Dadhikar Fort: A tryst with history

I wanted some change for my birthday. So we decided to go to Dadhikar Fort in Alwar district. This heritage hotel located in Aravali hills seemed like the perfect getaway for a short trip.

The warm welcome

We were received cordially by the hotel staff and shown our rooms. The hotel entrance opens into a courtyard with rooms along its periphery. A narrow lane from this courtyard leads you to a terrace which is set nicely along a hill.

The luxury accommodation

There are some rooms on the opposite end of the lane. Every room here has a different feel to it. While some rooms give you a lavish feel, others give you the feel of living like a General of the king’s army in a military camp. One room I really found interesting was Malay. This room is located in the turret and you have to climb down a flight of stairs to reach the seating area. There are a number of small ventilators besides the bed that provide a neat rustic feeling. However, this room might not be perfect for claustrophobic people.

The folk culture at a glance

The hotel staff organized a cultural program for us in the evening with some folk music and dance performances. This was organized on the hotel terrace and all of us enjoyed a small dance ourselves as well. The program was capped by a scintillating fire performance by a troupe member. That performance held us spellbound.

The cultural program was followed by a nice Rajasthani dinner in the restaurant downstairs. Though there wasn’t much variety, but the food was delicious. After a light dinner, we started our drinking session on the terrace and the staff was cooperative. Some drunk discussions took us deep into the night which resulted in all of us missing our breakfast. Weirdly enough, they were unable to provide us with some Ala Carte food after we had missed our breakfast. Starving, we left the hotel around 12:30 pm consuming lunch at a highway dhaba.
