Shahpura Bagh

A quaint and rural home-stay escape in authentic Rajasthan

In a tranquil setting located between Jaipur and Udaipur, Shahpura Bagh is an ideal stopover for travellers looking to experience the rural culture of Rajasthan. The lakeside estate, secluded within 45 acres, is a nature-lover’s dream. The 250 historic man-made lakes are ideal for birdwatchers and ramblers, and there are many hammock and charpoy spots for guests to relax beside the lakes. For those yearning for blissful relaxation, Shahpura Bagh comes complete with a stunning infinity pool, surrounded by sun loungers, cabanas, and a tented poolside bar for delicious, and well-needed, refreshments.

The nature of the home-stay experience means that food is served in the dining room alongside the other guests and the Shahpura family, however if you are seeking a more intimate evening then you can choose to dine separately. Guests can enjoy dishes varying between Indian, continental and Rajasthani food, a regional delicacy that is authentically prepared over a wood-burning fire.

All nine suites can be found within the ‘Umaid Niwas’ residence on the estate, a 19th-Century manor that was formerly used to entertain visiting nobility in the area. All suites are minimalistic in design, yet combine the perfect blend of luxury, modern comforts with antique furnishings and old-colonial charm.
