Dear Guest Thank you for all the appreciation and encouragement. Vivaana is proud to state that we have tried to renovate the Haveli with utmost precision, so that the original character of the place is not lost.

This is a charming heritage - hotel 3-4 hours drive from Indira Gandhi Int. airport. The room was large as well as the bathroom. Clean and airy. Food was ok and you can sit outside at the courtyard, Service was impeccable. Swimming-pool clean and fairly large without pigeons.....The SPA needs improvement but I can really recommend Vivaana !

Vivaana, meaning the first ray of the sun truly justifies its name. It's a gem in mandawa that brightens up and uplifts not only the place it sits in but also the moods of the people visiting it. It surely did for me and my friends. The way the history and the ancient architecture marry the contemporary and modern techniques...

We had an amazing short but sweet stay at Vivaana. The rooms were so cozy that we did not feel like leaving rooms.

An outstanding property - perfect balance of restoration of the historic property and contemporary touches. Really comfortable 5-star hotel quality beds, fantastic shower and so many attentive touches and details. Really great service too. A very memorable stay. Breakfast was not quite the same quality as everything else but we had a delicious and memorable dinner in the garden terrace...
