Travel Guide to Neemrana Hotels properties in Alwar, Rajasthan | How to choose the best fit Neemrana Hotels property in Alwar for your easy getaway from Delhi-NCR

Neemrana Hotels is widely popular for providing a non-hotel hotel experience combining the off-beat heritage with culture and laid back yet warm hospitality. The Neemrana Fort Palace in Neemrana, Alwar, Rajasthan has become an iconic property internationally for travellers visiting India, particularly Rajasthan. I have had the pleasure of spending time at all 3 of the Neemrana hotels properties in Alwar, Rajasthan :- (1) Neemrana Fort Palace (2) Kesroli Hill Fort (3) Tijara Fort Palace, and I would have to say that though, overall, all of these properties offer the ‘Neemrana’ experience, each one also has its distinctive charm. A lot of my friends and readers have asked me individually about which property to choose while planning a getaway from Delhi. I thought it best to share the various queries as well as points in a Q&A form.

Alwar Monsoon Travel Guide | Quick Getaways from Delhi – NCR

Alwar district in Rajasthan is so close to Delhi/NCR and yet a whole different world away. The rugged ancient mountain range Aravallis cover significant parts of the district and there are a smattering of forts, palaces, temples and farmlands. The monsoons transform the landscape of the aravallis, when the flora literally bloom out, turning the rugged brown mountain ranges into verdant green all around. We have done interesting long weekend getaways from Delhi to different destinations in Alwar and thought to share the interesting monsoon travel guide to Alwar for all our readers in this post.

  • Neemrana Fort Palace - It is the most famous luxury heritage property in Alwar. Located in Neemrana, Alwar and run by Neemrana Hotels, this all year round luxury property is a dreamy place in monsoons. One can spend hours gazing at  the clouds and green landscape all around from the different vantage points, lounge in the pool or just spend time lazing around the palace in the various nooks & corners.
