It gives us great pleasure to introduce to you ‘Vivaana Culture Hotel’, Mandawa, Rajasthan. Located in the beautiful ‘Open art gallery ‘of India, the Shekhawati region, Vivaana is a 150 years old haveli which has been lovingly restored and renovated into a Boutique Heritage Hotel. It features 33 luxuriously decorated rooms and suites where each room is distinct, stocked with period furniture, having original frescos and complemented by modern amenities which give a taste of the life of the erstwhile rich Marwari traders. Vivaana Culture Hotel is a captivating twin Haveli adorned with fascinating paintings. Both the exterior and interior boast of superb and rare artifacts and frescos. An art lover will definitely fall short of time, given the expanse of the artwork to be admired. Personalized service and warm Rajasthani hospitality make the guests feel at home. The lawns, terraces and courtyards make up for an excellent ambience. At Vivaana, you have several experiences to look forward to- cycle around the lazy village, go ride a camel on the famous sand dunes of Rajasthan, treat yourself at the Spa, sample fine teas from India, lounge by the pool, sip on a royal Martini at the bar, enjoy the evenings with the traditional art of storytelling by way of a puppet show or just curl up in a corner with a book! The famous Salasar and Rani Sati temple are an hour’s drive from the Hotel.

What an experiance! To be able to stay in a majestical property like this is sensational. The history of this property is enchanting; the ambiance is warm and embracing with a sense of awe, as to how it was built and knowing what the rooms were used for adds another dimension to the overall stay. Great service, with added cultural performances during dinner. A great stay and the walk through Mandawa village is another highlight.

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed here with our two young children to break up the journey between Bikaner and Jaipur and WOW, it was amazing!! The property itself is a beautifully restored haveli and is absolutely stunning. The guest rooms are heritage style but equipped with modern facilities and are very spacious. We enjoyed a delicious dinner accompanied by traditional music and a puppet show (which the kids loved). The breakfast was top notch and the restaurant service was impeccable for all meals. Mr Simmons showed us around the local village and we took the bicycles for a ride out around the countryside. The pool area is also lovely. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and we were all really sad to leave! We would absolutely recommend staying here, it was one of our favourite hotels in our trip to India.

We stayed here for one night on a tour around Rajasthan. We stayed in one of the Royal apartments and I can honestly say I have never stayed in such a beautiful room, it was stunning. The hotel itself was also stunning and had been refurbished brilliantly. We loved walking around it, there was always something to see. We had dinner and breakfast there, both very good meals with excellent service. Only one issue immediately above the bedroom was a water tank/pump which unfortunately made noise all night long every few minutes so we didn't get a great sleep. Such a shame as everything else about the hotel was brilliant

Overall we loved this hotel and would highly recommend it ! The Haveli is extremely atmospheric and beautifully renovated. Room was fantastic and we enjoyed the breakfasts, evening buffet and a la carte menu . The musicians and puppet show entertainment each night was extremely good . The pool area also 👍. It was fun walking through the small town streets in the evening being greeted by friendly locals and happy kids 😃. Staff were friendly and attentive too. The towns nearby were non touristy and authentic - enjoyed touring these (Only minor improvements I would make are :- - power wash the path to the pool every morning - be more attentive clearing things up - towels , glasses and plates not collected on occasion for long periods). But overall a great hotel in a great location to explore the local small towns and beautiful Haveli.

Nestled amidst the majestic landscapes of Rajasthan lies a hidden gem that seamlessly marries luxury with tradition. My recent stay at this remarkable establishment left me enchanted by its ethnic charm and warm, homely ambiance. From the moment I stepped foot into the grand lobby adorned with intricate Rajasthani artwork and antique artifacts, I knew I was in for a memorable experience. The attention to detail in preserving the cultural heritage of Rajasthan while offering modern amenities is truly commendable.

Very large 300 year old historic haveli converted in charming hotel with historical decor rooms and grand interior court where evening meals are served under the stars with music entertainment and, if needed, fire pits near the tables. Breakfast is served in the interior dining room. The charming building is worthy of a museum, A great experience to feel carried away in time and history. We were there for 2 nights and they offered us the most exquisite rooms. They found a marvelous guide for us, Mr. Om, a friend of the owner who showed us all fabulous havelis. And the hotel offered us a free camel wagon ride in the village for happy hour. Very attentive staff, personalized service of a family owned hotel.

This is a beautifully restored Haveli in the middle of a small sleepy village. The rooms are all different and original with updated bathrooms. Beware of very slippery marble bathroom floors! The room was initially rather musty and felt cold but the heater helped. The pool area was pretty but basic and the spa is very basic and the massage therapist was away so a substitute came in who had obviously never performed a massage and had very rough hands, so exfoliated at the same time! The food was very good, it was only ever at room temperature but very tasty and a high quality. There is a bangle stall, puppet stall and show at night. The young boys make the bangles with their family, they are so beautiful and such great presents, and n addition to helping the local community. The staff were all very good and attentive. There are lots of stairs and quirky features that might make it more challenging for someone of limited mobility. This really is a beautiful place that transports you back in time. A privilege to be able to experience this wonderful place.

We just spent a relaxing 4 days at this historic restored Havali hotel after 8 weeks of travelling. The room is plush and spacious, clean, nice fluffy towels, a comfortable bed, shower necessities supplied and all serviced daily. The staff were very curtious and helpful. I am sure all the 'unseen' staff were as helpful. I will give special thanks to Anil, Indraj and Jitu who serviced our meals and clean our room. Nothing seemed to be a problem and all our requests were done with a smile. This is a very popular Havali and I can understand why. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
