Such a beautiful hotel! Friendly staff, super clean & great food too. Quiet, peaceful and a place to find a bit of peace. Make sure you get to Nawalgarh - the best havelis are actually there, and not in Mandawa. It's about 30 minutes' drive and they have an super bazaar, which is mostly frequented by the locals, because the...

A beautiful, atmospheric, relaxing oasis near Mandawa. I would highly recommend this hotel. Service etc was excellent and staff wonderful but the highlight is the ability to stay in such a gorgeous old building. A real treat and the feeling that you are experiencing something really special. I could just about live here.

From what we found out - it took almost 5 years to convert the whole place. The haveli itself is located in a small village called...

Twenty-four rooms in this wonderfully, well updated Haveli, but none with a window. The rooms are well equipped and spotless, with all the modern conveniences, yet do have a slightly dark, claustrophobic feel. Stayed 4 days, and only on the 2nd day did I feel welcomed, as the staff initially felt somewhat stiff and overly serious. Discovered them to be...

We enjoyed our overnight stay in this beautiful haveli. Our room was very comfy, super clean and nicely appointed. There was a very informative display of photos showing the before and after restoration photos. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are touring the Shekhawati area.

The Vivaana Hotel is the only property for tourists in a rustic little village. It transports you to another age the instant you set foot in it. Exquisite but not ostentatious, heritage with a touch of contemporary- a pool and a spa. Large rooms with larger washrooms. Will certainly go again and highly recommend it to anyone travelling in Rajasthan.
