In a posh, quiet part of Jodhpur, my place is perfect for everyone who would prefer a quiet sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but still close the Old City and the Mehrangarh Fort. Beautifully furnished with a nice drawing room that sports great polo memorablia, I welcome you to a quiet but great part of Jodhpur.
The room is spacious with a dressing table and seating area. All rooms have air-conditioning and large bathrooms with all modern amenities including showers.
The ambiance of our place is that of a urban home (haveli) of a Rajput Zamindar (Land Lord) . Our Home is open to guests and share with them the warmth as we would our own. We grow our own vegetables - grown organically to ensure a healthy and safe diet .Though situated on the main road , serenity is maintained by a two rows of trees and a well maintained garden. All food preparations are personally supervised by the Ladies of the House. We have kept in mind the needs of our guests. We have blended yesterday's elegance with today's comforts. Along with the room there is a comfortably spacious lounge cum dining room. For health reasons we have avoided use of wall to wall carpets and use only traditional Durries, furniture which have been crafted by our handicraft and furniture manufacturing unit . We also continue with the traditional "Dhoop" in the evenings.
This adds to a healthy fragrance , keeps the evil eye at bay and good spirits in a great mood!! We have tried to blend the "Haveli" character and aesthetics of a bygone era with the technology and convenience of the modern age.
The room has Air Conditioning and a Minibar with an attached bathroom. fitted with modern amenities. The room has a telephone with direct dialing facility. We can pick you up if you request us in advance.
Apart from their own room, guests have access to the following places:
- The drawing room

- The organic vegetable garden
- Let us know in advance if you'd like to use the kitchen
