Jaipur Hotel

There are loads of beautiful hotels in Jaipur. I’ll do a post on a heritage hotel later… but first I want to show you the Holiday Inn Jaipur – not only because we stayed there… but for the following reasons -
The courtyard was beyond impressive!! I have a soft corner for courtyards and this totally took my heart away -
The view from the top -
This was always filled with flowers -
Another view of the courtyard …
There were flowers everywhere…
And paintings adorned very wall … of kings & queens …
This is the wall at the entrance of the hotel… I heart this wall… its beautiful…
A closer look… I’m going to do this (below) on a small wall in my home for sure.
If anyone of you has the guidelines on how to go about with this, what materials to use, etc, please email me on


  1. I also just returedn from Jaipur. We stayed at Shiv Vilas, which is also a magnificent property. Did you get to go to Taj Rambagh? It is unbelievably beautiful! I fell in love with the place!

    The mirror work wall sounds like a great idea.

  13. The mirror work looks so beautiful... I'd love to try, too... Maybe painted papier-mâché will do. Thank you for sharing all those beautiful pictures!

  14. jaipur sounds like, one blink and you miss somehting beautiful. I've read so many posts on jaipur- each one fascinating and colourful. Especially their heritage hotels. So lucky u went there to see this with your own eyes. I have to be satified seeing it through your lenses.

  15. Really a beautiful place for tourist accommodation. i will be waiting for your posting on heritage hotels in Jaipur.

  16. This work is called lipan work. Its done using mseal or ceramic powder too can be used as a variant. It is done on mdf board. U can google on lipan work, i am sure the procedure will be explained.I am yet to try it out.

  17. Thanks for writing about your Jaipur travel experience. The Pink city is definitely worth visiting once..For budget accommodation, one can chose to stay at Golden Hotel Jaipur, one of the best budget hotel.


I love to hear from you.... Thank you for leaving me a note!
