Stayed for 4 nights in Feb 2014. The service of the sun terrace restaurant and the Paantya restaurant was poor with longer waiting times. A bit outdated with facilities such as showers. I noticed on more than 1 occasion other travelers in the restaurant were rolling their eyes expressing surprise on the quality of the service such as mixing up... More

The hotel architecture is fabulous. You feel like you are staying in a local palace. Staff is trying to give the best. Very kind and friendly. Except that some of them are a little bit unexperienced. Rooms are nicely furnished. I enjoyed to take photos of this great hotel for several hours. Great place.

this hotel gives u a complete different feel.. the moment u enter inside the hotel , every corner of the property is worth seeing . every room has a different concept and every room is designed in its own individual way which gives u a feeling of a villa .

The lobby staff were absolute jerks, poorly trained and unorganized!!! The restaurant staff were terrible. After waiting for 30 MINUTES for a cup of coffee, ( which we never did receive), we decided to go to town to eat. We came from Canada on a holiday to India. Upon arrival, the front desk staff told us we could be a... More

I was on a business meet in Jaipur and my organization was generous enough to arrange our accommodation at this royal resort at the outskirt of Jaipur. It's a huge property built beside the Delhi-Jaipur highway and sure to catch your attention from the highway itself. The Rajasthani architecture, the resort staffs wearing those royal and traditional Rajasthani apparels will... More

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
