#1 of 5 in Nawalgarh
The Koolwal Kothi is an impressive heritage building in Nawalgarh. With its monumental façade and combination of traditional and European elements, it is a good representative of British colonial architecture in India. It was constructed in 1934, during the time of Anandi Lal ji Hemraj Ji Koolwal. It has a magnificent frontage with stucco decorative colonnades and a series of rooms organized around a central hall. It deviates from the traditional courtyard house planning of the region. Stylistically too, it has more stucco work with very few external fresco paintings, which are otherwise typical to this region. It is very unique in this respect. The main building is a tow – storied structure with frontal triple arched verandah openings and crowning parapets with decorative urns. The interiors are simple with very little decoration in the rooms. However, the emphasis is on bold and bright colors, and the openings are extenuated with multicolor borders or floral motifs, at times emulating tile or stonewall The Kothi has 18 individually designed Deluxe Rooms. where one can witness and live like how the Maharajas used to. You will find the Kothi with antique furniture and a lot of importance has been given to detail to recreate life as it was almost 80-100 years ago. In the Nawalgarh, Koolwal Kothi offers visitors the elegance of a small Rajasthan Palace- like residence with all the comforts of a Heritage Hotel. It captures the charm of the princely city that was built in accordance with the ancient Hindu treatise.Set in a lovely garden, flanking the spacious green roundabout at a corner of Nawalgarh, the Hotel is a few minutes’ drive away from the walled city.With the Hotel Koolwal kothi as base, explore Beautiful surrounding Havelies (e.g. Poddar Museum, Morarka Haveli, Seksheriya Haveli, Jaipuria Haveli, etc), Famous Temples (Salasar Hanuman Ji, Rani Sati Temple, Khatu shyam Ji etc), Famous Destinations (e.g. Mandava, Fathepur, Ramgarh, etc), Taal Chapar (Famous Wild Life Sanctuary)The Kothi is currently owned by Mr. Praveen Khandelwal, one of the descendants of the Koolwal family. The heritage building had been locked and neglected for most of the last 40years. Today the Kothi is a successful heritage hotel run by WelcomHeritage, keeping alive the charming traditions and hospitality in the Shekhawati region.

Tripadvisor describes Koolwal Kothi as a place where one can 'witness and live like how the Maharajas used to'. This is so true in every sense - from the luxurious deluxe rooms in the heritage building, the ambience of the property, the well maintained spa & swimming pool, to the flavourful traditional dishes and the warmth with which they were served. The cordial and well trained staff and manger redefine the meaning of hospitality. A place that truly believes in 'Atithi Devo Bhava' (for whom the guest is God). An easy drive on great roads from Jaipur airport.

Our Navalgarh stay was made fabulous by the very caring hotel staff. With sumptuous meals home style cooked with organic ingredients as far as possible We all really had a great time. The pool and garden areas are very well maintained and the heritage rooms complemented the trip very well. Special thanks to the manager Mr Rahul for his personal touch.

While otw from Jaipur to Pilani for reunion, we took Lunch Break at Koolwal Kothi. Spacious, clean and Welcoming staff. However, food was average and Kothi feeling was missing. I wish they add more Shekhawati attractions!

Its the best hotel in Nawalgarh...with the most amazing staff...special thanks to the manager Mr. Rahul and his staff, can never forget how they helped my family at 1a.m., after we had to leave another hotel at 12 in the night with a 2 year old, arranged food for us at that hour so that we don't sleep empty stomach. Hats off to him and his team... Even 5 star is so less for the team... Thank you once again from me and my family

The property consists of a vintage building and two additional buildings. It has basic amenities for a comfortable stay. The restaurant has a decent limited menu. They have a shallow but clean pool. Considering the fact that one is out for sight seeing almost throughout the day, you are assured a decent choice of drinks and food at the end of the day. The vintage building has all old furnishings in a good condition and does give you a feel of staying in a Haveli. The best thing about the property is the staff. Starting from the manager, Rahul to the receptionist Dilip. Everyone is positive, polite and most helpful. Don't miss the moustaches of Vikramjeet, it sure will find a place in your album. The staff will arrange a visit to Koolwal Haveli, which is just opposite the property. Though, not in a good shape, it will give tou a glimpse of the architecture. The property mainly caters for foreign groups. The staff sometimes gets busy with them.

Stayed in this hotel for one night and was very happy that the experience of staying at a beautiful heritage hotel like this was a positive one, having experienced what it would be like staying at the residence of a maharaja! The building was left abandoned for 40 years and was transformed into a heritage hotel. The hotel has the charming ambience feel to it, decorated with antique furnishings. The room was very spacious and clean.
