What we love: the spectacular countryside from the comfort of your bath.
Designed as a battle fort 350 years ago, Ramathra Fort commands awe inspiring views across the countryside and Kalisil Lake. Still owned today by descendants of the founder, this is a homestay like no other. The palace was built with many storeys and wide ramparts and parts of the palace are still being restoredby local craftsmen using traditional methods. There is a choice of 6 rooms – two luxury suites and 4 deluxe rooms and there are also 6 light and airy Rajasthani tents set in a courtyard beneath the rampart walls. The luxury suites have a private terrace giving wonderful countryside views, comfortable sitting areas, a fireplace and an open air bath tub and/or shower and are beautifully decorated with custom made furnishings. The deluxe rooms are slightly smaller and open on to a courtyard, but have all the facilities and comfort of the suites and commanding views. It is possible to have inter-connecting deluxe rooms. The tents are set in a lawned courtyard beneath the ramparts and are a fun alternative to the rooms. All have ensuite shower rooms and seating areas both inside and outside. Delicious regional food is prepared using local fresh and seasonal ingredients. Dining outdoors on a moonlit night is spectacular and sunset cocktails are a must on the rooftop are a must. Massages can be arranged and there is an outdoor jacuzzi set on a turret. Many activites are available including village walks, boating, camel cart rides and cookery lessons.
