Mountbatten Lodge is a colonial style luxury retreat located midway between Udaipur and Jodhpur in Rajasthan. With just four comfortable suites designed in a pseudo-colonial style, this intimate lodge is an ideal way to get into the Indian countryside. The 4 suites are large and have four-poster beds, private terraces and huge bathrooms with modern showers and sunken bathtubs, which no doubt memsahib will thoroughly enjoy. Two of the suites have private plunge pools whilst the other two share a small pool (and interconnect for families). Have lunch under a 400-year old Banayan Tree, visit the surrounding rural villages or go for a champagne sundowner in the hills, you’re guaranteed to have the experience of a lifetime, that you cannot have anywhere else in the world! Although Mountbatten Lodge is a destination on its own, it spoils you with a variety of activities – riding, sunset safaris, leopard tracking and treks to Kumbalgarh! However, cherry on the cake is the Jazz session at the bar that you will come away with and come back for.
