This small, enchanting palace and village complex has several intriguing perks, like a garage full of royal vintage cars available for rent. The main lobby is low-slung and filled with atmospheric royalty-related memorabilia–portraits of maharajas, spears, heads of deer, and whatnot. The individually-styled rooms are a funky mix of contemporary designs and traditional Rajasthani fabrics and artifacts—some even have trees growing inside. The prettiest rooms are located within round hut-style thatched cottages with mud-walled verandas that have swings. Attached baths are large with tubs and loads of sparkling granite/marble. The pool has waterfalls and caves and there's a small spa. In peak season nightly outdoor dinners feature live entertainment. Horseback riding, village tours, and camel safaris can be arranged.

Dinner is always open-aired but very nice and offers both buffet and a la carte options. We do not recommend the tented rooms, although comfortable they are filled with constant noise from animals, planes and trains. At our request, the staff quickly changed us from a tent to a room with no problems and no extra fee. WiFi is free in all rooms, however the signal does not reach all rooms. A very beautiful setting, lush grounds and very nice atmosphere.
