Spent 3 wonderful nights at this amazing and special hotel. The rooms are well appointed and spotlessly clean and look out on to beautiful gardens that encompass some 60 acres. The peacocks and sound of birds is a welcome relief after the hussel of city life. Great wifi connectivity regardless of where you are on the property. When it comes... More

We enjoyed our meal in lovely surroundings but there were very few other diners and it seemed rather formal. Service was excellent, friendly and informative. I had the desert beans and my partner the bass- both delicious- with cheese naan. His kesari kulfi was beautifully presented and very tasty.

Beautiful grounds and swimming pool, very relaxing and lovely ambience. Food good but Restaurant was completely empty except for myself and my daughter. Was astonished to be charged 5,600rps for a bag of laundry....exorbitant pricing!

One of the best place in Jodhpur. Such calm and serenity. The restaurant has open kitchen and they have bonfire for each table.

I have been there in Restaurant, as waiter serves without any Manners. Felt disheartened for Poor Hospitality so left the place in between. Clerk manners are also not good. My Advice is not to visit if u want ur Self respect.

This is a lovely way to spend a winter evening by the fire and eat tandoori food. The food is superb. The dal makhani and the kebab plater. The portions are generous and well cooked. The service excellent. It is very popular place to dine with the hotel guests.

The ambience makes it seem a bit crowded. But that belies its true nature. The food, particularly the speciality rajasthani dishes like ghate ke subji and lal mass are divine. The service is truly excellent - piping hot rotis arrive almost by magic. For that alone, they deserve their great rating.

Food was finger-licking good, specially the dal makhani over there was really appetizing. Also the garden restaurant is pretty well maintained. The staff is polite and really welcoming.
