This experience was unbelievable, mostly due to the hospitality of the proprietors, Mr Singh and his son Ajay. As a lone female traveller I did not know what to expect but can only say this was one of the most remarkable stays in Rajasthan. The fort is incredible with its history and remarkable surroundings, including the lake and village, but... More

The stay in Fort Begu will be an unforgettable and rich experience - from the moment of warm welcome by Mr Singh and his son Ajay until the last minute of the stay. Everything is unique: Fort Begu itself with his impressive history and family stories told by Mr Singh and Ajay, the room which was an expression of stunning... More

My wife and I had a great time visiting Fort Begu in early March. As you can see from all of the past reviews, there is nothing but good things to say about it. It's a truly unique experience. While you certainly get the excellent treatment / food / surroundings that all of the previous reviews have mentioned, we also... More

For us this was the most memorable experience we had in India. We had only booked one night but wished we had booked more. Our hosts, Hari and Ajay welcomed us warmly when we arrived and let us choose our room which was a stunning large room with decorated coloured glass and plenty of windows to a great view. We...

We arrived at Fort Begu without knowing what to expect and was blown away by the unique experience and warm hospitality it offered. The fort is a stunning, ageing beauty with spacious and richly decorated suites. The gardens are lush and beautiful as well. But what makes this place special is the personal welcome that the royal hosts extend towards... More

My son and I arrived at this beautiful palace at a very difficult time for the family who were in mourning. We were treated with such grace and hospitality by the owner the old maharaja, his sons and grand daughters that I came away feeling that I had taken away a little bit of Fort Begu with me in my...

A busy 24 hours at this rambling 15th century fort which has only about five rooms for guests and as the family's involvement is very much hands-on it really does feel more like a royal home-stay than a hotel. Assuming he is in residence the Rawat himself (who inherited the title in 1947, aged 8) will make a great fuss... More

Fort Begu is truly a unique and authentic experience that at times convinces you you have arrived in 1930's India, or are a bit player in Jewel in the Crown (for those who know the 1980's UK TV series). It's amazing and quite like nothing else I've had the pleasure of discovering in 5 trips to India. Go with the... More

I happened upon this wonderful heritage property when I was looking to break up the drive between Ranthambore and Udaipur. What a lucky find! Other reviewers have gone into greater detail but I just wanted to add that it felt almost like visiting a private chateau in France. The buildings are lovely, the sunset at their lake palace is breathtaking... More

This is not going to be a review, rather this is going to be an exhaustive essay, because I have so much to write about this awesome heritage property with its AWESOMEST(if I may be allowed to coin this new word) hosts, that I may find it difficult to put a stop and may finally run short of words.
