Shahpura Bagh

Shahpura Bagh with its extraordinary setting is the perfect place to slow things down. Spread across 50 acres, the 19th-century private estate and garden palace houses nine premium suites surrounded by placid lakes and blessed with a silence that’s punctuated only by birdcalls. The gorgeous pool featuring luxurious pavillions with daybeds and a massive sundeck is probably one of the best in Rajasthan. Here, days are filled with sunshine and serenity while the atmosphere is relaxed and unhurried. Tucked away in the heart of rural Rajasthan, Shahpura Bagh falls midway between Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, and Ranthambore making it an ideal stopover to slow down the pace on your Rajasthan itinerary.

The exclusivity of Shapura Bagh is its commitment to the preservation of the pristine environment and strong spirit of community, a tradition founded by the late king Rajadhiraj Nahar Singh and sincerely followed by his heirs. This mesmerising property offers bespoke experiences to its guests and charms them with its traditional Rajput culture, distinctive cuisine, and warm hospitality offered through tailor-made activities, excursions, farm and tribal hamlet visits, and cycling and photo tours.


Shahpura Bagh is located midway between the major cities of Rajasthan – Jaipur, Udaipur, and Jodhpur.

For those who don’t want to venture far, the estate with its orchard farms, lakes, and lush foliage is an easy saunter.  Boat rides are organised on the lakes, guests can also take a long stroll in the estate, ride bicycles, or even use the services of the resident bullock cart to explore the estate. The waterways not only harvest rainwater but also provides a wetland home to over a hundred species of birds where guests can go birdwatching/bird photography with a trained naturalist.

One of the signature experiences includes an evening drive to the 400-year-old Fort Dhikola for tea and snacks while watching glorious sunsets over the settlement below or for sundowner drinks and curated Champagne dinners.

Guests have the opportunity to visit the surrounding tribal villages of some of India’s oldest and largest tribes, the Bhils, the Minas, the Lohars, and the nomadic Rabaris to experience the raw beauty, rustic charm, and life in rural Rajasthan.

Other local excursions include visits to local temples, bazaars, and local artisans. At Shahpura guests can visit the joshis and learn the ancient art of phad painting, a style of religious scroll painting and folk painting.

Sustainability and Responsible Tourism:

This tradition of environmental and social consciousness is the core ethos of Shahpura Bagh carried on for many generations starting from the original founder of the royal state of Shahpura and Fort Dhikola, Rajadhiraj Nahar Singh who mortgaged the family wealth to create the first rainwater harvesting system in the region. Today, it is Shahpura’s lifeline and has created a strong spirit of community.

Sustainability and philanthropy are a guiding legacy with the family working closely with communities across several platforms including education, medicine, promotion of tribal arts and the development of the community. Shahpura Bagh has started and supported various local causes including school improvement and expansion projects, particularly those that encourage girls’ education.
