“A wonderful retreat”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Our stay of 2 nights proved to be a perfect antidote to an intense tour of Rajasthan. We loved the gardens, our room, the service and the location of the property. And hanging out at the pool is an idyllic experience. The staff went way beyond what is expected when they called the driver we had arranged ourselves, to ensure that he would be at the hotel at 4am. We enjoyed every moment at the resort.

Room Tip: Some rooms have their own pools. The advantage is the privacy but a big negative could be a family n...

Meandering pool villa with own steps into swimming pool...bliss! Rooms were huge, bed was amazing, one of the best nights sleep I have had.
Staff are very polite and attentive, always smiling. Good wine list (Indian house wine is a sauvignon blanc and a cab sav which is very drinkable, think Sula, owned by the same company as owns the hotel) and delicious food.

Views over the lake from the fish restaurant/ bar are some of the best I have seen anywhere in the world.

Mosquitoes are ket well under control even in the open air bathrooms.

Slightly felt the hotel let itself down by charging US$10 per day for wifi...tip for the hotel: include it in the roommate.

Expensive but worth every penny...would definitely stay again.

It is a must to take rice boat on a backwater cruise...very relaxing.

Room Tip: Choose the Meandering Pool Villas...incredible

We were treated with the best service. The food was great, the head cheff organized a cooking class for us free of charge. The rooms are the best you can find around.
