  • "Amazing experience"

    Best thing liked - architecture ambience and location. Remarkable place to stay. Very quiet and serene place in a small village. Lovely spacious rooms and gardens. very hospitable staff with good quality food. Beer nice and cold but poor quality wine. Make sure you go for a walk in the village. Very friendly locals who love to have their photo taken.

  • "Piece of paradise"

    Best features - Heritage style, flowers and gardens, location of of civilisation. It was a refreshing peaceful stay out of civilisation, surrounded by beautiful flowers, gardens and magnificent natural view. We enjoyed three nights in this hotel, did a great walk directly from the hotel through the cosy village into the nature and visited Alwar city which is close by and the Sariska NP that is considerably further. Definitely a place to stay longer than one night. The food was very good, dinner and breakfast buffet rich and staff nice and helpful.

  • "A peaceful vacation"

    Best things - 1. Location 2. Food 3. Hospitality. If you want a break from the monotonous city life, RamBihariPalace in alwar is a must visit place. Ideally suited for people traveling from Jaipur/Delhi, This fort is situated amidst the breathtaking aravalis and you can sit back and enjoy the magnificent views. The staff is very courteous and the food served is delicious. All in all a good 2 days break where you can also plan to visit sariksa wildlife sanctuary and siliserh lake. Winter will be a preferred season.

  • "Amazing experience !"

    Camps were awesome , Feel of the legacy , Cultural program at the fort. Hotel is nice, stay is comfortable, its all together a different experience, its surrounded by aravali range. if you are self driven then to locate the hotel is cumbersome, they should put more sign boards and road is very bad. But after you reach there it pays off

  • "Overnight stop on the way back to delhi"

    Renovation and location were stunning

  • "It was so peaceful and away from all the city noise, each room was unique and the entire ambience was fantastic"

    Awesome. Spent one night only and wished we had stayed longer. Will definitely return for another weekend getaway. Only downside to the hotel is the approach. The road are kinda rough and non existent at some parts and not much signage which makes finding the place difficult especially at night.
    Derek W. - India, 27 January 2015.

  • "Far from the crowd"

    Excellent; we also very much enjoyed a hike of several hours, with a guide provided by the hotel, into the mountains on the opposite side of the valley, where there are 5000 year-old rock carvings! Very special trip.
