Reviewed 1 July 2014

A well laid out hotel. Had the privilege of having two meals at the pool side. The hotel caters for all types of cuisine, however do try the local fare. The desi chicken and lal maas is out of this world, the continental stuff was average though. The hotel is beautifully constructed and the rooms are extremely comfortable. Overall a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Corner suite is recommended.

We arrived at the hotel at around 3 pm after a 9 hour drive from Ahmedabad. The approach road from the highway was not very good. The main gate was quite impressive, but it was nothing compared to what we saw as soon as we drove past the main gate. This hotel is beautiful to look at, fascinating architecture & intricate workmanship.
The main building which is a two level building houses all the dining facilities, bar and shop on the right hand side and rooms on the ground & first floor on the left side. In addition, there are three blocks behind the main building separated by lovely gardens, one each on the left side, right side and at the rear. The block are accessed by covered walkways with marble flooring. There is a beautiful swimming pool the left side block and the rear block. We did not dare to swim, as it was December; however it was lovely sitting by the poolside.
We had a garden facing room on the first floor in the rear block. The room was fairly large with a nice clean bathroom. The interiors were done in typical Rajasthani style, with a lot of vibrant colours.
The food was generally good, specially the local speciality Lal Maas. The main building has a terrace from where you can watch the sunset - a lovely sight. The city is quite close to the hotel, yet far enough to provide a sense of solitude.
The staff was efficient & helpful. Highly recommended if you want a princely experience !

I must start by expressing my heart felt thanks to Mr. Shashi. He had promptly arranged to book my request at the last hour.
Fort Rajwada. As the name suggests, exudes royalty. Lovely ambience, very professional staff.
This place is a relatively new construction (about 12 yrs) (please correct me if not), my room was 202. All the basic parameters were full filled. Spacious, clean, fresh linen, well equipped mini bar, hygienic bathroom.
The in house restaurant has an impressive menu on offer. Meals were equally good.
I will surely love to come back and will recommend to all fellow travelers.
Good luck. God bless.

We really could not fault this hotel the ambiance and large spaces gives you the feeling of freedom, peace and tranquility, even though at times the hotel was busy.
Efficient check in, friendly helpful staff. Our generous sized rooms which overlooked the gardens were beautifully appointed Indian style. The bed was comfortable, and room very clean. We enjoyed the stunning surroundings of the pool area which was impeccably clean, attendants on hand to move chairs and provide towels, and deliver our cool drinks poolside.

The comprehensive buffet breakfast served both European & Indian food. We only had room service while during our stay which was delivered hot and quickly.

The wonderful sunsets have to be admired from the roof top bar, awesome!

On a tour of Rajistan through Indus Travel of Richmond, B.C. Canada and Hi Tours of India. Fort Rajwada given a 5 star rating by Tour company and held great promise, looked great from the outside, lobby great, pool area great and then you get to your room and find they look old and dated, plus very cold, poor lighting, and only a small space heater again. Bathrooms old & poorly maintained. Our view was looking out between two wings of the hotel, no view. Looked like a 5 star from the exterior but alas only a 3.5 because of the rooms. Room disappointment shared by others on tour. It is hard to understand why the owners would wow guests coming into the property with the entrance to the grounds, beautiful lobby, grounds, pool & spa areas and then let them down with the rooms. Another 5 star that charges for Wi-Fi, jeesh!!
Recommend they put some money into the rooms to continue the wow factor.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks out onto the grounds or the pool area.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your frank comments. Such comments help us to know where we are lacking and what needs immediate attention. To give you the inside story - All the major maintenance and renovation is taken up in a phased manner during the summer months. During your stay with us half the Hotel rooms were under renovation . The rooms have been renovated now , the bathrooms have been totally redone and you would find them at par with the exteriors of the hotel and to your liking.

With regards

I wasn't sure about this hotel before we arrived as some of the reviews on Tripadvisor were slightly negative. We thought it was excellent.

It is a new build but in a traditional style and very sympathetic to the desert surroundings. Our room was in a courtyard off an open air path through the hotel. It was large, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was fine and the staff were all very polite and gave good service.

The swimming pool was a decent size and very welcome in the heat of the afternoon, it was well attended with towels being provided. I even managed a nice lunch - spicy potato sandwich with chips! A lot nicer than it sounds.
