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! However, on entering the gates, we were given a warm welcome and we're showered with marigold petals, after which a very polite manager, (speaking...

I have nothing but positive things to say about vivaana. The greeting at entrance was warm and welcoming, the waiters were very open and helpful ( tho an english workshop wouldn't go astray) and the building itself is an absolute joy to stay in. Having visited so many havelis you truly realise how special this one is. To wake up...

This beautifully restored haveli takes you off the beaten track but provides a good base for exploring the havelis and sights of the Shekhawati area. The building is fabulous, with divine bedrooms which have kept the old features but added ultra modern bathrooms. You stoop to enter the rooms through low, original doors. Packed with interest - from old Ambassadors...

The Vivaana Culture Hotel, in the Shekawati region of Rajasthan was an exceptionally beautiful hotel. The owners & designers involved clearly love the region and the old Haveli which they painstakingly restored. The approach to the restoration is very sensitive and discreet. Don't come expecting the Hilton! It is so much more than one of those bland, sterile chain hotels....

Stayed in Vivaana for one night. Went with family to celebrate brother in law's 50th wedding anniversary. Haweli with frescos very nice with spacious rooms... As you enter the haweli you find Rajasthani culture on walls and ceilings depicting rich mingling of colours..its drenched into royal grandeur which shows vibrant taste of rich Marwaris... I found everything superb but food...

This hotel is in a restored twin haveli in a small village outside Mandawa. There are several other large haveli in the vicinity, otherwise the only reason to come to Mandawa is that it breaks up the journey to Delhi or Jaipur - which is a good reason. The hotel has a small Ayurvedic spa run by two delightful people...
