We were looking for a weekend break close to delhi..and here we landed.Obviously, it was a planned trip.We were 3 people.Me & my parents.We started on Saturday, in d morning at 5.30am.Took a break for tea also fr half hour on our way.Managed to reach Amer fort by 11am.Lebua Lodge is v.close by,from Amer fort but due to lack of sign boards,we asked the local people.Only after calling the hotel, we managed our way to the Lodge.Well,its a bad 2 kms drive from Amer market.We were scared if we are going to d right place as it was all jungle and 'kachi' road.No civilians seen for that path.Well, finally when we reached the main enterance, we were welcomed with 'Aam papar & churan'..nice :-).Drove into the Hotel..and it was just beautiful.Reception with geomatrically designed tents all around,with amazing set up to sit on d sofas and chairs,with a very positive aroma around which u cud smell just when u enter the reception.After the check-in, we walked to our room,so to say our 'luxury tent' which did not look like one,as it had a very well built & neat & clean bathroom & not to missed"a low leveled tub".Well, dis was really unique..and there was a window which could also be opened.But, people can not see you from out side as it has a small build-up area.The interiors of the Tents and the bathroom, were just outstanding.Before each tent,there is a small sitting area with a huge sofa,maintaing the charm that you won't forget,that you are in Pink City.All the tents are away from each other,maintain the privacy.All you could see was greenry around you.Infact,once you step out of the room & you are on grass.You could hear the chirping of the birds,see the Aravali Hills.It worth a drive as this suprise awaits you.The weather was also nice and really windly,although sunny but managable.Our room was very close to the swimming pool & the restaurant.We went for a swim.The best was the private dining area,they have made within the pool area.There is a table&a chair placed right within the pool.So,you are at the same level of water,at the same time,water is not touching you.After some time we went to the market which is around 7-8 kms away.Came back late by 10pm.The drive back to the Hotel was really scary as it was pitch dark & we a family of just 3 people alone in 1 car in the jungle.Had it been 3-4 cars together,it would have been fine from the safety point of view.No street lights in that 2kms stretch and no people around.Thankfully,we reached the hotel safe & sound.We were little hungry.Finally went to the restaurant.Food-was good & tasty.At night,the Lodge was all lit with little lamps just outside each Luxury tent.Also,each tent is little away from one another,so the light was also little scanty.It looked nice at night also.Next morning, there was a lavish breakfast.A good variety of Indian,rajasthani & continental.Food again was very good.We really enjoyed our stay.Started back on Sunday noon.Feedback-They should work on their services as there is a scope of improvement here.Some how,I felt lack of cordination is there amongst the staff.We were already on a package for 3 people in one room.They did not refer to the bookings and were asking for extra charges.Anyway,for parents,who look for a saturday-sunday break can surely come here & even their small kids will enjoy the pool.They also have camel rides which somehow,we didnot experience as we were away from the hotel during the evening. All in all, an excellent place to be.We carry some amazing memories of Lebua Lodge & would surely visit here again.Surely recommend this place..
