ABOUT THE PROPERTY

Located about 8kms away from the iconic Lake , Fateh Garh is one of the very few heritage renaissance properties in India—a term used to describe the laborious process of moving a heritage property, brick by brick to a new location and setting up a completely new structure. The Kelwa family, the owners of the luxury hotel who also happen to reside within the majestic property, work extensively towards a holistic and sustainable world. The hotel complex has been built entirely by the local villagers and the Kelwa family continues to employ solely the villagers to run the hotel; all this while not compromising on the luxury even a tad bit. The 48-room property is laden with all modern facilities including an infinity pool worth dying for, spa, Jacuzzi and a super-impressive spa that had us going weak in our knees. The rooms are all designed using natural fabrics, are intricately furnished, extremely spacious and the scintillating views of the city just act as the cherry on top of the cake.
