It is not a mirage, shimmering over the desert dunes, but it is a dream. The dream of its owners who – inspired by the ethereal beauty of a sacred setting dedicated to the warrior God – created a haven called Mihir Garh. The name means ‘Fortress of the Sun’ but this fort wasn’t built to repel invaders. It has been beautifully designed and lavishly decorated with the sole intention of welcoming guests – especially honeymooners – to a unique combination of luxury and romance.

So you’ll find your suite is openly opulent, and very spacious. It will indulge you with intimate alcoves, large lounging and sitting areas, a private terrace or balcony patio giving you sweeping views over the romantic desert dunes – and even your own plunge pool or Jacuzzi.
