Planning to take four days off after a Mumbai business trip to visit Rajasthan, I came across Savista when I googled "boutique hotel Jaipur" and having read the reviews on this site immediately decided to base myself there. I could not have made a better choice, since I discovered not only the local village but many of the splendors of the region without once feeling rushed. Indeed I even took a rare day off: having reveled in fresh guavas and chili for breakfast before my Rajasthani massage, I spent time on the roof terrace reading books from the well-stocked library, then trundled round the village on the local camel cart, receiving gifts of sugar-sweet peas fresh from the field and spicy masala chai, before coming back to one of Savista's delicious multi-course vegetarian dinners served with a smile and spent discussing the charms and challenges of India.
Before that, the owners and staff had arranged a memorable drive for me from Delhi airport, taking in a never-to-be-forgotten sunrise at the Taj Mahal, followed by the extraordinary Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri. The same excellent driver helped me discover tourist-free gems in Amber village - which I found just as wonderful as the big monuments in Jaipur - as well as the amazing blockprinting workshop at Bagru and a fascinating factory for handmade paper near the airport.
Hard to believe this all happened in such a short time, and I can't wait to go back! Had I stayed in the city in Jaipur I would have missed out on an essential part of my excitement in discovering this amazing country.
