This is not the place for anyone who wants merely to tick off a list of temples, palaces and museums. This is the place to enjoy total immersion in tranquillity, culture, history and hospitality.
We arrived at sunset and, on passing through the imposing fort gate, were immediately captivated by our first view of the inner fort and peacocks strutting through the courtyards.
The spacious suites are beautifully decorated and well appointed with impressive, fully-equipped bathrooms,
Excellent, personal service. The food is fabulous; invariably served by Mr Singh snr and Ajay themselves, and an impressive wine cellar (including some really classy Indian reds and whites).
Fort Begu is undergoing a careful, sympathetic and tasteful renovation and has great potential to be one of the truly grand heritage hotels. The difference here is the family touch. After three days we felt we had known everyone all our lives and were truly sad to leave.
There are enough sights in the immediate area to satisfy a traveller’s curiosity, though the neighbouring village of Begu is rather scruffy, and It’s close enough to Chittor to make a day trip to see the sights there. (as well as being a good stopover between Udaipur & Bundi.
Enough of my hyperbole; experience it for yourself!
