Mountbatten Lodge
Ranakpur

Located high in the Aravalli hills, this luxurious lodge is an exclusive 4 suite property, ideally situated just a stone’s throw away from two of North India’s significant historical sites: the Kumbhalgarh Fort and the Ranakpur Jain Temples.

Evoking a sense of deep-rooted colonial times, this peaceful retreat transports its guests back to the days of The Raj thanks to its architecture and elegant interior design that have been thoughtfully-designed by its owner, Reggie Singh, to pay homage to the history and heritage of the property. Contemporary twists have been added throughout the hotel in a subtle manner; our favourite feature has to be the unusually-shaped, triangular swimming pool, which provides the ideal spot to relax and take a refreshing dip.

Dining at this lodge is a treat as it is all beautifully presented, and guests can choose between an array of cuisines, from local Indian delicacies to more international dishes, and we have not even mentioned the drinks: we guarantee you will enjoy their Bloody Marys here!

Exhilarating safaris can be enjoyed at Mountbatten Lodge (either by jeep, on horses or even elephants), as can interesting outings exploring the natural surroundings, which are are bound to be highlights of a stay here. You have the chance to catch glimpses of leopards, bears and deer, as well as a whole host of bird life in the nearby Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary. Also, we recommend visiting one of the many local tribal villages and relaxing at sunset with a chilled glass of champagne during a stay here – just bliss.

Interconnecting suites mean that families can stay comfortably here, but this guest house is perhaps better suited to couples after a romantic break in rural India. Guests at Mountbatten Lodge are not only guaranteed the highest level of personal service but are also sure to experience a unique Rajasthani experience, harking back to the begone Kipling-era 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
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
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
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
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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
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!
