Just a stone's throw from the main palace walls, Bundi Vilas is our preferred stay in this charming and historic town. With spectacular views of both the palace and the Jait Sagar (lake) below, the rooftop terrace is the ideal place to relax and watch the world go by.
Each of the seven rooms have been refurbished in a traditional style. Exposed original masonry, low lighting and a real attention to detail make for a warm atmosphere and a strong sense of location and local style. All rooms have air-conditioning, well appointed bathrooms and comfortable beds.
Rooms at the top of the hotel are offer the best views and one can take breakfast outside the room in the morning. We suggest opting for these where possible but do be aware than the local monkeys occasionally enjoy dancing on the roof early morning!
Food is served on the roof top terrace, comprises largely local cuisine, and is very tasty indeed. Some European options are available.
The access point to the property is through the original 14 century lane and gateway so expect your driver to pull up in the town and the hotels porters to collect your luggage and transfer this to your room for you. This is an original heritage property so expect winding staircases and lots of character.
Bundi Vilas offers seven individual rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. Decor is in traditional Rajasthani style. All rooms have air-conditioning.
Location & Directions
When to go
Rajasthan is known as the desert state. It is largely hot and dry throughout the year, making it a great destination to get away from European winters.
Summer in Rajasthan extends from April to June. It is s the hottest season, with temperatures ranging from 32 degree C to 45 degree C, so not ideal for travel, although early April is a good time to get cheaper rates if you dont mind the temperature in the high 30s. In western Rajasthan the temperature may reach at high as 45 degree C, particularly in May and June so we'd suggest avoiding Jaisalmer and the Thar Desert at this time.
The second season - technically the "Monsoon" (although in reality Rajasthan never receives much rainfall) extends from July to September. The temperature drops slightly, and humidity increases. 90% of the rain Rajasthan can expect occurs during this period. Lakes and rivers will be higher from mountain run-off and flowers and grasses come to life, bringing added color to the landscape.
The Post-monsoon period is from October to November. The average maximum temperature is 33 degree C to 38 degree C, and the minimum is between 18 degree C and 20 degree C. The official "season" for hotels in Rajasthan starts in October. It’s a great time to travel - warm and sunny during and perfect for exploring and relaxing.
The fourth season is "winter", and runs from December to March. With day time temperatures still in the high 20's during the day this a very popular time to travel. Hotels are at the their busiest over the Christmas and new year period. Be aware though that December and January can have very cool mornings and evening and we suggest taking some warm clothing. Whilst temperatures in the desert areas are always hot in the daytime, they become some of the coolest areas of the state once the sun goes down. It’s also fairly standard to expect some fog in the major cities of Northern Rajstasthan and Delhi in December and January.
