Savista Retreat has only been open less than a year. The owners have been renovating the maginificent old building for 7 years. It is 45 mins from Jaipur in the countryside. The setting is great, it is peaceful and there are plenty of birds to see. The problem is the place is not yet up to speed. At $200 Australian dollars a night, the place is expensive. Once the quality of the service has improved, the owners can justify the price. But not yet. For example, we were lured by the idea of a swimming pool, but the pool only had 2 feet of water in it, and the surface of the water was covered in bird droppings and feathers. Apparently they have pump problems
( electricity is rationed in the countryside), but if you are going to charge top dollar, you have to have a full swimming pool. There is no service desk or reception, so it is not always easy to find a staff member if you want a drink or snack. The food is adequate, nothing more. The hosts were charming and the ambience great. It's a pity they have opened their doors to guests before they have got the service to match their prices. We'll try again in another year.
