Samode Haveli
Jaipur

Tucked away in the centre of the bustling Pink City of Jaipur, this atmospheric heritage hotel was built for a prime minister of the royal court in the mid-19th century.

Samode Haveli is arranged around two courtyards which act as the focal points of the hotel, effervescing the scent of pomegranate and lime trees with a maze of narrow, and at times, steep staircases and corridors which lead to 39 charming rooms and suites decorated in a historical Rajput style. Many of these have retained their original decor with beautiful frescoes, antique furniture and pillars inlaid with marble. This is a charming secluded bolthole, but still retains the vibrant city vibe.

Ideally located, guests can leave the confines of the hotel and find themselves immediately in the hustle and bustle of Jaipur city life, and just a ten-minute walk away from iconic sights such as the City Palace, Jantar Mantar and Hawa Mahal, the Palace of the Winds. The spa, fitness centre and large swimming pool set in spacious gardens, conveniently offer a perfect respite after a long day sightseeing and unlike many larger hotels, Samode Haveli has also placed a ban on tour groups, helping to ensure guests’ stays are peaceful and undisturbed by those around them. 

For foodies and gastronomic enthusiasts this hotel remains a highlight of Jaipur, drawing non-residents from across the city to eat in its historic dining hall and courtyard. The cuisine on offer is a mixture of traditional Rajasthani fare and international dishes, which are complimented by the hotel’s superb wine collection; service meanwhile is top-notch and rivals that at the larger multinational hotel chains.

There is a lift, but the age and architecture of the building means that it is slightly like a rabbit-warren with many narrow steps and low doorways, so therefore it may not suit those who are not very firm on their feet.

There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign.

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
