Mihirgarh, Rajasthan

Mihirgarh, a Relais and Chateau property has been created in the style of a small fort, having just nine suites, most with private plunge pools, the hotel has 360° views and is surrounded by the Thar desert.  Luxury is the order of the day here.  Each of the spacious suites has adjoining sitting rooms, courtyard and terrace facing out to the surrounding countryside.  An infinity pool, shady sitting areas and a barbeque area all fan out from the main dining room which is wonderfully airy in summer and warm and cosy in winter.

The brains and inspiration behind this magical, small hotel, built of mud, wattle and wood, are the Rohet Family who are exceedingly keen horsemen and who boast some of the country’s finest horses. Come here to ride, explore the wonders of Jodhpur, go on a camel or village safari, or pamper yourself in the excellent spa. Privacy and intimacy are the bywords here. A unique place where the outdoors comes indoors! This hotel provides the ultimate in luxury and comfort and is highly recommended for anyone who thinks that it may be time to treat themselves.
