Samode Bagh near Jaipur

Samode Bagh near Jaipur

A unique and immensely peaceful camp, situated in incomparably beautiful Mughal gardens close to Samode Palace. Samode Bagh comprises a collection of extremely comfortable tent- effect rooms scattered around a large premise. They are fixed structures with proper bathrooms and have recently been beautifully re-decorated in a stylish, understated, contemporary / colonial style.

The ‘tents’ are spacious and although close to each other, they are well insulated and private as they are walled on all sides but with a tented effect inside and a tented roof. The stunning dining tent serves delicious local and international cuisine and the smiling staff are always around to bring you a refreshing lime soda or a strong cup of real coffee.

The expansive gardens are amongst the finest to be found in India and are replete with pavilions and fountains, lawns and flowerbeds, criss-crossing pathways and shady places to sit and read or to listen to the birds, undisturbed. The beautiful swimming pool is in the pavilion, which is also home to an airy, pillared sitting area and a terrace bursting with plants. After returning from a hectic day’s sightseeing in nearby Jaipur, the massage and steam area provides the perfect place to unwind and relax.

A wonderful place for children, gardeners and those seeking an oasis away from the city.

Eco / environmental / responsible tourism policy

  • Samode Palace and Samode Bagh have sewage treatment plants and the treated water after being treat is recycled and used for irrigating the palace plants and gardens.
  • The wasted food storage area is air-conditioned so it can be preserved and sent to the piggery farm, to be recycled via manure.
  • Samode Palace and Bagh recruit and train people from the local area and work closely with them to try to improve living conditions and to educate the surrounding communities. The result of which is that more than 70% of the employees are from the local areas.

This has lead to increased wealth and contentment and stability in the surrounding villages.
  • Samode encourages farmers to produce vegetables and herbs which are purchased directly by the hotels.
  • Samode Hotels has its own charitable trust which helps the village panchayat to improve sanitation, education, medical and infrastructure. From every room sold 2% goes to the charitable trust. Some of the work done by the trust includes: providing invertors for electricity back up for the school at Samode; providing doctors kit and medical equipment to the Government Hospital; offering and providing financial help for medical treatment to villagers; the restoration and repair of the ancient village temple; providing milk and fruit distribution to students in the village schools as refreshments; providing water supplies to the village during the summer months when water becomes scarce; cleaning and maintaining the village roads since.
