Historically used by the Samode family for private retreats, Samode Bagh is idyllic and unusual, more haven than hotel.
Built 250 years ago by Rawal Sheo Singh ji, son of the Pritviraj Singh Ji of Amber, the Samode Bagh was known as Sheo Niwas Bagh. Modeled on the geometric style of a Mughal garden, members of the Samode Royal family came here to enjoy rare moments of privacy.
Deceptively simple-looking at first glance, the 44 dune-coloured tented tops are spacious, inviting and attractively furnished.
Air-conditioned comfort and all contemporary conveniences in the rooms and en-suite marble bathrooms would have you forget this was a tent, until you glance up at the muslin ceiling printed with floral motifs in gold that reach up to a tented peak. Each room has a sit-out where one can relax and read.
The main dining pavilion is a warm hub that serves royal Rajasthani and international cuisine.
Rajasthani food, music, song and dance are perfect accompaniments to the natural grandeur that overtakes your senses.
