I didn't expect to like my tent so much. It was nice and cozy. I enjoyed hearing the nighttime animal noises and the morning birds chirping. No tv and no internet. At the dining tent, I had my first American toast and peanutbutter. It was a real treat. I chose not to take a shower, but it would have been possible. There was hot water for 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours at night. I went for a camel ride here and also watched some traditional dancing and music around a campfire. This is in the state of Rajasthan and the website is www.aagmanindia.com
I do recommend this for something off the beaten path.
