Don't dare to stay in this place, the picture is so deceiving. The garden which is not shown in the photos are very dark, they don't turn the lights on in the corridor. The reception is not accommodating and doesn't even have the list of TV channels. When you call them they will just hang the phone without getting back... More

Its worth the money spent at Hotel Balsamand, Lakeview palace. The place is serene, peaceful, lush green. You would feel the royalty in every sq.ft of the 200 odd acres of the palace. Watch peacocks, birds, monkeys just outside the rooms. And the best part is food. Tell me one dish of Balsamand which is average. Excellent food, always freshly... More

What a fantastic surprise in Jodhpur. Expansive manicured gardens filled with peacocks, friendly monkeys and lovely wildlife. The former horse stables tastefully converted into lovely guest rooms with a unique charm. On arrival we were presented with a fruit basket and homemade cookies. On the second evening a fresh baked cake awaited us. Pool with a red sandstone colonnade and... More

At this time the hotel was almost vacant which I was very happy with. While I was out of the room for most part of the day, the early mornings were very quiet and peaceful. The garden is in great shape and you can find peacocks in the garden. The food was also good and the staff was helpful and... More

Balsamand Lake Palace is 75% nature and 25% hotel. The lawns, gardens, decades-old trees, peacocks, langoors, horses and the lake overwhelm the limited number of rooms. Dinner in the garden under open skies is also more about being close to nature than the food. So, go there to sit back and relax...walk around, be in the pool once in a... More

This palace is located on a large estate with beautiful grounds. Peacocks and monkeys roam the grounds. Dinner on the lawn made me think of a colonial tea party. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly.

It took us some time to figure out the way to the hotel, since it is not listed / mapped on the GPS. Probably the reservation staff should provide clear instructions to reach the place over email. However, after having located it away from the hustle and bustle of Jodhpur city, it was like finding a gem in a treasure... More

We enjoyed our 2 night stay on this royal property. The ambling gardens, the lake, the peacocks, the quaint bridges and the palace itself made our stay very memorable. The check in was very smooth and we were alloted 2 adjacent rooms. The rooms had a nice sit out where we spent our evenings catching up. The room was medium... More

The Bal Samand is truly stunning. We were welcomed by peacocks as soon as we got out of the taxi. The garden is beautiful, peacocks and other birds roam around freely. The rooms are made out of the old stables. They are quite spacious and have a small private outdoor verandah. The pool has a nice setting. This is a... More
