“The present owner’s grandfather built this elegant heritage property in 1928 as a retreat from his busy State life within the walled city. Once large enough for hunting and pig-sticking, the property now stands in 10 acres of mature garden, close to the city centre. The 38 large and comfortable rooms and suites are ornately decorated with Rajput arches and dark furniture. Indian and multi-national cuisine and special ‘Silver Thali’ dining. There is a beautiful pool and a Spa in the garden.”

“Hotel Narain Niwas Palace is one of the finest heritage hotels of the princely state of Rajasthan, providing a good example of history amalgamating with modern times.
Centrally located in Jaipur, the Pink City of India, the palace was built in the year 1928 by General Amar Singh Ji, the then Thakur of Kanota. Designed in the Anglo-Indian style popular in the victorian era, the palace, which served as the country resort for the Kanota royalty, is now one of the best heritage hotel one can witness in present times. Decorated with ethnic Indian furnishings, coupled with Rajput flourishing and traditional Jaipur-style painted wall décor in a typically bold color palette, Hotel Narain Niwas Palace provides an exclusive retreat to its guests.
During your stay at the Narain Niwas Palace heritage hotel, you will discover the secret of the grandeur of the Rajput royalty, when you see the exquisitely decorated walls and ceilings that are fully covered with frescoes and paintings. The period furniture placed all over the hotel is more than a visual delight.
All the 37 well-appointed rooms and suites at Narain Niwas Palace are completely air-conditioned and equipped with all the modern amenities such as attached washrooms, telephones, television, safety lockers, laundry, private vehicle parking facility and more. This heritage hotel is truly a place where one can enjoy traditional Rajput hospitality.”
