5 Good and Not-so-Good Things about Neemrana Fort Palace

Hiya Everyone, πŸ™‚

I thought I’d list down some of the best and not-so-good points about Neemrana Fort Palace.

  1. It is a beautiful old fort. The lanes, and the doors especially will take you back in history. The rooms of course are nothing like we have seen before. Staying here is an experience in itself.
  2. The staff is really helpful and nice.
  3. It is a perfect honeymoon destination. We have seen so many couples coming and going in these past two days. The place is peaceful and very big. No one bothers you…you can be in your own world and can just enjoy the company of your partner.
  4. There are a lot of things to do here – vintage car drive, trekking, a walk to ‘some’ 9 storied well, zipping… We didn’t do much of it because we have just been way too sleepy and lazy after coming here. πŸ˜›
  5. Food is pretty good.

The not so good things

  1. No room service and no TV. in the room.
  2. There are fixed timings for meals. I felt like I have been transported to my hostel – 8-10 brekky; 12-2 lunch, 5-6 tea, 8-10 dinner.. We used to shudder at the thought of skipping meals in hostel because if you skip one meal, you’d have go hungry. I started getting this feel here as well. loll!!
  3. No hair dryers …not even in the spa. Thankfully I packed mine. I had a bit of previous experience with Neemrana so …
  4. The food is yum but so fattening. They have buffet in all three meals so either you eat what is being served or you survive on salads. I like my warm meals so for me food had been quite a bit of challenge here.
  5. Sanjeev is so unhappy with the alcohol here. All of them are ‘made in Rajasthan’ variety so you know… πŸ˜›

Despite its cons , I would give it a 4.5/5 experience. We have had such a great time. We barely get time to sit together and talk while we are in Delhi. We got an opportunity to totally make up for it. Every day we have sat on our terrace and spent time chit-chatting. Sanjeev got to read so much. It had just been sooo brilliant overall. πŸ™‚

    • Rati says:

  2. Bhumika says:

  3. jomol says:

    • Rati says:

      i know.. hihihih πŸ˜› Yeah Jomo.. no TV. It felt weird πŸ˜› But dint miss it much . :)) Thankoo :-*

  4. Akshata says:

    • Rati says:

      yeah sometimes its fine. I didnt even miss it much but you know it was quite shocking for me to know that there was no tv in the room. How could they not have it? πŸ˜› πŸ˜› Thanks :))

  6. Nandini says:

    That green is gorgeous on you, Rati! Ahh I’m so jealous of how much you’ve traveled so fast! πŸ˜› I’ve noticed that even the poshest of hotels can be a letdown sometimes in certain aspects. The Hidesign Hotel in Pondi looks lovely, I’m yet to stay there but the food was just terrible and substandard. But ah well, since Neemrana had so many redeeming aspects I’m sure you guys must’ve had fun. Haha the alcohol part when you said ‘made in rajasthan’ brought one word to my mind – ‘theka desi sharab’ πŸ˜› how are you otherwise?? :*

    • Rati says:

      yeah I agree. But as I said the experience had been brilliant despite its cons. πŸ™‚ Guess wont be staying at hidesign hotel when we come to pondi. πŸ˜‰

      • Nandini says:

        Yeah, and let me know when you do visit Pondi, I know the place like the back of my hand :)) I’d tell you the best restaurants etc so you don’t have to have a bad experience. The weather at Neemrana seems lovely from the pics, all cool and windy πŸ™‚

  7. Kat says:

    Very refreshing look..Love the hair style…The jeans fits you so well.
    Read great stuff about this hotel a lot..Would like to visit some time..In fact,there is so much to explore in India, is not it ?
    The cons you listed can be a total let down..I really need a TV in the hotel room. I managed without a TV at home for an year. Then gave in πŸ™‚
    Even with the cons listed, it still looks very appealing. Guess the idea is to let the guests be in touch with themselves and spend some quiet relaxing time.

    • Rati says:

      Thanks Kat. :)) I agree there is just sooo much to explore in India and I feel fortunate enough to be able to experience all these places. πŸ™‚

      God! how did you survive without TV for an year?? Whyyyy? lol!!!

