This fantastically set 16th-century palace is an ideal rural retreat 41km by road east of Chittorgarh. It’s a great place to settle down with a good book, compose a fairy-tale fantasy or just laze around. Rooms are romantic and luxurious, and there’s a pleasant garden courtyard and an airy restaurant serving Rajasthani food. It's popular with tour groups.
Reservations should be made through the website or through Chittorgarh’s Hotel Pratap Palace. The owners can arrange transfer from Chittor as well as horse and 4WD safaris, birdwatching, cooking classes, massage and yoga.
