Totally Excellent Digs.
This hotel rocks - this hotel is comfortable with period style suites that offer a homely atmosphere. Antiques from various periods and photographs from the family archives create an ambiance that suggests a private home rather than a hotel room. These suites have luxurious marble bathrooms. And Raj Style furniture. The Garden outside is Beautiful. And the Pool absolutely rocks. Its Large, clean and cool. With deck chairs, a beautiful garden full of Bougainvillea and a Victorian style Pool house that sells Hig Tea. So cool.
I have my own way to insure constant sanity. I usually slum it when I do hotels. Depending where we are and location. I like to spend less than $10 a night. But once or twice a week, I'll spend up to $80 on a nice place. For a treat. This Hotel is the place to do it. Oh the owner collects vintage cars. he has convertble Chevvy and an old Aston Martin. Facilities include: Travel Desk, Barber shop, Courier service, Front Desk, Free Newspaper, Parking, Bar, Banquet, Restaurant, Safe Deposit Box, Conference Facilities, Luggage Storage, Swimming Pool, Barbeque, Tennis Court, Health Club, Village Jeep Safari, Doctor on Call, Laundry, Travel Desk Service, Dry Cleaning, Post, Baby Sitting, Currency Exchange, Newsstand, Wake up Service, Collection of Vintage Cars available on hire

Be sure to try their outdoor buffet. Quite excellent and reasonably priced. It is a very special place to eat and it's worth of it's price (600 p/p), including good service and dance and music show. It opens 19 o'clock and sometimes reservation should be necessary. The food "On the Rocks" restaurant is absolutely another quality, and the serving ( for example, you get everything what you ordered, in on time)! The best tomato soep and naan.

not sure to go to Jodhpur?
I am planning a very short visit to rajasthan, traveling from judaipur to udaipur. First time in India, going for 10 days. I paln to end my stay in udaipur. I am traveling from Pushkar to Udaipur.
My dillema is, Will it be worth it to go out of my way and stay a night at jodhpur, and then just stay a night in udaipur, or should I just skip jodhpur and spend 2 nights in udaipur.
How difficult is it to travel between each city. I am interested in visitng jodhpur, but I am concerned that I will miss out one of my 10 days spending 6 hours on the road.
RE: not sure to go to Jodhpur?
You could take the plane. I think there are regular flights. The journey by road can be boring, but the landscape is stunning as you pass through a mountain range. There is more to see in Jodhpur than Udaipur, although the latter tends to get more visitors. I have just returned from a tour of Rajhastan. Be aware of a trend taking place whereby hotel staf open 'safe' deposit boxes and steal money from tourists. This happened to me at the Ajit Bhawan, a heritage hotel in Jodhpur.
RE: RE: not sure to go to Jodhpur?
Having been to both cites...I'd spend more time in Udaipur!
RE: not sure to go to Jodhpur?
I have been udaipuri I used to study there for three year. Udaipuri is nice city and you can see alot of things , however some of my friend told me that if jodhpur is nice place too and it has alot of things to see.
