Good hotel... The new rooms are much better then the older ones. View from balcony is just awesome... Service is pretty good... Food is OK.. Swimming pool is the only thing which I didnt like... Overall a good place to stay..

The Dera... Name itself justifies the resort ambience... Amidst the Aravali ranges... A resort comprising of tent style cottages.. With pathways connected to all in the contoured terrain... The best part of this resort is of being natural... U feel as if u are living in the lap of nature... Cottages viewing the Aravali ranges, a small waterbody, lots many... More

We had hoped this place would live up to its 'Eco-Lodge'/honeymoon idyl but alas, it was a bit disappointing, especially for the money (way more than we had spent elsewhere in India). The 'tents' are a bit underwhelming and the campfire and dance show really disappointing (the dancers did not seem to want to be there at all). It was... More

I had a very comfortable stay with my family at Dera Kumbhalgarh. The resort is beautifully located among trees away from highway. It is very well done with lovely tents and restaurant. The tents and cottages are very spacious and comfortable. The food is very good and staff is courteous. The resort is not too far from the fort either.

We stayed there for 3 nights. We totally enjoyed our stay. The resort is in a beautiful location surrounded by mountains. The rooms are decently decorated (not too classy), but very good comparing the location. Great service by all staff members. The food quality in the restaurant is also good. We had breakfast and dinner included in our package. The... More

This resort and Kumbhalgarh are the places where I wish to come at least once every year. I have been to 'The Dera' 3 times. The location is the best in Kumbhalgarh. The serenity what one can get after coming to this resort and place can not be possible anywhere. One can enjoy the stay at this hotel rather than... More

The hotel appearance wise is good but is not safe from wild animals. the bathrooms are pretty clean and tidy. Rooms are clean but scary. We had a close encounter of a panther cub entering the tent and sleeping with us inside with us though we thought initially its a wild cat. The food is tasty but you do not... More

Kumbhalgarh has a lot of hotels and they overly priced, but Dera Kumbhalgarh has the advantage of a very good view and has a very reasonable tariff. Rooms are clean, staff is good and it's a safe place. I have travelled a lot and i have noticed in which ever property owner's themselves are involved you would experience lesser complaints... More

Hi, We (2 families) were at Dera for a day between 26th-27th March 2014. We enjoyed great food. Swimming pool was very pleasing. Dera was a different experience. Bharat's hospitality was memorable. Kids fed the birds during breakfast & were thrilled. Folk dance was arranged in the evening. That was a value addition. The first room had a small leak... More
