I visited Jog Niwas with my friends from abroad in January 2019. Beautiful house with hosts that make you feel at home. The property gives you a feel of living in a fort. The rooms are large, neat and well kept. The host Mr. Gajendra and his staff make you feel at home. They prepared food to suit the needs of my friends from foreign countries and made sure that it was not spicy. Mr. Gajendra took us for a walk in the desert forest which was quite nice. Nice place to stay in Jodhpur.

Shanna Davis or Google Aunty as the local kids call her , have such vast and in depth knowledge about the art and craft of India , which she dispensed patiently to us .
The pieces she crates and design with artisans across India have unimaginable details and cratfman ship ... each and every piece is a masterpiece and they are displayed in the house.

The most wonderful thing about our conversations with Gajendra and Shanane was that along with the knowledge being dispersed to us.. the warmth , the passion and the humour made every conversation a trip into unknown lands of history and art ...
If you ever want to acquire true masterpieces of art and craft ... there is no one else but Shannane Davis and Gajendra Singh one should get in touch with..

My beloved Gajendra and Shanane
Thank you for the warmest hospitality. I love every minute there since the moment I arrived I knew this is my home away from home. The loveliest smile and warm hearted Gajendra. All the great and fascinating stories from Shanane and she is a great artist and most interesting person I ever met from all my journeys. All the laugh we had over the dining table. All the love and care from Dp Bj and gavita. You guys got a place in my heart.
Love u guys to the moon.

Gajendra and Shanane were a great host and companions during our stay at Jog Niwas.

We got to witness the royal hospitality in its modern form & also got the wonderful opportunity of being a part of their Christmas Celebrations. Gajendra enlightened us with his family legacy and we were fortunate enough to get a taste of his family’s traditional Laal maas preparation.

Shanane is a delight to speak with, she is a immensely knowledgable and enlightened us with incredible information during every conversation.

Additionally, we would also like to thank the staff at Jog Niwas - Dalpat, Vijay and Kavita for their untiring and warm services.

Undoubtedly, the best part of our Jodhpur visit was the stay with them. We most certainly will come back for more stories :)

I have just returned from a one week stay at Jog Niwas and I had the most fantastic time. The house is incredibly beautiful, very well designed, elegantly furnished but very cosy and welcomig at the same time. Gajendra is the perfect host. He is very interesting to talk to, knows very much about Indian art and culture and makes super human efforts to make your stay comfortable. For example, he took me personally to the bus stop in the middle of the night, although I would have been perfectly happy to take a taxi. In general, the staff at Jog Niwas are very friendly, the food is superb, most probably the best Indian food I have ever eaten, and there are a wide range of activities on offer, especially if you are interested in the local arts and crafts. I had a chance to visit some local carpet weavers and musicians and just visiting the showrooms where Gajendra exhibits and sells lndian arts and crafts objects was an incredible experience. The house is surrounded by nature and I had a chance to see a desert hare, various gazelles and an incredible variety of the most beautiful birds.The wild life walks are highly recommended.
In short, the place is magical and I will certainly go back some time.

Our family of 5 stayed for 2 nights at Jog Niwas. We were warmly welcomed by Shanane with tea and delightful conversation. The home is located about 15 minutes away from the city and is in a really beautiful setting. The rooms are large and clean with lovely bathrooms and plenty of hot water.
The home is surrounded by wildlife and Shanane took us on a walk to spot deer, peacocks etc. We even saw plenty of wildlife from the rooftop of the home.
The hospitality shown by Shanane and the rest of the team was really appreciated. We had dinner there and the food was tasty and freshly made.
Overall it was a really unique place to stay and we really are happy that we chose Jog Niwas to spend a couple of nights.

Words cannot describe how wonderful this place is. Never in my life have I been somewhere so interesting so warm and so beguiling as jog niwas. The moment we entered the house we were greeted by our hosts with flower petals and blessings. The house itself is stunning and surrounded by nature. We woke up to peacocks and gazelle which we watched from the terrace. For three days we were enthralled by shanane and gajendra, taking us on a safari, teaching us about gemmology and fascinating connoisseur craft, feeding us delicious food and allowing us to share in their wonderful home and lives. Their generosity was beyond anything that I've experienced. In a short time they became dear friends and I will never forget my time with them. It was truly special. But don't take my word for it, go and stay yourself and leave transformed as we were. I bought an incredibly bespoke perfume which shanane made for me and I will be transported back to that magical place and shanane and gajendra whenever I smell it.

It says a lot about the unique opportunities and experiences afforded by Shanane and Gajendra that there is no obvious category for their services here on TA! We concur with the many laudatory comments of prior reviewers and struggle with articulating more effectively the quality of our very, very special experience. As with many, we found Shanane through a search for an independent, somewhat "off-the-beaten track" tour of northern India/Rajasthan. We found that and much more.

First, on a practical basis our tour was well organized and included a rich and satisfying range of stops, activities, and accommodations - palaces, forts, homestays, havelis from all eras - exactly what we were looking for. What we had no reason to even expect were the extraordinary opportunities to meet and spend time with a wonderful mix of fascinating people who are knowledgeable about and invested in the history, culture, environment, and future of this amazing area. Their eagerness to share their love of Rajasthan was palpable and infectious - beginning with the exceptional hospitality offered by Shanane and Gajendra themselves - two delightful and multi-talented people with whom we had the good fortune to spend the bulk of two days - learning about local crafts and gorgeous traditional art forms; stalking wildlife; visiting historic sites; and enjoying delicious food and beautiful traditional music. One leaves with a deepened sense of what TRUE luxury is indeed.

It's difficult to know how to reflect the enjoyment we experienced on our trip to Rajasthan in a review of this type. Earlier reviews below articulate the special opportunities that a trip organised by Shanane brings, but it was the relationships that our trip enabled that made the difference.
Right from the start of my correspondence with Shanane (who crafted the itinerary), I felt quite happy that our holiday would meet our expectations - but had no idea to what extent it would exceed them. It was, quite simply, the most extraordinary holiday we have ever had - and most importantly, we went home feeling we had made several lasting friends, and it was they that made the holiday so special.
I cannot recommend Gajendra and Shanane's hospitality and tour arrangements enough - crikey, the whole thing was just perfect!

We have just returned from a fourteen night holiday in Rajastan organised by Shanane of True Luxury Tours. We had an absolutely amazing time. If you want to experience real India, and enjoy some luxurious settings this is the trip for you.

We wanted to avoid the usual tourist trail and see plenty of wildlife. I also wanted to ride a Marwari horse. Shanane managed to include all this in the schedule and found us some truly astounding places to stay as well. My favourites were the Raj Mahal in the pretty town of Bhindar where we had an enormous suite, and two very romantic dinners in the floodlit courtyard, and Bagheera Camp which is great for wildlife. We were also lucky enough to spend some time at Shanane's home where we were treated to a viewing of the exquisite art forms Gajendra and Shanane's company produces. Many of the pieces were of a quality that I have not seen before, even in stately homes and the British Museum.

In all three places the hospitality was amazing and we were treated more like friends than paying guests. The last two weeks have been far more than just a holiday, they have enabled us to experience a lifestyle in a way we did not imagine possible.
