1. Neemrana Fort Palace

While most heritage resorts near Delhi are born with the beauty and treasures of history, Neemrana Fort Palace offers a vibrant site for magical weekend getaways, feasts, celebrations, and conferences. The fort is huge, mammoth, spread along side a hillock. At night, the fort wears a garland of lights that gives a great view of the contour of the fort. Seven palace wings built over 14 layers tiered into a hill across 2.5 hectares/ 6 acres of garden-palace, make Neemrana Fort-Palace one of the unique resorts near Delhi. Hanging gardens, two pools to swim out to the horizon, an Ayurvedic spa, and India’s first zip-line is what the world comes to experience. A Great place to indulge in History. It’s a real Fort feeling with all modern facilities in place.The evenings here are quite lit because of local Rajasthani Music and Dance performances.
