With only 9 Luxury Suites set in 45 acres of garden and pasture, surrounded by two lakes, the working farm estate resplendent with trees of Neem, Ashoka, Peepal and Mango, is a very special and ultimately serene oasis. Holstein Cows graze languidly in peaceful co-existence with peacocks, an entire menagerie of birds fill the Bagh with birdsong and the occasional blue bull and jackal flit silently amongst the woods.
Walking trails skirt the lakes, hammocks and charpoys are located at scenic spots to relax, read, meditate or watch spectacular sunsets. Go boating on the lakes, surrounded by hundreds of wild fowl which swoop and circle in formation or simply float away in our heated pool, soaking in the winter sun, pristine sky and water. The 19th century Nahar Niwas, one of the two residencies on the estate, remains the family home, warm and gracious, offering the wonderful experience of traditional personalised hospitality, of being welcomed into the heart of an ancient lineage. Umaid Niwas, an eclectic mix of Gothic-Rajasthani architecture, was built as a manor for visiting nobility, and has been restored as a 6 suite residency complete with all the modern amenities of a premium hotel.
A gentle family consisting of the present Raja and his two sisters, with his two nephews and their wives and children live in this garden retreat as the owners and are more than happy to entertain and swap tales with their guests. However, by living in a separate residence, guests may enjoy their privacy as much as they wish, and may choose to dine alone if so desired. Evenings are spent mingling with other guests at the formal drawing room or under the stars around a flickering fire nursing your favourite poison. In the end, Shahpura Bagh, is a reinvigorating respite for fugitives from a hectic life, and coupled with the personalised care that the family lavishes on each guest, creates an environment, one that is more a home than a hotel. Shahpura bagh is well connected and midway between luxury hotels in jaipur and best hotels in Udaipur.
Shahpura Bagh is easily accessible from the best hotels in Jaipur, Shahpura Bagh is a boutique home stay where clients arrive as guests and leave as friends.
