Chokhi Dhani Village Resort, Jaipur

the play of shadows

I have a few posts lined up from our Jaipur Trip. This one is the first of the lot. We went to Chokhi Dhani , Jaipur,Β for the 2nd time. It is a 5 Star Village Resort. There are 3 kind of rooms available in the resort- Cottage, Royal Cottage and Haveli Suite. The first time we stayed in a cottage suite, which had a beautiful little terrace a few steps down from the room. This time we stayed in a Haveli Suite, which is the grandest of the lot. The room was set up in a lovely Haveli kind of setting. The room had those old style heavy wooden doors, pretty jarokhas and a stunning 4 poster bed.Β DefinitelyΒ worth a stay.Β 

If you are staying at Chokhi Dhani, a few things you have to try. A drink at Chandi Bar. Evening snacks at the Kesar Kyari. A long walk in the luscious lawns of the resort. Chokhi Dhani Village Festival. A ride on a camel or an elephant. The puppet show. Spare a few moments to watch the local dance. And most important, don’t miss the low setting full on Rajasthani Feast.

Sharing some of the stunning clicks clicked by Mr Husband of the place. πŸ™‚

    Hi dear rati… Thanx fo lovely info n beautiful pics.. Plz can u advise how much it cost to u if u don’t mind n hw waz yr experience about food facilities .. N if u reach Jaipur wht v have to say to go to ths particular place where u stayed thanx

    • Rati says:

      The food was really good both at the restaurant and at the village fair. You may ask the hotel to give you a pick up from airport or railway station. They charge you for it but since the place is located in the outskirts of the city, it’s best that someone comes to pick you up. You may check out the rates HERE :

      Try negotiating. Good luck! πŸ™‚

    Stunning pics of the place Rati! And they make everyone click a pic with that turban on their heads dont they, we have been to Choki Dhani thrice and we have 3 pics in the same pose πŸ˜€
    I just love the place and the ambience and the food is to die for isnt it? I love how the camera has captured the dancers and the essence of the entire village – you just brightened up my day with these pics! And Sanjeev if you are reading this, your photographs are in a league of their own!

    • Rati says:

      loll!! i know. Now we have two of them in same pose. πŸ˜› But I havent seen such hospitality anywhere so far. Rajasthan beats everyone hands down in that aspect. :)) thank you. :))

  12. Ritika says:

    But I am more sad about the leaving part, its such a peaceful city. Might go back for holi πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    PS : You should definitely visit Jaisalmer too, there are resorts in the desert !