      Yeah I agree but you know it shouldn’t be forced. It should be an option. πŸ™‚

      • Kat says:

        I like the way you asked ‘why ???’..:) I used to read a lot before. With so many other options available to keep myself occupied slowly drifted away from reading. So, not having a TV was a conscious decision. Plus, there is so much trash on TV nowadays. Wanted to stay away from it all. I enjoy it during my vacations though. Honestly, I did not miss it at all. Even now, I don’t have cable. I do watch movies on the big screen. That is the only reason why it is there..

        • Rati says:

          I can imagine but I can’t imagine. lol!! I quite like watching TV honestly. My mom used to tease me that she’d gift only TV on my wedding. πŸ˜› but sadly these days nothing good comes up. So I kind of reply on the movie channels. :))

          and movies on big screen is the best thing EVER. Totally love doing it. :))

          Whatever works for you. πŸ™‚

          • kat says:

            “I can imagine but I can’t imagine”..haha..:) You are cute.
            Well, I have watched 10 episodes of ‘Prison Break’ back to back on my Mac even when I did not have the TV at home..There is that fair share of madness to balance it..

  8. With or without hair dryer, you do look beautiful. I actually love the tousled hair and the color combo, STUNNING>

  9. neha s. says:

    loved the heels soo super hot.. even the lime green-ish shirt.. super fresh! (and im obsessed with that colour nowadays, even cobalt blue)
    i couldnt come around to comment on previous post but loved the agra hotel as well and the outfit u chose to wear there was simply superb! even i would just wear something like that old nawabi style inspired clothes!

    • Rati says:

      Thank you neha. I bought this shirt a while back but sometimes you just wait for the right moment to wear those clothes. Isn’t it? πŸ™‚ I dont have anything else in this color in my closet. May be I should try some more of this shade. πŸ™‚

  10. Dipti says:

    wow… just wow.. I’d totally love to visit this place.. and your outfit is just amazing. My list keeps getting bigger with each and every outfit post of yours.. πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

  11. Leez says:

    You look gorgeous!! Love the shirt especially. Not so good things no. 1 and 2 sound like good things to me. πŸ™‚ Made in Rajasthan alcohol is a serious letdown though! And is the food all Rajasthani? I, somehow, think of all Rajasthani and Punjani food as being laden with ghee/butter.

    • Rati says:

      I have done 1 and 2 for so many years in hostel that I don’t want to do it atleast when I am travelling and in a mood to relax. hihih πŸ˜›

      Surprisingly very less food was rajasthani. But that butter paneer masala, dal makhni, fired rice and all those kinds… I mean it was yum but eating 3 heavy meals a day is not something I like to do….and I am not the kinds who likes to survive on salads. SO it was quite a challenge for me to balance out the meals… I can tell you I failed. πŸ˜› Phew!!

  12. Surbhi Agarwal says:

    Being A resident of DELHI NCR, i am almost in love with everything baout it but you will be surprisedto know that i dint know abount the neemrana as much i got to know now..Thennkss!!!

  13. Mishti says:

    Its been ages i haven’t checked faux pas, n now wen i do “GOSH!!! you look gorgeous !!!!” love the background, your neon shirt color contrasting with that of the fort’s. And yes about the eyes…. *SEXO!* how did you do it? Also I love the fitiing your jeans!!! Total package πŸ˜€

  14. abhilasha says:

    forget the fort, forget the staff…my my ur looking smashing..that shirt and those shoes r to die for πŸ™‚

  15. Aru says:

    Such a pretty combination. Green n baby pink. Loved the flying type hair.looks permed’ish in one of those fotos. And coming to the no TV sometimes such a blessing ‘cos u end up doingother stuff you know. You must try the eco friendly hotel near aurobindo ashram on the way to pondicherry called ‘ The Dunes’. No TV types.. nice experince. Long walks, reading, drives on scooters, chill out by the pool etc etc..

    • Rati says:

      I just scrunched them aruna. It was a good change for me as well. :)) I know no TV was a blessing so now I am totally overdoing it over the weekend. πŸ˜› πŸ˜› Yeah when we’d go to pondi.. somehow that we are just not able to fit into our plans. Lets see when we go there. totally want to. You make it sound so awesome. :)) Thanks πŸ™‚

  16. Soni says:

    Its looks like Neemrana Fort Palace lacks basic amenities like a TV set and hair dryer. Thus giving a real “Fort” like ambience in 21st century.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
