly offered to extend our stay until after lunch on day 3 offering us graciously another sumptuous lunch at no extra cost. We also had our clothes washed very cheaply (nothing like normal hotel prices) and placed neatly back in our room.
In short, we were all mesmerised ad enchanted by the place, the people and the peace (after the bustling cities of Delhi and Agra, it was a welcome break). This is a truly fantastic place operated by an owner and staff that truly love their job. If you visit Rajasthan, do not miss this. As close as you can get to perfection.

Room Tip: Every room is exquisite. There are only 6! We didn't test the 6 tents but they looked incredible...

Absolutely lovely. Food excellent. Don't rush off from this unspoiled delightful place in the hills. I'd go back in a heart beat. Its worth thinking of it as rest after the hustle and bustle of Delhi and Jaipur. Take a walk and the evening boat ride on the lake.

We stayed in one of the suites with the most incredible views. Waking up to the sun rising above the plains below was just breathtaking. The fort itself is an impressive building, dramatically perched on the hillside. Inside great care has been taken to provide comfort and style. The food was superb, the flowers glorious and the staff informative and attentive. Our one regret was that we were only there for one night - don't make that mistake !

This is a difficult place to get to - no matter whether you come by train or car you have to do the last bit by car and the roads are terrible. However, once you arrive it is amazing. The views are incredible. It's so peaceful and quiet. The food was some of the best I tasted during my whole trip of India and the staff were friendly and helpful at all times. I stayed in one of the tents, which I think was the best option, and I had 2 of the best nights sleep I have ever had! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I chose one of the tents which was fabulous, luxurious and incredibly quiet.

We stayed for two nights. The hotel is set on a hillside overlooking the surrounding farmland and has views across Kalisil Lake. The staff are all very welcoming and the rooms were excellent, especially the seating area and the bathroom.
The fort has a homely feel and we were treated to a guided tour of the restored and yet to be restored parts.
Dinner is served outside, as were all the included meals. The guided walk into the local village, was one of the highlights of our trip to Rajasthan. The locals were welcoming( even though they must get hotel guests visiting on a regular basis!) and the walk gives a real flavour of rural India.
The most noticeable thing about Ramathra, is how quiet the area is, away from the hustle bustle.Very relaxing.

Room Tip: Rooms all face West so no real choice apart from standard or suite.
