Samode Bagh -Samode - Jaipur / Rajasthan
Perhaps you shouldn't be reading this. For then you will come upon Samode Bagh suddenly, surprisingly.
Driving through the rural green you will chance upon a wall travelling beside you and wonder what lies behind. You will enter the wide gates and as you take in the horses being groomed in the stables, a palatial marble façade will rise up in panoramic magnificence in front of your eyes. You will go through the cool and discreetly splendid main lounge and look out into 20 acres of gardens, modeled in the Mughal style, and be quite delighted. You could then do nothing in the natural bliss of this retreat, or imagine yourself in another era, strolling amidst this natural splendour in regal robes with a princely consort, as some guests, and some honeymooners, are known to do!
Deceptively simple-looking at first glance, the 44 dune-coloured tented tops are spacious, inviting and attractively furnished.
Air-conditioned comfort and all contemporary conveniences in the rooms and en-suite marble bathrooms would have you forget this was a tent, until you glance up at the muslin ceiling printed with floral motifs in gold that reach up to a tented peak. Each room has a sit-out where you can relax, read, engage with the quiet and with nature or watch the warm buzz of the main pavilion. This is the way to live, as we are often told by our guests.
The main dining pavilion is a warm hub that serves royal Rajasthani and international cuisine. You can sit and eat on your own though usually it's a great place to meet up with fellow travelers and swap stories over an excellent meal. If you prefer a quiet intimate dining experience, the poolside offers the perfect spot.
Of course, given the environs of the Bagh, dining al fresco is perhaps the most pleasurable experience and many occasions and celebrations are organized under the trees and the sky and the stars. Rajasthani food, music, song and dance are perfect accompaniments to the natural grandeur that overtakes your senses.
