All Neemrana properties are non–hotel Hotels, because they were originally built for other purposes. All efforts have been made to maintain the old charm of The Tower House while ensuring more than the basic comforts that have come to be associated with the changes in lifestyle since the 17th century. The Tower House offers a unique experience of seeing and ‘living’ history along with a range of local excursions that help our guests unwind and rediscover themselves. Nothing about the Neemrana experience is ordinary. Walk out to the ancient Chinese fishing nets to experience how lanterns are used to attract and catch the fish at night. The Tower House also hosts anniversaries, birthdays and other memorable occasions.
