I have always had a great passion for travelling and I try to dig deep into our country’s historical roots as far as I can. Understanding the different cultures in India has been my sole aim and it has taken me all across the country. And when I focussed on destinations closer to my hometown Jaipur I found so much more then I had anticipated. Rajasthan turned out to be much more than what the history books defined it to be. My trip started with a first class train travel to Alwar. I had booked a room at the Neemrana Fort and was met by their chauffeured car at the railway station.
The Neemrana Fort came highly recommended as it was a part of a large group of hotels across the country. The hotel was everything I had hoped for and more! As a renovated fort the hotel had managed to keep most of the essential charms of the fort while at the same time bringing about a few changes that modern guests would prefer. The gardens at the hotel were well-manicured and greatly appealed to the nature lover in me. From my room I had a spectacular view of the city and all of its historical sites.
I spent most of my time exploring the ruins and palaces of the city and learning of their glories from history books as best as I could. In my spare time I would visit the hotel’s in-house spa where I would discard all my bodily tensions and relax. There was also an in-house restaurant at the hotel that would serve only the best and most delicious dishes from the local cuisine. These meals to me where the highlight of the trip and I would do anything to have just one more bite!
