We stayed at Ratan Villas for 3 nights. What a delightful and quiet place to stay. Some of the rooms are in the old house, while others are in a new addition. The older rooms are very large, and have been modernized to meet current comfort levels. Our bathroom , while not Lux ,was very modern, comfortable, clean and functional. The bed is "firm", but I would not call it hard like may Indian beds. We had a nice sitting area in our room or you could sit on the balcony
The staff was friendly and very helpful. The family are usually around the property, and love sharing stories of the house's past life. Much of the old furniture, decorations, and landscaping have been preserved. There is a new swimming pool that was so enjoyable after a hot day of sightseeing in Jodhpur.
The dinning options are in the center courtyard. In the evening , candles are lit, and the courtyard takes on a very romantic feeling. The food was some of the best we had on our four week trip. The cook uses authentic recipies from the days of the marajahas. Some nights there is a buffet, but there is always a la carte choices. Breakfast has limited choices, but we always found pleanty to eat, and again very well prepared.
