Bujera Fort
Udaipur

Located just outside one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Bujera Fort is a charming fortress in Rajasthan’s Aravali hills, on the west side of Lake Pichola. Although it has been newly built, there is a feeling about the property that it has been around for centuries.

Six years in the making, British owners Trish McFarlane and interior designer Richard Hanlon have created a stylish and sophisticated luxurious retreat, steeped in old-world charm and character, just 15 minutes from Udaipur and forty minutes from Udaipur airport. Constructed with hand-carved stone columns and salvaged vintage window frames and doors, the property comprises the main Bujera Fort building (with two master suites and five cloister bedrooms) and two smaller houses, Bujera House (with four bedrooms) and Bujera Bungalow (with four bedrooms), which can be booked separately as self-contained units. With a home-from-home atmosphere the bedrooms combine the feel of an English country house with classic fabric patterns, interspersed with Indian antiques.

Built on two levels, this blushing pale pink fortress is set around beautiful flower filled Mogul gardens with cloistered lawns, charming courtyards, glistening fountains, a heated swimming pool and plunge pools. This property has the makings of a magical home-from-home in a heavenly location with views overlooking Udaipur, Lake Pichola the City Palace, the Lake Palace, the Monsoon Palace and Fateh Garh Castle.

Inside there is a library and a games table, with a working fireplace for colder winter evenings. There is also a drawing room with a grand piano, and a breakfast room for dining when the weather is fresh. Meals are served in the dining pavilion and private dining for special occasions can also be arranged. Enjoy parties in the outdoor pavilions or in the drawing room with its baby grand piano, snuggle up by the several working fireplaces and enjoy home-cooked food using freshly grown ingredients from their organic garden.

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
