Mihir Garh is the kind of hotel that Hollywood location scouts dream of: an imposing fortress looking out across a landscape that exemplifies Rajasthan’s wild, rugged beauty.
You need not worry about the desert location, however. Mihir Garh is far from spartan and offers a wide range of nine luxurious suites, all of which contain a fireplace handcrafted by women from neighbouring villages. Alishan Suites are on the ground floor, and have their own plunge pools and personal courtyards. The Shandar Suites are on the first floor and have an open air jacuzzi and a private terrace.
If you’re in search of an indulgent spa treatment, you can head to the Vilasa Spa, which is set within a walled garden and offers a range of therapies that incorporate Ayurvedic products, including reflexology massages and a variety of facial scrubs. Day trips to a local village can be arranged, during which you will meet and learn about the everyday lives of the Bishnoi, Raika, Pliwal, and Brahmin communities.
