Sitting in the tranquil courtyard, sipping champagne to the sound of the fountains and as the sun is setting, it is easy to forget that you are in the heart of vibrant Jaipur. Behind the walled gardens is an oasis of gardens and a former Indian mansion that dates back 175 years. Steeped in regal history and with the elaborate décor to match it is a place that has stepped out of a fairy tale. Bedrooms and suites were once royal apartments, yet the furnishings are reminiscent of a royal residence. The craftsmanship is undeniable. Overlooking the central courtyard from private balconies, guests feel as if they have been transported into an Indian dream. Their spa pool, is tucked away in the wellness gardens and is lined with beautiful day beds where you can escape the fierce daytime sun before plunging into the refreshing water. Dine amongst the hand painted murals and admire the artists that have brought Indian culture to life, all whilst savouring some of the finest traditional Rajasthani cuisine.
