Shahpura Bagh is one of Rajasthan’s finest luxury homestays, located on a picturesque nobleman’s estate between Udaipur and Jaipur.
About halfway between Jaipur and Udaipur lies a beautiful necklace of lakes that one royal family created by putting their private estate – known as Shahpura Bagh – on the line. These tranquil lagoons were a vital source of water for the local people and today, are a refuge for an array of birdlife. These days, the family are still committed to bettering their community, through the modern enterprise of eco-tourism.
Shahpura Bagh is today one of Rajasthan’s most luxurious homestays. There are 9 suites set in 45 acres of peaceful gardens and farmland, each featuring its own unique decor. Leaning towards minimalist, each suite has smooth white floors and subtle lighting, with antique paintings and photos adorning the walls. Meals are enjoyed communally at various lovely settings throughout the property, crafted by a masterful team of chefs with organic produce from the estate.
Things to do at Shahpura Bagh include following the many trails which thread the property, boating on the lakes, swimming in the heated pool or interacting with the welcoming owners. If you can be tempted to leave the premises, explore a quaint nearby village dominated by a crumbling fort. You can also go bird-watching at any of the 250 lakes that dot the landscape or tour a working farm to experience rural Rajasthan.
