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

Very nice property. Peaceful and serene. Peacocks were found in abundance. Wonderful view of the lake. Barbeque in the night is also very tasty. Rooms are well equipped and hotel staff is friendly. Had an amazing stay!

We stayed at Bal Samand during our trip to Rajasthan last month. It is an amazing hotel offering terrific landscaping, comfortable rooms and excellent service. We stayed in quaint rooms which have been converted out of erstwhile horse stables. We had candle light dinner in their specialist Kebab restaurant which was awesome. We would like to acknowledge Ms. Nipurnima who... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, having been bumped out of the Welcom Hotel because of a wedding. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, but the restaurant is very mediocre and the food ordinary. Breakfast choice was very limied and disappointing. Both nights there were weddings with loud music and we were not able to use the swimming pool because... More
