This will be a peaceful respite from a busy tour in India, and especially of interest to birdwatchers. The setting on the reservoir is beautiful, and very serene. Although it was priced similarly to luxury properties where we stayed in India - such as the historic Lake Palace, or The Serai at Jaisalmer (the latter also a tented camp), it is a more rustic experience altogether. The tents are comfortable, but ours at least, did have some issues with maintenance and servicing. They are also closer together than it might seem from the website pictures (unless you are up on the hill). We didn’t experience any sleep disturbances however – the other guests must have been as tired as we were from the daily activities. (Even loud noises during the night from the nearby village did not keep us awake.) It is the included activities which set Chhatra Sagar apart. The evening walk up the hill for sundowners, the morning visit to the village and the two-hour bird-watching walk in the afternoon - all were quite different to what we experienced elsewhere. All were interesting and much enjoyed. Meals are included and are simple but tasty, with a lot of variety. Breakfasts are served at the table (no buffet) with eggs cooked to order, and some toast and pastries as well as an unusual but pleasant pomegranate, yoghurt, honey - and cornflakes - mix. Tea, coffee, juice. Lunches and dinners were served at the table from large pots, with five different curries and rice at each meal, plus breads, soup and dessert. All very good, and I think that they hardly repeated a dish. Chickpea flour dumplings and eggplant in a tamarind sauce were standout dishes for us. Second helpings, and more, were encouraged. Local, organic ingredients. You can buy alcohol, and the prices were reasonable (unlike all the luxury hotels). WiFi connection was available occasionally – and for free. No tipping policy. We both enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it as a way to see something different on your India tour, especially the village visit and meeting some of the people there. It is a low-key sort of experience overall.
