Rohet Garh, Rohet
With a great sense of pride and pleasure I introduce Rohet Garh – our ancestral home since 1622 AD. Bestowed upon the first amongst our kin Thakur Dalpat Singh I for his exemplary courage and bravery in numerous military campaigns under the banner of the Rathores, Rohet became one of the most important Jagirs (fiefdoms) of the state of Marwar.
Generations of noblemen have graced and cherished this home that over time has come to be revered. It has been a silent witness to the progress of our family for four centuries. It has stood by us steadfast through the highs and the lows; it has protected us and given us shelter. Above all it has given us our identity. In January 1990 we opened its gates to receive the discerning traveler. To share with him our heritage, and give him a glimpse of our land with its brilliant colours, where culture and tradition are deep-rooted and vibrant & its people - so deeply civilized! Today Rohet Garh is a leading Heritage Hotel, where the experience goes far beyond the high walls of the Garh (Fort). It is home first and Hotel after… And you - our honoured guests


Karohi Haveli Udaipur
The Karohi haveli was built in 1820 A.D. as  residence of Karohi noble family and recently converted into a heritage hotel to offer royal hospitality and the experience of the Haveli lifestyle. It is run by the Karohi family and benefits both from an excellent location on Lake Pichola and friendly service. 
The specialty of the Haveli is its traditional Rajasthani architecture and the huge area covered by it. It has lush green lawns which are huge and beautiful and offers a breathtaking view of the surroundings. Each room has a wonderful view of the lake and a terrace with beautiful panoramic views of the City Palace, Lake Pichola, Havelies, Temples the Old City and also Lake Swaroop Sagar.

It fronts onto Lake Pichola near the Hanuman Ghat and is directly opposite the magnificent shoreline of City Palace, Lal Ghat and the old city. It is comfortable, clean and elegant. It is conveniently located for shopping and restaurants as well as internet access shops etc, yet is tucked away around a corner which gives a feeling of tranquility! Although the rooms have been modernized they still keep traditional features that characterize Rajasthan.

Fateh Garh, perched on a hill forgotten within the very heart of Udaipur is yet blissfully away from the familiar drone that one travels to make distance from; what today many would call serendipity of sorts! Delivered from the Urdu word from victory 'Fateh', and 'Garh' or fortress in Sanskrit, Fateh Garh is really an invitation to penetrate our gross exterior selves and explore the much hiding recesses of our interior being, considered 'true victory' in Eastern thought.
This interplay of the male and female aspects is found more obviously in the spaces referred to as the Mardana Mahal, bold and exhibitionist - traditionally, the palace of the gentry; and the Zanana Mahal, intimate and delicate - traditionally, the palace of ladies. On advancing to the wondrous inverted palace, which is really a mirror images of the Mardana & Zanana Mahal, we realize a harmonious intermingling of the yin and yang energies that gives the interplay a whole new dimension



Devi Garh just outside Udaipur in Rajasthan is a spectacular palace hotel and is one of India Beat's favorite places to stay. Until the 15th of October they are offering a special deal for India Beat guests: pay for 2 nights stay for 3.

Our room at the top of the palace had a stunning marble 4 poster bed and unbelivable views over the lush green valley.

On the way back to Devi Garh we stopped at the incredible temples at Eklingji for the evening service, an experience not to be missed.


Hotel Diggi Palace, Jaipur, is a heritage property situated in the Pink city of Jaipur, also the gateway to the historic north-western frontier province popularly know as Rajasthan. Since this was the province which was the only entry to the rest of the sub-continent, all the invaders and plunderers had to pass through the same, hence, the historic background with fortified battlements and lots of chivalry and history.
Like in other civilizations, this north-western frontier state has had its share of fragmentation and had lots of small kingdoms and smaller units known as "Thikanas". The administration was conducted by the head known as "Thakur Saheb". To ensure the smooth running of his "Thikana", the Thakur came to Jaipur to pay his allegiance and to interact with the Maharaja on various subjects such as finance, defense, budget, taxes etc.The Town Houses came into existence during or about the time Jaipur was built i.e.

