In Urdu, dera alludes to a setting for short-term dwelling, which Jaipur's Dera Mandawa seamlessly offers. A short stroll away from the beautified 'Pink City', Dera Mandawa are for those looking for a luxurious stay but with a homey feel. Run by the Singh family, the hotel serves premium Rajasthani hospitality.
Their eight suites offer a calm retreat away from the city's chaos with their central courtyard and lush garden. The décor here is composed of rich colours and traditional Indian furnishings but with all modern amenities.
Take serenity even further by sharing afternoon tea with your travel companion or energising yourself with homemade breakfast meals at the colonially styled courtyard.
Our recommendation is a cup of fragrant masala tea or the chickpea pancakes. If you feel you can't live without knowing how to make these delights, the Singh family also offers cooking classes.
Upon request, traditional Rajasthani gala evenings can be arranged. These gala evenings are filled with music, dance, kite flying, henna art and saree/saafa tying – a night not to forget.
For those looking to explore Jaipur, the accommodation is 15-minutes away from popular attractions such as the City Palace Museum, HawaMahal, Astronomical Observatory, Jantar Mantar and the Railway Station. If you want to do your own self-exploration a cycle rickshaw or day taxi can be arranged.
