One of the Best Affordable Unique Boutique Hotels in Jaipur

December 6, 2017 4 comments

I’ve experienced some of the most amazing hospitality of my life in India. So naturally I was excited about selecting hotels in Jaipur; I knew an unforgettable experience was awaiting me. On this visit, we chose to stay at a lovely family owned boutique hotel: the Pearl Palace Heritage.

Attention to Detail

When we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by how charming it was. The ornate entryway was an inviting indication of the intricate decor in the rest of the hotel. In fact, a team of local and international artisans spends about 3 years to complete each hotel suite. The bedrooms are uniquely designed as an ode to a specific place in India. The room we stayed in, known as the Kutch suite, showcased the beauty and culture of Gujarat.

Our hotel felt like a thoughtfully curated museum with art and treasures collected over the years. So many things caught my eye. The vibrant red walls along the staircase were framed with vintage pictures of Indian royals, each one more decadently attired than the next. Whimsical patterns were inlaid or painted in everything from the marble floors to the entry’s walls and even the hallways. And each guest room door was carved differently.

Part of the guest house is still home to the family that owns it. The building was converted into a hotel and maintains that homey feel. For example, our breakfast was served in the downstairs kitchen where we enjoyed fresh masala chai and spiced omelets and even shared breakfast with the hotel’s owner.

Adjoining the kitchen was the sitting room, a parlor fit for a queen. Its peacock theme was imbued with rich hues of teal and pink, making it a charming spot for afternoon tea.

The Kutch Suite

Our bedroom was a marvel to behold. An intricate carving of daily life in Kutch hung over the comfortable twin beds. The walls sparkled with little mirrors reflecting the light of the sun during the day and the moon at night. After seeing the exquisite bedroom decor, we knew we made the right choice amongst the hotels in Jaipur.

Peacock Rooftop Restaurant

One of the best parts of our experience at Pearl Palace Heritage was the food. On the first night, we visited Peacock Rooftop Restaurant, the hotel’s dining establishment. The fresh air, tabla players, and lively atmosphere set the scene for a chill evening. The menu had every possible cuisine you could crave. That first night we enjoyed a selection of comfort Indian food. On our last night, we ordered Indo-Chinese for room service. A steaming hot tray of hot and sour soup, sichuan wings, garlic prawns, manchurian noodles, spring rolls and more arrived. After a particularly arduous day of sightseeing, we deserved it and ate to our hearts content.

Inde Rooh

The Pearl Palace Heritage also has their own line of chic and comfortable cotton clothing. Inde Rooh styles feature traditional block printing and dye techniques of the region. You can find affordable pieces there for around $25 USD. They’re perfect to wear for touring around the city and will keep you cool for hours in the hot, dry climate.

The shop offers clothing for men and women as well as textiles for the home. I have two dresses c/o Inde Rooh and I adore them. If they had a store in the US, I’d shop there all of the time.
