“Charming, family-run fort in the small village of Rohet with a homely atmosphere and traditional Rajasthani style”
The 32 rooms are light and airy. Prettily decorated, they're differentiated by varied colour themes, distinctive frescoes, antiques, and handworked bed covers and pillows. They're scattered around the building and courtyards, mostly on the ground floor, and face onto the gardens or overlook the lake.
The suites are large and spacious and have a separate sitting area. Rooms 6 to 9 have the best bathrooms and look out over the swimming pool, but are less private. Rooms 12 and 21 to 27 have views of the lake. Room 31 is for horse lovers as it faces the stable courtyard. Room 15 has a terrace with a lake view .
All rooms enjoy seriously comfortable deep mattresses; the suites have superior goose down pillows. All are air-conditioned and have overhead fans, hairdryers, bathrobes and attached bathrooms with excellent Forest Essentials toiletries. Gorgeous old padlocks are used to lock doors.
Durri Khana, the original lounge and dining room with wooden ceiling, is in the centre of the house - it's now a comfortable lounge area with a card table and chess boards. There's a lovely open-sided restaurant, which overlooks the swimming pool and serves good continental and Indian cuisine. We tried paneer cheese and coriander along with sizzling chicken kebabs, which were basted with lemon juice by the cheery chef as he turned the meat over hot coals. Your choice of bread is cooked to order; lids are lifted on silver trays warmed by candles. Afterwards, you can take coffee in the relaxing bar. There's also a divine upstairs tented dining terrace, which is warm and cosy.
Most evenings, extravagant music and dance performances provide a delightful accompaniment to a poolside candle-lit dinner. It's also possible to order snacks or have breakfast by the pool, and room service is readily available. Picnics can be arranged if you're planning to go on one of the safaris.
