“Excellent Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

I wasn't sure about this hotel before we arrived as some of the reviews on Tripadvisor were slightly negative. We thought it was excellent.

It is a new build but in a traditional style and very sympathetic to the desert surroundings. Our room was in a courtyard off an open air path through the hotel. It was large, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was fine and the staff were all very polite and gave good service.

The swimming pool was a decent size and very welcome in the heat of the afternoon, it was well attended with towels being provided. I even managed a nice lunch - spicy potato sandwich with chips! A lot nicer than it sounds.

It's satisfying on all aspects..... Rajasthani design in exteriors and interiors, great food options, superb spa and excellent sevices. A bit expensive but the luxuries it offers are worth the costs . The entrance lobby is awesome with a large mural depicting Holi festival and royal waiting lounge.

This hotel doesn't deserve its negative criticism on Tripadvisor. The room was beautiful, the grounds were magnificent and the views from the roof-top bar on the fort and city were simply breathtaking.
Many criticize the service at this hotel. Well we found that the staff bends over backwards in an effort to please. It was probably the best service we had on our 3-week trip to India.' Exceptional' comes to mind.
We highly recommend this hotel.

If you like a hotel that has all the charm of a film set, with staff dressed up as extras in identical costumes of kurta and turban then this may be the place for you; I'm afraid it was all rather too ostentatious and synthetic for my taste.
All this show seemed designed to avert attention away from the otherwise very ordinary bedroom and the very average dinner in a characterless dining room. Breakfast however was a buffet with plenty of choice.

Visited Fort Rajwada with family in January 2011. Lush green gardens, amazing views, wonderful hospitality and beautiful Rajasthani architecture. The rooms were huge, beautiful and very well maintained and the service was prompt and wonderful. The food was exquisite with Indian as well as continental cuisines. Felt wonderful to witness the wonderful royal hospitality in the land of kings.

We stayed for two nights at the hotel on our three week tour of Northern India and it served as a convenient base to visit Jaisalmer. It is beautiful complex and the facilities are of a very high standard, with the central entrance hall being particularly impressive. Our room was large and comfortable with an outlook onto the lawns which surround the buildings and was well equipped. The pool and spa complex is also very good and the staff were helpful in providing loungers etc. We ate from the a la carte menu both evenings of our stay and found the food to be of a good standard and authentic of the region. Our only slight complaint was that the wi fi (chargeable) only operated in the lounge area and could be a bit unreliable. Overall however it was a most enjoyable stay.

The access to the hotel was across a road construction site and the hotel is quite some distance from the town centre, so there was no chance of strolling into town in the evening.
The reception we received was just what you want after a long drive - lovely garlands, cold refreshing drink and hot towels. The pool was beautiful abut too cold to swim in, although some hardy souls did venture in. I had a wonderful massage which helped get rid of the stresses of the journey.
Unfortunately, the hotel is popular with tour parties so at times it could be rather noisy. For example, we were relaxing by the pool when it was suddenly taken over by about 20 Germans who seemed to be having a competition to see who had the loudest voice.
Breakfast was a bit of a scrum, as the tour parties were all checking out at the same time so the food was a bit picked over and needed refreshing. The central aisle in the breakfast room was poorly designed and the food was badly laid out with the juices, toaster, jam etc. all crammed at one end, while over half the counter was taken up with Indian hot foods which no one seemed to be touching.
