We spent a week in this old Fortress that has been refurbished into a Hotel. We had most dinners on the rooftop terrace with candles and an open fire. The varied Indian Cuisine was excellent and the gentle and soft spoken host, Praduman Singh, attended most dinners.
We also attended a brief camel safari to a nearby hillock to enjoy the sunset. It took an hour to reach the hillock where we were welcomed by the chef that was preparing dinner on a portable grill.
A nice experience with excellent food and Indian red and white wine.
You will also find an Arts & Crafts Center near the entrance to the Hotel.
