We're not great campers so it was with some trepidation that we accepted the recommendation to stay on a campsite. Our doubts disappeared immediately we arrived. What a fabulous place! Not too many tents (I think there are 11) each with its own verandah looking out over the lake. And the tents themselves are breathtaking - the kind of accommodation you would find in a very comfortable hotel and we can honestly say the bed was the most comfortable we slept in during our whole trip. It was lovely to come back to the tent in the evening to find the heaters switched on, rose petals strewn over the bathroom floor and hot water bottles in the bed! We sat round the camp fire for drinks before dinner which was first class, as was the breakfast, both worthy of a top hotel. We went on a fascinating bird-watching walk, at the end of which there was the welcome surprise of drinks and nibbles beside the lake. Our only regret was that we didn't stay long enough to go on the walk round the local village. A truly memorable stay in a remarkable place and a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the cities.

We stayed here for two nights during our latest trip around Rajasthan. It was the highlight of the trip for me. The noise, chaos and beautiful squalor of India is transformed into an oasis of calm, order and simple, natural wonder. These luxury spacious tents all have their own permanent slate built en suite. The decor is as beautiful as the place itself. The view over the lake is stunning. Our welcome was perfect, low key but very positive. The food there was delicious- fine dining al fresco. All food and drinks ( including beer and wine)were included in our package. The chilly morning and evenings of February were overcome with hot water bottles and heaters. There was a fire pit to welcome us to dinner each evening, and as we sat at our tables we each had a mini container of embers set down beside our chair. Every detail was covered. We were specifically asked not to tip staff and our final request to donate to a local charity as we left was politely refused. Such a welcome change in a society that demands cash at every turn.
We joined the village and farm tour and the evening nature walk. Both were fantastic and really made us feel that we had connected with this lovely land and the people who live there. This place is locally owned and run and contributes significantly to its local community in all sorts of practical ways. Would that more of the relatively wealthy landed gentry of India took such a responsible attitude.

On the recommendation of a friend who stayed here in 2009, and our travel agent, we had 2 lovely nights at Chhatra Sagar.
The hosts (Raj and Harsh) were extremely friendly and helpful.
Meals were served on a patio overlooking the lake, which is a birdwatchers paradise.
Rooms are individual 'tents' with a large bathroom with shower, basin, dressing table etc. The walls of the bathroom are slate slabs from the local area.
We did the farm and village tour with Raj. He gave the history of the area, the farming arrangements, the crops, the local skills etc. We also visited a potter, shoemaker and silversmith in the small village nearby.
In the evening Nandi took us on a bird watching walk around the lake area. We saw at least 53 bird species during our time at Chhatra Sagar.
The walk was ended with a small drink bar and G&Ts.
All food, drinks and accommodation were included in the package. Its worth taking a couple of days here.

This place is a real gem, from the modern take on Rajasthani campaign tents, which are so well appointed and have everything you could want from a fantastic shower to hot water bottles in the bed. There are wonderful peaceful views over the lake from your outside seating area. The food is excellent and the staff knowledgeable and accommodating. The whole experience from start to finish was wonderful, our only regret was that we didn't book an extra night, so peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. A special thanks for the way they looked after our driver over night as well.

Room tip: There are only 11 tents and they are only open October to March, so book early.

This is the benchmark whereby we will judge other places to stay. Beautifully put together - tasteful, spacious, discrete, calm and delicious food. The owners and staff are utterly charming and have pitched this just right. Can't recommend it more highly.

Room tip: Make sure you stay more than one night - you'll regret it if you don't.
