Rohet Garh is a lovely place to stay when visiting Jodhpur. It provides an authentic experience staying in a small hotel which is still a noblemans home. Very comfortable suite with lovely bed. Excellent a la carte dining in the garden which is beautifully lit at night. Musical entertainment provided. Jodhpur is 45 minutes away by car. No WiFi in the bedrooms and the water pressure in the shower is meagre at best. However, this is a tranquil, beautiful property which I would recommend unequivocally.
It was an amazing experience for us as we went to celebrate New Year's eve and stayed for 2 nights. We had a pool facing view and the room was very clean. The staff is extremely well groomed with world class hospitality. A never say "No" attitude of every staff member is what added to our wonderful experience of the property.
The fort has a well planned layout with lush green garden to relax and bask in the sun....The pool is small and the water was cold so my son couldnt make the most of it. The Staff at the restaurant and housekeeping were extremely proactive and served everyone with a warm smile.
The food menu was limited but was good to taste. My son loved the spaghetti bolognese and my husband being a hard core non veg relished the gattas more than the laal maas.The village safari was fun and we really enjoyed the vhsit to the Bishnoi family residence where we were welcomed with hot tea, the potters house and also the Opium ceremony at the Brahmin family's home.
The 2 pets at thd resort Cocoa & Tuku kept us entertained.
The GM too was very pleasant and made a personal visit at every table to ensure all was well.
Everything was great except that we felt that the Gala dinner buffet was overpriced at 2500 pp as it has a very basic spread with no beverages included.
The overall price of stay could have included one meal to make it more justified and there should have been more activities included to entertain inhouse guests as there is nothing much to do.
Only 40Km away from Jodhpur, on the route from Udaipur, this is a great place to stop off for a few nights if you want to have some down time to relax in this very comfortable, and efficiently run hotel, part of which is also the home of the owner, Mr. Singh. We had only booked a one-night stay but rapidly came to regret that we were not staying for several more days. Evening meals out on the lawn of the beautifully tended garden, with entertainment provided by local musicians, set the scene for a pampered evening with both the general manager and owner coming around for conversation and looking to ensure your stay went smoothly in a completely relaxed manner. The menu was excellent with probably the best desserts that we had anywhere in India.
A real highlight was the morning jeep excursion, organized to take guests to see some of the local wildlife and then to visit a couple of local villages. The jeep driver acted as guide and provided excellent historical and cultural information as we visited a lovely, friendly Bishnoi family, followed by a Brahmin village for a demonstration of the old opium ceremony (but using tea rather than the now banned opium!). As we were only at the hotel for one night, and this excursion set off at 8.00am for 2-2.5 hours we were slightly worried that we would not have time for breakfast, or to pack and clear our room, by the stated check-out time. However, we were assured that there was no need to worry we had breakfast before going off in the jeep, and when we returned there was no problem in continuing to use our room until we were ready to leave. As we were only heading on to Jodhpur that day, we were in no hurry and so we had time to see the owners stable of Mewar horses and to sit a while in the bar to have tea and biscuits before finally, and somewhat reluctantly, departing.
Note: it is possible to take these beautiful horses out if you are a rider.
Blisteringly hot day in March 2017, and we needed the break, a cold beer, AC, and some sustenance. Very pleasant it was too - Rogan Josh, Murg Tikka and plain rice from our Receipt.
Charming and shady setting with nice garden.
Not far from Jodhpur, this fort is a superb place to stay for a relaxing break in an historic setting. We spent 2 nights here in 2 of the best rooms we experienced in India, with 4 poster beds and large sitting area.
The food on the first night was so over salted we could barely eat it, but the next night it was the opposite, with a delicious buffet on offer. The chef had changed so make sure you get the good one and check the salt level!
We took the village tour which gave an insight into the ways people still live away from the cities. Worth doing if staying here, but not worth a detour.
There is a pool but in winter it was very cold. There was music in the evening from an authentic band, and a magician, both entertaining.
