I don't remember how I stumbled upon Savista while researching our trip to India...but I'm so glad I did. It was a fun and lovely stay. We chose to stay on a 3 night package. This included a driver all 3 days, as well as airport/train station transfer.
The food was great. Our hosts were wonderful. The setting is serene. My wife enjoyed doing yoga. I watched some Indian films and had a whisky in their home theater. One day it started to rain before heading over to the dining area for a meal. They had placed two umbrellas right outside our door for us. A nice touch. All in all it was a lovely experience.
It's worth noting that Savista is a solid 30-45 minute drive outside of Jaipur. So plan accordingly. We were happy to not stay inside the city though.
The negative: The sheets on the bed were a bit stiff, like sleeping on paper. Also, this place runs a little bit more like a home than a hotel. The service is just not as efficient at times as a hotel. But as long as you are aware of that, it's not a problem.
All in all a great stay that I would recommend to just about anybody. I wish we had one more day to spend at Savista to explore some of the activities they offered. Be sure to check out their website.
