The hotel’s restaurants serve refined takes on traditional Indian and European cuisine, and give you a choice of exquisite indoor and outdoor spaces.
Sapphire – This all-day restaurant starts with a multi-cuisine breakfast, offering continental favorites, fresh coffee, and traditional Indian specialties. Lunch and dinner service focuses on home-cooked Indian and international dishes. The poolside location has fine views of Amber Fort.
Rasa – Open only for dinner, Rasa presents Indian and Rajasthani dishes in a fine dining environment, with both indoor and outdoor seating. Traditional thali plates are popular, and live folk music and dancing add to the atmosphere. Outdoor seating has views of Nahargarh Fort.
Terrace Dining – A candlelit rooftop terrace that offers a buffet of Indian and international dishes. Local musicians provide the entertainment, and bonfires create a dramatic ambiance on winter evenings.
Bar at Shahpura House – Superb sunset views add to the appeal of this ornate yet relaxed space. It is ideal for pre-dinner drinks, and resident bartenders mix international spirits with local flavors such as pomegranate juice.
Pool Side Restaurant – This quiet and convenient spot serves high tea and snacks. You can also arrange to take lunch, dinner, or cocktails by the pool.
After a day of sightseeing, take a refreshing dip in the outdoor pool and lounge on the sun beds, with views of the hotel's opulent façade. Chess sets are available, as are boards for the traditional South Asian game carom — ask staff for instructions on how to play. Alternatively, pick up a cue in the elegant billiard room. Later, arrange a cooking class with one of Shahpura House's master chefs; after dinner, watch a Marionette Show, a traditional Rajasthani puppet show that takes place nightly beneath the stars.
Outside the hotel, step back in time at the 18th-century City Palace, the former residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur. Explore the Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal palaces within the complex, as well as the courtyards, lush gardens, and museum. Go stargazing at the remarkable Jantar Mantar, an astronomical observatory built in the early 1700s, or barter in the bazaars for colorful textiles, jewelry, and Rajasthani crafts.
