From start to finish, this was an incredible visit to Mandawa with our stay in this charming, beautifully modernized Haveli a super start!
While all the other havelis overpower you with their murals and courtyards, this exceptional Haveli takes you to levels of modern comfort that others can only dream of. The room we were shown from a selection was on the first floor, large, Art Deco painted walls, with traces of Rajasthan in old lamps, and old paintings of colors blending in with the walls. The gigantic bathroom was spic and span with a striking red color, arched recesses, great tub to relax and lie in warmth and ward off the cold winter.
The breakfasts were sumptuous, all that we could hope for, with juices, fresh fruit, and absolutely splendid Spanish omelette, with brown toast, rich butter, honey and jam, downed with strong coffee! Not just a few cups but throughout the day!
Virendra Chobdar, the host was a mine of information on havelis to visit, sights to see, antiques and miniature paintings to admire, selecting a multilingual guide who spoke six languages to steer us in the right direction, in whichever language we were comfortable in.
Leaving was sweet sorrow, with promises to return, advising our family and friends to experience the unexpected joys of the Shekhavati area, at the comforting hospitality of this old and new best of two worlds haveli!
