Hi, we travelled here from Gurgaon on 3rd August 2013 with family (6 Adults) for an outing. It took us about 4-5 hours by road as there are plenty of speed breakers on this stretch. This place is immediately after Piramal Gate. From outside you can hardly imagine there would be such a huge Haveli. When we reached the Haveli we happen to be the only guest along with another. We booked 3 rooms Pink Room, Green Room & Grey Room (If I remember correctly). All the rooms booked had AC's and are quite huge, nice and clean bedsheets. Rooms were absolutely clean and we had no complaints whatsoever. Pink room is the one which fascinated us a lot coz of lighting however Green room was huge along with Grey room. A room could easily accomodate 4 people as beds are huge. However, needs to be checked with management if they would allow. The haveli is very quite and you will see plenty of peacocks hopping places. The ambience overall is nice, the staff is very courteous and warm. We never faced any challenge on the staff front. The food they served was fantastic. We all just relished the food. Infact, we made special request with regards to cuisine and they warmly obliged. We had evening snacks , dinner and breakfast next morning.This is a quite place where in you can come and relax. The environment is very green and refreshing. This trip was a weekend getaway with family and stayed for 1 night. Absolutely recommended to all as this is the most affordable Neemrana property.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Baggar is the region of the painted havelis (mansions), where the Marwaris, India’s wealthiest community, originated and once lived. They were the merchant community of Rajasthan and traded treasures with caravans which passed this way on the Southern Silk Route, bartering silk with opium, porcelain with spices. From 1820 onwards they migrated to the ports of Calcutta and Bombay, to become intermediaries in the vast marine trade the British conducted at the height of their Pax Britannica. The Marwaris amassed huge fortunes, and even today control virtually every sector of the modern Indian economy. The Piramal Haveli in Baggar is a Rajasthani-Italianate villa in the desert and is Shekhavati’s closest hotel to Delhi. It was built in 1928 with a large open garden and two pillared courtyards painted with colourful kitsch frescoes of flying angels, airplanes, and gods in motor cars. These add a special charm to this mansion reflecting the British presence in Jaipur since 1803. The gate of the village, which is a part of the haveli, was built by Seth Piramal to welcome the Maharaja of Jaipur on elephant back. Serving the famed local vegetarian cuisine, the legendary Marwari thalis get seasoned gourmets guessing about the mysterious desert savours and spices which are in those little bowls ! This was the home of Seth Piramal Chaturbhuj Makharia from 1892 to 1958 whose fortune was made in Bombay, trading in cotton, opium, silver and other commodities. Walk out to Shekhavati’s painted streets – an open-air gallery of frescoes. Discover the lost villages – a fascinating adventure in itself, using Baggar as the base. As pillared corridors lead you into the past, the floors will tell their own chequered history. Have tea with the peacocks who are literally the house sparrows of The Piramal Haveli ! Be surprised with sudden colour among the monotony of the desert. When you stay at The Piramal Haveli you join Shekhavati’s fight to retain its magnificent heritage structures by making restoration a viable, self-sustainable tourism activity. ... more less
