and charming, Samode Haveli is a self-contained, intimate, heritage
hotel, hidden deep in the folds of the busy streets of old Jaipur.
A nobleman's urban abode restored to
perfection, the Haveli emerges, as if from nowhere at the end of a
narrow lane - an oasis of serenity in the depths of the lively city.
Whenever you come to visit the treasures of Jaipur, this is the hotel
you will want to make your home.
A quintessential Indo-Saracenic regal
residence, Samode Haveli is seeped in history and tradition, and yet
offers its guests contemporary luxuries and the impeccable hospitality
and courtesy that are the signature style of the Samode group of hotels.
The regal ceremonial ramp welcomes you
like it did the royal bridegrooms who came on elephants. The romance of
this 175-year-old Haveli continues through a passage decorated with
traditional memorabilia and leads you to a delightful central courtyard,
overlooked by balconies from where women would watch the wedding
procession and shower rose petals.
Guests are ushered straight to this hub,
lavishly decorated with traditional patterns hand-painted on the walls
and ceilings and is the perfect spot to savour a cuppa, catch up on the
news or simply sit back and let the wonder of Samode take over. A far
cry from the hum of the city just beyond the gates!
Sink into a extravaganza, surrounded with
patterned drapes in the lavishly decorated rooms and suites of Samode
Haveli. The 39 rooms and suites of the Haveli reflect the rich history
and culture of Samode. Each room has a distinctive character that
invites you to lie back against luxurious bolsters on antique couches or
sit back and flip through the channels on your TV screens.
Built across many levels, the former royal
apartments are now deluxe rooms and suites that have retained the
exquisite luxuriousness of the past with contemporary amenities. The
private courtyards and balconies look out upon the charming pool,
fountain courts and gardens of the Haveli.
Inside the rooms, the sparkling white
marble is effectively offset by tasteful colour schemes, rich mosaic and
painted arches. Old hunting photographs, family portraits, interesting
coffee-table books and artifacts give you a taste of the royal life. The
spectacular Sheesh Mahal (palace of mirrors) suite is a sensual treat
with its curved arches, florid hand-painted murals and glistening mirror
Rooms are designed to ensure that your
comforts are met - a well stocked mini-bar, coffee and tea counters,
generous wardrobe space and satellite television. The lavish en-suite
bathrooms offer top-of-the-line facilities and a range of organic
toiletries. Unwind in the bathtub surrounded with rose petals as you sip
a glass of champagne - a perfect end to the day.
Food and Wine
dining is now also exotic.
The exquisite former dining hall that
serves as a restaurant is bedecked with colourful hand-painted murals.
There's a choice between the traditional Rajasthani cuisine and
international flavours within these frescoed interiors. Afternoon tea in
the regal Veranda Lounge is soothing and meditative as you relax and
watch the gentle world go by. Cocktails or a meal by the grand pool is a
luxurious indulgence as you lie back in the comfortable salas
or day beds that are strewn with large, regal bolsters.
