The land of kings and palaces – Rajasthan – echoes tales of India's glorious past, the dynasties that ruled and their exploits at the war fields. These legends of time are brought back to life by royal heritage hotels. Standing grand amidst modern day Jaipur is Hotel Narain Niwas Palace, whose crest reads – “Brave deeds live, though bodies die”. Traditionally, ‘Niwas’ means a home of the royals.
Hotel Narain Niwas Palace is one of the finest heritage hotels of the princely state of Rajasthan, showcasing a good example of history amalgamating with modern times. Centrally located in Jaipur, the Pink City of India, the palace was built in the year 1928 by General Amar Singh Ji, the then Thakur of Kanota. Designed in the Anglo-Indian style popular in the victorian era, the palace, which served as the country resort for the Kanota royalty, is now one of the best heritage hotels one can witness in present times. Decorated with ethnic Indian furnishings, coupled with Rajput flourishing and traditional Jaipur-style painted wall decor in a typically bold color palette, Hotel Narain Niwas Palace provides an exclusive retreat to its guests.
As you enter, you are welcomed like a king or queen and have personal attendants waiting on you. The stay here is nothing short of king's life. The hotel has acres of beautiful gardens and orchards, which are refreshingly soothing to the mind and soul, for they take you away from the brick and mortar lives of the modern day. The high ceilings, exquisite chandeliers, four poster beds, ornate tapestry, and rose petals in bath tubs - all speak eloquently of Rajput elegance.
During your stay at this heritage hotel in Jaipur, you will discover the secret of the grandeur of the Rajput royalty, when you see the exquisitely decorated walls and ceilings that are fully covered with frescoes and paintings. The period furniture placed all over the hotel is more than a visual delight.
