Rohet Garh is a historical village located near the town of Jodhpur in the semi-desert region of Rajasthan. The Rohet countryside is marked by the arid plains and the vegetation mainly includes bushes and thorn trees. Rohetgarh was awarded to Thakur Dalpat Singh I for his excellent contribution in the military campaigns under the Rathores. Rohet became one of the most important Jagirs (fiefdoms) of the state of Marwar. Founded in 1622, this beautiful property is still in the hands of the descendants of Thakur Dalpat Singh who also live in a part of the property and take care of each guest personally. The generations of valiant nobles have built this heritage house where, despite the breakthroughs of modernity, aristocratic values are respected.

Even in the state of Rajasthan known for its royal, historical and luxury destinations, Rohetgarh is positioned a class apart. Initially a fortified mansion, Rohet castle has been converted into a heritage hotel. It has only 34 rooms at maximum luxury, adding to the feel of the holiday in the company and hospitality of the close relatives of the erstwhile nobles, living in a part of the precinct. The thirty-four rooms in Rohetgarh are luxuriously appointed. Each room has a different vantage point. The rooms have frescoes that differentiate them.

Rohetgarh also has a desert field with six fancy camps, sitting atop a comfortable sand dune. The attached bathrooms in the camps make it absolutely special with hot and cold water, toilets and proper wash basins. Sit back, enjoy the sun and sunbathe or watch the stars in a quiet night.
