Traditional Rajasthani decor with a contemporary twist.....Suryagarh, Jaisalmer

I was watching Master Chef - India - Season 2 and saw the contestants cooking in the kitchens of this gorgeous hotel, SURYAGARH in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, India. This reminded me of my recent trip to Rajasthan and our stay at this hotel. I decided to do a quick post  with some of my personal picture collection.
Jaisalmer, also known as "The Golden City" is very popular and  a dream destination to many tourists.

This hotel is also built using yellow sandstone to preserve the tradition of Jaisalmer.

This super-luxury hotel has an entrance with a typical medieval fort look.
The Neo-classical Reception and the Lounge areas.

The illumination as you enter the courtyard and the puppets getting ready for a traditional show.
Dinner at the illuminated court-yard with folk musicians and dancers - Truly Rajasthani!!!

Seems like Heaven on Earth
Restored artifacts and furniture can be seen in the corridors throughout the hotel.

A beautiful blend of the classical elements like the columns with luxurious contemporary furniture sets this hotel apart from the others.

Intricate Lattice or Jaali is creatively used wherever necessary.
The Bathroom motivates one to totally relax....feels like the Kings and the Queens

I specially loved the block work of golden paisleys on the walls in the room and the door displays in different colours with traditional illustrations.
The Peacock inspired Swimming Pool - Neel, is a place when one can spend hours....truly!!!
Dramatic brass ornamentation on the walls with peacock inspired motifs, the accent lighting and the blue pool is a divine experience.
Verdict - A great place to stay with entertainment for the complete family.
More posts on Jaisalmer to follow soon. Have  a great weekend!!!!!

This truly amazing, looks just a palace. Very good photography.
Is it also very expensive?
Anyway, it is good to know that you stayed in this beautiful hotel. I loved the entrance, the peacock motif, in fact everything. Looking forward to more .
