“magical place to recharge our batteries”
Reviewed 17 March 2017

After the long flight, the hectic visit to Agra and then a long drive, Ramathra Fort is an oasis of calm. We had wonderful rooms with amazing views, excellent food, a hilarious camel cart ride, a row boat on the lake, guided tour of the vegetable garden and a rather chilly jacuzzi!!! Lovely hosts - nothing was too much trouble and I would love to return, especially if the hot tub is really going to be 'hot'!!!!!!

Room Tip: ask for rooms with views

We stayed here in Nov 15 having subsequently travelled throughout a lot of India, Ramathra remains one of our favourite places. It is not easy to get to and we would recommend staying for several days. We had the deluxe room with a huge balcony overlooking an incredible view, spending many hours with binoculars watching antelope, hyenas, wild dogs, peacocks, camels, buffalo and many varieties of birds.The restoration of the fort was ongoing and magnificent and it felt like a privilege to be there. The food was superb and the staff (all from the local village) were excellent. Highly recommend the walk to the village and just experiencing a way of life which you could imagine hasn't changed for many centuries. All in all an incredible place to stay but do spend enough time there to be able to relax and enjoy this treasure.

Room Tip: Deluxe room with balcony overlooking the plain is superb

Exquisitely comfortable with impeccable taste. A wonderful example of a historic building restored perfectly. The best hotel room in the world with views stretching miles and miles and complete peace apart from jackals calling at night and birdsong. Complete treat and so glad to have three nights there. Food was delicious and generous. We would go back in a heart beat.

I cannot even begin to sing the praise of this hotel. The service, our room and the safari were beyond our expectations. We were even upgraded to the luxury suite! If you are comfortable with a remote experience then this is a must! It came highly recommended from our travel agent, Hidden India Tours, and couldn't have been more spot on. The only negative would be that the hotel loses electricity if the generators are affected by wind. We weren't bothered because we were committed to being off the grid. (It only goes out for a couple of minutes, never without for more than 10 min)

BTW: the food was AMAZING! Really Indian cooking with fresh roti brought to the table on demand!

Beautiful property in a very remote area of Rajasthan. Nice decorated rooms (also the tent options looked nice) with views over the valley (incl. jacuzzi on the fort wall). Warm water supply was no issue at all compared to other locations in India. Boat ride on the lake was very relaxing and for sure for birdwatchers worth going.
Food (lunch, dinner) tasted well - however it seems they do not have dedicated service staff -> staff used the identical clothes all day long (for guiding tours as well as for serving dinner) what seems to be unusual for gastronomy. On breakfast the food was often touched by hand (e.g. the toast) as well as the coffee powder was re-used for multiple brews from the service staff. Overall handling of food as well as presentation was not on an acceptable level and needs significant improvement.
