The stunning home ground of the valorous Rajput kings and warrior clans- the ancient kingdom of Rajputana- now India’s richly endowed state of Rajasthan, continues to allure visitors with its promise of a kaleidoscope of holiday experiences. Stay in some of the most amazing royal tents and aristocratic mansions that stand testimony to its wonderful history and lineage.
A home-stay where the home is a 300-year-old palace, dreamingly grazing at the wooded Aravallis stands the palace of Chanoud Garh. It's unperturbed by the fast-changing world; knowing that its ramparts are strong enough to keep any sandstorm of change from threatening what it has preserved within. Maybe it's just following the strict instructions left by Thakur Anoop Singh ji, when he built Chanoud Garh as a home for his generations to come. And thirteen generations later, the 200,000 square foot palace still loyally serves his present-day descendants. Every bit of the palace has been carefully preserved to lead you back to the era of the gallant rulers. The delicate stone filigree Jharokhas, the rough marble pillared corridors, the Grand Durbars, the winding doorways that lead to courtyards or opulent lawns, the strong colonial and local influence in the rooms; all whisper small snippets of history. And while the chirping of talkative parrots in the verandahs or the fluttering of pigeons bathing in the fountains may often break this historical reverie, the peacocks dancing in the courtyards will lure you into yet another trance.Hotel Details
Dev Shree luxury hotel in Deogarh, is situated on the edge of the Ragho Sagar lake with the Gokul Fort at the far end, perched on a hill. The sun rises over the Fort streaming through palm trees on the swimming pool. The large verandah overlooking the lawn stretches out to the water infusing a sense of calm. The lake plays host to a large variety of migratory birds in the winter- welcome visitors. Dev Shree has been constructed in a traditional haveli style with deep verandahs, pretty courtyards of Rajput architecture and influence. The interiors are airy and spacious, and the dÃ©cor has a contemporary twist. In the words of one of the guests “gone is the musty, dusty feel so often associated with traditional rural propertiesâ€. The central courtyard is lovely to soak in the warm sun or sit by the cauldron of fire on the cold winter evenings. As the sun sets one hears the villagers returning to their homes with their cows and goats, a golden time of day referred to locally as “gaudhuliâ€. All the bedrooms offer views of the gardens, some with sit-outs and others with bay windows (gokhras).Hotel Details

The Maharajas of yesteryears too enjoyed their luxuries wherever they went and particularly so when out on shikar (hunting trips). The royal camp would be equipped with every comfort, regardless of what it took to create such luxury for the royal entourage. One of Rajasthan's leading crafts and (now a popular export) are luxury tents and if you get the option to stay at the trend-setting Royal Jodhpur Tented Camp be assured of enjoying a living-historic experience that has long passed into legend for those who have been thus privileged to enjoy. Created from weather-proof cotton canvas these lavish tents are equipped with hand-crafted furniture and upholstery sourced locally. The outdoor verandah with each tent is the perfect sit-out for an early cup of tea. Traditional gourmet meals are arranged in the great dining tent while the soft desert evenings rock to the sounds and rhythms of local musicians, dancers, puppet shows, jugglers, flaming torches and camel parades.Hotel Details
