Shahpura Bagh

Shahpura |

Located midway between Jaipur and Udaipur on a 45-acre estate, Shahpura Bagh is the residence of Shahpura’s ruling family. The current Raja still lives in part of the property and a family member welcomes every guest on arrival, which gives Shahpura Bagh the feeling of a homestay, albeit a rather palatial one.

The eleven sizeable suites are individually decorated, following a classic Raj-era style. Expect four-poster beds and dark wood storage trunks; writing desks and rolltop baths; old Kashmiri carpets and ancestral photographs. A nod to modernity comes in the form of a television, wi-fi access and air-conditioning. Classic décor and antique furnishings follow through the rest of the property into the dining room where meals comprise of traditional family favourites, homecooked by the head chef who has been working for the household for three generations! Not all meals are served in this formal space, an extensive breakfast (Indian or Western – your choice) is typically served on the lawn, under the mango trees.

The hotel boasts arguably one of the largest swimming pools in Rajasthan, and you can easily while away several hours dozing on a daybed with a book, snacking on samosa and pakora. As appealing as this will be when you’re on a busy journey through Rajasthan, we would encourage you to take time to explore your surroundings. Visit the nearby village of Dhikhol and its majestic fort; experience authentic rural Indian life on a jeep drive; go boating on one of the man-made lakes and spot for birdlife – over 150 species of bird have made their home in the surrounding wetlands. Just make sure you’re back in time for sundowner drinks beside the pool.

We Say
