This delightful Haveli is an oasis in the Shekawati area of Rajasthan. Rooms and ensuite bathrooms are clean and both very spacious (a little airless because of the design of havelis having few windows) but overall very comfy and with good amenities. The dining courtyard outdoors (also is an indoor area) was wonderful - with entertainers and fires to ward...

This was one of our favorite hotels during our trip to India. The way we were received, the contrast from the village where the hotel is located and the beautiful inside, the rooms, the garden, the dinner there in the evening with the music.... Perfect!

Vivaana far exceeded our expectations. At first, as we approached the hotel down a dusty, unmade road, I feared we'd made a mistake, and from the exterior the Haveli also looks a little dusty, if authentic!
