Ramathra Fort

Rural Rajasthan

The beautifully renovated Ramathra Fort effortlessly combines its heritage with chic modern luxury. Staying in a genuine castle is a true bucket list experience, offering historical insights around every twist, turn and turret. The rampart walkways showcase incredible views over the lake and wild surrounding countryside, while the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing massage on the daybeds, or a soak in the rooftop jacuzzi, reminds you that you are immersed in high-end luxury.

Part of the fort’s interior has been converted into bright accommodation with sweeping views. The luxury suites include cosy seating areas and secluded balconies for private relaxation, while other rooms open out onto the sheltered courtyard. Elegant four poster beds and a beautiful colour palette feature throughout the property, adding class and character. Meanwhile, out on the lawns, a range of luxury pavilion tents offers accommodation with a hint of bohemian grandeur.

Location

Why we love it

Discover what to expect from staying at Ramathra Fort

Remote location

Whilst staying at this strikingly unique property, you can take the opportunity to step back from busy urban life and stroll through India’s rural countryside. Get the most from the remote location by completely switching off, leaving day-to-day stresses behind, and revelling in the home-cooked food, sunset boat rides and sophisticated surroundings.

Tuck in!

The food at Ramathra is a little bit special. Its secluded setting makes it the only place to dine in the area, but we would choose to eat here 3 nights in a row even if the choice was greater. Their ‘farm to table’ concept gives guests a taste of the region by serving locally-sourced, seasonal produce, prepared in the family kitchen using traditional local flavours and cooking methods. It’s fair to say the food is the headline act each evening, but enjoying your meal al fresco in the moonlight certainly calls for an encore.

What can you do there?

Enjoy a range of local specialities and international favourites, home-cooked and made with the resort’s own farm-to-table ingredients, either in the lounge or outdoors under the stars. Trek to a nearby village and indulge your senses in a full body massage from a local masseur. Take a picnic or go boating on the lake, and explore the surrounding hills before returning for a moonlight cocktail on the ramparts.
