This 17th century fortress which became an enchanting hunting lodge was gifted by Maharaja Umaid Singhji of Jodhpur to his younger brother Maharaj Ajit Singhji. Two decades later, Maharaj Swaroop Singh, his son, together with his wife Rani Ushadevi under took the project to restore this exotic villa to its true origins. The villa was later converted into this exclusive heritage hotel, with carved pillars, murals and covered varand as that add to its rustic charm.
Rawla Narlai, now a heritage hotel, is located in the heart of a typical Rajasthan village bustling with activity and bursting with color. The Rawla (fortress) however is an oasis of serenity and offers a splendid view of a gigantic [350 ft high] single rock of granite dotted with caves and temples, crowned by a statue of a white elephant - proud guardian to the open desert on one side and the crumbling Aravali hills on the other .
Comfortable rooms with modern bathrooms blend with the ancient way of Narlai, while offering a warm and homely atmosphere. For the more adventurous traveler, "Luxury Tents" provide a unique experience for those who want to experience a Rajasthan Caravan. Wake up to the sounds of this 17-century village, and take in the spiritual energy from the invigorating air descending from the Shiva Temple, lodged deep in a primal cave high on the hill. After breakfast, we encourage you to feed the harmless monkeys, if they come down the hills, as a token offering of prayers to Lord Hanuman. The 24 rooms within this luxurious ambience have the most modern amenities – a blend of contemporary comfort with traditional elegance.

These comfortable rooms with modern bathrooms are steeped in the history of the royal family of Jodhpur. Rooms are beautifully decorated with traditional furniture and fantastic fabrics, and are tucked away off the beaten track, away from the noise and hustle and bustle or urban India. An ideal stop to provide a unique experience for those who want to experience an authentic Rajasthan Caravan.
The step-well is an ancient treasure and dinners in the evening can take you back to the mists of time. During their outings in the jungle Rawla Narlai was once a private escape for members of the family, and occasionally the stepwell was the meeting place after a hectic day outdoors.
