Description: Savista is a boutique heritage resort in Jaipur. Nestled in the Rajasthan countryside, this estate of an erstwhile Kacchawa Rajput chieftain combines the luxury of a traditional haveli with state-of-the-art amenities and a modern ethos of eco-friendly travel. The lush green Savista estate is only 22 km from Jaipur’s city center and en route to Amber Fort, Pushkar and Ajmer. Daily transportation services offered to and from the airport, city center and sights make it an ideal base for sightseeing in and around Jaipur. Savista offers 16 elegantly-designed and comfortable guest-rooms, to make every guest feel special and well looked-after. All have ensuite bathrooms (with shower), are air-conditioned, and have heating for the winter months. A few select rooms have fire-places. Every room has either an attached balcony, private sun terrace or atrium. Each room is distinctively designed, with a mix of handcrafted antique and modern furniture, textiles in the vibrant colours of Rajasthan, and handpicked objets d’arts. Every room has a unique theme and a name drawn from nature. Rooms are classified into Premium and Superior. Click on room names for pictures. Premium Rooms Kesar Kesar is the local name for saffron. This folky Rajasthani room reflects the sun-kissed desert – soft furnishings in flaming saffron and deep red, and wall and doorway decorations in folk motifs. With a king-sized bed and adjacent large atrium, this room overlooks the garden and rising sun. Lapis Lazuli The décor for this room is a mosaic of different shades of blue, complemented by an antique Rajasthani king-sized bed and elaborately carved wardrobe. With an additional sitting room and outdoor balcony, this room overlooks a garden, a grove of khejri trees and undulating cropland. Khejri The green and yellow colours of the khejri, - iconic tree of Rajasthan - find their echo in this light filled room on the first floor. Its other features include: antique teak furniture, a cozy fireplace, windows overlooking fields and a balcony overhanging the pool. Indigo With white adobe floors and soft furnishings in deep indigo, this room has a blend of traditional wooden and modern wrought-iron furniture. Situated on the upper level with a balcony overlooking the pool, it has a king-sized bed, traditional wardrobe, and cozy fireplace. Jasmine A large room on the upper level, the all-white décor – redolent of jasmine - is a counterpoint to the deep copper hues of the four-poster king bed, and traditional Rajasthani furniture. It has a fireplace, windows overlooking tree tops and green fields, and a balcony that hangs over the pool. An excellent choice as a honeymooners’ hideaway. Mayura Pale aquamarine, deep green and brilliant blue soft furnishings,– the hues of the peacock, bird of Rajasthan, from which the room takes its name – complement the traditional Rajasthani muted-green hand-painted furniture in this room. Situated on the first level, the room’s unique feature is two private open terraces that overlook fields of wheat, mustard and pulses, and a large deck overlooking the pool. Gulaabo Pink is one of the defining colours of Rajasthan, and Gulaabo is a name given to both men and women in the region. This large cool room on the ground floor celebrates Jaipur’s pink theme and block-printing craft, reflected in both the soft furnishings and furniture (antique carved king bed and wardrobe, imaginatively designed coffee tables). French windows overlook gardens and fields of wheat and maize on one side, while a balcony opens out into the pool-court on the other. Nimbuda The lime is a prized fruit in Rajasthan, given its cooling properties, and addressed affectionately in folklore as Nimbuda (the Savista farm has over a hundred lime trees). This spacious tubular room on the ground floor has a modern décor and the coolest of lime green interiors. The green theme blends seamlessly with the luminous green landscape that comes right up to the two large French windows and many smaller windows: groves of neem, khejri and lesva trees. A pool-side balcony anchors the room to the haveli. Superior Rooms Parijat Celebrated in Indian folklore, the aromatic Parijat flower is the inspiration for this garden room. A mango tree growing outside also begs to be included in the conception of the décor: a fusion of glowing pink, magenta and mango yellow, offset by silver grey. This is our only twin bedroom. A small glass enclosed sitting room is an addition, leading to the garden and the fields beyond. Bhaskara Bhaskara is one of the many Sanskrit names for the sun. The colours here, in brilliant yellow and silvery white, are a homage to the sun and moon. Large French windows across two walls open out into a grove of shady neem trees, and the balcony leads to the pool. This spacious tubular room has a modern décor, with a wrought iron king bed. Terracotta A spacious poolside room with French windows opening out onto a leafy arbor of karanji trees, the décor is a blend of wood-carved and painted antique Rajasthani furniture, with soft furnishings in orange and brick-red, offset by brilliant blue. Kachnaar Named after the flower of the