The Ratan Vilas offers luxury and grandeur in a very familial setting. Built in 1920 by Maharajah Ratan Singhj, it was the Maharajah’s grandson and great-grandson who transformed the mansion into a hotel, and they live there until today.
Rooms and guest rooms house guests with period-appropriate furniture and linen, combined with all modern amenities such as air-conditioning.
The common areas offer Wi-Fi (not available in the rooms), and guests may relax among the courtyards, gardens, by the swimming pool or even the drawing room. All this surrounded by family pictures and baubles of bygone eras.
During the day, guests may relax at the pool or ask for a village safari, which can be arranged from the mansion itself.
Meals are served in the dining room (which is fully air-conditioned) or outside under the marquee. During the evening, local musicians may perform around the gardens.
Guests will definitely enjoy a personalized, intimate experience in a true family home, with all the charm of the past and all the amenities of modern day.
