Royal Heritage Haveli , Jaipur India, Rajasthan
His Highness Madho Singh Ji built this grand haveli in the eighteenth century, and today, Angelique and Pradip Singh manage the hotel. Royal Heritage Haveli is majestic and beautifully decorated with lovely calm gardens, stunning rooms, and a popular terrace for dining. The hotel strives to give a taste of the opulent Maharaja lifestyle from a bygone era and succeeds.
Jaipur, the pink city, is a popular corner of the Golden Triangle, admired for its characteristic 'pink' coloured sandstone and intriguing mix of ancient and modern. There are plenty of heritage monuments and cultural offerings, a colourful bazaar, and fascinating backstreets with tiny temples, textiles, and trades. You can escape from the bustle at Royal Heritage Haveli, which is located to the east about 15 minutes drive from the city centre. Here, the tranquil courtyards are lined with shady trees and flowers, and the pool is welcoming. Dine on the terrace and watch the bonfire with a pre-dinner cocktail.
The eleven rooms are exquisitely decorated and very quirky in design, and each one is different. The frescoes and furnishings are breathtaking. They’re comfortable and spacious, but don’t expect sleek modern technology – it wouldn’t fit here anyway. The layout is unusual for a hotel, built as it was for another age, but for those who enjoy unusual places, it all adds to the glamour and character.
Royal Heritage Haveli is a particularly great choice for honeymooners and couples who want beautiful surroundings and serenity in an otherwise chaotic Jaipur. It’s pleasant, quirky, and easy on the eye.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
We really felt that Experience Travel Group were showing us the real India in all its wonderful and colourful glory.
