The UNESCO World Heritage site of Amber Fort is only a stone’s throw away from the haveli. One of India’s most spectacular forts, this architectural wonder’s fairy-tale grandeur is a feast for the eyes with ancient ramparts, temples and stunning frescos. There is also a plethora of excellent hikes with breath-taking views. Maota Lake (the Fort’s main water source) is a fantastic place to visit, too. Offering the best of both worlds, the enthralling splendours of Jaipur City, India’s most colourful state, are also just a short drive away.
Surya Haveli’s uniqueness spills over into the amazing experiences they offer. During the day, guests can enjoy fascinating locally-led walking tours, exploring ancient havelis, temples and the block-print museum or see a ‘hidden’ Jaipur known only to locals. Then, as the sun nears the horizon, and the last of the day trippers leave Amber Fort, guests can stargaze and relax on Surya Haveli’s Sky Amber Roof Terrace while savouring the heritage hotel’s hospitality and beguiling beauty of Amber Fort. Balcony alcoves and other secret spots throughout the haveli offer lovely intimate dining spots.
