It’s the best location in the whole of the Ranthambore Forest as it is situated within the forest. Surrounded on all sides by trees, it is situated on a small hill. It’s a heritage property, which used to be the hunting pavilion for the Maharaja of Jaipur. However, the accommodation is basic with A/C provided in some rooms. We stayed in the adjacent rooms 201 and 202 on the 2nd floor. In the middle there is a common room which is a great place for chatting sessions. There is also a large open terrace on each floor, where there is provision for sitting with a nice views. It’s a nice place to watch the sunset. There is a small souvenir shop in the property.
Room: attached bathroom and a small living room (although not of much use). Beds and sheets were clean and changed daily. A/C works and is comfortable. Price for the A/C suite is Rs5000. Which is a bargain is the area and fair value for money.
Food: is a mix of traditional and Indian with continental choice. Break fast was Indian ( chhole bhaturey, pulao, upma) along with bread toast, omlette. Lunch and dinner is mostly traditional Indian food mostly vegetarian and one non veg dish (which was chicken).
Staff: are very cordial and helpful. Hot water is available all the times. Although there is no tea and coffee making facility in the room, these can be ordered nearly anytime through the staff.
Sight seeing: advisable to book the jungle safari in advance. Try to book in the zone 2,3, or4 as the locals say these are the areas mostly frequented by the tigers. Price for each person is Rs570 in the open top truck.
