“A decent place to overnight on the Delhi Jaipur highway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2009

Set in a large well kept garden this modernistic 1960s style hotel is slowly being reclaimed by nature. The concrete is cracking, the paint faded and the pool was green. But the TV worked, there was (eventually) hot water and the food in the roadside cafeteria was quite acceptable . It could be that because there were only two or three rooms occupied when we stayed that the service was lackadaisical - but overall the place is clean, the gardens make a pleasant break after hours tavelling on NH8 - and the prices are reasonable - ask for a room at the back facing away from the Highway. Hint. If you have a driver be careful that he does not confuse Shakunt Resort with Shakti Resort which is in the center of Behror - Shakunt is 45 minutes West of Behror - not far from the Alwar turn off on the left side if coming from Delhi - your landmark if coming from Jaipur is the VODAPHONE brick kiln chimney shortly before the Shakunt Resort, since the resort is not really visible from the Eastbound carriageway.

Stayed here for a few weeks and although the accommodation is very basic, its a very friendly and welcoming resort. Waiters are very friendly as are most staff. Quite a few tourist buses stop here when travelling.
