Rawla Narlai, a diligently restored and retreated 17th-century hunting lodge of the Royal family, is now one of the popular heritage hotels in the area Narlai, Rajasthan. En route Ranakpur in Rajasthan, this hotel sets in the heart of Aravalli Hills. With courteous staff, rooms of spectacular opulence and dinner at the ancient step-well under the stars make it a generous host amongst travelers.
Thousands of years ago, Lord Shiva used to do his meditation on a granite monolith. Known as Jaikalji by his followers and eventually, the mountain got its name as Jaikal Parvat (Mountain). Next to the hill is Rawla Narlai, a heritage resort that belonged to the Royal family of Jodhpur. In the 17th century, it refurbished and renovated by Maharaja Swaroop Singhji and Rani Usha into its original theme. Later, their children Maharaja Ragvindar and Maharaja Suryaveer took on the restoring of the property and did a tremendous job in containing both traditional and modern art.
Rawla Narlai restaurant has plenty of options for your dining, but the best experience that outgrows all the great experience on your stay at Rawla Narlai will be the 'Baori' (Stepwell) dinner. It is the most exclusive highlight of the property. A step-well that will take you back in the 7th-century, when people used to collect water during the monsoon. With hundreds of flickering 'Dias' (small oil lamps), folk music in the background and a traditional Rajasthani menu, you will bag (without a doubt) this incredible surprise home.
