We stayed for 1 night on route to Jodhpur. This is a 16th century fort which has belonged to the same family for 16 generations. The owners are keen to keep the number of rooms small so that they can provide a personal service- which they certainly did. We were greeted by the husband and wife owners and taken to a lovely and historic suite-full of character. The views from the room were fabulous. The surrounding village is completely un spoilt by tourism and a ride around in a bullock cart is to be recommended. In the evening local singers and dancers entertained us. The food was satisfactory.
We would recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a break from the busy cities and to obtain a view of what rural Rajasthan is like.

Fantastic fort overlooking small village in rural Rajasthan. Made to feel like 'royalty' on arrival and throughout 2 night stay. Rooms full of character and richly furnished - we stayed in the 'queen's bedroom'. Fascinating personal tours of the fort and village (by bullock cart) and account of their rich history. Outstanding food and service - hosts were very attentive and ensured our stay was both memorable and will stay in our memories for many years.

Give you a break from busy and hectic life, away from touristic places

Fort Barli is located between Jodhpur and Jaipur and only one hour drive to Ajmer or Pushkar. The marvellous 16th centuries Fort in the middle of „nowhere“ is sourroundet by the unspoiled Barli Village and gives you the great oppurtunity to see rural life in action.
The Fort is in the 16th generation of the same Royal Family, the owners (a young couple) are wonderful and charming people, and gave us a very warm welcome feeling almost like a family member.

They themselves took care of us and offered and organized us a variety of fantastic activities: The Ayurvedic Massage made by a Massage- Therapiste from the village, was excellent, the Bullok-Safari trough the village with its friendly people, was our highlight. We also had a lovely Sunset Pic-Nic at the near lake, and an excellent poolside Dinner. All meals were cooked with love and fresh lokal ingridients, like the authentic Rajastane Cuisiene has to be. I had my very best homemade Masal Tea!

The lavish well decorated and comfortable rooms with private terrasse gave us a real Mahraja feeling and peace after visiting major cities.

The staff was very friendly and helpful and the service excellent.

It was a delightful stay and most memorable, but too short, we advise to everybody to stay at least 3 nights in this peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.
