We reached the Village Retreat sitting in a cart, what I would call a tumbrel, drawn by a horse. Then after a welcoming drink we visited the village this was by camel cart, but I was too near to my camels bum for comfort. We were introduced to the villages whose children ran to meet us. We were made very... More

We were the only visitors staying on the night we were there, but we were treated like royalty. We had the choice of a camel and cart or the farm truck. We opted for the farm truck, which they draped the seats with cloth for us. It was an experience of rural India at its best. We had a cookery... More

Amazing service and very relaxing. Great insight into village life. Amazing staff but facilities basic and no wifi or TV. Hotel laid on entertainment and arranged a camel ride and cookery demonstration and massage. Food all organic and home grown and beautifully prepared. A great experience but one night more than enough

Afternoon tea on the lawn. Indian folk dance at night. The food I found the most interesting as most / nearly... More

Stayed as part of an organised tour of India’s Golden Triangle Stayed in an individual thatched cottage with terrace - basic but adequate and comfortable. Staying here was a highlight of the tour, and gave a chance to get a sense of the real, rural India. Built by the local prince, it enables additional skills and interaction by the local... More

Reached by tractor and trailer this is a lovely resort for experiencing rural India. Accommodation is bungalows set around lawn and garden. Rooms are clean with air conditioning, beds firm ( which I like ) and comfortable. The electricity and water can be temperamental so choose carefully when to wash your hair and make sure you have gel or wipes... More
