Choki dhani is just like a small town representing whole rajasthan in one resort only. Its cultural activities at night attracts visitors to come there and enjoy as much as they can. The resort is very awesum to stay at. The interior and exterior decoration is so tremendous that one can actaully feel that he or she come at rajasthan village.Its full of all modern amenities and facilities. The terraces and jhoollas are very good. The food of Choki Dhani is marvellous. No one can beat that . The presentation of thali, the offering of food again & again, taste of chutney and all is so great that i feel like going there again. I avail the spa facility there and liked it very much. Its a beautiful place to spend.

Best Experience: Offering marvellous food again & again @ Chokhi Dhani...

Worst Experience: No worst ....... only swimming pool there not working.

Before you read this let me clear that this experience is only and only for outdoor chokhi dhani resort and not for hotel...I had been to Chokhi Dhani resort few yrs back when it was new. My wife haven been to Rajasthan and wanted to see Chokhi Dhani, So Idd, Sunday and Holi being 3 days holiday we decided to go to Jaipur. I tried many forums but found that there is no recent useful reviews about CD. So i decided to write one myself.
CD is a Rajasthani cultural resort 19 kms out of Jaipur. Earlier I had wanted to stay at the resort itself but found that there is not much to do during day time so I decided to do what everyone suggested- stay in main city and visit in resort at 6PM in evening when the out door resort opens. I stayed at my friends place Near Ajmer Highway.
So first what i expected of the resort
* Rajasthani Cultural Experience
*Great Food
*Different Activities associated with Rajasthani Culture
Being a 5 star rated resort my expectations were equally high

What I found
*The activities inside resort related to rajasthani culture have increased in number
*the place in terms of management is very poor
*Very poorly lit leads to confusion although it gives a lantern light experience but overall the effect is of dark place with almost no video recording possible w/o a flash light.
* the food is great and of course it\'s the high light of place but the quality has gone down
*non professional people attitude

In Summary had it not been for food I feel that the resort does not live upto it\'s name of 5* and I don\'t know if it\'s the resort or just the hotel which has 5* ratings The food itself is worth for all the money you pay

Best Experience: Lets now get into a bit of details regarding my experience. good and bad both are mentioned as they have to be seen in relation to each other.
we were 5 people adults and 2 kids of 3 and 2 yrs, we reached at 6:30PM there was no light on \'Chokhi Dhani Parking\' sign so we parked our car as everybody else near the road. We crossed the road to see \'Parking\' sign but then we had already parked our car. We went into the main gate to see 10-12 people already in line and 60-70 people standing around. My wife got us tickets @350 each, the ticket was a simple reciept with no of people mentioned and time of dinner marked at 10:15 PM. The guard lets us in and we find ourself in mid of people crowd and no knowing what to do. the initial experience feels of a chaotic atmosphere. on right there is a list of things to do-see inside. This is also the worst of experience as there are very very few arrows and I didn saw any guidemap, low wattage lamps also adds o the feeling of confusion. We decided to move left. Later we found that not only us but most of the people were confused where to go? or what way to proceed for dinner etc etc so we walked left and there was a dinner place with chairs and table, a puppet show with so low light and black colour clothed puppets were hardly clearly visible, nearby a place to put mehndi, and a photoshop to get your photo in rajasthani attire, starting 150 Rs/- .a museum, a dance stage opp puppet show, where 2 females were doing rajasthani dance. and then i lost where we went right or left or straight as the walkways are not clearly right or left. we saw a small market there, swings more dances of males and females at different places. palmist, magician, holi programme, elephant ride, camel ride, bhulbhuliya, old style movie box, a large bell with big wodden hammer etc Place to sit down were plenty but its easy to loose people as its dark and searching them needs for fanatic mobile calls. by 8:30 we had seen almost everything and kids were hungry, now the dinner time marked is 10:15, we went to place where there is older way of guest sitting on ground and eating food and the time was marked for it. infact the experience of sitting there is among the best but.....our number will start at 10:15 to line up and may take another 15-20mins to get a place,\'sir you can have dinner at the normal buffet if you want early\' so we went to have dinner at where we do self serving. The food was great specially churma and badam halwa. after dinner we picked our show pieces from shop writing names on rice and head back home.

Worst Experience: infact there were many bad experience which would have gone unnoticed if it was not for a \'5* resort\'

so these are the ones, you can decide which is worst

*starting fro ticket counter \' Sir whats with royal thali at 650 Rs and normal one at 350 Rs\' It\'s nothing madam the ticket is for 350 and u can get Royal one inside\' My wife felt as if he was avoiding giving the Royal Thali ticket to us. She felt that it was ment only for \'foreigners\' and not for indians and we could not find the option of upgrading inside later
* No maps or or very poor directions, confusing layout.
* Poorly lit pathways or show places (how many times I have said this?)
* Although it written at gate \'tipping is not encouraged\' but everyone wants some tip
* Shows start and finishes abruptly and one never knows when to go where, sometimes 2 dance show go together sometimes none is performing.
*Camel ride is along the path where people tend to walk and I myself saw atleast 4 incidences in short stay there when people had to literally jump off the way to save them self one of those being my friends sister who was talking on mobile when a camel almost banged into her. It\'s highly dangerous as the speed of camel is also very fast which I believe is to do more rounds and make more money and I myself grown in rajasthan haven seen camels walk so fast normally.
* There were no policeman in sight except at gates, even i couldn see official people in field for help nor could i see any \'Exit\' markings which is very very surprising as the place of full of wooden huts and wooden buildings which renders it to be a fire susceptible, no first aid kits or signs or fire fighting equipment seen.

* I could clearly make it out that the performers were more \'interested\' in foreigners as they give more tips which to my senses does not feel good
