When our trip planner suggested spending several days at the Amanbagh resort in the Arravalli Hills in the middle of our 17 days in India, we were surprised since we had never heard nor read about it but since she was the expert, we went with the suggestion. Thankfully, we listened to her. This resort was amazing, from the pool suite we were upgraded to where monkeys frolicked in the garden, to the delicious meals, the outstanding services and the overall friendliness and desire to please of the staff, nothing was lacking. Since you are in the middle of nowhere, you will be eating all meals at the resort and the choices were excellent as was the preparation. We ate our lunches outside overlooking the pool but it was chilly so we ate breakfast and dinner inside in a beautifully decorated room. We were supposed to have one dinner at a remote outdoor location but chose instead to have it outdoors on a rooftop cupola, heated by portable fire pits, overlooking the entire resort. It was so romantic that we cannot envision this being an alternative not the plan. We took a jeep ride with a guide to a deserted city which was as interesting as Ostia Antica near Rome and another through the nearby town where the locals were more friendly than one could imagine. When we were taking pictures of the children walking home from school, older women wanted to see their pictures and gave us huge smiles. The guide told us that if we sent back copies, the hotel would distribute it to the locals. We had an hour lesson on meditation as well as a great message. Nothing was too much to ask for and when we inquired about an item sold in the shop, they had it opened early on the day we departed.
This was a perfect interlude between the hectic pace of New Delhi and Agra and the forthcoming long drive to Jaipur and onto Udaipur.
