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.

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.


Open:  Barwara Kothi is open all year.

Location:  Barwara Kothi is located in Jaipur, within driving distance of the main shopping markets of the city and a 30 minute drive from the airport.

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 places to eat in Jaipur and in the local neighbourhood.
