A memorable stay but mixed experience. The positives:
- Hotel is in a beautiful, remote location and provides an authentic experience in India (albeit has a colonial vibe), which is rare to find.
- The step-well dinner is a one-of a kind and should not be missed even though it is terrifically expensive- absolute highlight of our trip. We were on our honeymoon and found it mesmerising.
- Local staff are incredibly friendly, willing to help and knowledgeable. The village tour was also very interesting without being too intrusive into the lives of the locals.
- Food and drinks were top notch.
- We opted for a pool-side bungalow, for the novelty factor, and felt it was the poor cousin in comparison to the other rooms on offer even though it was clean and comfortable.
- We were a couple, yet our room had two single beds, which we found confusing and there were no other rooms to accommodate a double bed for us.
- It was very NOISY when we stayed there and found it difficult to sleep in the morning, owing both to the building works that was going on and the prayers from the local temple.
Not sure if we would recommend to others due to the construction works but we nevertheless enjoyed the experience!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Stepwell Dinner : Guests are taken on a magical journey from the Rawla through the village streets into the jungle before arriving at the 1100 year old “step well”. The magical setting is brought to life by dimly lit oil lamps that illuminate the setting through flickering light. The very private dinner is laid out in a traditional manner, it promises to remain unmatched experience to anything you will ever experience for a long time. The entire evening is like a secluded sanctuary inspired by the mystical past, bracing Indian spirituality and the unique experience of one being completely with nature. ... more less
