This Haveli (traditional home, usually built around one or more open courtyards, often finely furnished and decorated, most remaining are from the 18th and 19th centuries) is a jewel that is being slowly and tastefully restored with an expert eye for authenticity and historical detail. The rooms were comfortable, the service was excellent. Unfortunately we stayed only one night, so... More

This old haveli is beautifully restored with lots of care and details and the whole story is even documented on an interesting walk through the place. Guests don't seem to do this place justice as they tend to stay one night only. We stayed three nights and had a great, relaxing holiday away from all the hustle and bustle of... More

Every nook and corner of this place is so pretty! The food is very good. Simple, but good. So many peacocks around this place. If you value your sleep beyond anything, it might be a bit troublesome as their cacophony is constant. If it doesn't bother you that much, you'll love it like I did! The service is excellent and...

Found Vivaana by chance. Great customer service right from the first telephone conversation to guiding us precisely to reach, accommodating the requests, neatness, smiling staff and their efforts.......etc. Food: Good food - but has space for improvement (in consistency of taste and quality). Overall a great effort by the owners - it shows !
