Mihir Garh

One of nine lavishly-appointed suites at Mihir Garh in Rajasthan, India

Privacy is the defining word for Mihir Garh. A contemporary castle fortress that feels as if it has risen from the sand that surrounds it, this exclusive hotel has just nine suites, each with more than 1,700 square feet of space. Individual terraces, courtyards, plunge pools, Jacuzzis and traditional fireplaces hand-crafted by local village women enjoy a lavish setting amid jewel-toned furnishings selected to reflect the region's regal heritage. Far from the madding crowds, you will have the chance to savor one another's company as you embark on a village safari, luxuriate in spa treatments, explore the countryside on horseback or linger over a lakeside picnic in your own specially designed tent.
