Laid out 250 years ago, the Samode Bagh is the private garden retreat of the Samode Royal family. Designed in the classic « Char Bagh » style, complete with water channels and fountains, it is one of the oldest functional Mughal gardens of Rajasthan. This haven includes 20 acres of carefully manicured gardens, some stables and a main lounge.
The accommodation at Samode Bagh is consists of 44 luxuriously appointed Royal tents. Spread around the periphery of the garden, the accommodation is laid out like a Royal tented encampment of the bygone days. The tents rival the Royals tents of the Mughal era in their opulence and luxury. In keeping with the requirements of modern day travellers, all the tents equipped with contemporary conveniences, are air-conditioned and have plush en-suite marble bathrooms. Each tent has a private sit-out where you can relax, read, engage with the quiet and be with nature.
The dining room of Samode Bagh is located in a large communal tent. A sit down dinner in this tastefully furnished and opulent tent transports on to the days of the luxurious camps set up for the Royalty during the days of the Raj.
If you prefer a quiet and intimate dining experience, the poolside offers the perfect spot.
Given the environs of the Bagh, dining al fresco is a very popular option and many celebrations are organized under the trees and the stars. Open-air barbeques with music, song and dance are also very popular.
Fine dining is a hallmark of Samode Bagh. The menu offers a choice of Rajasthani, Indian, Chinese and Continental cuisine.
The wine cellar at the Bagh boasts of an extensive selection of Indian wines.
Take nature walks, identify flowers and plants, watch birds, stroll, meditate, read by the fireside, play games, swim in the exotic pool or rejuvenate with a massage.
And when you’ve done with the easy relaxing, get adventurous, saddle up for horse or camel safaris around the rugged countryside – into villages and fields- into Samode and around. Take a jeep if you will. You may want to walk through the cobbled lanes of Samode village and market, stopping by the little shops of the bangle maker, the cloth merchant, or the gemstone expert.
