Trip to Flying Fox at Neemrana Fort Palace (Rajasthan, India)

Hi Friends, Kya baat hai..bahut din ho gai hum log kahi chull kerne nahi gai yaar. Getting bored naa..

So, Live like a king, or at least a minor courtier.......Ha ha ha

Lets plan this week end i.e. on 19th July for Neemrana Fort - A Majestic Experience Only 100 kms Away From IGI Airport. This is the place where we do al lot of CHULL to go. Neemrana is an ancient 14th century fort that has been converted into a hotel of sorts.

The below info I have found regarding this fort. It is always better to get some info before planning to any trip...Lets have a look:

The first thing that strikes you as you drive up the curved rampart driveway is how unlike a hotel this place really looks. Therein lies the charm. It is not a hotel in the conventional sense, but rather a place to relax, retreat, and literally get away from it all. (The entire place has only one tv, a phone only at reception, and does not recieve the newspaper).

Another charming feature of this remarkable place is that all of the rooms are different. Most of the rooms are not original, because the majority of the hotel was rebuilt, but all of the rooms have been decorated with care & each room a unique appeal. If you can, try and get into as many rooms as you can just to see what they are like. Most of the rooms are fairly small, featuring a small ante-room of sorts.

There's also a pool that's on a plateau. Apart from Swimming pool and Jacuzzi, there is an exclusive health spa offering Ayuervedic rejuvenation and other Holistic treatment after Consultancy with a Doctor. Plus, free yoga and meditation exercises are also available. It is a worthwhile experience. The fort also has an Indian and a French restaurant which are supposed to be quite good. My friends, if ever you are in Delhi, and you want to get away from the noise, the work, the pollution, the crowds, you should go to Neemrana. It's a place for romantics and dreamers. (sappy but true)
