After being on the road travelling India & Bhutan for 3 weeks we were looking for a quiet restful break. Anopura is a tiny (2 room) inn about 35 kms outside Jaipur.
Anopura is like an oasis in the desert with everything so beautifully presented. The gardens are lovely & there is a wonderful pool area where you can relax & unwind. The rooms are comfortable but relaxed & Phillipe the owner has some of his beautiful Indian antiques & furniture decorating the rooms & eating areas.
The room tariff includes breakfast & dinners & the food is absolutely 1st class from the Indian to French & other gourmet delicacies.
Phillipe is a fascinating man who has previously been a diplomat. He has built Anopura to blend into the countryside & he has established his own vegetable & fruit garden. Phillipe also has contributed so much to the local little village of Anopura (same name). He has provided running water to every home & also toilets to the local school.
The staff at Anopura are all locals & they are wonderfully attentive & kind. They love Phillipe & proudly took as down to the village one morning. We had a lovely time with the locals & the kids were such fun.
To us this was a very special Indian experience that brought us into contact with the real rural India as well as treating us to a 5 star experience.
A special thank you to Phillipe & staff. Very highly recommended
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Anopura Jaipur Nestled within the fold of green hills, ours is a hidden, and thankfully forgotten, corner of the world. This is a land of timeless villages and nature in its purest form. Ours is a vision of simple, quiet luxuries, nurtured alongside the rhythm of the countryside. Of idyllic pursuits, reading and feasting, of sundrenched hours by the pool, verdant vistas and velvet nights spent in candlelight conversation with distant stars. Anopura is a secret hideaway, the far-flung fantasies borne of childhood memories. This luxurious retreat is the quiet Arcadia we call home. Home, your home. A petite collection of cottages and courtyards, of private pools and thoughtful butlers; here lies the charm of Anopura, where every need is so perfectly anticipated. Here hours fade into days and lives lived in traffic and deadlines seem to slip into golden oblivion. If there is Paradise on earth, it is this, it is this, it is this. ... more less
