The Mountbatten Lodge Ranakpur opened its doors to guests in October 2014. The owner Reggie Singh the grandson of Maharaj Ratan Singh of Jodhpur – known for his Polo and Shikar exploits has always had a passion for Safaris and the outdoors. It’s been his endeavor to recreate the past, the colonial times and the days of The Raj. He would like to give his guests an experience of the `real thing’- nothing recreated or cosmetic. You will notice the same on the menus, safari, service and also the ambiance. Most of the staff belongs to his clan – The Rathores who established Jodhpur in the year 1459. They have a responsibility towards them. Though uneducated , they are proud people and you can see their desire to please. Also to provide employment for the local tribal’s, all the construction work of the Lodge has been done by them.
The Mountbatten Lodge, Ranakpur shares its boundary with The Kumbalgarh wildlife sanctuary and can boast of having two of the most important historical sights of the country at its backdoor- the famous Ranakpur Jain Temples and The Kumbalgarh Fort (famous for having the second longest wall after the great wall of china). The Lodge is an exclusive 4 suite property in a stunning location. It is definitely a 2 night destination for guests staying in Udaipur or driving between Jodhpur and Udaipur. Here one can take a safari or do a trek to The Ranakpur Temples or The Kumbalgarh Fort. Picnic Lunches, Mobile Leopard safaris, 3 Night Mobile Horse safaris, Champagne sunsets either by Elephants or Horse along with a tribal village visit can also be organized. Day trip Safari Lunches from Udaipur can also be done here as the Lodge is only 80 kms away(an hour and a half drive).
