Ratan Vilas, Jodhpur India, Rajasthan
Maharaj Ratan Singhji of Raoti constructed Ratan Vilas in 1920 and for years, it has been used as a private residence. Now converted into a great value heritage hotel, Ratan Vilas is a popular choice for those travelling through Jodhpur in Rajasthan thanks to its homely atmosphere, authentic and delicious Rajasthani cuisine, and warm welcome.
Guest rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished with lovely Indian pieces, and there are plenty of family photos to study on the wall. Some of the rooms feel a little dark, particularly those clustered around the courtyard under a canopy. All the same, the atmosphere is pleasant and the pool on-site is great. Enjoy simple pleasures such as breakfast served in the garden and delicious home-cooked Rajasthani meals under the stars in the courtyard in the evenings.
What really makes Ratan Vilas stand out is the standard of service here: it’s warm, welcoming, and always beyond the call of duty. If you’re after plentifly facilities or international five star luxury, you won’t find them at Ratan Vilas, so come here instead for a more personal, homely feel for your stay in Jodhpur and surrounds.
