Heritage and History in the Pink City

Heritage and History in the Pink City

What do you look for post a friend’s hectic wedding? A well equipped suite with relaxed views, food to cure the over eating at the wedding, a spa, basically a relaxed setting with people wanting to take care of you at all times. And that’s exactly what I found during my stay with Traditional and Sirsi Haveli of the WelcomHeritage group. The Traditional Haveli was constructed way back in 1940 and it was only later in 1958 that the property was sold to Badiyal Thakur who started using it to welcome guests. Finally about three years ago, the present owner Mr Dinesh Goyal collaborated with the WelcomHeritage group and converted the Haveli into a gorgeous, fully equipped, traveller friendly hotel.

Sirsi Haveli on the other hand has retained its rustic charm, which is noticeable right from its location in the midst of Sirsi village and further extending to its ambience. A walk around the property and the rustic interiors take you in almost immediately but not without a hint of modernism.

After a scrumptious lunch at Zaika, Traditional Haveli’s multi cuisine restaurant, we started exploring the property which is a gorgeous mix of old and contemporary. The property has 24 rooms of which 75% is double occupancy and the rest is triple. Each room comes with a mini bar, an LED TV, tea/coffee makers etc. At any given time, you will find mostly foreigners staying at the property which can also be credited to the hotel’s proximity to the railway station and airport. Towards evening, we decided to lounge at the roof top bar which offers a nice view of the city. However, if you’re completely tired from your routine, you can always make a dash to the fully operational “O” Thai spa for a rejuvenating spa session.

If you do decide to step out of the property, you can always visit the many bazaars, forts like Hawa Mahal, Nahargarh fort, Jaigarh, Amer fort and so on. Having absorbed our share of city life, we decided to spend the second day at Sirsi Haveli. Our room here was in the vintage section of the hotel, an area that has remained untouched. The rooms in the section have retained their 100 year old heritage in every aspect, be it the beds, the lights, the artefacts or the small library which offers a varied collection of books. Adding a modern touch to this otherwise rustic setup is a pool, marble flooring, the variety of cuisines available at Jiman, the multi cuisine restaurant. The property has a total of 23 rooms of which 7 are suites and the rest are deluxe rooms. With a spacious double deluxe room to ourselves, we decided to spend the evening indoors exploring the property and enjoying a rural slice of the Pink city.

With all the village serenity around us, we were lulled into sleep and before we realized, it was time for us to leave for the city again next morning. But if you’re planning on taking a quick break to Jaipur and looking for a reasonable priced hotel, WelcomHeritage could be your choice.
