We have recently returned from our second stay at Shanti Home, and somehow I don't think it will be our last. From the moment you enter into the tranquil, beautifully decorated grounds (you are greeted with a cold, refreshing beverage, which is heaven after the blistering heat), you feel at home. There seems to be no guest request that is too much for Rajat and his gracious staff to take care of. As an example, I left some medication in my room, emailed Rajat, and received a package in Goa a few days later. Incredible service, exceeding all expectations!
While in Delhi, we normally book the Shanti Home packages, which offer excellent value (and friendly English-speaking drivers). The vehicles are clean and have A/C if you'd like. It is well worth it to take advantage of these offerings--you can see much of Delhi in a day, if you time things correctly... we did... twice! Also, the trip to Agra (while long) was incredibly memorable... this monument will simply take your breath away. Make sure and stop by the 'famous' Petha (Indian sweet) shop along the main highway just outside of Agra.
The rooms at Shanti Home are spacious and well-cared for (not to mention spotless). We have stayed in both the Calcutta and the Bollywood rooms--lighting, water pressure, the A/C: perfect! Free WiFi was also a bonus (worked on our iphones). Also, the Lantern restaurant is a MUST. Not only is the food tasty and fresh, but the service is so attentive and warm. Although we enjoyed Delhi restaurants (and gelaterias) by day, we always seemed to have dinner at the Lantern!
In summary, Shanti Home has truly become our second home in Delhi: I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. Thank you, Rajat and colleagues for taking such good care of us! We hope to see you one day soon. Namaste!
