We stayed in the Wilderness Camp (same owners but much better), and we stopped here for an "optional" lunch. The place is not as nice as some reviews say, and the meal was expensive and not very good.

We had a lovely room with own bathroom and enormous balcony. Staff are delightful, the food was excellent, the service attentive, the hotel shop had a lovely selection of gifts at extremely reasonable prices, the internet was free and the safari to the bisnoi village fascinating. A great place to spend a couple of days relaxing, especially if you can ride as they have an excellent stables.

I recently completed a charity rickshaw rally from Jaisalmer to Kochi, Kerela and the Rohet Garh was a very needed and welcomed rest along the way.

Our rickshaw broke down in the darkness as we pulled in to Rohet and we were in despair whether to try and continue on the highway or cut our losses and find somewhere to spend the night. We went with the later, with our own safety at the forefront of our mind but had no idea where to look. After asking a few locals, we were pointed down a side road and start pushing our rickshaw in to the darkness. It is safe to say moral was low at this point but we rallied the efforts of the children running along beside us to help us push the auto rickshaw down the windy lanes for the kilometre from the main road.

As we reached the brow of the hill we could see some lights in the distance and we were struck by the sight of a gorgeous palatial building. From the outside the building is gorgeous but as soon as you walk through the enormous arched doorway it is like being transported in to another land. It is an understatement to say we were underdressed, with our dust ridden clothes, but the hotel manager (I forget his name) welcomed us in and offered us complementary drinks. We only stayed for 1 night because of the hectic nature of our rally but the service we experienced was of the highest standard. We all felt very much at home and had a lovely conversation with the owner, explaining the purpose of our trip. The food was exceptional, we enjoyed the gorgeous buffet dinner followed by entertainment in the courtyard of the fort. The magician particularly blew us away!

For the remainder of our trip we constantly referred to the Rohet Garh as the Oasis in the Desert. It was such an unexpected delight topped off by the wake up call in the morning with chai tea.

I very much hope to come and stay again in the future, only for a few more nights this time.

Thank you everyone at RG.

Not as romantic as one might suppose....peacocks have a raucous call and very early!!!!
Lovely garden, tea on the lawn....super fun rooms but only the bedroom has air conditioning. going to the bathroom made it a sauna! We had the owner´s uncle´s room which was sweet. The owner was charming and had a drink with us before dinner. We loved it!

Room Tip: there are rooms at ground floor level if you are physically challenged.

Just off the highway between Udaipur and Jodhpur - Rohet Garh offers a peaceful retreat and a chance to catch your breath. Once inside the gates of this ancestral fort you are enveloped by the sense of quiet and serenity. The hotel surrounding a landscaped garden with wandering peacocks where you can sit and unwind away from the rest of the world. The generous hosts and obliging staff attending to your every need. A terrace restaurant a new addition overlooking the lake and another roof top dining room overlooking the pool - the food and service excellent.
Take a ride on the famous Mawari horses out to the desert camp or just relax and read - this is a must do if travelling through Rajhastan!

Room Tip: All rooms are beautifully appointed !

We had a delightful 3 night stay at this beautiful ancestral home in Rohet Garth. The charming owners, Mr and Mrs Singh along with their competent and attentive managers Vimal and Preven made us feel very welcome and the level of service throughout the hotel was excellent. The gardens are an oasis of quietness and colour and one can enjoy a lake view whilst having a drink or snack on the roof terrace. The public areas are welcoming and colourful with beautiful old furniture and pictures and the setting of the main restaurant overlooking a courtyard and swimming pool is wonderful. The food was very good and tasty with a wide choice.
The only downside was the swimming pool which was unheated and needed a good dose of chlorine at the time we stayed. Whilst this is an hotel for relaxing they offer activities such as horse riding, visits to local villages, cycling and cooking classes at extra cost, but they are enjoyable and time flies by too quickly ! We were sad to leave !

People who don't want to stay in crowded metros can be a good choice to stay just forty km from Jodhpur on the way to Udaipur and Mount Abu. It is nice small town to see rural life and culture. Beautiful heritage hotel with very good service, good clean rooms, good food. They have beautiful pool and very good roof top restra.
I really like this place and want to stay some time in future.
Good Luck!!!

Rohet Garh is a classified Heritage Hotel. Since 1989 it has been nurtured and developed with great love and care by the family into one of the finest Heritage hotels in the country. No new building has been added in the renovation process, but rather, old edifices have been skillfully redesigned to create a heritage property that has few parallels. Situated on the banks of a lake and set in the midst of rural surroundings, it is a haven of peace and tranquility. Sprawling lawns and manicured gardens, which invite a multitude of birds and dancing peacocks, herald your entry into this oasis where the bird song is the only sound you will hear. A superb swimming pool with four charming pavilions entices you for a refreshing dip. Often dinner is served by the poolside as folk musicians enliven the evening atmosphere. An elegant, beautifully appointed lounge, serene verandahs, and terraces with breathtaking views, make perfect venues for relaxation. The thirty-four individually decorated rooms add a touch of class. Pioneers of activities such as ‘The Village Safari’, and offering an array of activities- from an extensive equestrian program to culinary workshops, Rohet Garh has set the highest standards in quality and efficiency, offering its guests an experience beyond compare.
