Charming rooms in beautiful garden setting off the beaten track. Friendly staff, great service. Run by family who cares about the planet and local community. Amazing historic havelis and museum in town not to be missed. Good internet.

Lovingly hand-crafted architecture of natural materials, delicious organic food, and family-run hospitality make Apani Dhani an extremely pleasant place to stay. The family is committed to responsible tourism, support of local traditions, and environmentally friendly technologies including the solar energy that runs everything. Bougainvilleas surround a peaceful sitting pavilion in the heart of the complex, and at night, there is...

I am shocked that this place is considered 'genuine' by anyone. Perhaps newbies to India might be taken in by what masquerades as an eco lodge, but in effect is an 'ego' lodge - namely, the owner's. There is nothing ecological about this place - it's a small, indifferently run farm surrounded by a semi-industrial, semi-agricultural landscape. It is lacking...

Ramesh C J, Owner at Apani Dhani Eco-Lodge, responded to this review

We are surprised that a place which won an international award in sustainable tourism can be a “masquerade” , that a place highly recommended by major travel guide books whose writers come regularly to check can be seen again as “ a total scam”. The whole property is solar powered, solar heated. We recycle waste, do organic gardening, support local...

My wife and I had such an incredible experience staying at Apani Dhani. It was great to have abbot of downtime on our trip to experience the local culture and truly amazing sights in the local villages. Good and hospitality were top notch. The activities like the village tour, havelis, and bracelets are highly recommended!

We decided to spend several days with Ramesh at Apani Dhani, after we had read some excellent online reviews and articles. Apani Dhani is an eco lodge with a difference. You never feel as though you are sacrificing luxury or putting up with spartan surroundings. The lodge is really beautifully laid out inside with bougainvillea flowers providing a cool and...

Apani Dhani is a beautiful, simple family-run haven just on the outskirts of Nawalgarh in Rajasthan. We were a group of mainly French-speaking yoga teachers and were lucky to have the place to ourselves for practice and relaxation.The rooms are huts built in traditional style around a central courtyard. Ramesh and his family are really living his dream of creating...

Gajendra and his family are beautiful hosts, in a beautiful place which has been so carefully created to follow the vision of his dad. The guesthouse is beautiful and peaceful, with the large vegetable garden providing a beautiful backdrop for reading, or doing a tie and dye workshop. The tours to the havelis and local farms were incredible and unforgettable....

This place is a piece of paradise in a small town that is well worth a visit. Beautifully appointed rooms, all of natural earth or stone construction, thatch roofs, lovely open common areas and spotlessly clean bathrooms. I was sick during most of my stay here with my family, but apani dhani was a great place for me to recuperate....
