Testimonials: Hotel Neemrana Fort Palace
Always a highlight in our trip
"This was the third time we returned to Neemrana Fort We had to travel all the way from Taiwan to India to visit this fort. I guess that would tell how much we love this fort. For this time we were very fortunate that General Manager Vivek Shukla helped us (a lot) to get the rooms we really wanted and everybody was very happy. The rooms were clean and neat and details were taken care of. The housekeeping staff was doing a very good job. Since this is a huge property many things are impossible with these kinds and polite staff. Really want to give them credits here. For dining, we had buffet dinner The salad section was very nice and Indian cuisines fit our foreign stomachs. Since this was the final leg of our trip everybody was excited to see the Chinese noodles and it tasted delicious. One thing we really admire about Neemrana is its philosophy of aesthetics, from the use of space, no matter how tiny it is, to the fabric in the rooms (curtains, tea tray covers. etc.) every detail makes the rooms outstanding. It’s not the kind of hotels one has in mind. But it is the unique kind which draws us back, again and again, I first came to know the Neemrana Fort in 2006 when CNN covered the story about the restoration of this property and its two chairmen, Mr. Aman Nath, and late Mr. Francis Wacziarg. I remember they sat in the courtyard talking about their philosophy about the fort and the hard work from the beginning. I told myself I had to visit the fort one day because it was unique. It took me seven years to make my first visit here and have become a fan. For people who love architecture, restoration and old-world charms, the fort is absolutely a destination."

"It was in my bucket list and I am fortunate to stay in Heritage N Historic Neemrana Fort palace Hotel which is of 554 years old.
This lovely property is very well mentioned & artistically / elegantly decorated by MD Shri Aman Nath, a great person, & life time achievement winner of National Tourism Award, Govt of India.
I strongly recommend visiting this property. The location and views from the hotel are real treasure. The heated swimming pools are divine! It is the best property i have ever seen n stayed.
Shri Vivek Shukla, General Manager, a well groomed, handsome n very hospitable, talkative gentlemen, personally took interest n shown me all the areas n unique rooms. He has thorough knowledge of not only the fort but also about the History n culture of India in General too.
He motivated me to do adrenaline-pumping adventure activity of ‘Zipline’ over the fort. After which my fear of height has gone n I gained a sense of accomplishment. Thank you so much Shri Shukla.
Because of such many Royal, Unique n warm experiences, I really felt like a King! Neemrana will be an added reason for me to travel to Rajasthan again. Keep it up!"

AMAZING HOSPITALITY, NEAT AND CLEAN ROOMS, DELIGHTFUL WELCOME TO THE GUESTS
"I would like to share that during my stay to Neemrana palace, I got sudden pain in my chest and I was unable to take a proper breath at midnight. My companion called the front desk and immediately they took me to the nearest hospital on their feet and admitted me with their best. They all supported me at my horrible time and stayed with me in hospital. The staff of Neemrana Palace took special care of me and shifted me to he big and best room without any charges so that I can take proper rest without any interfering. I seriously thankful to all staff of Neemrana palace and express my heartfelt gratitude to all members. They treated me as a family member during my hospitalization even when my own family members were not there. Thanks to Neemrana!"

Queen Elizabeth’s niece, Princess Sarah Armstrong-Jones, on her honeymoon: "Simplicity and style are so difficult to achieve together… Neemrana is the most beautiful place we’ve stayed anywhere in the world."
Kate Winslet, after the Titanic: "The Chandra Mahal is my favourite room in the whole world. I’ll be back soon." Two months later she did return!"
"This property transports you to a different time and era. The food is marvellous, the rooms are spectacular, the ambience is rejuvenating and the staff is extremely friendly and cooperative. This is a very environment-friendly establishment and they do not have room service. No TVs to bother you or disrupt your calm. Sans the idiot box, you can shill in your room, go for a long walk, spend time on their numerous picturesque nooks and terraces and just wash away all your worries. We had gone there for our company retreat and there couldn't have been a better pick. All of us got unique rooms and we noticed our childlike curiosities brought back to life away from the hustle and bustle of the corporate world. They have a beautiful hall that we rented out for our sessions and the open lawns gave us space to work and bond together through team building exercises. We stayed for four days and that still seemed like a very short time. My advice to fellow travellers - bring your comfortable walking shoes; take a long weekend to come here; do visit their spa and treat your sweet tooth on the wonderful homemade jams (served as a part of the breakfast buffet). PRO TIP - Try their laal maas, moong daal ka cheela, mango mousse and of course the daal baati churma."

"We were looking for an exclusive dinner venue for a group. It was a fantastic experience.Coach does not have an approach to hotel's main entrance, although it is 5 minutes walk. we called hotel manager Mr Siddhartha Sharma. We were amazed to see hotel's staff was waiting for us on the main road. The ambience was a good and lavish buffet. things were timely organized. We were impressed by all the hotel's staff, the view of the sunset was awesome. It was a truly unforgettable experience of Neemrana Fort, a place to recommend for day outing as well as night stay for a Royal feel."

"One of those profound experiences... a yardstick with which to measure other retreats/hotels."

"You have created frames that change at the end of every corridor and unexpected opening. But this space is created by a poet like Aman, an aesthete like Francis."

"The oldest among the palace hotels and the closest to Delhi, Neemrana provides an evocative experience extending beyond the physical structure… providing in a real sense a brush with history… it has a mesmeric appeal, a haunting, romantic ambience."
- Destination Traveller, New Delhi
"Our stay at Neemrana Fort-Palace was one of the highlights of our trip for me. What you’ve done there is astounding. Two years ago we visited the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. I thought it was one of the most stunning buildings I’ve ever seen, but it was empty. At Neemrana it’s as if you brought the Alhambra to life. It was a truly extraordinary experience."

"I am not given to gushing usually, but since we walked into the fort, I have been gushing, and in superlatives. The gardens are glorious, the lighting superb, the staff welcoming without being intrusive. I think the words we have used most frequently while in the fort, and when talking about it since, have been ‘magical’, ‘fairy-tale setting’, and ‘perfect’."
- Ritu Chaudhry, Khushii
"Neemrana is, in my humble opinion, the “Fort of all Forts”, as I do believe that there isn’t and cannot be another like it."
- Kanwar Ratanjit Singh of Kapurthala
"The two days which followed at Neemrana were moments of marvelling : discovering hanging gardens, flowers, our room, the gift on the bed, the bathroom hollowed out in the rock, the songs of unknown birds in the morning, a monkey coming to trouble us on our second night, the labyrinth of the hotel, the basin encircled by fresh flowers and illumination at night..."
