Something different

Samode Haveli

This little gem is tucked away within the city walls but allows you not to be touched by the hustle-bustle of the city. The pool area is beautiful and so is the dining room with its incredible paintings. The courtyard and lounge area around it is a great place to sit and read a book or browse the internet and finish up on some work during your vacation. An added advantage is that this lovely heritage property is almost bang in the middle of the market and the pink city walls. The same brand also has two other properties called Samode Bagh and Samode Palace in Jaipur.
