Everything about this property is royal ! Just before you enter the lobby, there is music for your ears - with melodious musicians sitting at the entrance, extending a musical welcome, which picks up as soon as you enter. Then, there is Mr. Jacque - the representative of the Management, who with his warmth, etiquette and professional approach, extends a... More

The entire Place was booked in June 2014 for the two day event in December. Hotel management engaged with us all through out with various meetings and menu finalization. The check-in was smooth. Rooms were clean and had no issues during the two days. I heard no complaints from my guests in this regard. All marriage rituals such as Mehndi,... More

We had an offsite event last week in this hotel and it has been a successful one due to the hospitality and services extended to my team and all the customers. The food was one of the highlights of the event and had been specially prepared keeping the rajasthani taste in mind. The decor and the set up of the... More

If you want to experience a destination resort, stay away from this place. This is incredibly gaudy. Food is terrible. The rooms have a painful central console for power. The bed is hard. The pillows are musty. The bathroom and the room is very dark. And the toiletries are poor. So why would you stay and pay five star resort... More

The Shiv Vila is a grandiose hotel that takes your breath away when you first enter. But that;s it. The room was small for such a grand place and of the marble in the bathroom walls was missing chunks of it. The food was pitiful; rolls hard as a rock, run of the mill desserts and overall and the fish... More

I want to start with the review by thanking Mr. Jacque Franze for inviting me to visit the property. I travel around the world and been to some amazing and luxurious properties but still I was amazed and mesmerized seeing how beautifully the hotel has been created. From architecture point of view it’s a blend of Rajputana and European architecture... More

Went over for a night stay to celebrate my Wife Birthday and great to see a recommendable effort by each and every members at hotel. Thanks to Jacque who had allowed me to organize a surprise trip under a short call. Had a smiley shower at entrance by Associates and turned up each and every movement into a great memorable...
