“Superb spot away from it all!”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

What a find! Lovely, tranquil spot in the countryside between Agra & Jaipur consisting traditional (yet air conditioned!) cabins set around a peaceful green, ideal for a snooze under a tree. Great food cooked on site from veg from their own garden. Great, friendly staff. Even took a camel cart ride to local village & school.

Firstly, i wholeheartedly agree with Soozsierra's review. I would only add that the rooms are very comfortable, the entertainment was lovely and gave us all a chance to enjoy a fun night. At meal times the manager was telling every single guest what each dish was and also made sure that anyone who was a bit picky was given an alternative. He seemed to have more energy than the whole of our tour party put together, very enthusiastic. The visit to a family farm in the nearby village was very special. The children look like they do not have much but they always give a smile. Try not to be harsh if they ask for something. It is not a bad idea to buy a few bags of sweets or some pens to hand to local children, they really appreciate it.The tour we were on was by Newmarket Holidays (Taj and Tigers). Very well organised with a great guide (Bhovinder Singh). I strongly recommend you visit India at least once. Taj Mahal is truly special but the people more so.

Room Tip: the rooms are all the same so no need to fight for anything special. Beautiful setting with a mount...

Sadly we only stayed here for one night. How we wish it had been more. It was a very welcome stop on an unwise fairly hectic tour. The food was wonderful, especially as all the vegetables are grown locally. We had the priviledge to be taken to the village by camel cart. Such lovely friendly people. The evening was filled with music and dance. This place was one of the highlights of our holiday.

We arrived and were greeted by music and dancers which put a smile on everyone's faces. The food was the best we had during our stay in India and the rooms were authentic but great. Very beautiful surroundings with mountains and a lovely garden.
We were sad to leave!

We were looking to celebrate the new year weekend away from city in nature's lap and we got it plus 100% farm grown organic food. Its a comfortable drive of 4 hours from Delhi..inside a Rajasthani village exactly in the foothills of Aravalis. It was extremely peaceful & serene with lush green lawns and midst of nature. As to keep up with the nature there is no television or any background noise of any kind,which is excellent for a break from technology and unwind from work stress.. Although excellent mobile network :) .Lots of heritage places to explore are just around along with nature parks and trekking. It's a Family owned retreat so expect family treatment from owners and Zero comercialism -very friendly and polite staff.And if you are a foodie its a blessing..cos it got best home cooked fully organic healthy and Indian Food.
So go there to bask in country side fresh air/mesmerising nature beauty/out of the world healthy meals and lovely cottages with awesome cleaniness with equally feiendly staff and family treatment.
We planned our wedding there in future..and we will return :)

Room Tip: Pets are allowed so go there with your full family including furry member.:) Carry cash as they don...
