We arrived in Bijay Niwas after a hectic trip to Ajmer Dargah and Pushkar. The place is 70 km from Ajmer...quite a distance in a town called Bijainagar. I was exhausted but the fatigue gave way to exhilaration on my first look at the place. A narrow dusty road in a provate estate leads you to a fairy world...a beautiful little palace in what looks like wilderness. I stayed in the suite and my experience is largely with the suite and not the small cottages that are also part of the property. If you want to feel/ enjoy the place gp for the Suite experience!!!
The evening is great in the spacious lobby on the ground floor decorated with antiques. This is actually a hunting lodge and everything here transports to a world 100 years back.
The morning is the most memorable part with the chirping of birds and peacock in the lawn ...what an experience.
We took the breakfast in the lawn. The staff were friendly, simple people including the Manager who were so helpful. This place is actually in the midst of an orchard called 'Model Farm' and you can take a walk in the orchards with help of the staff who are more than happy to oblige.
The food was simple and tasty...almost like home cooked meal. This is one of a kind of experience for people who love heritage holiday.
Strongly recommended!!! We left for Jodhpur in the afternoon after enjoying this beautiful property.
