Mihir Gargh

Boutique hotel in the Thar Desert

Modern facilities in a region full of ancient traditions. Stylish décor in a rugged and barren landscape. The contrasts between the Mihir Gargh boutique hotel and its surroundings, the Thar Desert in Rajasthan,are extreme. Nevertheless, the combination is perfect, because the fort and its surroundings reinforce each other so that guests of both get the best.

Out of nowhere, this fortress looms in the vast desert landscape. The nine suites are fully decorated according to the local style. The local population has therefore cooperated fully. Men built the high walls with many arches and alcoves. Women from the nearby villages of Khandi and Haji made fireplaces: according to the traditional techniques of cow poo and clay that they also use in their own homes. The interior comes entirely from the Jodhpur region and finally Mihir Gargh has also taken over the hospitality characteristic of this region.
