    What to add to the already glowing reports. The wonderful feedback given? It is the poetry, the love story behind the pink pillars shipped over from India. The statement of “we can do this together”, not just materialising long held dreams. What an inspirational story, what an inspirational couple, family, you are. We salute you Indian style Namaste Cliff and Susan. It was a privilege to spend a week in your palace of dreams feeling loved and cared for in an exquisite way from our house to yours thank you for all your generosity.

    6 star retreat!!!

    Driving through the gates, we had no idea of the opulence, style, luxury & comfort that awaited us within the walls of the majestic Jodha Bai Retreat. The warmth and hospitality of Cliff and Susan, made me feel I was returning home to family. The love and care taken to build this retreat, embarks from every corner and every little detail he discover during your stay. The suite was majestic and opulent, with every comfort considered and catered for. The hosts paid so much attention to detail, with candles, bath salts, 3 different varieties of pillows, even down to the sizing of bath robes for my husband and I. After a long and challenging year, this was restorative, rejuvenating and peaceful.

  • Barbara & Roderigo


    This is a true luxury experience. Relax, unwind and indulge. An exceptional stay in this sumptuous little palace. I truly recommend the luxury package to fully indulge and experience the feeling of having been transported elsewhere. Dinner was particularly delicious, with generous serves of the freshest tastiest seafood I had in a while! We can trust Cliff to suggest excellent matching wines. We stayed in the second bungalow and we were thoroughly impressed with the endless luxury, comfort, spaciousness, beautiful furniture and features, attention to details and incredible service provided by Susan and Cliff (I particularly loved the giant oval bath, perfectly romantic with the candles and Prosecco offered). Let India come to you! You’ll be enchanted. They deserve a six star indeed.

    OMG! Jodha Bai Retreat was an awesome experience. The hosts were passionate about their retreat and did everything possible to make us feel special. I won’t tell you about the unexpected little touches because it would ruin the surprise!… And then there’s the bungalow itself. Walking through the space was a jaw-dropping experience. We loved it so much we brought takeaway back to the bungalow so we can spend more time enjoying the place. If you want a special experience rent this place now! Sad the fact we had to leave.
