This former hunting lodge had all the elements to make it a classic jungle retreat. But alas, some of the features that made it a delight for easy-going tourist looking for solitude close enough to the marvellous city of Jaipur are no longer there.
The lake which not very long ago (Asiad games 1982) hosted the rowing compeition has just disappeared taking away with it the birds that flocked here and the water sports activities leaving you with very little to do.
The rooms are great, the service impeccable and the food not so bad (though a tad lower in terms of spread and quality than you would expect from the Taj Group), but unless you have a group of your own and can create your own group activities there is pretty little you can do here.
Recommended only if you are the kind that can spend days togetherr reading books, lazing in the pool or watching a few birds that can still be seen.
