Last December we embarked on an adventurous trip to Alwar. A trip one of its kind undertaken by two unchaperoned, middle aged ladies, with the ambitious project of seeking a ‘feel’  of the paranormal at the Bhangarh Fort, approximately 56 Kms. from Alwar, infamous for being haunted.

However, the hauntings proved lukewarm and lacking. But while with the snooper’s cap on, we made it to the exotic heritage hotel in Dadhikar – a ruined fort turned into a luxurious and enchanting haven amidst Nature’s bounties and serene splendour.

At The Entrance Of The Fort

Dadhikar epitomizes entrepreneurship at its best. Ram Kaushik, the owner of the property, has singlehandedly revamped the entire structure to revive back the glory of the bygone era. The idea is to give the non-residential visitors and in-house guests a taste of royalty – a chance to rejuvenate tired body and mind in real regal extravagance.

The most wondrous thing is how meticulously and painstakingly the atmosphere of the Fort has been rebuilt by dramatically juxtaposing modern amenities with antique artifacts. We were not allowed to click inside the rooms. However, you can get a wide coverage of the premise in terms of décor, ambiance, location etc. if you take pains to visit their official website :

    Hearty thanks for posting. Well, a complete review of this hotel must come from your pen. If the tariff is not very high, I would like to patron this hotel only upon visiting the city.

    I never knew of such an exotic and exciting place. Forts and palaces are converted into hotels,but to retain the old world charm and rustic beauty as this place does calls for some effort.The pictures spoke much about the place tempting tourists to visit.
