The Golden Triangle
Samode Haveli, Jaipur

Once the town house of the rulers of Samode, this historic haveli, parts of which are over 200 years old, sits in a quiet street within the heart of the old city. A peaceful refuge from the bustling streets of Jaipur, the haveli was built around a series of courtyards, and many of the original features, such as the colourful hand-painted murals, and furnishings remain.

Guests are greeted with the warmest welcome and the restaurant serves up some of the best Rajasthani food found in Jaipur. The huge pool is a welcome sight after a day’s sightseeing and families are well catered for.

Facilities & Activities

The large Moorish-style swimming pool, surrounded by traditional Indian day beds and swaying palm trees, is the perfect spot to spend a relaxing afternoon. There is a jacuzzi at one end, as well as a wading pool for children. Or perhaps unwind at the spa, which specialises in Ayurvedic treatments, or hit the well-equipped fitness centre with steam room.

The hotel’s location makes it the perfect starting point for a walk or cycle through the old city. Join Samode Haveli’s early morning walk to witness everyday life in Jaipur; visit the markets, see the local artisans at work, enjoy a cup of tea at the famous ‘Sahu Chai’ tea stall, and take a ride on an e-rickshaw.

In the evening, enjoy a drink whilst watching a traditional puppet show or a Rajasthani music and dance performance.
