Shoba posted on 16 September

Extravagant palaces, colourful bazaars and the city’s rich Mughal heritage are just some of the reasons why Rajasthan’s a popular heritage vacay destination. So, for the time when you plan a long overdue weekend getaway to this royal city, RARE India has rounded up some of the most exotic hotels for you to stay at. Considering Rajasthan’s close proximity to Delhi, you need to pack your bags and go, go, go.

Narain Niwas Palace

The charm of Narain Niwas Palace is the estate it stands on, a virtual ten-acre grove in the middle of Jaipur city. Walking up the wide driveway of the palace, one can see the Haveli which is a typical marriage of Indian and British building styles – arches, courtyards, verandahs and bold fresco design summing up a building that many of the Jaipur havelis still try to emulate. Narain Niwas offers 37 rooms and suites, has a swimming pool, spa, two restaurants, a bar and a shopping arcade too. Narain Niwas is noted for its fresh and delightful cuisine which is a combination of recipes from Rajasthan and northern India.

Bera Safari Lodge

In western Rajasthan’s Pali district, Jawai and Bera surrounds one of the largest dams of the state. It is the efforts of Shatrunjay, Bera Safari Lodges’ owner and a few conversationalists who crusaded to stop mining grants to protect the landscape and thus, the Leopards. Simplistic, comfortable and spacious – the cottages are spread over a ten-acre estate, each of the five cottages are designed to look out to the forests and the famous Liloda hill. Shatrunjay organises all the activities that the lodge offers, in tune with the Bera’s ideal of preserving the wild and empowering the community.

The Mountbatten Lodge

Just four suites tucked away in the Aravalli ranges is Mountbatten Lodge inspired by a local lore that Lord Mountbatten once camped here. Built to reflect the British penchant for wilderness with no compromise on luxury, this lodge offers open spaces, stylishly laid out dinners with staff in attendance that brings to fore a  sense of the days of the Raj. The Lodge offers riding, sunset safaris, leopard tracking and treks to Kumbhalgarh but it is the Jazz sessions at the bar that you will come back for more.
