Not too long ago, Shikarbadi was the exclusive preserve of the Royal Family of Mewar.
Today, you can soak in the sun and enjoy breathtaking views of rolling Aravalli hills, as spotted deer, Neelgai, wild boar, peacocks, and migratory birds make their way to the waterfront. The lake draws them for their daily sustenance, and their feeding time is a delight for the guests.
All suites and rooms face the deer park, and have spectacular views of the surrounding sanctuary and hills. The luxurious interiors and beautiful old miniatures of royal hunts transport you to another era.
Unique to it, the hotel has a private airstrip, a stud farm breeding some of the best Marwari horses in the country and a cricket ground. Shikarbadi covers an impressive 250 acres.
