Travelogue: Nahargarh | Ranthambore (Part-1)

Hey everyone!

Around the end of May, two girls packed their bags and left on a trip to Nahargarh, Ranthambore, Rajasthan. Today I am going to take you all on a virtual tour of our trip. Get ready to be immersed in luxury!

The entrance!

We left from New Delhi by an over-night train, and reached Sawai Madhopur station in the wee hours of the day, from where we were transported to our hotel- the Alsisar Hotel in Nahargarh, Ranthambore, which is about a 10 minute drive from the railway station. Reaching Sawai Madhopur by train is the best means of transport, since the nearest airport (Jaipur) is about 180 kms anyway!

Upon reaching the palace hotel, we were taken to our rooms via these long and mesmerizing walk-ways, decorated with antiques all around. The beauty of the palace (let’s not call it a hotel, moving forwards) leaves one spellbound, and the moment you enter the palace, your mind gets transported to another era from the past! The best part is that even though this property, built by His Highness Maharaja Gaj Singh Alsisar Ji, is just about 11 years old, it has been done up in a very antique fashion, with all historic decor nuances of the Rajputana preserved beautifully.

Our room!

The rooms have been done up in keeping with the heritage, and the decor and ambience reflects the same, and all necessary modern amenities like a modern bathroom complete with a shower cubicle, a dressing area, a phone line and tea & coffee maker have been integrated into the system carefully.

Once we had freshened up for the day, we were taken on a guided tour of the entire property. You can see all the images below. More pictures and a special video will come up soon!

For the day, I wore a simple outfit- a casual tee, paired with a maxi skirt with a knee-high slit, and flats. Cat-eyed round sunnies kept my eyes cool! This kept me comfortable in the hot weather!

The reading room!

The reading room is the only room in the entire property with a TV, and trust me you, we didn’t miss having a TV in our room for even a second during the entire two days!

After a delicious breakfast and lunch, with a quick nap in between, we headed over to the Ranthambore Fort in the evening. And OMG! That place is full of langurs. We could hardly click any pictures, because all our attention was on saving ourselves- not that the langurs were bothering us directly, but having hundreds 20-30 of them around us all the time was very stressful! Phew! Thank God for our fort guide, who walked with us all the time! But all this effort was worth it coz we spotted a leopard on our way back! And they say it is very rare to spot a leopard! So, yayy! He crossed our cab, and waited around the side for about 10 seconds, before vanishing into the jungle again.

By the time we came back, it had gotten dark, but a glistening full moon gave us company over a cup of coffee in the lawn! Then we headed over to the Vilasa by Tattva Spa at the hotel (read full spa review) and got ourselves a foot massage, while we relaxed around the poolside. Thereafter, it was time to deck up for a royal dinner at the royal dining hall!

For dinner, I wore this interesting outfit by Shruti Sancheti- palazzos paired with a long kurti with high-low details at the front, and a sheer back. Loved how the outfit added the royal touch to the evening!

After the dinner, and a long walk in the corridors, we retired for the day. But not before another cup of coffee and checking my mails ­čśŤ
