Santha Bagh
Ranked #146 of 393 Hotels in Jaipur
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Hanuwaut's gracious space is a joy to be in after the rigours of travel in India. The extensive house and glorious garden (with swimming pool) is located up a quiet cul-de-sac a short ride from the old Pink City.
We stayed 3 nights in a large and simple room drifting between it, the garden and a quiet courtyard outside our door. We took breakfast on the lawn every day, watching and listening to the varied bird life and the strategic manoeuvres of the Peacocks. One morning I walked out into a full symphony of birdsong from the trees in and round the garden. A joy!
We had intriguing, humourous conversations with Hanuwaut which often started with a question about the family heirlooms found around the house and lead to unexpected, even magical, insights and speculation!
A couple of evenings we ate in, pre-ordering an hour or so before. Everything we ate was freshly cooked, distinctive and well presented.
We are always happiest in family-run guesthouses and hotels. The quality of information and personal attention we receive in such places adds an important dimension to our travels and Santha Bagh is an outstanding example of these oases.
We will certainly return there and I recommend to anyone reading this who shares our tastes that you make it your first choice.
Many thanks to you Hanuwaut and to your team for caring for us so well.

I've stayed in Santha Bagh several times already and I keep coming back. It's such a pleasure to wake up from the sounds of the peacocks instead of the sound of traffic.
The staff is friendly, as is the owner, who's always interested in having a chat and talking about the rich history of India.
Best thing is the lovely garden which is visited by many birds, including 3 lovely, small owls. An oasis of rest in this busy city.
The location is good too. It's walking distance to town (some may not agree with me here, but rikshas are readily available for those ;-)) and close to the bus stop to and from Delhi.
Don't come here if you want to be followed and pampered every minute of the day, come here if you want privacy and relaxation.

Room Tip: All rooms are roomy and equipped with air conditioner. Haven't had a bad room yet.

It's so good to be here again! The BEST place ever in Jaipur.
If you don't believe me try for yourself. Quiet athmosphere, very friendly staff with intelligent chat about the history of India. Also try to enjoy the garden with at least 10 peacocks and 3 little owls

Room Tip: Ask for room 101, 102

Santha Bagh hotel well known as excellent family hotel in Jaipur, located close to railway station and offering home feeling environment. The stunning garden, delicious food and comfort swimming pool of the Santha Bagh able to win the heart of holidaymakers.


Three months before I had booked three rooms for my family vacation through one of the Delhi based travel agent called Tours North India (www.toursnorthindia.com). If you like my experience and want to stay in budget you can freely contact this agent.
