A wonderful oasis of calm amongst the hustle and bustle of Rajasthan; this really is worth a detour for anyone partaking a tour of Rajasthan. Breathtaking views, impeccable service and every conceivable comfort; it certainly stirs the imagination with a sense of ancient history skilfully blended with a sensitive restoration programme. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to re-visit one... More

This beautifully and sensitively restored hill top fort was the most heavenly place to stay amidst a very rural unspoilt landscape humming with life from the village below to the multitude of birds soaring above, with the sounds of jackals in the hills at night beneath a waxing moon. Blissful tranquility, thankfully no television, infinite views through fascinating Moghul architectural... More

We spent three nights in this marvellous fort hotel situated in wonderful unspoilt countryside to the south of Udaipur. What makes Bambora so special is that you really feel that you are off the beaten track - well away from the hordes of tourists in Udaipur. The place is real Rajasthan, beautifully restored and decorated in traditional style. Life can... More

My entire family comprising of 6 adults and two children were off to Udaipur for a 2 night stay by road. One of our friends had mentioned that just out of Udaipur was this heavenly place called Hotel Karni Fort which was one of the best experiences of their life. We decided to break journey by spending the night at... More

We stayed one night here - in a third floor twin room (one of my sons slept on the jokhara, the window seat area, with a mattress, bolsters and cushions). The view was lovely, and we watched the partridges and nesting swifts flying around at sunselt. In the distance, we could hear the sounds of a wedding, and a woman... More

I was quite disappointed with karni fort hospitality. Problems faced 1) no directions to reach the fort- this fort is in the middle of nowhere. There were literally no motivation from the staff/management to help us get to the fort. We were literally roaming around on the deserted road in the middle of the night with our cabbie. There was...

Set in remote & dramatic countryside the fort has been transformed from a ruin into a luxurious and stylish hotel. Suites are spacious, bright, beautifully furnished, and feature round beds in the turret rooms. There are views from everywhere - don't miss the sunset from the makeshift bar at the top of the fort. Lovely swimming pool as well, the... More

I love this place for the stunning view, and extremely warm and friendly staff. Though the hotel isn't equipped with amenities like TV, or fancy housekeeping services, it does its best to make you feel comfortable. One review here spoke about filthy sheets et al, but I didn't find it so. Only one man took care of cleaning ALL the... More

Karni Fort Bombora is a peaceful haven with superb views. We gazed from our oriel window across layer upon layer of Aravallis Hills - so familiar with the moghul miniaturist of long ago. This heritage hotel has been thoughtfully restored and enlarged, and each room has a view across the hills and is decorated with unique cut glass mosaics. The... More

We stayed here for a couple of days to unwind after travelling. It served this purpose well. We had a lovely turret room - air conditioned. The water worked fine. Room could have been cleaner - quite a few insects and a big ant problem. Staff were friendly enough, and the food was Ok if not outstanding. Very big portions... More
