Dera Rawatsa, Jaipurr

Dera Rawatsar

Dera — a type of Indian ancestral home — has been in the Rawatsar family for generations. Here, the rooms blend traditional style with modern conveniences, and a small courtyard, swimming pool and garden area provide tranquil settings in which to unwind after a day exploring the Pink City.

The family have collected a number of antiques over the years which are on display for guests to admire, while locally-produced, colourful textiles have been used to decorate the property, giving it a homely and authentic feel.
