We always look for inspiration and for me that inspiration comes from travel. Exploring new places, widening my horizons & enjoying different culture makes me feel happy. This time Jodhpur was on my cards & I greeted myself with luxury home stay at The Almond Tree.
The Almond tree is a luxurious mansion amidst the blue city Jodhpur. It is set among-st the glorious foothills of Umaid Bhawan Palace. Surrounded by soothing & serene green neighborhood which gives it a cool atmosphere. It offers the traveler style, privacy, culture, tranquility & serenity. Just beside the historic Umaid bhawan gives the place a royal touch. When you talk about luxury and looking for a sweet luxurious home-stay, The Almond tree should be your first preference. The place is easily accessible via Air, Rail & Road. It’s just 5-kms(10 mins) from Jodhpur Airport & 6-7-kms(15 mins) from the main bus stop. When you talk about the vicinity, it’s an Army Cantt Area always guarded and protected by the force & just 10-15 mins walking distance from the Umaid Bhawan Palace.
This is something which enriches the beauty of the place and indeed the Almond tree excels in this department. Loved how they have blended different cultures and made the place look outstanding. The use of different colors to make the place look vibrant yet classy. From the usage of proper furniture in the rooms to the use of vintage wood showpiece. Check out the images to see the vintage side of this place.
The Almond tree has 8 luxurious bedrooms. The unique thing about the rooms are that they are named after the names of flowers which grows within or around the premises. Each room had its own peculiarity & color. Rooms were divided into different categories The Suites, Superior rooms and Deluxe Rooms. Except Deluxe every room had a king sized bathroom.
The Suites- Bougainvillea, Dahlia & Marigold.
Superior rooms Jasmine & Sunflower.
Deluxe rooms Champa, Roheda & Gulmohar.

The hospitality at The Almond Tree was just flawless. The services where available 24×7. The staff was friendly, coordinating and helping. They always saw that our hunger was met with the most delicious food. The cleanliness was maintained in a proper manner with regular interval checks for cleaning. All the meals were served at proper time. They even served us in our rooms. Being a home stay never expected the staff to be in the same customized t-shirts. The services offered made the luxury home-stay more pleasant.
The owner Mr. Chetan was one of the best host I ever came across. He made us feel homely and helped us make our city tour more pleasant. He provided us the airport transfer as well.
This is something which is not my forte but thought of going off my diet for few days. We were served all different cuisines on all our meals. I must say their chef had that magic in his hand. First of to start with the breakfast, it covered all the vital nourishment things which includes a different type of flakes, peanut butter, brown breads, etc. Special healthy breakfast on request was available. Cuisines that were served included Gujarati, Punjabi, Italian & the best one- Rajasthani.
The yummiest thing about the food were the toasted brown bread mayonnaise sandwiches. They had their hotel menu which included food items such as my favorite oats porridge, paneer tikka masala, etc. Oats porridge is something I was just hogging on to and couldn’t resist myself. We were served cold coffee, green tea, black coffee whenever we asked for. Eating regimen Coke and appetizers were our stress buster to beat the warmth. Deserts were an add-on for us.
They specialized in almost all the cuisines with Rajasthani being the best. The food was served with the best presentation and the quality was top-notch. At The Almond tree they have 24-seater air-conditioned restaurant & tea/coffee maker in all the rooms. The feeling of luxury was re-defined for me.
When you talk about amenities the thing which attracted me the most was the Jacuzzi. The bubbling was so pleasant and blissful that it made me not leave the Jacuzzi. The roof top dining made me go crazy about that place. The garden at the roof top was my favorite place to chill. It’s a one storey bungalow with architecture that is just eye catchy. They have a huge lawn space where you can do different activities. Reminisced my childhood days after having great time bicycling. There was even an elevator & chairs for disabled.
My experience at The Almond tree was just stupendous. Love how luxury home stay be so relaxing & lovely. I miss every minute I spent over there as was totally into that place. Words are short to explain the exquisite beauty of this place. If you’re looking for stay in Jodhpur with homely feeling then The Almond tree is the perfect place.
