A beautifully maintained 1906 Colonial Bungalow welcomes you to relax and enjoy the hospitality of the Capoor family. From the extensive library to the curated gardens, the gourmet home cooked meals with fresh ingredients from our garden, there's plenty to do for everyone.
Your comfort is what we priortize so feel free to kick-back, relax and disconnect from the whole world while lying in the lap of nature here.
Welcome to Ajmer!
The colonial bungalow is a wonder of architecture with high-ceilings and each room is furnished with antique furniture with an attached dressing area and bathroom whilst maintaining the taste of an era gone by. Each one opens out onto the front veranda, leading to the secluded lawn. If needed, additional rooms can be made available.
While breakfast is complimentary, other meals can be arranged at an additional cost. As you’ll eat with the family, all you need to do is remember to let the cook know well ahead of time. All meals are home cooked, and every effort will be made to accommodate special needs, diets and tastes.
Our Bungalow remains first and foremost a family home – no room service is provided as a norm. However, service in the veranda or garden could be arranged depending on convenience and availability of staff.
Ajmer is a small town, so most places are just a 10 minute drive from the Bungalow. For short forays into town, auto- and cycle-rickshaws are easily available. Taxis can also be arranged on prior request with payments to be made directly to the drivers.
At our Bungalow you are guests of the family. We are happy to have you around sharing our days; soaking up the sun in the garden with a cool drink by your side, dipping into the vast, eclectic collection of books this family of avid readers has gathered, or discussing local myth, legend and history with friends and neighbours who drop in.
Zugang für Gäste
Guests have access to the front lawn, the back garden, the drawing room & other common areas.

While in Ajmer, you can try your hand at the following things:
*You can try your hand at pottery – there is a wheel in the garden, or learn the art of miniature painting in the style so typical of the region.
*If you're a foodie or just interested in learning how to cook a traditional Rajasthani meal or dish, you've come to the right place! We are avid foodies and cook everything at home, with most of the ingredients grown on site.
*Instructors can be organized on prior notice, for a fee.
*If you are fired with an enthusiasm to get a closer look at the chivalry and glory that legends are made of, we organise regular visits to palaces and forts around Ajmer; even those still lived in by descendants of those whose deeds the bards sing in praise of. We can also organise overnight stays on request.
*Village life has its own charm and if you’re interested we can organise tours to villages nearby where you can interact with ordinary people, watch craftsmen at work, maybe scout out the market for that perfect, unique souvenir.
*Then there are heritage sites all around the city of Ajmer. Too many to detail here, they make up some excellent heritage trails. We can help you chart your own special interest route that you can cover at your own pace.
Trips such as birdwatching, wildlife, religious sites, NGOs, rural development & villages, artisans at work, etc. can be arranged for special interest groups. You just need to let us know in advance.
Smoking is not allowed in the rooms but guests are welcome to smoke outdoors on the porch, on the patio, on the rooftop or in the garden.

Naveen, the great grandson of Shanker Lal Capoor , left Ajmer as a young man to build a successful career in Bombay’s high pressure world of advertising. Rajika, looked after the home and learned and taught French German and English. Meanwhile, the Ajmer Bungalow, once alive with artists, music and family, grew quiet. Coming home to Ajmer after long stints in Mumbai and Delhi, the couple brought back with them their passion for animals,entertaining and wide-ranging interests that include reading (everything under the sun), music - Indian and Western, gardening, bird watching, light trekking, painting, pottery, textiles, jewellery and a few more.
Good food is a religion: the art of cooking, we believe, is up there with the pure arts. In fact, by opening the Bungalow to guests, we hope to share our interests with our visitors.We are currently researching the processes of goat cheese making and bee-keeping and would welcome any advice or tips that guests may have to offer!
