The hotel is just off the Agra Jaipur highway , near Dausa. A place to sit, relax and enjoy time with your loved ones. Has a well maintained swimming pool, indoor & outdoor sports facilities like TT, Carrom, Cricket etc. The food is good, not great. The buffet spread is decent. The rooms are big and comfy with decent views.... More

Lovey hotel with luxurious grounds, having organic farming, cows, orchards, a small temple. All these small things make it really unique. The lobby, dining hall, shop etc are all huge. The Manager is extremely courteous and wonderful to chat up with. We were however a little disappointed with the quality of the rooms, the rooms did not however match up... More

Of course, my friend and myself had no intention of staying there, but were just curious about... More

The Umaid Lake Palace is on the road between Agra and Pushkar, and could therefore be a good place to break the journey. It has a lot of charm when arriving.

Indian bus tours only. What a dreary Soviet style depressing guest house. There is no lake, not much happening in the "organic" garden. The food was average. Drive on to either Jaipur or Agra, the short detour to the Chand Baori in Abhaneri does not mean that you need to spend a night in this place, as we thought we... More
