Fort Barli is a residential fort that sits in the centre, and high above, the village of Barli in Rajasthan. The owners family have lived in the fort for many generations, they have recently renovated approximately half of the fort and opened their doors to guests. The setting of Barli Fort is magnificent as is the welcome from hosts Karni and Pallavi who are keen to share the history of their home and their respective families. The staff at Fort Barli are friendly and helpful and produce amazing food served either in the dining room or at the pool side with local entertainment provided for guests in the evening.
As a hotel the rooms are spectacular, don't expect modern 5 star hotel facilities as this is C17 centre rural Fort however the renovation is superb and the owners have managed to retain the history and individuality of each room.
The village of Barli is delightful and well worth exploring, especially if you take advantage of a guide from the Fort. The village people are extremely friendly and welcoming, they have so little yet are happy to share with guests from the Fort. A morning spent visiting the shoe maker and his family, watching the potter at work, visiting the Temple and finishing up at Vijay Shree Public School was one of the highlights of our visit to Rajasthan.
For the future Karni and Pallavi eventually plan to renovate more of the Fort and gradually increase the number of guests though it will never be crowded.
Overall, a fabulous experience, I wish we could have stayed longer in this delightful boutique hotel.

Fort Barli is a wonderfully renovated fortress overlooking a village of approx 5,000 inhabitants. We stayed in the King's suite, which was lavish and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. The fort itself is a relaxing environment in which to spend a few days. However, the village adds enormously to the experience. The hosts organised a trip through the village by bullock cart enabling us to meet with many of the local people, most of whom wanted their photographs taken! Overall a great experience.

This is a wonderful place to enjoy a Rajasthani fort experience. We had a wonderful suite with plenty of space, view and comfort. Great hosts, pool and delicious food. We also had the pleasure to eat our second dinner in a private room with beatiful decor. Highly recommendable.

Excellent place to get away from city life and relax for a while. The lady owner is 15th generation and she and her husband were excellent hosts and very friendly. They have made a big effort to keep the fort authentic while at the same time making the accommodation very comfortable. I stayed in the Prince's room which was over 3 floors with great views over the local village and countryside. Lovely swimming pool and places to sit around in the courtyard and unwind with a beer! Food was great too with a music show in the evening which was fun. This was the best place I stayed in 17 days of travel around India and certainly not the most expensive.
