Jodhpur accommodation - Rohet Garh
Just 45 minutes’ drive to the south of Jodhpur and situated on the edge of the Thar desert, it’s easy to forget where you are once you enter the peaceful flower filled gardens of Rohet Garh.
Built in the 17th century this little fort still belongs to the same family who turned it into a relaxed and friendly place to stay in the 1990s. Full of charm and character, Bruce Chatwin and William Dalrymple found inspiration for their writing while staying at Rohet Garh. 34 rooms and suites, of varying shapes and sizes, are decorated with traditional Rajasthani printed fabrics and face the garden, courtyard or lake and might have a high old wooden framed bed, wall painting or cosy window seat. There is also a swimming pool, cookery demonstrations and camel safaris with the lovely staff.
Although the royal family now lives in another nearby property, they are still very much hands on and enjoy meeting and chatting with guests as well as running a highly acclaimed stable of Marwari horses.
Riding is available for a variety of abilities, as well as bicycles and jeeps with drivers for excursions into the surrounding villages. Here you can meet Bishnoi people, conservationists of the countryside for centuries whose beliefs prevent them from killing animals or felling green trees.
