If you’ve ever envisioned living in a 14th Century Fort, a trip to Kesroli Hill Fort for a much needed rest and relax weekend is the ultimate getaway. It is a short drive for those who are living in and around Delhi making it the perfect getaway for those long weekends or short holidays. If you have a weekend to spare, Kesroli Hill Fort is a great way to spend some vacation time away from the hustle and bustle of Delhi and get yourself recharged.  It is also the perfect place to stay if you are planning a trip to Rajasthan and want to do halts in between other cities.

The best way to enjoy this property is to gaze out at the endless fields of farming below the fort walls. Find nooks and areas for you to sit and enjoy a book. Spend the day lazing and enjoying yourself in their beautiful pool.  It is a smaller property so it is best not to expect that there will be loads of activities to do in the property itself. Don’t expect day long expedition walks like the Neemrana Palace property. This is a far smaller property and is ideal for those who want to enjoy a heritage property and just spend the day relaxing. Small by no means depicts lower quality. Unlike their other bigger properties, Kesroli Hill Fort has personalized hospitality. The staff are friendly and they are keen to interact and to ensure you have a great stay.

Kesroli Hill Fort located in Alwar is a 14th century fort managed by the Neemrana Group. It is the oldest habitual heritage site in India. Unlike their other properties like Neemrana Fort Palace and Tijara Fort, Kesroli Hill Fort is far smaller and a more personalized property. Their food spread is pretty tasty and has a very fresh taste to it. We enjoyed our day sitting by the pool, eating and reading. This property doesn’t feel crowded even when it is booked up, which to us was a bonus because it meant we had a rather peaceful and quiet stay.

The best time to visit Kesroli Hill Fort would be in the warmer seasons such as February onward before the cold sets in around October/November. Reason being, I don’t see how you’d spend your time here without accessing the gorgeous pool that they have. Winters and monsoon will leave you feeling slightly bored with the lack of activities here.

There are a few places of attraction in Alwar that you can choose to visit if you happen to be here for a few days. You can opt to go see the Siliserh Lake (27km), Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary (50kms) and the Alwar Fort (22km).

If you’re headed to Jaipur after your stay in Kesroli Hill Fort and you aren’t faint hearted, you might want to add Bhangarh Fort to your list of places to visit. You will only be able to access the area between 6am to 6pm. Bhangarh Fort is listed as the most haunted place in India and is located approximately 90 kilometers from Kesroli Hill Fort.
