I visited the place on a boys only trip with my college friends. We had booked 5 tented accommodations.
Overall the place is very nice but not without a few shortcomings. Let me first go over the good points-
1. Quiet location away from any kind of hustle bustle.
2. Good hospitality by the staff
3. Clean and luxurious accommodation
4. Cost includes optional picnic lunch by the lake
5. Pollution free blue sky (yes that's a luxury nowadays)
Let me now point out the shortcomings
1. Very expensive for the facilities provided, no swimming pool and cold jacuzzi
2. Food is very average, I would have expected an awesome gatte ki sabzi in Rajasthan, but what they served was the worst
3. Breakfast spread was below ordinary, I would normally expect a wider breakfast spread with more live counters at this price point
I have given an average rating mainly because of the food.
What a perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of Rajasthan! Food, service and rooms all the best standard we have experienced. A really magical place, the views are breathtaking and the staff so friendly and helpful. Stay for a few nights if possible to make the most of the activities on offer as well as the opportunity to laze about.
A restored hill fort with amazing views. The courtyard has been grassed and is lined with half a dozen luxury tents, each with its own private bathroom (fully plumbed). Lovely food, friendly & helpful people. Village excursion and lake walk both worth doing, plenty of spectacular birds.
From the moment you arrive at Ramathra you are taken aback, the fort is beautiful and the views are lovely. It is so peaceful and private, we had a valley facing suite room and wow, when the door was opened the view from the sitting area took our breath away, the sitting area was a very good size with a fire that would make it lovely and cozy on colder days/evening we didn't need it though, the four poster bed had doors/windows that opened out onto the balcony area, the bathroom was very large with a big shower, his and hers sinks and a toilet with a view!! From the inside bathroom you walked out onto the balcony to first find an ouside bath & shower with the same beautful valley view and then this led onto the balcony area with lounge chairs. We used the outside shower in the mornings and I don't think I will ever forget showering whilst looking down on the valley with antelopes in the trees just below us and jackal cubs playing...truly lovely experience.The staff here are lovely & the food is good, there are lots of different places to sit & relax both day & night. We used the jacuzzi which again has great views of the valleys & lake and we sunbathed on the lovely day beds up on the fort walls too looking out over the valley & lake. We had two days of just relaxing after the craziness of Delhi & Agra although we did go down the lake at sunset with one of their guides which was lovely. I would recommend stopping here if you want to get away from everything for a couple of days and yes the journey is a bit bumpy and hilly but it's worth the drive.
We stayed at Ramathra over the weekend, and it was a pleasant stay! The drive is bumpy and is through the village with narrow roads, and a steep climb, and once you enter, you get that royal palace vibes right from the entrance door.
The room was big with a huge glass window overlooking the forest and a partial view of the dam.
We reached there almost time for lunch, and hot home style food was served, rare deal in hotels! Then we walked around tge fort boundary, while one of the staff told us about the fort, and walked down to see the lake nearby, and also a small farm where they grow most of their vegetables. Came back and tea, coffee and cookies were waiting for us. Dinner was also awesome with limited but perfect items. Also the halwa was just yumm!
Right infront of the fort is a shiva temple, a few stairs to climb and right on top, a must visit!
A nice royal but homely stay, away from the hustle bustle in the lap of nature.
