It was nice experience visiting this place. I opted for this one against Pratap Palace as I was unable to get 2 rooms there.
Approach and location : The approach to this hotel is difficult without any signboard. On the maps, I figured out that it was close to Pratap Palace and thus followed their signboards. The road is very narrow on this stretch
Location and surrounding was peaceful and calm. Fresh air and majestic hills at the back. Hotel was good and gives you a royal feel.
At night, the banjara dance was awesome. We all enjoyed it.
Hotel was well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Now comes the room - They were nice and cosy on the first floor with dedicated balcony for the two room set and we occupied both first floor rooms. There were some electrical problems with the room like bulbs missing, hot water not coming in one of the room. They should install the security lockers inside the room rather than one has to order from the reception and they came and placed it in the room without any fixtures.
Restaurant serves pretty much decent food but it's expensive and many of the visitors rely on them due to non-accessibility of things outside.
I was expecting some vintage cars around and may be some elephants ride even though at an extra cost to complete the package.
Had gone to Ajmer few months back but Pushkar was not in my mind, we were actually planning for Jaipur but got down at Ajmer just to visit Ajmer dargah, after visiting Dargah we went to a local snack corner to plan out how to reach Jaipur, the owner of the snack corner saw that we were new to that place so told us, if you are on a holiday why don't you visit Pushkar just few km away (15km). He also told us that Brahma temple is very famous and also it's a hill station covered by mountains and lot of foreign tourists visit there. After thinking a while we just thanked him and went towards Pushkar.
I was shocked to see such a hill station in Rajasthan which is known for desert. The view was totally awesome till we reach on top where actually all Ghats and Brahma temple is situated. We planned out for Jaipur just to feel Rajasthani tradition so thought we shud check-in hotel which can give feel of this place. And Pushkar Palace was the best option we would get, typically decorated like old palaces of kings used to design there Haveli or Palace.
We went in and were stunned to see all walls and lobby was designed with mixture of antiques and modern art statues and paintings. It was full with most of Russian tourists. Almost every rooms were booked but manager managed to give us three rooms and we loved the way they welcomes their customers especially one who made advance bookings.
Rooms were spacious with palace type furnishing and view from the window was superb. We can see those ghats from windows and awesome view in each rooms. I was touched with the hospitality offered by the staff. It was full crowded still received instant service for everything we ordered or enquired.
Staff had full knowledge about the place so one of them became our short guide and gave sufficient info about where to visit and timings of aarti at temple, ghats. Also they arranged a two wheeler for us if we want to ride for few hours. Talking about food it was very tasty and keeping all the taste in mind there menu was full of varieties of cuisines including most of international dishes. It's walkable from lake ghats and temple so I will say it is the best stay for anyone who really need to enjoy there holiday at this perfect hill station. This palace adds beauty plus good service gives you more pleasurable experience.
Bhanwar singh palace is situated on outskirts of Pushkar. The resort is a big one and one of the biggest available in Pushkar. Huge lawns, heritage rajasthani look, nicely done up rooms with all amenities are few of the good things about this place.
They have a nice big pool and also some Indoor gaming options like a pool table.
The staff was good and was prompt in service as well as resolving the queries. The buffet spread is not a very big one if someone compares with Ananta but enough choices to have a good meal.
Overall after staying in 3-4 properties of Pushkar, I will go again in this one mostly due to the service, food taste and also value for money.
The ambience of the resort for a place in the dessert is just fabulous. The food choice is limited but the quality of food is excellent. Overall experience was breathtaking and a very relaxing trip that we had on Diwali weekend.
Best Experience: One of the best experiences on our stay was the \"Kafila\" This is a camel cart ride in the rural belt around the resort . We that is my husband and my 2 children we went for this ride and thoroughly enjoyed each and every moment. Also the fact that their swimming pool was operational during this period of the year, where we had a ball as we were the only familly in the entire pool enjoying and sunbathing. Though the water was very cold but the temperature outside was warm.
Worst Experience: I wont call it worst experience, but since there was only Indian food being served (Fantastic quality), for us it was a little too much to have during our stay there. Usually all four of us enjoy continental/ chinese/ etc. specially when we dine or holiday.
Bhanwar Singh Palace is a wonderful to stay. Rooms are very nice, Spacious and Comfortable.
Food was decent. They offered a buffet for lunch which had several variations of dishes.
Pool was decent and clean. About 5. 5feet Deep end. Fresh towels and pool side food and drinks were reservedly being served.
The Hotel organised a DJ party out in the open the second night of our stay and a traditional folk dance the night before. It was unexpected, but the outdoor dinner we took was entertaining since everyone booked there were enjoying the DJ and dance floor.
Rooms had the View of the Mountains and Valleys. Grounds were well kept. It always gives sanctuary to a very cute turtle injured and rescued from the outdoors.
A place of comfort and peace. We really enjoyed our stay.
Cons- cant really think of any. Its centrally located b/w Pushkar and Darga.
The road to the village is a little rough with road bumps and villages and no lights at night. It feels a little eerie but otherwise I came to realize that it was pretty safe.
