Mihir Garh
Rohet

Top 10s logo 

Mihir Garh is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Venues for a Wedding or Party

Situated on a sand mound in the middle of the Thar desert, Mihir Garh literally means the 'Fort of the Sun'. This special boutique hotel is a dazzling beacon in the sandy wilderness, with its spacious suites, private plunge pools and exceptional wildlife encounters.

West of the village of Khandi, Mihir Garh is one of India's first luxury edge-of-desert resorts and is surrounded by scrub farmland and designed by the Rohet family who still run it today. The building is a traditional design, and is constructed out of wattle, mud and wood and has a wonderful rustic look whilst being supremely comfortable.

Mihir Garh provides a haven of desert comfort, the nine air-conditioned suites blend in seamlessly with the golden and sandy colours of the desert, and each suite offers more than 1,700 square feet of private space, including private terraces to sleep under the stars, plunge pools, private courtyards and exclusive open-air Jacuzzis. The suites are named Alishan and Shandar, after the fine Marwari Stallions from the Rohet Stables. The colours and fabrics which have been used for the interiors are soft and understated, in keeping with the earthy, desert, theme which runs through the hotel, and there are hand-crafted fireplaces created by women from neighbouring villages.

The hotel also comprises an outdoor swimming pool and a barbeque terrace, as well as a spa (but no gym) and a dining room. The Vilasa Spa comprises two treatment rooms and offers a diverse menu of therapies ensuring the ultimate luxury experience in the midst of the Thar desert.

The idea behind the camp is to give people a genuinely authentic desert experience, it is a fabulous location for riding safaris, as well as picnics and excursions and camel safaris through the ethereal desert. The Rohet family are amongst the best and keenest horsemen in Rajasthan and boast some of the finest horses in their stables.

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
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
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
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
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
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
