Mihir Garh referred to as ‘Fort of the Sun’ is a unique Boutique Hotel located in the vast expanse of the Thar Desert in Jodhpur. Named as the world’s most extraordinary hotel by Lonely Planet, this exquisite property is described by Parnashree Devi in her travel diary as “nothing less than a dream.”

With just 9 exclusive suites the desert hotel has been aesthetically designed for the leisure of the guests and has everything that one could ask for. It has enough space for private courtyards, fireplaces, terrace, plunge pools, Jacuzzi, and sitting area. In addition, the guests enjoy an “uncompromising royal hospitality” as shared by Parnashree in her travel diary.

Exclusive Elements

Sharing her experience of staying at Mihir Garh, Parnashree says “everything was exclusive there”. The boutique hotel is beautifully designed with elements like “mud-painted walls, stylish furnishing, intricately carved wooden ceiling, color-coordinated cushions”, and so on.

Besides, the art pieces in the room including pen stand and the magazine holder reflect the owner’s love for horses. Talking about her morning experience she explains how she enjoyed having tea in a “sun-drenched private terrace” and “breakfast by the pool” with “splendid views” from the table.

Village Safari

With an aim to get a closer look at the village life, Parnashree went on a village safari where she met a Bishnoi family. The Bishnois are nature lovers and environmentalists who prefer to have a lifestyle signified by mud houses and traditional kitchens.

Royal Picnic

Driving through the desert land, Parnashree was welcomed to the “exclusively set up ornate tent next to a lake”. There was a proper sitting arrangement under the tree and Rajasthani cuisines were presented under the pitched tent.

Shikar Dinner

The Shikar Dinner is an exclusive experience of staying at Mihir Garh that will take you back to the hunting days of Maharajas. A “camel cart led by a man with a lantern”, made way to the location where Parnashree was welcomed with “performances by the Kalbalia dancers”. The dining set-up had the “whole area lit up” and the experience of having dinner in the middle of the vast desert is what Parnashree calls the “best take away” from the Mihir Garh trip.
