Mundota Hilltop War Fort: A unique holiday in the Aravallis

Mundota Hilltop War Fort: A unique holiday in the Aravallis

The much-awaited Mundota Hilltop War Fort will finally open its gates, exclusively to FABgetaways members on September 15, 2020. For the entire month of September, the property will only take bookings directly from FABgetaways, which means fewer people, more attention and complete privacy! For those who like to keep their vacations exclusive and private, book this deal to head on over to Mundota where it awaits.

The Mudota Hilltop Warfort is less of a sojourn and more of an experience. The 5-star retreat sits atop a hill in the Aravalli ranges, just 25 km away from the city of Jaipur, overlooking the rough terrains, villages and a palace that surround it.



Mundota Hilltop War Fort was originally built in the early 14th-century and served as one of the first lines of defence for Jaipur. It has withstood many battles and the test of time, and after years of being abandoned, has now been transformed into a magnificent retreat after seven years of intensive restoration.

Currently owned by the 20th generation of the Mundota family, the fort still retains many of its original features like the structures and style which, when combined with the luxury of modern conveniences, makes for a sojourn that is one-of-a-kind!


The suites at Mundota Hilltop War Fort are not your run-of-the-mill hotel room, given that this was originally built as a strategic fort and not as a residence. Furnished with traditional rugs, timeless furniture and decor that perfectly complements the space, the 5 suites at the fort are each uniquely designed.

The suites here are ridiculously massive, in that their sizes range from an imposing 111 sq.m. to an incredible 167 sq.m. Each of them features its own private terrace, indoor and outdoor dining area, either a plunge pool or a jacuzzi and wide windows that give you panoramic views of the sunset, the valley, the sand dunes or the palace.

It goes without saying, Mundota Hilltop War Fort’s suites are built and designed to impress, and to offer you an accommodation experience like none other!


A stay at this spectacular retreat is not complete without indulging in the experiences offered by the hosts.

The Mundota family has their own private polo grounds with 50 imported polo horses. Here, guests can revel in a number of activities such as horse riding, horse grooming and even a game of polo. 

For those that love exploring, the hosts offer horse safaris, trekking in the Aravallis, village visits, heritage walks, camping trips, farmland tours, artisanal tours, and salt mining visits to Sambhar.

People who live for thrill will also find their stay at this 5-star retreat quite exhilarating. From cycle polo to paramotoring to jeep safaris through the dunes, guests have a plethora of exciting options to choose from.

But that’s not all. The retreat also offers a variety of choices for those who love to just kick back, relax and unwind. Be it enjoying sundowners on the dunes or by its rock-cut pool, a hilltop picnic, sunrise yoga or kite flying, guests who are looking forward to a reposeful holiday will love a getaway at Mundota Hilltop War Fort.

It's safe to say, this retreat has something to offer to every kind of traveller, be it an adventure seeker, a leisure traveller, or even the experiential travel enthusiast.


At Mundota, no meal is just a simple meal. From meals that are prepared using ingredients straight from the retreat’s farm to signature outdoor dining experiences, the resort offers you a taste of both goodness and utter bliss! You also have the option to dine in the comfort of your own room or even in the restaurant at the palace.

One thing is for sure, dining at Mundota Hilltop War Fort is an experience in itself that adds to your holiday and makes it even better!


If you’ve started imagining yourself laying on one of the daybeds by Mundota Hilltop War Fort’s rock-cut pool, sipping on a glass of champagne, you are!