Kachnaar tree, this small cozy upper level room with king bed has mirror-worked embroidered soft furnishings in brilliant shades of red and hot pink. The room is poised between the great outdoors: its own large private sun terrace on one side infused with the aroma of nearby flowering plants and providing a vista of tree-tops; and on the other side an open deck overlooking the pool. Sujalam Named after the old river that used to flow alongside the Savista estate, this room overlooks the dramatic jagged wooded ravines of this former tributary. It has a simple double bed and mix of modern and old Rajasthani furniture. The soft furnishings are in traditional deep red and black, and reflect pastoral weaves from western Rajasthan and hand-block prints from Bagru, an ancient artisan village 10 km from Savista. It has a balcony overlooking the pool. Gulmohur The orange, fuchsia and warm mustard décor of this room, reflected in the hand-painted flowers on the traditional Rajasthani bed and wardrobe, is inspired by the flowering gulmohur trees of the region. The room has its own private sun terrace that overlooks a garden, trees, and gently rolling fields. The food is simple, tasty home cooking –a blend of north and south Indian and Rajasthani, vegetarian and non-vegetarian– using organically grown, locally sourced ingredients. Breakfast is generally served under a canopy of trees. Lunch and dinner may be al fresco or in the dining room, according to the weather. Snacks and drinks are available through the day by the poolside. The bar-lounge with its crackling fireplace offers an alternative social setting on cold evenings. Health Centre A low-slung complex, separate from the haveli and hidden behind a curtain of trees, houses Savista’s health centre. The wellness facilities include the local Rajasthani massage, and steam-sauna-jacuzzi. Yoga Whether you are an enthusiast or an eager-to-learn entrant, you will find that the peace and stillness at Savista offers you an excellent environment in which to hone your yoga practice. The rooftop, lawns, amphitheatre or indoor lounges - the choice of location is yours. Our resident yoga teacher would be happy to put entrants through their paces (ashtanga vinyasa yoga), and also introduce them to simple and joyful methods to de-stress through breathing (pranayama) and laughter (hasya yoga). Fitness Savista’s fitness facilities include a gym, tennis court and swimming pool. The gym is fitted out with a range of both cardiovascular and weight training machines; tennis rackets and balls are available upon request. In addition, guests will find the estate’s outer rim a perfect track for a morning or evening jog. Natural living Most of the vegetables, cereals and pulses used at Savista are organically grown in and around the Savista estate without the aid of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. The milch animals that provide milk for Savista are fed pesticide-free green fodder, our spices are freshly ground every day, the butter is home-churned and unsalted, and the sparingly-used cooking oil is cold-pressed. Poultry, meat and eggs are procured from surrounding farms where they are reared in a natural environment. The water for drinking, cooking, swimming and irrigation is drawn from Savista's own deep-bore wells. The water is sweet, refreshing and mineral-rich, and laboratory tests have confirmed its excellent mineral-water quality and safety. Rest & relaxation The groves of neem, khejri and fruit trees at Savista filter and cool the unpolluted breezes that waft across the sun-drenched landscape. Sunlight there is in plenty in Rajasthan, and the choice is yours to soak it in by the poolside or in the privacy of the terraces, or to luxuriate in hammocks under the spreading branches of the trees. In addition to facilitating visits to monuments and temples, Savista offers its guests the opportunity of authentic glimpses into both the folk and classical performance culture of the region. The Savista amphitheatre occasionally hosts folk music and dance performances by local travelling artistes. These include bhopas, hereditary story-tellers who use music to tell stories of Rajasthan’s folk heroes Pabuji and Tejaji, with the help of traditional handpainted cloth scrolls (pichwais) depicting these heroes’ lives. The music room at Savista has a collection of Indian musical instruments such as the veena, sitar, harmonium, and tanpura, and CDs (Indian classical, semi-classical and folk), as well as select western instruments such as the violin, guitar, electronic keyboard, and harmonica. There is also a rich collection of books on the classical and folk music traditions of Northern and Southern India. Upon request, Savista offers individual cooking lessons. Extended cooking workshops can also be arranged for small groups, that explore the theory and practice of India’s culinary traditions, with accompanying discussions on the Ayurvedic principles of traditional diets, and study visits to vegetable and spice markets. Savista also responds to requests for other interest-based workshops/retreats, such as India’s textile traditions, embroidery, yoga or music.
