Today's Pratap Bhawan stands on Himanshu Rathore's ancestral land and is located in Jaipur's enviable and poshest colony. Himanshu belongs to an erstwhile jageer called Nimaj and his father served in the army. He has years of experience as a naturalist and even today is affiliated closely with biggest wildlife centers like Bandhavgarh. His passion for the wild and wildlife photography is proudly presented on the walls of the homestead. While Himanshu hails from Marwar his gracious wife, Deepti belongs to Mewar. His keen interest in meeting new people and socializing were the driving force behind him starting the venture in 2010. Pratap Bhawan was built in 1980 and therefore has a fine blend of modern but traditional styles. Credit to this is duly given to Himanshu's wife, Deepti. Not only does she have a natural sense of hospitality as her family owns a Palace hotel but she is a professional interior designer to boot. Her class and taste are evident throughout the home's effortless elegance. All the 4 bedrooms of Pratap Bhawan are soothing in colors but with a burst of richness, which make them charming and very true to Rajasthani culture. All bedrooms come with large and impeccable en suite bathrooms, beds equipped with luxury spring matresses and they are air conditioned. The family's personal temple is for private use only but guests can come and view it while giving it utmost respect. The lush garden boasts of a vibrant and cozy breakfast nook. A big open terrace with its swing invites people to open up a book before enjoying dinner.Other than sightseeing across Jaipur, guests can enjoy an experience exclusive to Pratap Bhawan. As Himanshu works avidly as a freelance tour leader he is takes people on specialized and unique wildlife and photography tours. He worked for three years with a renowned wildlife safari company and as a naturalist. This ensures that tours conducted by Himanshu for his own guests are of an incomparable standard. Other than this Himanshu is also a passionate cook and would be open to providing guests with cooking lessons on Rajasthani cuisine. On special request, he can also conduct bird walks around Jaipur, arrange for ayurvedic massages and even yoga sessions at home. Deepti is also a masterful Rangoli maker and guests can learn how to create those colorful designs from her.

PRATAP BHAWAN : MY NEW FAVOURITE PLACE TO SATISFY MEAT CRAVINGS! I had not eaten meat since the last three months (when the lockdown began) and recently I was suddenly craving a lot for some great non-vegetarian food to hog on. Just at the right moment I came across Pratap Bhawan’s page on Instagram and saw a picture of some super scrumptious looking kebabs and I was instantly tempted to try them. I did my research thoroughly by reading about their venture and without thinking twice, I placed an order with them for some of their signature dishes. * FOOD : 5/5 1. MAAS KE KEBABS 2. MURGH KE KEBABS 3. MAAS KA ACHAAR 4. MURGH KA ACHAAR Both the kebabs were smoked & shallow fried with cardamom, cloves, red chilli and flavoured with garlic, green chillies & fresh coriander. They were EXTREMELY TENDER & DELECTABLE and the mutton kebabs truly melted in my mouth. Coming to the pickles, this was the very first time that I tried meat pickles. These pickles have been made with their secret spicy & tangy family recipe which is cooked and preserved with varied spices & mustard oil. I honestly loved these pickles and I have stored them in the refrigerator to eat it with every meal. * PACKAGING : 5/5 The packaging was done efficiently and following all safety measures. I also loved the jars in which they sent the pickles. They’re amazing. * DELIVERY PROCESS : 5/5 My meal was delivered to me through an online delivery app. Hassle-free, no contact and quick delivery was done. * VALUE FOR MONEY : 5/5 * WILL I TRY AGAIN? OFCOURSE! I’ve already added Pratap Bhawan to my list of favourites. I’m looking forward to try their Mayo Kathi Rolls and the weekend specials like their signature Raan and Khadh Murgh! Mr. Himanshu and Mrs. Deepti make sure to prepare the food with utmost love and care which you will feel on your palate when you eat these delicious & authentic home-cooked Rajasthani dishes from Pratap Bhawan.

Getting to come onto a home setting and learning a little more about how people live there is so refreshing. Learning about some of our differences and yet hearing and seeing the many things we both value. So much more realistic that answers from a tour guide. Learning a bit more about all the time that goes into producing the layers of flavors in Indian cooking was enlightening. Himanshu even sent some recipes by email for us to try. I was so impressed by the eggplant dish. First time ever I've eaten eggplant and enjoyed it.

I was fortunate to spend an evening here with my tour group for a cooking demonstration and dinner that was absolutely phenomenal. The hosts were incredibly polite and immediately treated us like family, they even had 3 beautiful dogs that made it feel even more like home. The cooking demonstration was exciting and interesting, and the meals afterwards were so different to what you might find in a restaurant, in the most delicious way possible. If you have the chance to stay at this place longer than I did, I can’t recommend it enough.
