Mihir Garh

Rajasthan & the North

Rating: Mid-range    

Mihir Garh overview

Mihir Garh, meaning 'sun fort', is built in the style of a traditional Rajasthani fort, It is a rural location, about 90 minutes from Jodhpur and 25 minutes from Rohet. From its elevated position there are panoramic views of the countryside, and it's a perfect contrast to the busy life of Indian cities. The hotel has an informal, intimate atmosphere. 
There are 9 suites offering spacious and luxurious accommodation. Each suite has a large bathroom and a living area festooned with colourful rugs, silks and local artwork. The open fireplaces can be lit in cooler months, and there's air conditioning to keep the summer heat at bay. Facilities include TV, DVD player, tea and coffee maker. Private terraces with either a jacuzzi or plunge pool add an extra touch of luxury.  
There are courtyards where you relax, a small bar and terrace, comfy lounge and a library with an impressive collection of books. The restaurant has a dining deck, so you can eat indoors or out.

"Mihir Garh is a very special place indeed.  Set in the middle of the Rajasthan countryside with superb views from every aspect this modern fort has been sympathetically built to reflect traditional local styles and has a very warm and comfortable feel about it.  It isn’t flashy but the 9 suites are extremely comfortable, spacious and either have their own private plunge pool or Jacuzzi.  With horses roaming in the field and views to die for this is the perfect place to bliss out for a few days. "
