How to Get There
We booked 3 nights in one of their Heritage Suites (they have 3). All we could establish before was that 2 shared a balcony and one had a private one so we requested that one. Oh wow is all I can say about the room!
It is room 335 and the entrance door is next to the jewellery shop right in the heart of the hotel. The stone steps up are steep and deep, be warned. You walk into a large covered courtyard with table and chairs, a day bed and windows with shutters that look down onto the pool and outside dining area. A glass wall and sliding door lead to a lobby off which is your huge bedroom with the most enormous but very low bed, sofa, huge TV and windows with shutters that look down onto the pool and outside dining area. A 2nd door off the lobby leads to a large long bathroom with enormous walk in shower (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, moisturiser etc all provided). There was also a mini bar and wardrobe with mini safe.
Leading of the bathroom was another area with huge bath with a shuttered window that looked onto your enclosed courtyard and then out again through the window (with shutters) that looked out onto the pool. Yet another room with 2 day beds and another huge TV was at the end.
Just when we thought we had seen the whole room another door was opened off the covered courtyard and we were led up more very steep deep stone steps onto a huge private courtyard on the roof! With sun beds, the most amazing views of the Fort (better than the hotel’s room top bar) . There was also a canopy tent with table and chairs.
Wi fi was great in the room, you get called with a code once you have checked in. The pool was lovely and heated, with chilled water served to you while you are there.
We booked a couples connect massage, oh my word it was amazing, the ladies were fantastic and we cannot recommend it enough.
The food was great, breakfasts were huge.
We asked to have dinner on our roof top one night and was told there was a set up charge of INR 1250 per person which was fine. We presumed it would be the main hotel menu. When we went up, it was lovely with candles and petals everywhere and our waiter, Prahalad, was amazing and could not do enough for us. We were advised that it was a set menu, which was a surprise but fine. Not as much as a surprise though when we saw the bill! It was a silly amount of money for 3 courses of good food but not to that cost level.
I emailed the hotel before we left saying that we were disappointed we were not advised of the price or given a choice of menu.
2 days later after we left we got a response “would like to inform you that the fee which was mentioned to you INR 6500++ per person includes the dinner with private setup and it is the same amount ( 6500 + taxes x 02 guests = 13,000 plus taxes )which was charged and there is no additional charges were added for diner”. I replied that given that he was not part of that conversation he could not say what was said to both my husband and myself. And 3 days later have not had a reply.
This really put a complete dampener on what was otherwise a lovely stay. The management rather than admitting we had been miss communicated to chose to tell us we were wrong. Such a shame as all it needed was an apology and an offer of some kind of refund (they said if we were visiting Udaipur they would welcome us to stay and offered us Hi Tea (we are going but staying at the Taj). The management have let down their outstanding team. This is the reason alone for the average rating, otherwise it would have been excellent.
Hidden away near the busy market scene in Jodhpur, this hotel is a true gem. Next to the Imperial Hotel in New Delhi, this was my favorite place to stay on an almost 3-week photography tour of India. The rooftop bar offers a great location to view the Fort, which is illuminated at night. The rooms are comfortable but note that you may be subjected to really loud noises from nearby party or event sites - beyond the hotel's control, and they do provide earplugs, but if you're sensitive to noise, beware.
Instead of bottled water (common in many Indian hotels), the hotel processes its own water and provides it in glass stoppered containers as part of its mission to eliminate plastics from the property. (Yes, the water is safe to drink!) The staff is well trained and if you eat in the dining room two nights in a row, don't be surprised if the waiter remembers which wine you ordered the previous evening! Five stars, definitely.
We splurged on the last hotel of our India trip, so it was a nice way of ending it. The other cities we were mostly in budget or slightly above budget hotels. Let's just say I really didn't want to leave after entering this hotel.
The curb appeal is amazing. There are a few shops owned by the hotel just outside the gates. It is pricier, but at least you feel safe venturing alone here. With a few minutes walk, you can access the local market where they sell anything from used items, to handicrafts, to food. It is probably good to have a guide to orient you around the area.
The hotel has tuk tuk's to take you places, but we never used them. not sure what the cost is to use them either. Internet is fast and reliable. It does not limit you in terms of the number of devices you use, which is good. They will cut off your internet access as soon as you check out which kind of sucks. I wish there was some free wifi in the lounge as we were waiting for our driver to pick us up.
Food is very good here, but pricey. Food portions are slightly on the small side. We found it a little chilly in the evenings, so even though there are amazing views of the fort from the outside, you might want to eat indoors at night and in the morning. Service is excellent.
There is free cable TV. There is evening turndown service if you want it. The place does have a loud prayers from the mosque many times a day. Hence why they give you ear plugs upon arrival.
The people at the front desk are not equipped in mailing letters/postcards. They didn't know what to charge and how to do it. found that interesting. My mom still hasn't gotten her letter from RAAS yet. It's probably lost in the mail. oh well. what can you do.
FYI no plastic bottles are allowed on the property. They try to be environmentally friendly. We did not get sick from drinking from the sink water.
The people make this wonderful property even more super.the restaurant food, and service 5 stars. Even GM Mr Banerjee stoped us on a walk about to inquire to our satisfaction with the hotel and service. Everyone cares and it shows. Beautiful rooms and great views, fast internet. Would be nice for more English international news stations on the TV
This is truly a very special hotel that places an emphasis on design and service. The view of the Fort is spectacular. You can have a drink on their roof top patio bar with a stunning view. We stayed three night and did not feel the need to venture off the property for food. The service was also second to none Pralad, Arshad and the whole team were incredibly attentive.
bring ear plugs though its right next to a mosque that kicks off in the morning
