Hi Guys, we were a couple to stay at this Old yet fascinating property maintained in its own ways. We reached at 10pm at the hotel after long journey from Mt. Abu. Though I am fond of trying off beat places, I was afraid when I reached this small Rajasthan village. To add on, our taxi driver asking me whether...

I stayed here recently with a small group, we had the place to ourselves. This is the place if you want to get away from the ubiqitous flashy marble hotel foyers. Beautifully furnished rooms and suites (all different as far as I could see) with clean modern en-suites. There is a lovely Jain temple next door to the Palace and...

This haveli is supposed to be 450 yrs old and the family is in the process of refurbishing it under the lead of Shakti, the elder son. And he seems to be doing a brilliant job. The best part is that the family lives in the haveli and you must interact with Shakti and his mother, who're just fantastic people....

The castle is huge and beautiful. Rooms are lovely and gives you the feeling of the golden era. Food was good. There is temple of Meera Bai which is more than 300 years old. Bathroom was neat n clean. Village walk is an interesting way to meet the local people and explore very old havelis(small palace) & bawaris(step well).

This place is very good and quite. Would surely prefer to go again As it's an 450 years old castle(heritage property) it has its own feel and experience too. Need to improve a bit on service. Else everything is fine to stay.

Ghanerao Royal Castle was founded in 1606 by Gopal Das Rathore, a brave rajput warrior from the Mertia clan. It’s a small town located strategically at the entrance of one of the few ancient passes in the Aravali range that connects the erstwhile states of Udaipur and Jodhpur the two strongholds of Rajasthan, Mewar and Marwar. The castle is a beautiful classic edifice of marble and red sand stone jharonkas.The courtyards are habituated by dancing peacocks and lined with colourful bougainvillea. No two rooms are like, with quaint sit outs and staircases furnished aesthetically keeping the environment and the sensibility of the area and local traditions. Sumptuous meals are served, prepared using age old traditional recopies of the family, who reside there and retain the old local staff as well to give a feeling of harmony and community. A home away from home- its serenity has attracted many a writers and painters and many happy couples have taken their marriage vows in the traditional way. Its the only village in Rajasthan which boasts of thirty-three step wells and beautiful cenotaphs and by lanes strewn with heritage havelis.
