Located about 25 kms from Mandawa, Nawalgarh has some of the finest frescos and painted havelis in the Shekhawati region. Some of the havelis worth seeing here are Anandi... More

I think we were given the best room in the Haveli as it was enormous with a huge high four poster bed. The unfortunate thing was the bed was a little too hard for our liking. We would have given this five stars if there had been wifi freely available throughout the building. It was only available in the office... More

We stayed at Mandawa and drove to Nawalgarh. Glad we covered Nawalgarh and stopped at Koolwal for lunch. We spent 3-4 hours here. Had lunch in the beautiful manicured garden. The old haveli is magnificent with beautiful antique furniture. I loved the brass fans and chandelier. Even the newly constructed replica was nice. Food was good except for the french... More

we spent 2 nights here to explore the havelis of Shekhawati. What a delightful hotel - and a lovely heritage room, furnished with old period furniture - and a well appointed en-suite.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Koolwal Kothi is an impressive heritage building in Nawalgarh. With its monumental façade and combination of traditional and European elements, it is a good representative of British colonial architecture in India. It was constructed in 1934, during the time of Anandi Lal ji Hemraj Ji Koolwal. It has a magnificent frontage with stucco decorative colonnades and a series of rooms organized around a central hall. It deviates from the traditional courtyard house planning of the region. Stylistically too, it has more stucco work with very few external fresco paintings, which are otherwise typical to this region. It is very unique in this respect. The main building is a tow – storied structure with frontal triple arched verandah openings and crowning parapets with decorative urns. The interiors are simple with very little decoration in the rooms. However, the emphasis is on bold and bright colors, and the openings are extenuated with multicolor borders or floral motifs, at times emulating tile or stonewall The Kothi has 18 individually designed Deluxe Rooms. where one can witness and live like how the Maharajas used to. You will find the Kothi with antique furniture and a lot of importance has been given to detail to recreate life as it was almost 80-100 years ago. In the Nawalgarh, Koolwal Kothi offers visitors the elegance of a small Rajasthan Palace- like residence with all the comforts of a Heritage Hotel. It captures the charm of the princely city that was built in accordance with the ancient Hindu treatise.Set in a lovely garden, flanking the spacious green roundabout at a corner of Nawalgarh, the Hotel is a few minutes’ drive away from the walled city.With the Hotel Koolwal kothi as base, explore Beautiful surrounding Havelies (e.g. Poddar Museum, Morarka Haveli, Seksheriya Haveli, Jaipuria Haveli, etc), Famous Temples (Salasar Hanuman Ji, Rani Sati Temple, Khatu shyam Ji etc), Famous Destinations (e.g. Mandava, Fathepur, Ramgarh, etc), Taal Chapar (Famous Wild Life Sanctuary)The Kothi is currently owned by Mr. Praveen Khandelwal, one of the descendants of the Koolwal family. The heritage building had been locked and neglected for most of the last 40years. Today the Kothi is a successful heritage hotel run by WelcomHeritage, keeping alive the charming traditions and hospitality in the Shekhawati region. ... more   less