1727 AD and one such dwelling of The Thakur of Diggi is Hotel Diggi Palace. "Diggi House" now called Hotel Diggi Palace has been the city seat of the Thakurs of the Diggi Thikana. Ancient principality of Diggi is located 75 Kms. from Jaipur towards the south-westerly direction. Originally a bagh (Garden Retreat situated just outside the walled city of Jaipur), for the family, the house and its surrounding environs, with the lush green gardens were used for holding the darbar whenever the thakur was here to preside over the administration of "Diggi Thikana". The main building and its surrounding bagh as well as the fountain was constructed by Thakur Sahib Pratap Singh Ji of Diggi.
Shahpura Bagh ,Jaipur

India Beat loves the new pool at Shahpura Bagh, we visited this gorgeous heritage hotel last year and had a fantastic time with Sat, one of the brothers who owns the place. He showed us round the family farm and took us up to their ancestral fort for drinks as the sunset. The traditional rajasthani food, served in the palace and eaten with the family was always delicious. The hotel is set in lovely gardens and a huge lake, one of hundreds in the area, was swarming with birdlife. Over 180 species are know to live around Shahpura Bagh, many of them migrating from the north for the winter months from November to March. The huge gardens were missing just one thing, a swimming pool, and now it's finished. The infinity pool has lots of space to lounge in the sun as well as some pretty pavilions to seek shade under when you want to have lunch. The hotel is ideally situated between Jaipur and Udaipur and is the perfect place to spend a couple of days in rural rajasthan

Ramathra Fort ,

Ramathra Fort is a heritage hotel set deep in rural Rajasthan, it's one of our favorite places in India and is run by Ravi Rajpal and his wife Geetanjali. Ramathra remains completely untouched by the outside world and the surrounding countryside is thick, wild forest. Originally set up as a tented camp inside the boundary wall of the 17th Century fort, a section of the main palace has now been renovated as extra guest rooms. We loved Ramathura Fort because of the amazing walks through the countryside, visiting temples and villages along the way. Ravi has a brilliant knowledge of the area, it's people and it's abundant wildlife. One day he led us through the forest to a gorge with a wonderful temple built into the cliffs, we followed the river at the bottom downstream to a spectacular thundering waterfall. Back at Ramathra Fort we had drinks by the open fires followed by a hearty Rajput dinner of lall mass, a kind of lamb curry, which was great fun and absolutely delicious. We can't wait to return to see the new rooms shown in the picture below.

Udai Bilas , Dungapur

The Place: Dungapur, 2 hours drive south of Udaipur in Rajasthan What's it like: A superbly quirky and occasionally kitch palace beside a lake in a very remote part of Rajasthan. Rooms have bags of character, the service is impressively old school, as is the tasty indian food. What we love: The birds and other wildlife on the lake, the magnificent frescos in the old palace nearby, the charming staff, the wonderful dinning room and the feeling that this is still a home and not a hotel.

Rawla Jojawar, Jodhpur

We humbly welcome you to our home; Rawla Jojawar is created after lovingly renovating the old fort which has always been home to a stunningly beautiful boutique hotel. Here generations of our family have lived since 1780, where the patriarch Thakur or Chief in their position as garrison commanders of this border town of Marwar with Mewar - both ancient kingdoms and often bitter enemies, once guarded the volatile border and collected custom dues on the trade. We Nagendra and Amit Vikram brothers and descendants of the illustrious Thakur Shyam Singh ji of Sonegra Chouhan clan who in the year 1808 had lead the Chouhan Contingent of the Jodhpur forces to successfully repeal an attack on the Meharangarh fort during the war with the combined forces of Jaipur and Bikaner. After attaining martyrdom right at the gates of the great fort in the battle, Maharaja of Jodhpur, Man Singh ji doubled the land grant of Jojawar fief as a gallantry award, to the brave leader's sons. Titles and other benefits followed and the family and the small economy of the then village Jojawar boomed, making it a sizable town of the County. His memorial was built where he feel in battle right outside the Fort and can still be visited today. Our Rawla - literally meaning the abode of the local chieftain, is a small fort in the middle of the very scenic town of Jojawar . We opened as a hotel in the year 2001which our family owns and operates. It's our labour of love, and lots of different people besides our family have come together to make Jojawar a destination and not merely a place to stay. Inspired by our father Rao sahib Maharaj Singh ji our endeavor is to connect more and more people and communities living in the country around Jojawar, in isolated homesteads and hamlets and are living a dying lifestyle and practicing old professions like sheep and camel herding, but with a culture so varied and colourful that it would have been a pity to see them change. We have been successful to a great degree to encourage them to continue to live on there and carry on their ancient ways by sharing the profits of one of our major attractions - Jeep and Horse rides into the country.
