Covid 19 has changed the way people travel for business or leisure. Instead of hotels, home stays are becoming the preferred choice of accommodation. That is because their small size ensures safety, hygiene and maintenance. Here you marry the certainty of a 5 star hotel with the warmth and privacy of a home stay. Hence we zeroed in on a 5 bedroom resort, tucked amidst the Aravalli Ranges at the edge of the Ranthambore National Park, known as Fateh’s Retreat. The 5 rooms give it an air of exclusivity, comfort with conveniences as also a cosy, homely feel. If you occupy any of the 4 rooms on the top floor, then you wake up to undisturbed beauty of the hills and forest and of calm, as you step out on your balcony. The infinity plunge pool beckons as it borders the end of the property , sometimes with dancing peacocks in attendance. Modern amenities provided for in the bathrooms. And the pressure from the water taps is awesome. Sensibly, no TV at all. As no electric kettles have been provided for, the staff wakes you up happily at whatever time you so desire with a hot beverage of your choice accompanied by cookies. Primarily a vegetarian home stay, dishing out tasty vegetarian meals, the owner, Usha Rathore, is not averse to non-vegetarian food being cooked in the kitchen. The dining room, Jogi Mahal, doubles up as a cosy place in the winter months as a wood, smokeless fire, keeps the place warm as you sit on the comfortable chairs arranged around it. Fateh’s Retreat does not have a liquor licence. The lawns were used by us for al fresco dining. Breakfast and dinners were mostly eaten outdoors. Memorable evenings were spent by the pool side with burning fires while we barbecued, ate, drank and danced. The hot topic of conversation was always the exchange of notes of our wildlife sightings on our safaris inside the national park. Since we were celebrating a special occasion, the staff, one night, organized a well-planned dinner at a level below the pool and adjoining the forest. Fires had been lit to keep the cold at bay. But alas, it also kept any wild animals nearby, if at all, out of sight and sound as well. The amla (Indian gooseberry) orchard, which at this time was laden with fruits at plucking distance, is your natural supplier of vitamin C. Usha suggested a boat safari down the Chambal river in her private motor boat to see the ever endangered ghariyals. More so, than even the tigers. We had to undertake an hour’s drive to reach Pali, 38 km’s away. The one hour ride was well worth it as we got to see a number of the cold blooded creatures basking on the banks, in the warm sunshine. The long snout female ghariyals get no competition from the short, round, snout of the males, in terms of size. Lunch had been organized for us as well, which was a thoughtful thing to do. The boat accommodates 4 to 6 and the cost varies accordingly. If you are more than the mentioned number, then you wait for an hour for your turn. The staff is courteous and helpful. Nidan, the leader of the pack, makes sure all your wishes are fulfilled and demands met with. Usha is always around to enquire about one’s welfare, to offer suggestions and to give helpful advice. There is free wi-fi and parking too.

We had a fabulous all round experience at staying at Fatah’s Retreat. This family run business has it all; an inspirational past, contemporary decor and amazing hospitality. The owner, Usha Rathore, was lovely and made sure we wanted for nothing. Dilip, our host, was really attentive, as were the other employees. We took a guided tour of Rathambore Fort with Nidhan, the resort driver, which we would highly recommend. If we were ever to come back to India this is the one place we’d come back to. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Lee & Páraic

We spent three nights at Fateh's Retreat. We enjoyed the beautiful grounds and modern amenities in our room, especially the vaulted ceiling and great water pressure in the shower! We saw peacocks and monkeys on the grounds as well. Usha Rathore, our hostess, was beyond helpful. She had us privately driven to her other resort, Khem Villas, every night for a buffet dinner. We enjoyed sitting around the campfire there chatting with staff and guests. We also enjoyed the gift shop and wonderful service therein. In addition to multiple tiger safaris, we took advantage of Usha's own private boat for a river cruise to see gharial crocodiles! Our wonderful driver throughout our stay was Nidhan. He drove us from Sawai Madhopur to Jaipur as well. Usha's hospitality was exceptional, and all of the staff were very well trained. We highly recommend a visit!

In one word, perfection! My partner and I stayed 3 nights at Fateh's Retreat and this review comes at the end of our 3 weeks long trip to India. By far the best accommodation and service we had throughout the whole journey. Perfect base for the safaris. The room and bathroom are very comfortable and quiet. Excellent shower pressure and great courtesy set. Perfect cleaning. The grounds are immaculate and very well kept. The swimming pool is gorgeous, very clean and it boasts an incredible view over the wild. Breakfast was perfect: a choice of egg, plenty of fresh fruit, yogurt from their local cows, homemade granola, bread, parantha, coffee or tea. Breakfast tables are scattered around the pool and I can't think of a better location to enjoy a leisurely breakfast after a morning safari. Afternoon tea with biscuits was a great touch! We also had dinner one night and food was excellent: freshly prepared using the ingredients from their vegetable patch. Service was top notch. Rohit (usually working at their sister property Kemp Villas) was extremely attentive and super knowledgeable about the area. The owner and the whole staff was by far the best we found throughout our journey in India. Kind, smiley and very helpful. Can't recommend this place enough and as a owner of a very similar property I can see all the work and the love they put into it. Well done!
