I had to pay for WiFi!! Hotel pretends to be top notch but is not succeeding in it. No cocktails. Bar, restaurant and reception not always occupied. Beautiful views and a great pool. Little quiet when we were there. Opportunity to take a run in the countryside. No tv in the room.

The Desert Resort in Mandawa features a unique desert-type architecture in the region: adobe buildings and bungalows with frescoes on the walls. One can love it of dislike it, we loved it. Definitively it gives this place its charm and character. It is also very peaceful, being situated in the countryside about two miles outside the town of Mandawa. The... More

We stayed 1 night here in December and it was cold. The suite we had was very spacious but the small heater did not warm it up at all. The bathroom was a little odd as there were 2 actual rooms that had a shower each but toilet in only one. That also made it cold. But the whole resort... More

The place has charm and each room is different and unique - design and style were great. Service-wise thou, it needs quite a lot to get better! Not really friendly, you wait and wait for everything (yes, I know we are in India but still)... We had to have early breakfast and they started preparing when we were about to... More

We stayed here for a couple of days to ring in the new year. We were a fairly large group and got pretty good service. The resort itself is very well made with spacious rooms and clean bathrooms. The service staff definitely felt a bit over whelmed due to the new year party and more than usual number of guests.... More

Was there for a weekend full of music.. Nice and comfortable room, clean, big bathrooms and seating area in front of the room. Old world Chevrolet which doubles as a bar is an interesting concept.. The bajre ki roti that they served with gud was simply heavenly.. Overall a Nice weekend getaway ,,, Relaxing

This was our second visit to this place. Last time we were sightseeing the area, this time we mostly relaxed at the resort. The pool has just been renovated and is quite nice. The snack menu was nice and you should really try the Mango Lassi. We had great service. We stayed in one of the detached suites which is... More

Although I am too much in love with Rajasthan culture, & would love to explore every possible nook & corner of the desert state,I was a bit skeptical visiting this unknown small town in Shekhawati region. A friend agreed to accompany & the area was never even heard of, searched entirely on net. But once I reached this resort, my... More
