We stayed in the Maharaja's room and had the other room opposite it and had the most amazing time. My 2 kids, 6 and 8, went to school in the village (at the all girls school) for 2 of the days and it was an amazing experience for them. They also met loads of kids to play football and cricket with on the Fort Barli lawn. The Fort is great value and offers an authentic palace experience. It is not a 5 star hotel, so don't go expecting that, but it is just amazing to stay in such a historic place. I cannot recommend this place enough, it is steeped in history, the owners are hugely kind and accommodating, the food is delicious, especially the evening meal and the rural India experience is one we will remember for many years to come. Thanks Fort Barli

Room Tip: The main suite/Maharaja's room is something special

This fort is just an amazing place... we got a suite for the family, with lot of historical furnitures... just beautiful.
The diner was awesome... we were just the 4 of us in the dining room... nice meals.. nice staff... all was great.
The breakfast was also very great.. all you need and even more... no chance to eat all we are getting.
And in the morning, do the visite of the small village (complementary) and you’ll be able to talk to nice people happy to spend some time with you
If you have time during your trip, Fort Barli is a stop you must do

After a tortuous journey from Rohet we arrived at lunch time at this gorgeous little fort which is still owned by the family who built it in the 1680s. It has just eight guest suites. Ours was of good quality and quantity with five separate rooms. Sadly we will miss out on the fun as we leave in the morning. But there is plenty to do, much of it organised by the hotel. There is a village walk, a birding walk, yoga, massage a superb infinity pool next to the dining area and a very appealing looking swing seat for two lovebirds. The people who run it make it what it is of course and they tick all boxes being friendly and helpful. As the only guests we were presented with a superb Indian buffet and every dish was delicious. A gem well off the beaten track.

What a contrast to the rather colourless hotel rooms you may have experienced (think Imperial Delhi or Oberoi Agra ). However what you will get is as close as is possible to an old Mughal fort converted to a very comfortable home you are allowed to share for a short
time and feel privileged to do so . The rooms are comfortable and very adequately supplied with all conveniences the modern traveller requires . You can’t choose your dinner ; you just get what’s on the menu that night ( last night it was a mix of vegetarian and meat curries delicately spiced ) and quite delicious . The gentleman in charge has family links to the royal family who still own this property and showed us around it this morning ( complementary) . Absolutely fascinating collection of photos and artefacts on show including the jewel in the crown being the Queens boudoir
( no men allowed without her permission ) which figures in one of the pictures already on show . There are only eight rooms available so no overcrowding ....
Excellent massage available and bullock ride around the village this afternoon . Back to the hustle and bustle of Jaipur tomorrow

Fort Barli, on our way to Jaipur from Narlai did overnight stop which turned to be a lifetime experience staying in a heritage hotel located in the center of village.

Evening village safari is perfect to see the culture and colours of Rajasthan.
