A majestic courtyard and a lofty lobby greet guests at this 88-room property in Rajasthan’s second-largest city. All guestrooms are decked out in soothing earth tones with hardwood furnishings, and they feature twice-daily turn-down service and tea- and coffeemaking facilities. Upgrade to a Superior Room for a top-floor view of the hotel garden, or for extra space opt for an Executive Suite, which comes with a separate living room. After a long day of sightseeing, have a dip in the outdoor pool or take a walk around the grounds — the hotel is surrounded by 28 acres. The food options will sate practically any craving: Gad serves both Indian and European fare (burgers or biryani for dinner, apple pie or jamun tart for dessert), while the Dunes bar offers paneer and enchiladas for late night snacks.
In the Area
Nearly every building in Jodhpur’s old city is painted bright blue, which makes for a striking effect, especially seen from above. Take in the sea of buildings from the top of the Menhrangarh Fort, a sprawling 15th-century sandstone fortress built to protect the old city, 400 feet below. Smart travelers will plan their visit for sunset, to see both the bold city skyline and the fort lit by night; museum curators are on hand to offer guided twilight tours of the monument. If you’ve got time, plan a daytrip to Osian (40 miles away). The ancient city is famous for its Hindu and Jain temples — and its sunset camel safaris.
How to Get There
Looks amazing as you pull up but then when you start looking its very tired … flooring in hallways all coming up - rooms tatty - holes in bed line that have been stitched up. Stains on pillows - shower leaks all over floor as holes in mastic ….all and all very very much in need of refurbishment. Pool looks great but tiles broke/missing then only had two umbrellas pool surrounds all broken and very dangerous - big shame as it could be great :-(
top hotel in remote location. expensive food. food quality does not match with similarly priced restaurants. poor connectivity to main city. spacious excellent rooms. transport to and fro from hotel is a major expenditure.
I have stayed here for 2nights with my family and we all enjoyed our stay a lot.
Firstly Superbly architectural designed Hotel.
We had booked two Suites(Royal & Luxury).
We had very nice, comfortable and most memorable stay.
Both the Suite Rooms are well designed and maintained. Very clean and spacious rooms.
Royal(Jaisalmer) Suite(Room no. 105) will give you a direct view of the entire lush green garden.
You will surely get a Royal Feel while staying in this Suite Rooms.
Very warm Rajasthani Service.
I don't remember that I can point out any individual as all the Staff(Front Desk, House Keeping, Security, Restaurant) are always smiling and ready to help & assist you and also they make sure that your stay at The Ummed becomes a memorable stay forever.
Food served at the Hotel is very very very good.
Breakfast spread was excellent.
This property is situated in outer part of the city so you can have a pleasant and peaceful stay here.
I would really recommend this place to all our TA members or followers.
Fantastic Property, had a great time with Family. Green surroundings Fresh Air Fresh and Clean Room. Food was Good. Staff was Excellent. Great Value for money. It was only 2 day travel to Jodhpur. Will stay again at this hotel for longer period to make use of all the activities. Thank you for a great service.
Absolutely loved our stay at THE UMMED . it was very nice, comfortable and totally rejuvenating . The staff was so very courteous and helped immensely in making our stay pleasant . Also, the food , id like to highlight was sumptuous with a wide spread , plently of dishes to choose from .
The Head Chef , Mr. TRILOK SINGH CHAUHAN , personally interacted with the guests to make sure their requests are taken care of , Infact he went out of the way to make my daughter happy as she is a fussy eater . Our requests were more than taken care of promptly and properly . The staff is extremely polite and helpful , very well trained indeed and devoted . Rooms are excellent . Lots and lots of greenary , breathtaking views , quiet and tranquil . We couldnt have asked for a better place to stay at . I completely recommend staying here , a total value for money , we didnt feel like leaving by the end of it , shall visit again for sure !
