We stayed as a family of 3 for a couple of nights as part of our tour through India and really loved this place. Margaret and Inder were lovely hosts and really make you feel like you are at home with friends. The setting is fantastic for relaxing, reading and enjoying rural life. Margaret runs the kitchen and prepares lovely meals with local ingredients and even let our 10 year old daughter hang around to "help" a bit in the kitchen (which she absolutely loved). Inder toured us around town and showed us many aspects of the villagers daily living that we would not have been able to see and experience otherwise. Both are lovely people and offer great conversation and hospitality. We would have stayed much longer if we could. Highly recommended.

Our 16 day journey in India included stays at Palaces, Haveli's, Modern 5 Stars and this gem in the middle of rural India. We stayed three nights on our way from Jodphur to Udaipur. This was a perfect place to let down, be at home, and appreciate the non-tourist aspect of India. Our driver was well taken care of: something to note because it is off the beaten path. Our host gave us a tour of the village. We got to see the school and the young people rehearsing for Republic Day. A highlight was seeing a farm and learning about the crops. As you can imagine we enjoyed wonderful home cooking at Fort Dhamli. The nightly barbecues in the hotel's courtyard under the stars shared by our hosts, Inder Singh and Margaret Reid were unique. We also had a special treat of seeing and hearing a local bard that came one evening. The courtyard is lovely with pomegranate trees and exotic birds. This is a hotel to get away from the noise and distractions of the modern world. My husband and I had lovely, quiet naps in our authentically decorated room and would awake to chai and chats with our hosts in the courtyard. Don't expect tv or internet. This is your time to get in touch with life the way it should be.

We unfortunately stayed there only one night. Inder Singh, the owner, was a real charmer and his Fort a lovely place to stay. Really quiet with an authentic village experience. The website is far from the reality. Hope they will be able to update it with nicer pictures. We had one of the best dinner in our stay in Rajasthan : roasted wild boar hunted by Inder with roasted potatoes and yummy gulab jamu from the village bakery. Hope to go back there again for a longer stay !

Fort Dhamli - A different but very worthwhile experience in a very off-the-tourist path village in the Pali district (near Jodhpur). Fort Dhamli is a very small village of about 2000 people, with nothing to offer a tourist, except for the experience of being in a rural village with minimal tourist traffic. There were no other people staying there when we were there - my sense is that the occasional guest comes, but it's not a regular occurrence. The building is a one-story building surrounding a courtyard, with bedrooms along one side. The owner (or Thakur), is a descendent of the family that had been the feudal head, but though he no longer owns the villages, his role is still very much the unofficial village head. I had read about Fort Dhamli in a travel report on another travel board, and was intrigued by the idea of the village tour, the primary reason for going. As we were Ina 3 week tour of Rajasthan and Varanasi, we only had the one night. Getting here was a long drive through small towns and roads that seemed to be endless, passing through many small towns on some pretty rough roads. We arrived late in the day, and were welcomed by Inder Singh, and Robyn, the cook, brought drinks. We were the only ones there, and it was a bit odd, but their welcome eased the slight discomfort. I was most disappointed by the fact that Inder's friend/companion, Margaret Reid, was not there when we visited. She was the person I had corresponded with, and since we were the only tourists there, it would've been nice to have someone else to interact with. We took a short walk on our own, discovering that part of a wedding procession was to take place later that evening. After dinner, Inder Singh provided horse and decorations for the event. We hung out for a long time with a number of local folks, waiting for the party to arrive, but after too long a wait, we called it a night. The next morning, Inder took us around town, taking us into both the untouchables home "street" and then, a more middle class home. We walked through the streets, where folks all greeted Inder. He then brought us to the girls' school, which he and his friend, Margaret, had started 10 years earlier. For me, this was the highlight of the tour. My husband was a bit disappointed, since most of the men were away from the village for work. The room was comfortable, and the meals were very good and generous. Robyn's cooking is excellent, and service was impeccable. Overall, it was a very good experience, which added immeasurably to our experience of the trip. The fact that it was not a typical tourist destination made it unique, though we didn't have enough time to benefit from the other offerings provided by Inder. Given the distance, I'm not sure I would go for one night.
