From Maharaja's residence to a boutique hotel, here's why Srinivas is your ideal holiday spot!

A luxurious holiday in Jaipur is incomplete without a visit to Srinivas and here's why

Jaipur is undoubtedly one of the most sought after tourist hot-spots in the country. The city is thronged by tourists searching tales of past, luxury and hints of forgotten culture in the everyday colours of Jaipur. Jaipur is undoubtedly 'the place to be at' when you're on a luxury vacation and are looking for some unmatched grandeur. The city houses several palaces, forts and heritage homes that have been converted in boutique hotels which can be rented for a day, a week of fortnight to feel like the royalties themselves.

If you're someone who is on a leisurely vacation to Jaipur, this royal residence should undoubtedly be the place for you to stay at. Turned from a Maharaja's residence into a unique boutique hotel, Srinivas is a testament of luxury, grace, great taste and everything that is grand about the city of Jaipur.

Immerse in the finery & grandeur of 'Srinivas'- Residence of Good Fortune

The once residence of the royal family of Jodhpur and Maharaja Karanvijay Singh, Srinivas is a stunning property that lies surrounded by lush greenery and stables that are fit for royal horses. The Srinivas and its facade is visible only after one has entered the property and made a significant round in the gardens. Aided by a pool in the front and a traditional Rajasthani structure, this hotel oozes luxury in every step you take towards it.

From the leisurely outdoor furniture which calls for one to sit on it and enjoy the awe-inspiring view to the welcome are which is simply brimming with splendid furniture pieces aided by lush carpets and luxe wallpapered walls.

Since the boutique hotel was once a residence and has been left with most of the family's possessions, it is quite uniquely charming, as each room is a little different than the other and tells a completely different story. Some more modern and artistic while others more traditional and luxurious, a stay here is sure to make you feel nothing less than a royal yourself.

You might find yourself stopping mid walk, adoring a specific piece of furniture or design as the best of Jaipur's art and craftsmanship has been put on display at the hotel. The view too, does much good to the soul as well as your eyes which will surely find the view of handsome horses running in the grounds as mesmerising anything that the property houses.

Knock Knock

If you're planning to head to Jaipur and immerse yourself in all the material luxuries and worldly pleasure you can find, book a room at the Srinivas and live life king sized. Lounge at the exuberant terrace or read a book by the window of your private suite, a stay at Srinivas will be nothing less than a lesson in luxury.
