“This sublime and super-romantic property takes you back to the 17th century with its rambling gardens, authentic styling and charming atmosphere. A pool, spa and all modern comforts are all reasons why you wouldn’t want to leave this beautiful escape, but venture beyond and you’ll find excellent hikes, tiny villages and world-heritage temples and forts.”
Rawla Narlai is a meticulously restored heritage hotel located in the heart of a small traditional town popular with Hindu pilgrims and bursting with activity and colour.
The 24 rooms are set around a courtyard and are characterful and stylish with a blend of contemporary comforts and traditional elegance. Each one features a modern bathroom stepping out to a private terrace and pretty views. Wake to the sounds of the 17-century village, and take in the spiritual energy from the invigorating air descending from the nearby Shiva Temple.
The restaurant serves traditional Rajasthani food (curried goat, lamb and chicken, a good range of vegetarian dishes, and bread straight from the clay oven) in a breezy dining room or on the terrace.
To add to the romance, this rambling country house boasts a magnificent pool hidden in a walled garden: spa treatments are available beside the pool.
