This property as the name suggests is named after maharaj kawar jaswant singh ji ii of deogarh (mewar).the rulers of deogarh have directly descended from chunda (chonda), and for this reason they are designated as chundavats. Jaswant niwas is an approximately 60 year old residence, initially owned by maharaj himmat singh ji of jodhpur (present jodhpur ruler maharaja gaj singh ji- ii's uncle) and later purchased by the present owner lt.col.randhir singh of deogarh, a retd. Indian army officer and a 1971 war veteran. He is also the present rao sahib of deogarh's uncle. This residence has been opened by his son who was originally a tea planter in west bengal for 13 years and relocated himself back in 2009. For close to 6 years he was actively involved in the administration of mehrangarh fort jodhpur. He along with his parents, wife, his son and two dogs are your hosts. Everything is personally supervised / managed by them. Every guest here is special.

Mr Hemant himself was waiting for us right at the main gate. A big teddy bear kind of personality in his traditional white kurta, He welcomed us with a warm smile and took our car inside his personal parking. I could not imagine all that young energetic conversation was made by this person; He is indeed young at heart. He helped my dog to be at complete peace by showing her the big lawn he has got in the house. This place has a big traditional Rajasthani corridor which is not very common these days in big cities. By now my mind connected and acknowledged the fact that this is why Rajasthani’s are called most humble people on earth. Rooms are cozy and very ethnic with all the modern amenities. I could not believe interiors and the garden is maintained by the family themselves. When I arrived at this place it was already 5:30 pm evening. We were served Indian masala tea with the good warm conversation of one to two hours. Mr and Mrs Hemant are so welcoming and warm. Mrs. Hemant is such a plant lover, stylish and creative person. Every piece of the decorated corner, the little shrine, little tables and interiors of this place are so traditional yet so modern in their own way.

The experience with Jaswant Niwas started right from the time I was looking for a decent stay in Jodhpur. We were a family of 10 people with the age group of 4 to 60 so I was clearly looking at a family-friendly and budget-friendly place. After doing a lot of r&d, I stumbled upon Jaswant Niwas. I checked the reviews and almost all of them were positive. I checked the pictures of the property and everything looked beautiful. Then I got in touch with the owner of the place, Hemantji and he turned out to be a gem of a person. I liked the fact that he was pretty straight forward as well as a warm and friendly person. While most people in his position would only be interested in the number of days we intend to spend at their property, Hemantji took a keen interest in our itinerary and made helpful suggestions. He even helped us arrange cabs from Jaisalmer to Jodhpur at the last moment.  Now, coming to the property, it is a lovingly crafted place. Every room is beautifully done and every nook and corner of the room delights you with something creative. Also, each room has a different look and feel therefore it doesn't feel templatized. A lot of thought must have gone into every little thing in the room. The linens, the furniture, the quilts/blankets, the artefacts, the bathrooms - everything was tastefully chosen and/or done. Even the beds where quite comfortable as the mattresses were not too soft and not too hard. Unlike artificial air fresheners used by hotels, there was a subtle and likeable fragrance in each room with the help natural air fresheners.  While the breakfast menu is deceptively simple, it delights you with its tasty and homely flavours. Hemantji's wife was also a wonderful host and it reflected in the way she and her staff made us delicious breakfast. The way Hemantji and his wife hosted us, we felt that we've come to a relative's place and not at some paid accommodation. Pet lovers will love this place, even more, thanks to Dizzy, their adorable dachshund. On the other hand, even if you're not a pet person, the dog is extremely friendly and won't even bark at you.  While I would 100% recommend this place to anyone who is visiting Jodhpur I have a small request. Please respect the place which Hemantji has made so lovingly. With all due respect to people reading this review, please don't abuse this place and help maintain its beauty and dignity. Because places like these are very, very few and therefore they need to be treated with the utmost care, respect, and love.  Hemantji, if you're reading this, thank you for everything. Hope this place brings you great guests, interesting stories, beautiful memories, and a flourishing business.

This was our second visit at Jaswant Niwas and it was again a very wonderful experience. Be it the well decorated rooms or Mr Hemant and his family's warm hospitality, everything was more than perfect. Not to forget Mr Hemants's guidance about places to see, shopping options, restaurants to try in Jodhpur always comes very handy.
