“Halfway point between Ranthambore and Agra.”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Another bungalow type resort with a difference. We arrived in the local vehicle of home made tractor/taxi due to the inability of the coach to traverse a way through the village between the road and the Resort. We spent some time with the local villagers who had staged a small reception for the tour party. All the kids wanted pencils and pens as there appeared to be a shortage of them at the local school.
Facilities are rather basic, but the food is good. There was local dancing and music in the evening before dinner.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with friends

You do not get a five star hotel but a five star experience. The grounds are beautiful surrounded by the chalets. Staff very friendly and good fun, entertainment very enjoyable particularly if you join in. The camel ride to the village was good fun but the best was meeting the people, seeing their homes & watching a local lady cook.

A lovely oasis away from the madness. The staff were so kind and helpful and enjoyed chatting to us as much as we enjoyed them. The dancing and fire show was amazing ,one of the dancers and I swopped jewellery ...What a lovely memory .The camel trip through the village was great fun and a real pleasure to meet such lovely people. I took sweets, pens, balls and paper (wished i'd taken more and some books) and the children were so excited, I had to sign my name for them all which was a great honour and fabulous memories. Such a peaceful place I didn't want to go to bed and miss the beauty of it.

Room Tip: All rooms face onto lovely gardens and are a short walk to the restaurant.

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.
