At a Glance

A charming and intimate mansion with 39 rooms that’s tucked away from the busy city streets. Even if you don’t stay, don’t miss dining in the hotel’s courtyard.

Indagare Loves

  • A tranquil, hidden gem that’s still very close to the bazaars
  • The memorable and stunningly lit courtyard setting for dinner
  • Sitting and enjoying a coffee or cocktail in the lobby lounge


Just minutes from the clamor of the Pink City’s bazaars, the Samode Haveli offers travelers a tranquil haven with its ethereal Rajasthani-style suites. While it might lack some of the international polish of properties such as the Oberoi Rajvilas, the original décor and architecture will appeal to those in search of Indian authenticity, such as English designer Allegra Hicks. Though more sparse than the public rooms, most guest rooms feature antique draped four-poster beds and elaborately painted Moghul-style walls. Original marble floors, stained-glass windows and family heirlooms add to the genuine atmosphere. All in all, it’s a great escape with a glamorous pool. Don’t miss candlelit dining in the leafy courtyard, with a puppet show in one corner; and the plaintive sounds of a costumed tribal group playing tabla and sitar in another.

Who Should Stay

Couples will love the intimacy of this hotel, and while it welcomes families, it’s not quite as sprawling as some of the other properties in and around Jaipur, which might offer bigger grounds for walking and roaming around with children.
