“A specialist operator offering customised itineraries to fit your personal travel dreams, in and around Rajasthan”
The accommodation options in Northern India are just incredible: royal Rajastani palaces, sandstone havelis, luxury desert tents and jungle lodges. We've reviewed the best of these in extensive detail, so read our reviews and tell Oriental Routes which ones you'd like to stay at during your trip. Alternatively, ask for their other options; they'll have something to suit every budget and preference.
Our reviews also cover each hotel's food. We still have fond memories of fiery curries with fresh coriander, tiny pakoras with tamarind sauce and pomegranate seeds, and sugar-loaded gulab jamun. Many hotels offer a Western menu too, but we went Indian all the way.
Things we loved...
Travelling with children in India is a unique experience. The dramatic forts and fairytale palaces will capture their imagination; the city cows, hectic bazaars and desert camels will delight them. Most hotels welcome families and can provide extra beds or family rooms, as well as Western or mildly-spiced Indian food
Extra Beds Available, Family Rooms
Babysitting: Babysitting available by arrangement
Oriental Routes can organise whatever you want. If you want to be met from your international flight and have a private driver for your whole holiday, you've got it. If you're covering a lot of ground, you can spend several hours in the car so it pays dividends to have a friendly and informative driver - not to mention a comfortable car for those pot-holed roads. If you want to mix things up and take a train or an internal flight, the company can book those for you, and arrange transfers to and from the station/airport.
