Hello! I am your host Bhanwar. When you book with us, you will be staying as my guest in my ancestral home, an aristocratic mansion that was built in the late 19 th century by one of my ancestors.
I am an academic with long years of experience in the field of development, both in India and internationally. A few years ago, my wife ( also an academic) and I decided to return and restore this ancestral property using traditional masonry skills and ecologically appropriate building materials. On the 12 acre grounds in which it is set, we have been fine tuning organic agricultural practices, to be able to grow and be self sufficient in foodgrains, oilseeds and vegetables. Our gardens are full of several varieties of flowers, and shade and fruit bearing and medicinal trees and plants, which attract multitudes of birds, butterflies and wild bees. Our water, drawn from deep bore wells, is natural and sweet, and even our swimming pool water has no chemicals in it!. Working in harmony with the environment and the local community is our credo.
Enjoying the simple beauty of the countryside while living in aesthetically deigned luxury, eating delicious slow-cooked local cuisine, and getting to explore both Jaipur city's monuments and rural crafts, bazaars and way of life, are among the things you will encounter as a guest.
My passion for culture, history and conservation of natural and built spaces, for music, books, bicycles, birdwatching, and long walks are evident in the design of and facilities at Savista, and I welcome you to join me in enjoying these simple pleasures.
