About Samode Haveli
Built over 175 years ago the Samode Haveli is set in the rugged hills above Jaipur.
Townhouse to the royal family and still home to its descendants, the Samode Haveli is one of the more spectacular and authentic examples of a haveli -a grand house with inner courtyards built by wealthy merchants or nobility as a testimony to their status.
Home to some fabulous frescoes and murals, and blessed with a leafy garden, it's difficult to believe that from this sanctuary you can stroll out into the bustling city streets of Jaipur.
Rooms and suites are scattered throughout the haveli and each one is unique. The rooms are beautifully decorated and packed with Indian antique furniture, lavish fabrics, rich mosaics and painted arches.
Of particular note is the spectacular hand-painted dining hall which provides a special setting for dinner. Afternoon tea is a treat on the airy verandah and the beautiful fountain courtyard serves a-la-carte meals throughout the day. Another special feature of the Haveli is the elephant ramp.
Guests have access to two marble swimming pools as well as a spa and wellness centre.
Samode Haveli lies in the heart of the walled city of Jaipur in the state of Rajasthan in North India.
How to get there
The Samode Haveli is situated 17 kms. from the Jaipur airport and 6 kms. from the Jaipur railway station. Jaipur is well connected by rail, road and air to all major cities in India.
When to go
Rajasthan has some major climactic fluctuations. During December, January and February, it can be very cold in the mornings and evenings and warm clothes are necessary at these times. During the daytime it is lovely and warm and sunny. March and April are getting fairly hot and it begins to get humid in June and temperatures can rise to an intense and uncomfortable heat. The monsoon breaks in July and lasts until September. October and November are still warm but not cold or wet. The best time to visit is from October to April. It is generally a dry heat with very little humidity, except during the months of September and early October.
