Christmas holidays in Nature
on Dec 26, 2017
I recently visited this property with my family and stayed for two nights here. First day in the Tree House and second day in The Water Cottages. In water cottages, the waterfall and the infinity pool as well as the walkways are just amazing and anyone can spend all their time just sitting there and relaxing. One feels very close to nature. The mini falls and the art work is also amazing and very refreshing.
The Tree House is also very good and true to its word in every sense as it sits on top of a real tree with branches running through the rooms. The flora and fauna both add to the awesome feeling of living in the wild.
The best part about the dinner is the lovely open air romantically lit area with bonfire make you feel really happy. There was also a nice surprise as the evening was filled with nice cozy live music and a real life Santa who was giving chocolates to everybody on Christmas Eve. I must say that the waiters and the housekeeping staff both are very cooperating and go all out to make you comfortable. The GM of the resort is very courteous and he and his team ensure that you have a very warm and comfortable stay there.
Overall I am very impressed with the property and would definitely recommend the same to all those who want to have a break from their busy city life and want to spend a worth weekend with their family.
A unique but highly overpriced experience
on Dec 25, 2017
We paid INR 25K per night for a room which is a bit overpriced. Rooms were unique as they are built on trees and have branches sprouting through the rooms but thats it!
Food spread for all meals was great and their Indian fare is faultless - jungle maas, idli vada, sambhar, rabri however western fare such as scrambled eggs (pathetic) and pancakes werent upto the mark.
They offer activities such as archery, badminton, cycles which was great. Live band in the evening is only till ten pm and was great experience.
One positive is their EXTREMELY friendly, pleasing and accomodating staff. They went out of their way to help us.
Their beds are extremely comfortable and we were three girl friends and had a very sound sleep with no need for extra mattress.
Word of caution- i m dead scared of lizards and we spotted 2 of them in our rooms. Staff got them out for us but this is one reason, i wouldnt go back to tree house resort. But if you are used to house lizards, try out this place.
If you are planning to visit Jaipur city during your stay, just be aware that its 50km drive.
Extremely over priced & over hyped

This resort came recommended by a relative and we weren't sure about it, but the positive reviews everywhere really convinced us. The price we paid (although it was peak season) was close to Rs. 25,000 a night per room. This included all 3 meals so we thought it was a good deal for a luxury hotel.
Upon arrival, the place seemed nice. Fairly open and the rooms were made into the trees. Conceptually this place was quite lovely. However, I think what they lacked in a big way is luxury and being able to cater to a wide audience. I'll list out the cons first and then the pros below:
Coffee!: We wanted a cup of coffee after our drive, and they said they only had Nescafe, no option for fresh coffee. A place that charges this high a fee, cannot not have a decent cup of coffee!
Hot water: The temperature was 8 degrees in the morning, but there is very limited supple of hot water in the shower. You can either soap or shampoo!
Extra Duvet: The rooms do have heaters, but in spite of that we were so cold and requested an extra duvet at bedtime. It came an hour later after multiple reminders and only two out of three members got it as they had run out! The other rooms were even halfway occupied, so I couldn't understand why they would run out.
Food: The food that was included in the tariff was basically a buffet spread with very limited options. It was mainly a north indian menu which was pretty good but if you have allergies or specific food requirements (which my mother did) there's not much you can do. Another example: I asked for scrambled eggs for breakfast (they had eggs to order) and the chef was unable to make an edible version of it! That's a really basic request for a hotel that charges me 25k a night!
Decor: This is of course very subjective to individual taste, but for a luxury resort, I found the decor very basic and aesthetically displeasing. Even though this is a nature resort, the greenery is not very looked after, so the landscaping looks very rugged and not polished.
The wait staff: The waiters around the restaurants were truly trying their best to help us with our food requirements, but I don't think their kitchens are equipped to an a la carte request even though the option is there.
Nature: It's away from the city and in the middle of nowhere. We wanted a quiet getaway which it gave us.
I'm afraid I don't have too many good things to say. I've previously paid the same tariff as this to a Raas, Jodhpur or a Taj property and the hospitality and luxury cannot be compared! I would have had a much better review of this resort if the tariff was half of what I was charged. Not worth the money in my opinion.

We were a group of 9 couples who visited this stunning resort in December.
Well Maintained and the most hospitable staff, especially Mr. Kamdar, who entertained all our calls and went all out to make our stay comfortable.
The chef Mr. Girish who was always accommodating and gave us the most scrumptious meals. Would always take out the time to discuss the menu since we were a big group.
Overall the rooms were clean and well apart so got a lot of privacy.
Perfect holiday for us.
