Barwara Kothi

Rajasthan & the North

Rating: Simple    

Barwara Kothi overview

Barwara Kothi is a colonial villa dating back to the early 20th century. Inspired by Lutyens Delhi it has a distinct Raj feel to it and is spread over 2000 square yards.

The 'kothi', which is a mansion house, was the residence in Jaipur of the Barwara Royal Family. The kothi was constructed by Raja Man Singh of Barwara, a World War II veteran and an accomplished polo player who was a close confidante and cousin of the late Maharaja of Jaipur, Man Singhji. The kothi evokes the serenity and nostalgia of the Raj with rooms furnished with traditional furniture, antiques and photographs reminiscent of life back then. Guest rooms also feature modern touches like air conditioning, Wi-Fi and en-suite bathrooms.

The kothi is 500 metres from Jai Mahal and 1km from Raj Bhawan. The immediate area around the kothi is a residential suburb of Jaipur. The back of the property has sloping green lawns and lush foliage.

Rooms: The 9 guest rooms are air conditioned and have a television and telephone. They also have sliding doors opening onto the lawns. All have an en-suite bathroom and some have balconies.

Activities: City sightseeing, shopping, relaxing in the gardens. The staff can advise on places to visit and retaurants in the local neighbourhood and the city as a whole.

Mr Bernard Catterall (04/03/2018)

"Certainly the least grand place we stayed in but it sufficed for a short stay. Location very near noisy flyover and not much to do (walking wise) in surrounding areas. Like staying in someone's house - which is exactly the point of an Haveli."

Mr John Baugh (18/02/2018)
"Mrs Deepali Sing was extremely helpful here and the accommodation was reminiscent of the days of the British Raj. Old photos and furniture of the era. The food was very good both breakfast and home cooked evening meal"
Mr. David Goodwin (05/11/2017)
"The position and accommodation was good but we were disappointed with the service. It wasn't friendly like a homestay but it didn't sufficiently function as a hotel either. If we met the owners, we were unaware of it."
Mr. Peter Clouting
"A small guest house with real family history. The owner was on hand to lend assistance where required and rooms clean and comfortable with a balcony which looked out on a pleasant garden and parrots to wake us up."
Niven & Tricia Bamsey
"Excellent family run home, very friendly and helpfull "
