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.

We didn't stay here but visited for a cooking demonstration and meal. It was a highlight of our trip to India. Himanshu, Deepti and their extended family were wonderful hosts. The cooking demonstration was really interesting, the food provided for dinner was wonderful, and best of all was eating with the family and sharing interesting conversations about India. Highly recommended.

We had an incredible dining experience at a home stay in Jaipur hosted by Himanshu. Himanshu, along with his warm and welcoming family, truly made our dinner memorable. As a group of 10 people, we were treated with the utmost hospitality and care. The highlight of our visit was undoubtedly the home-cooked meal prepared by Himanshu and his family. The food was absolutely delicious and undoubtedly the best we have ever had. Himanshu even graciously shared the recipes with us, adding a personal touch to our culinary experience. We adored Himanshu and his family for their kindness, generosity, and genuine hospitality. Our dinner at the home stay was a true delight, and we cannot recommend it enough to anyone looking for a unique and authentic dining experience in Jaipur. Thank you, Himanshu, for an unforgettable evening!

Himanshu and his family are the most generous hosts and a visit to their home warms the heart. I highly recommend staying with this family when you visit Jaipur. The most important factor is that the food is next level A-mazing! Himanshu taught my daughter and I how to cook one of this family’s favourite dishes. We are forever grateful for the knowledge shared not to mention the great conversation. There are also some wonderful stories about India’s wildlife- including big cats - with spectacular photographs to match.

Pratap Bhawon and his wonderful family hosted my wife and me for a brief stay and home made dinner as a part of a Globus tour stop. We felt the warm welcome and enjoyed, not only the food and drinks, but the conversation and comfortable accommodations. I highly recommend your taking advantage of this family's luxury air bnb home offerings while visiting India.

Pratap Bhawan's regional Rajasthani cuisine is the absolute best in the city. Love every inch of this place, the interiors are so intimate and cosy. The menus are wonderful, very skillfully curated and the flavours are explosive, complimented only by the impeccable service. Much love.

This was a very nice homestay near the train station in Jaipur. The hosts cook really good food I would recommend ordering but if you really want to try a special experience, book their cooking experience. The food is amazing! Furthermore the staff was very attentive and helpful with everything. The rooms were clean and orderly. Thanks for a nice stay!

We spent a couple of nights at Pratap Bhawan. The property is well located and easily accessible to most tourist hotspots. The rooms are nice but maintenance could be better. The choice offered for food is limited and the local delicacies are really their speciality. It's really a value for money option if you are looking for one.
