As the gateway to the Thar Desert, Suryagarh is resplendent in ochre stone and blends beautifully with its scorched surroundings. The havelis are intimate stand-alone suites with traditional features, while the Signature, Luxury and Suryagarh suites range from lavish to intimate in scale, like worlds within themselves.
Suryagarh is all about the good life: here you could play billiards all day and pause only for a spa treatment or a cocktail mid-afternoon. The fitness centre is as gloriously appointed as the rest of the hotel, while the indoor pool is a glittering vivid blue reminiscent of the native peacocks. Activities on offer range from Silk Road and temple explorations to driving the Chudail Trail, and after a busy day of living like a Maharaja, however relaxing or energetic you choose it to be, you can kick back with a refreshing beverage and sample the delights of the kitchen, whether that's indoors in a venue of your choosing or out in the desert dunes.
