Mihir Garh

1

Built it 2009 AD… Mihir Garh… or ‘The Fort of the Sun’ in an indulgent initiative from the House of the Rohet. Manifesting out of the golden sands of Manwar, It stands majestically to embrace the discerning traveler and shower upon him the legendary hospitality and the diverse flavours of the land.

Architecture and Design

This elegant structure finds its inspiration in the rural village architecture of Western Rajasthan, as can be seen with the tall mud walls, the slightly rounded corners, the numerous alcoves, and of course, the aesthetically conceived fireplaces. This fort indeed stands as a proud representative of all that its land is best known for: royalty, a robust culture and rustic charm.
In fact, from its conception, to its completion, every single workman involved in bringing Mihir Garh to life, hails from the region itself. Nothing has been outsourced. Instead, every nook and corner has been lovingly created by us, along with our very talented team. We would be delighted to share our dream with you: Mihir Garh, the haven where you can experience sheer lavishness amidst the wilderness of Thar.

Why Mihir Garh

…because Mihir Garh is an exclusive nine suite boutique hotel where each room offers you more than 1700 sq.ft. of pure luxury. The private terraces, courtyards, plunge pools and Jacuzzi seem to whisper a single word: Indulge. Here, serenity and splendour come together to create an experience for you. While exotic drinks from your personal mini-bar become the manna for a sultry summer afternoon, the fireplace morphs into an intimate friend for wintry nights. You can pamper yourself with the variety of treatments available at Mihir Garh’s Tulsi Spa or rejuvenate at the poolside while watching the endless deserts meditate with the horizons. The delectable cuisines too aim to please – from traditional to continental – to suit your palate.

…because Mihir Garh acts an envoy of Rajasthan’s rich heritage and culture. The majestic fort seems to emerge from the desert and complements the rugged beauty of the land. The workmen (over a hundred of them) come from the region itself bringing in the local lilt. The soft, stylish furnishings have been bought from the Jodhpur region alone. The village women of Khandi and Haji have lovingly created the fireplaces using age old technique of cow dung and clay! From paintings to curtain holders, every little thing has been specially designed for Mihir Garh.

…because Mihir Garh offers you a plethora of activities. The village Safari is our signature program and guests across cultures have referred to it as the “highlight” of their stay. The equestrian program is equally special as our horses belong to the famed ‘ Marwari’ breed – an ancient and indigenous breed of India, offering you an unparalleled riding experience. Al fresco breakfasts, amidst nature, ensure your day begins well. Royal picnics from an era long gone beside a lake so you can luxuriate under the specially designed tent while the, traditionally dressed servers cosset every need of yours. Culinary workshops and demonstrations are held so guests can learn to make the delicacies that they enjoy here. The recipes come from books on traditional Rajasthan cooking authored by the owner’s mother, Late Thakurarni Sahiba Jayendra Kumari.
Why Mihir Garh, you ask. And we tell you, Mihir Garh because, it is a tribute to all the things Rajasthan is best known for: A rich culture, warm hospitality, majestic deserts and of course, an experience that lingers on…
