The Barwara Fort was constructed in the 14th century by the Chauhans (Indian Rajput caste) and was conquered by the Rajawat Dynasty from the Hadas in 1734. During World War II, Raja Man Singh from the noble family of Barwara along with Jaipur State Armed Forces fought alongside the British. In appreciation of his services, he was bestowed with the title of Rao Bahadur. His grandson, Prithviraj Singh, has restored the fort to its previous glory in tandem with Amit Rai of Espire Group.

There are 48 one-bedroom suites, including five specialty suites, housed within the historic fort’s walls. Sizes range from 753 square feet (70 square meters) to 3,014 square feet (280 square meters).
