Mihir Garh

Mihir Garh, or “Fort of the Sun” as it is known, stands majestically like an opulent sandcastle in the Indian desert. This nine suite palatial boutique hotel has been named the most extraordinary place to stay by the editors of Lonely Planet.

Mihir Garh

Oasis in the Thar Desert

The Mihir Garh hotel reflects the lifestyle of the maharajas and is situated atop a sand dune dedicated to the warrior god. The castle-like structure took two years to build with its sculpted ramparts, artisan-crafted mud walls, and the village women of Khandi and Jaji have loving crafted fireplaces fashioned in local tradition using dung and clay.

“Few hotels are created without compromise; Mihir Garh is a rare example. This is not just a unique place to stay; it’s a shrine to the artistic and architectural traditions of Rajasthan in general and Jodhpur in particular.” – James Kay

Mihir Garh Suite

Accommodations

The Mihir Garh suites are each more than 1700 sq. ft. of opulent luxury. They feature comfortable, stylish furnishing from the Jodhpur region, and offer private terraces, courtyards, plunge pools, and an open-air Jacuzzi that call visitors to relax and indulge.

Everything from the curtain holders to the paintings on the walls have been designed specifically for Mihir Garh.

Suites are equipped with a personal mini bar that offers exotic drinks perfect to refresh on a sultry summer afternoon, or the suite’s fireplace stands ready to warm your room on a winter night.

Other modern amenities include TVs, DVDs, and coffee makers. And for those ready to take their pampering to the next level, the Mihir Garh Tulsi Spa stands ready to make your wish come true.

Equestrian Program

The hotel’s equestrian program offers a nice touch for horse and nature lovers. This program features and ancient breed of indigenous horses, the Marwari breed, which is known for their sense of strength and freedom as you ride across the vast desert wilderness.

It’s an ideal opportunity to take in all nature has to offer from the graceful antelope of India to multi-hued birds. The equestrian program offers opportunities for a three and four day riding itinerary with overnight stays in a mobile camp. No matter what ride you choose it will be designed to bring you maximum pleasure.
