Saharia Organic Resort
Ranked #137 of 450 Speciality Lodging in Jaipur
Reviewed 29 April 2015

We had big expectations from this place and booked 3 nights well in advance. When we arrived the staff just stood in front of us and looked at us, we had to ask them which huts were booked for us, then had to ask them to bring the mattresses and arrange the beds.
The sink and the toilet in the outside bathroom were all green and dirty, we had to ask them to clean them. The light bulb in the bathroom was full of water, we also asked them to change it.........
From the moment we arrived, the cook was pressing us to order dinner, but nobody explained how the meals work there, what's the choice, what are the prices. As we were all sick that day we decided to skip dinner.
In the middle of the night we woke up in panic as a rat climbed into our bed and was walking over us. It took us more than an hour to chase him away. In the morning we just asked for a cup of tea and 2 chapatis and were charged the costs of a full breakfast. That was enough for us, we called a taxi and left the place.

My "Poor" rating is not for the quality of the accommodation, we were expecting simple and basic comfort, not for sharing our bed with a rat but for not getting the basic welcome and service one expects in such a place. The staff hardly speaks English and it is very hard to communicate with them.

The only positive experience we had there was the swimming pool.

Room Tip: Avoid this place.

Reviewed 3 January 2015 via mobile

Went to the resort for 3 days from 30 December 2014 to 2 January 2015. I was quite excited by the photos and was really looking forward to ringing in the new year away from the mad crowd and noisy cities. Unfortunately that couldn't be done as another group of about 10 people checked in who were noisy and intrusive beyond belief. They had the audacity to come to our room and ask us if they could use our washrooms!!! That when they themselves were checked in and were given the cottages. To my surprise, the staff allowed them to have a free run of the place as if we guys weren't guests at all or did not exist! The supervisor of the resort Bhupender, was a harried man, to say the least. The poor guys was trying to keep the place functioning smoothly but the chef there, Suresh, was the one who ensured our stay there was horrendous! On the first 2 days of our stay, we were given the same food for lunch and dinner. And I don't mean similar kind of food, I mean the SAME food. On asking the so called chef why we were being given the same daal for 3 meals in a row, he conveniently placed the blame on the owner of the property saying he has been asked to prepare daal which grows there on the farm, all meals and all days!! Irrespective of what the guests say!! Well I didn't buy his excuse whether it was the truth or not. We asked Bhupender to get us some eggs and sodas when he went to the market, which he did and handed them to the Chef to keep in the fridge. When we sat down for drinks in our room, lo and behold, the sodas were gone and so were a couple of eggs, about which the chef had no idea as to who took them, from the fridge in HIS kitchen!!
Didn't manage to get in touch with the owner after checking out even though we had met him the day we checked in, as he was not in town on 2 January. If you are reading this Vinod Ji, the chef of yours is no good at managing the affairs. All he does all day is boss around the poor cleaning guy, Ram Kumar and the supervisor Bhupender.
The property has so much potential which is going to waste because of poor day to day management and one bad fish which is polluting the pond.

Saharia is a retreat for me and my family that we look forward to every winter. We have been visiting this place since 2008 and just love it for its rustic and rural feel. It is not like a hotel and it lacks amenities like hot water (available in a bucket when you ask for it). But this is what attracts us to this place. It is like visiting a village house. You get to sleep in thatched huts on Charpoys, get up in the morning to the chirping of trees, have nice healthy breakfast and the fresh greens plucked from the fields.
The fact that each hut has an en-suite bathroom makes it very comfortable. Spending the day enjoying the winter sun makes it an idyllic place for rejuvenation. If you are travelling with young children, it is advisable to carry non perishable eatables for their requirement. As they not have anything available besides the main meals. Food is basic but caters to your need.
For me and my family always a great experience.

We have stayed in Saharia Organic Resort on a number of occasions. With children and without.
The resort is half an hour before (22kms) Jaipur on the NH8. Make a note of JCPL factory as a major landmark.The accomodation consists of 9 cottage like rooms and a courtyard, and three huts done up in village style. The only modern part is the ensuite bathrooms. The beds are charpoy style. In winter heavy rajais are provided. The meals provided are authentic Rajasthani, though you can request for your choice of meal and also help in preparing it.
If you enjoy a peaceful break away from the maddening hustle and bustle of the city, you will like it here. You are well taken care of by friendly and helpful staff and family. Summers can be harsh, the rest of the year is good. Whether you would like to help in planting trees, repairing a thatched roof, cooking a meal, working around the farm, reading a book, going for long walks in the village, this is for you. And if you are lucky you may get a tonga ride tour of the village and around.
There was an outdoor swimming pool, but you will need to check whether it is in use.
Rent is really low, plus cost of meals.
