“Like living in a fantasy!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Fantastic stay -- the grounds were immaculate and the rooms 'princely.' We heard the whoop of monkeys and the haunting call of peacocks before rising in the morning. The owners, their family and all who worked there were all so gracious and kind -- made us feel very comfortable. They fed us extremely well and explained all of the different Indian dishes -- a foodie's delight!

The only detractor -- there were several problems with the electric power and ants and lizards liked to visit us in our room on a regular basis -- but that's easy to overlook when you're staying in a castle in India -- all part of the adventure!!! I definitely recommend at least one stay in this magical resort.

The places oozes charm! Nestled in a hill, this property has a very lived-in feel to it, which to me was a great part of its charm; so I was rather surprised to learn that the owners had recently conducted extensive renovations to it. To their credit, the dated look & feel of the place has been preserved with great care. The aristocratic owners are courteous in the extreme, so do not forget to pester them for their family recipe of laal-maas, which is to kill for! A trek to the hilltop is also recommended to witness a spectacular sunset.

A perfect place, away from hustle and bustle. A beautiful building and gardens; a gracious host; great service; and healthy, delicious food. Monkeys, peacocks and pigeons among the hollyhocks and bougainvillea. Sounds of temple bells. A microcosm of Rajasthan.
I recommend a stay here.

Wat a place.. what an ambiance. .. I really enjoyed the quite and relaxing mornings. Dont miss the view from the terrace. The castle is nested right next to a green hillock which give it a very unique and grand charactor. The host is very friendly and makes sure that u get a homely feeling every moment of ur stay.

A right place to stay with peace and comfort is castle kalwar. The painted walls of the castle give you the right heritage feelings. You will find your inner peace with its beautifull morning. The lots of peacocks, birds chirping and beautiful sunrise along with a cup of tea on the terrace was a perfect start for my day. I was into nature's lap. The evening was also as beautiful as morning. It was so relaxing while sitting in garden with cool breeze in my hairs.

This was also my great honour when I met Lt. Gen. Mandata Singh, the owner of castle kalwar, and his son Kunwar Randhir Singh. The whole family and the resptive staff makes you feel you are just at home away home.

The food was really so delicious and served on time. I found all the facilties and services beyond my expectations there. Rooms were so big and beautiful along with all the required facilities.

I give all the stars to castle kalwar and wish to visit there once again


Thank you so much......
