The hotel has rooms in a building but also small cabins outside. We did choose the cabin and it was very spacious, nice decorated. A lot of space and the bathroom had bath and separated shower. Very nice environment with a big garden and a small lake down the stairs with a lot of birds. Nice good swimming pool and... More

We arrived to a warm welcome with a great ceremony reception. It was a fabulous experience. The service was great, and we were upgraded to a deluxe mud hut as the resort wasn't very busy. The A/C room was really nice, different and very comfortable at the same time as spacious (actually big), circular reception room with empty mini bar... More

I recently visited the property along with my family... It was fabulous experience. Worth staying here as really well made Rajashthani cottages, with very good, kind staff and service. Due to an medical emergency we had to leave a day prior and I was overwhelmed with the resorts kind gesture of not charging us for the last night. Must visit... More

Our tour took in a 2 night stay here. The resort is about 1km out of the centre of Mandawa. It's in a great setting with well tended grounds and a swimming pool. Our room was something I'd never experienced before. The decor was very individual, like a kind of mud hut, broken up by lovely white painted designs and... More

I was upgraded to a bungalow which was a treat to stay in - spacious, well appointed with bath and shower. The staff were very attentive and helpful and the food was good. I took a camel ride which was a little disappointing - just a trundle around a few houses and scrub land, but a pleasant enough way to... More

Having arrived at this resort from Delhi we breathed a big sigh of relief! Based in the countryside with stunning views, this hotel provided us with accommodation for our family of four (two teenage children) in two, large and spacious adjoining 'huts'.
