A monument to India’s regal past, your first introduction to Samode Haveli will be along an elephant ramp leading to a calming whitewashed courtyard and pool area. The original palace furnishings have been lovingly maintained, while the hand-painted dining room provides a colourful backdrop to your evening meals. Rooms are spread around traditional square haveli courtyards and there are plenty of interesting nooks and crannies to explore within the complex.

Each room at Samode Haveli is unique, with traditional décor, hand-painted murals and features such as pillars, arches and seating which give a nod to the original use of the building.
Both the Deluxe rooms and Suites are spacious and comfortable, while the Sheesh Mahal ('place of mirrors') room is completely mirrored. All rooms have either a private balcony or terrace looking out to the property's pool, fountains and gardens, as an en suite bathroom and amenities such as a satellite TV, minibar and tea/coffee making facilities.
Samode Haveli is located within the walled city of central Jaipur. The area is busy with bustling markets and local shops nearby, which can be explored on foot.
Food and Drink
The former royal dining hall, with its beautiful hand-painted murals, now serves as the hotel restaurant, serving a choice between traditional Rajasthani fare and international cuisine. You can also take afternoon tea on the sheltered veranda. Cocktails and other beverages can also be enjoyed, perhaps while relaxing by the pool on comfortable day beds.
For younger members of the family the hotel has a splash pool, and in the evening children can watch traditional puppet shows.
The Sheesh Mahal suite is ideal for honeymooning couples. Relax in a rose petal bath or enjoy an intimate dining experience, both of which can be arranged on request.
