Ratan Vilas on the outskirts of the city of Jodhpur is an informal guesthouse which seeps of Polo memorabilia. Owned by a family whose love for Polo couldn’t be more evident, the Villa transforms us into a time forgotten by many and takes us through the intricacies of the sport that is popular amongst the Royal’s of Rajasthan. Housing various intricate and fascinating pieces of furniture and antiques that are still in perfect condition, Ratan Vilas is like a museum in itself.
The villa just consists of fifteen rooms which are decorated lovingly with comfort as a great priority. Each room contains AC and attached bathrooms and overlooks a lush courtyard that contains easy-chairs to soak in the sun or laze in the shade. The pool serves as a refreshing break after a hot and humid day of sightseeing in the city. Though there isn’t a demarcated dining area, the hospitable staff serves breakfast in the beautiful courtyard and other meals are arranged upon request. The guesthouse offers spectacular accommodation and facilities, and is a must visit for polo enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts alike.
