If you fancy getting away from the main tourist areas, go to Kumbhalgarh and to Aodhi. As soon as you venture off the beaten track, you will discover some more authentic scenes of Indian and Rajasthani life. So don't make the mistake and expect the same level of comfort in these areas. (HOT) Water is scarce and difficult to master, monkeys and other animals or insects are a constant nuisance and the finishing of the bathrooms are not immaculate as in 5* hotels in Jaipur.
Having put these things in context, I find the Aodi simply magnificent for its setting, for the architecture of the property and the awesome pool area in the center.
The staff went out of their way to accomodate our excentric bedding wishes (2 friends and a child) and served us breakfast beside the pool, even though it was not catered for it properly speaking. We had dinner at Aodhi's as well, but I was not felling well (not due to the hotels fault) and I honestly cannot comment on the quality of the food.
The rooms are not the biggest and since they're built into the rock, they're fairly dark, but again, that's part of the feature.
