Rohetgarh – Jodhpur
The magnificent fort of Rohetgarh was the fortified desert home of descendants of the 16th century Rathore of the Champawat clan. A bastion of proud Rajput traditions, Rohetgarh fort is a veritable oasis, on the banks of a lake, with spacious lawns. Fresco’s on the tall gateway, brightly painted in the traditional style, herald your entry into this charming world. The portico is a warm & informal place decorated with antique hunting rifles, shields and spearheads, daggers, trophies and original paintings. Exquisitely carved furniture, delicate hand block prints and original photographs adorn individual rooms, which provide all modern amenities.
Rohetgarh is a recognized Heritage Hotel. Rare among hotels it has remained a family home, where the members of the erstwhile ruling family welcome you personally as their honoured guest. Its elegantly appointed rooms have their own individual character and furnishings. Rooms are air-conditioned and have attached bathrooms and modern facilities. The drawing room has ornately carved wooden ceiling, traditional lamps and old photographs. You are invited to relax in spacious veranda lounges decorated with historic trophies and artefacts.
There is a beautifully designed swimming pool with four charming pavilions at each corner where musicians perform in the evenings as dinner is served by the poolside. Often, folk dancers enliven the evenings with their vibrant hues and vigorous rhythms.
