I visited just for a couple of nights and was floored by the magnificent architecture. The food and service was very mediocre for such a hotel. The washrooms had rusty taps and almost broken toilet seat. It is not the best place for a single traveller.

Beautiful property, exquisitely designed. The rooms look wonderful, each one designed individually, are extremely comfortable and really well maintained, the atrium is almost a museum. Right from the royal welcome at the gates to the little chocolates in the room, it's a great place to stay at. The best part though is the service. You're treated like royalty, and the... More

I visited the hotel in april 2014 for my cousin's marriage and the stay was just great. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The interior is quite amazing. The con is that its a bit far from Jaipur city so if you are looking fr a holiday den its per destination.

So elegant, comfortable, & meet to the purposes. Excellent. I could define my purpose of stay. It's a place where i had a feeling of both palatial & modern. Quality of food & services are matching to the class of expectation.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Creation of this palatial structure took us a full Six years and we opened our gates to receive our distinguished guests from October 20, 2006 onwards. The hotels exterior is reminiscent of the palaces of Rajasthan featuring huge frescoes hand carved meticulously in ‘pink sandstone’ and white marble. The hotel is dazzling white by day & turns sunset yellow by night with our illumination providing the guests a spectacular view from all angles. Adding to the hotels grandeur is the magnificent ‘atrium’ lobby which reveals sheer grandeur. The interiors are a fusion of the Victorian, Persian & Mughal architecture. Combining the latest technology with a long-standing reputation of Indian hospitality, “Shiv Vilas” symbolizes the very essence of Indian Culture, embracing the best of the new alongside traditions of the past. ... more   less
