Mihir Garh, Rajasthan

This intimate boutique hotel, also known as ‘The Sun Fortress’, lies on the edge of the desert and offers nine suites, giving you a truly private feel. The ancient and traditional methods of building are balanced elegantly through contemporary interiors.


Dramatically sat on a sand dune on the desert’s perimeter, Mihir Garh is located around a rustic desert wilderness just south of Jodhpur. The hotel has been constructed using ancient techniques and materials such as wattle, mud and wood.

Your room

Each incredibly spacious, airy and equipped with all mod cons, suites contain a large bathroom with separate baths and showers. The ground floor suites have private courtyards and plunge pools, whilst the first floor suites offer private terraces where you embrace the unspoiled and enchanting desert panorama.

Why we like it

Mihir Garh is owned by one of the keenest horsemen in Rajasthan, making it an ideal base for riding beautiful Marwari horses. The hotel provides fantastic horseback safaris through the desert, allowing you to race into this sandy jungle and really get a feel for the culture as well as meeting some friendly locals along the way.
