We stayed for two nights part way through a month long stay in India. From the reviews on TA we thought it would be the break we needed and were not disappointed. The entrance to the complex is impressive. The layout of the whole place is quite beautiful and very well maintained. We stayed in a double cottage which was one of a group of 4 or 5 but it was ideal as I think we were the only ones in that particular part so we had a quiet and large front patio area to ourselves.
The poolside restaurant serves excellent food. The breakfast is good. The cocktails by the pool are great. A great place to walk around as there are a number of shops and a very good museum and it is lovely just being that close to the Palace itself. Compared to the rest of our trip it was like being cocooned on a little island, untouched by life beyond the gates. That was great for a couple of days to re-charge ourselves and be ready for the streets again.
It proved to be quite an expensive luxury break as it is, of course, all too easy to run up a bill at such a place. Nevertheless we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would return.
