“Great hotel in middle of desert”
Reviewed 4 September 2010

Beautiful hotel in middle of desert with friendly staff, good food, and dinner buffet was very good with local music; room was spicily large with very big toilet. Lots of green area.
Excellent camel and horse riding. Good collection of vintage cars.
over all very good experience with kids.

Located on top of a small hillock the resort exceeded all our expectations. The staff is friendly and courteous. The rooms are traditionally done up from out side and have hand plastered mud walls with Rajasthani artwork. The food is exceptionally good and the service even better. Overall an excellent place to spend a weekend or more if you can afford it.

Were part of a tour group, and were pleasantly surprised as it is in the middle of 'nowhere'. Nice rooms, everything worked, incl. A/C, and the bathroom was large and incl. hot water, not always available or working when travelling in India. Good breakfast, even though service is slow when dealing with several groups, and evening buffet food very substantial and varied. Nice pool, and staff very helpful. The atmosphere is unique and very nice and everything is at hand, incl. laundry services.

The luxury accommodation is in mainly individual buildings made of mud, straw and cowdung! They are beautifully decorated outside round the door and windows. There is a good sized swimming pool but it was rather cold when we were there. The hotel is a couple of miles away from Mandawa town.

We opted for the buffet meal in the evening which at 650 rupees plus service, plus tax was very expensive for India but very enjoyable with very good service from attentive staff.

The breakfast was also very good with plenty of choice with eggs cooked to order.

Try restaurant Monica near Castle Mandawa for a delicious, reasonably priced evening meal.

A nice complex with a superb view to the surrounding country side. The rooms are spacious and very well suited for the hot climate. The swimming pool is pretty nice although we couldn't use it for it was a little too chilly in January. The food was delicious and served in a nice and cosy atmosphere. Well done!
