We went to Neemrana fort palace after lot of discussion on nearby places for a night or two on the occasion of our wedding anniversary , as it happened to be on Tuesday so weekend packages were out . Neemrana has the advantage of being nearer to gurgaon and Delhi, just two hrs drive from Delhi. Our stay was comfortable as we have chosen a palace for three. It could comfortably house four of us. It is a nice property , staff is polite but not well trained. Food is not upto the mark, it has lot of room for improvement . It's rather expensive too. Neemrana policies are not family friendly . Children below 4 is free and children upto nine are charged fifty percent and any child above nine is charged full amount. Children upto 12 are considered free in most of the five stars and here it actually pinches you especially if you have children aged 10 and 11. Cost becomes double the expected amount ,neemrana group must consider this point . It's a great property but tourism friendly policies should be adopted.
Linen and curtain quality needs huge improvement . Toiletries should include small tooth paste and may be brushes . Direction to various parts of the fort are not clearly written / visible. Night lighting is one of the big plus point . I appreciate morning and evening complimentary tea, however the venues for it is so far that most of the guests miss it . Swimming pools are nice and it's really great to have two swimming pools. A life guard should be employed at deep pool. Changing rooms should be adjacent to pool but they are so far flung and difficult to locate that you are either force to return to your room or change in toilet . Bath robes at least for female guests should be provided at pool as there are no nearby changing room especially at deep pool. Gym seems to be most neglected part of the palace . There were no instructors and it's in shabby condition.
Overall it was a good experience as it's nearer Delhi, driving time is less,Road is good, many eateries are there on highway, property is great , only if it could be managed more professionally and tourist friendly policies, it will be great destination. Food is actually not worth the prices charged , they must work on it to improve quality and buffet should have more varieties .
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Over the last three decades, the ‘Neemrana’ of the stunningly restored 15th century Fort-Palace, has come to mean many things. For architects it is a unique example of utter waste turned into a 14-tiered marvel with palace wings, courts and stepped gardens, felicitated with national and international awards. For guests, it means discovering over five centuries of history experienced with modern comforts. Only 100 kms from Delhi, just off the main highway NH8 to Jaipur, Neemrana Fort-Palace is a favourite site for celebrations, feasts, conferences, a quiet retreat for yoga and relaxation or India’s first site where you can indulge in five thrilling zip-line tracks that literally fly you in the sky. Built since 1464 CE, on a plateau of the two billion year old Aravalli ranges, this 14-tiered property sprawls across 10 green hectares / 25 acres. For guests, this offers 72 rooms / suites, 3 conference halls (Jazam, Qanat & Kasturi), hanging gardens, arched pavilions and balconies. The upper levels of the northern wing of the Fort-Palace can now be accessed from the car park by a 110 feet high lift which leads by the Saat Bagh to a second box lift. This architectural wonder can now also be enjoyed by the elderly and the less-abled who can be shown the upper parts carried on a palanquin chair by four able men ! Neemrana Fort-Palace has two spectacular pools that lean out to the sun. The upper pool is heated in the winter months to take the enjoyment of sunsets to another level. An intimate play area for young toddlers & the adjacent Neemrana eco-farm have been added recently so that you consume healthy organic food. Try our Maha Burj gold-platter thali for Rajasthani cuisine, or the buffet with a variety of cuisines that suits many palates. Wander the 2.4 hectares/6 acres of Palace with a self-guided multimedia tour. Ride a camel/camel cart or a vintage car. Walk out to the 16th century step well which descends 7 floors into the earth. Feel a new Indian high. To have you here is to share our life’s vision of how ruins can revitalise a whole region. Neemrana not only strive to revive and restore the heritage structure but it also generates jobs and economic opportunities hiring and consuming locally. It is no wonder that Neemrana has been listed in the 100 things you must do on the planet Earth before its time for you to leave it ! But when this list was made, only one Neemrana existed – now there are 23 ! ... more less
