Bundi accommodation - Bundi Vilas
Located in a steep narrow alleyway leading up from a maze of streets, through an old stone archway and up a flight of steps the only way to get to Bundi Vilas is on foot. It feels the most appropriate way to enter this little 300 year old haveli sitting right beneath the walls of Bundi Palace.
On arrival you will be greeted with a warm welcome by the family who turn this property from heritage hotel to a home away from home. Arun takes sincere care of guests while his sister and mother rustle up tasty Rajasthani cuisine. From the kitchen on the ground floor a young waiter dashes up several flights of stairs to serve your meal on the roof terrace. There’s nowhere else to dine which is not ideal on a cold winter night, but wrap up well and you won’t regret it. The views of the palace behind, blue painted houses and the Jait Sagar lake below and the Arvalli hills topped with crenulated walls beyond are superb.
The seven renovated rooms are fairly snug but have wonderful features such as stone arches, hand carved wooden doors and jarokhas with cushions to make them into comfortable window seats. Compact modern shower rooms, air-conditioning and tea and coffee making facilities bring your stay into the 21st century.
What it lacks in facilities Bundi Vilas fills with bags of character and its location in the old town means you don’t waste time travelling around by car to get to places of interest – they are all around you and beg explored on foot.
