The Bagh

Rajasthan & the North

Rating: Modest    

The Bagh overview

The Bagh occupies ten acres of 200 year old gardens and orchards. Originally a ‘charbagh’ or four-part garden, it has been home to one of Bharatpur’s' noblest families for centuries and is today a delightful small ‘heritage hotel’. Various buildings, both new and old, are scattered around the premises and are connected by pretty stone walkways, lined with shrubs and sweet smelling flowers. The gardens are a treat to wander around and are alive with birdsong from the many varieties of birds who have made this haven their ‘home’. Different buildings house different clusters of bedrooms, the bar, the restaurant and a small massage centre by the swimming pool. The spotless and comfortable rooms have a certain simple elegance with colourful yet subtle furnishings which fit with the wooden furniture and stone floors.


Open:  The Bagh is open all year.

Location:  The Bagh is set in 12 acres of gardens in Bharatpur, Rajasthan. It is a short drive from Keoladeo Ghana National Park, well-known for its profuse birdlife. The nearest airport is Agra, 54kms away.

Rooms:  The hotel has 23 rooms simply furnished with wooden furniture. All have en-suite bathrooms. Rooms are spread across 5 buildings, each with verandas and terraces.

Activities:  Sightseeing in and around Bharatpur, bird watching trips in Keoladeo National Park. At the hotel guests can take leisurely strolls in the garden or enjoy a work out in the gym. Guided excursions to sites of interest in and around Bharatpur, including the Taj Mahal, can be arranged.   

Facilities:  The main restaurant specialises in vegetarian cuisine while the café has a large sitting area and offers a selection of drinks and snacks. There are indoor and outdoor bars. The library is stocked with information on natural history and ornithology, complimented by talks and presentations by local expert naturalists. The hotel spa offers Ayurvedic and Western therapies, a sauna and Jacuzzi. There is a well-equipped gym and an outdoor swimming pool. The gardens are filled with trees and flowers which attract birds and small animals. There is a network of paths to help guests explore. Artwork by contemporary women artists is on display throughout the hotel.  

Dining:  Meals are taken at individual tables.

Children:  Children of all ages are welcome.

Health:  We recommend malaria prophylactics for travel to India.

"The hotel was very good - however we were the only 2 people in it so no atmosphere. Staff were not as friendly here. But the grounds were wonderful. Pool needed cleaning."

Anon (19/02/2019)
"Not a good stay, thankfully only for one night. The room had no hot water. The next day when we had an early start for our only visit to Bharatpur there was no one in the dining room for breakfast. (Even though we were told it was open). Ourselves and another couple had to wait. Eventually someone dashed in at 6.40 and tried to sort out breakfast for us all before we left at 7.00 to meet our guide. We managed a rushed part breakfast and half a cup of tea and was late for the guide who rang to check where we were!! Would not recommend."
