8 Reasons, Why Devraj Niwas, Jaipur is an Awesome Wedding Accommodation!

8 12 2016

15085659_1224351177622945_1995701006628664382_nA wedding in Jaipur, one of the most romantic cities of the world and the top 5 tourist destinations of India is invariably a ‘destination wedding’. Whether the groom, bride or both are from outside the city, creating a memorable experience for your guests, especially when so many come from across the country and the world is not something which can be taken lightly. Managing guests, luggage, pickups-drops, lunches, shopping, ceremonies, make-up, sightseeing and mostly giving that quality time to all the guests all at home can fast turn into a nightmare. In hotels, with rooms scattered all over the property and guests & family meeting only for ceremonies or over meals intermingled with hotel guests, it stops feeling personal. Also apart from the wedding ceremonies which mostly take place in the night at the venue, the days remain wide open for the guests to enjoy their stay in the lovely Pink city. It is an awesome time to catch up with both the family and the friends while staying put together and spending the day doing something fun and adventurous and in the process creating wonderful memories.

It is here that Devraj Niwas steps in and creates that feel of ‘destination’ to your wedding. With accommodation for guests, their to & fro, food, shopping, sightseeing, and ceremonies ; basically, the complete package all taken care of tastefully, you are free to enjoy the very special time that a wedding is.

1.Location, location, location: Stationed bang in the middle of Jaipur city, both the new as well as old Jaipur are easily accessible from here. Be it to see the magnificent sound and light show at Amer Fort, admire Jantar-Mantar, pick up Jewellery from MI road / Johari bazar or Block prints from Jaipur, you couldn’t be more conveniently located. With airport & railway station pick-up and drop as well as a travel assistance to help you figure out the city and its favorite haunts, you are at the right place in the right hands.

Devraj Niwas- Home for delightful choices of breakfast for our guests

26 09 2016

Breakfast is considered to be the most important meal of the day. In India, some eat parathas or poha with curd and pickle and some prefer going for fruits, juices and cereals. At Devraj Niwas, we serve various kinds of breakfast ranging from Indian to American to our in-house guests. The breakfast hours are, however, fixed from 7 am to 10 am.  So, let’s take a walk to see what all kinds of breakfast we offer:

1. Continental Breakfast

Right after you wake up, take a stroll around and enjoy the morning with some scrumptious continental breakfast. From juices to sandwiches, morning continental breakfast can be taken up in many ways. At Devraj Niwas, you can choose between various juices like Orange, Pineapple or Tomato and toast with jam or marmalade (fruit preserve made from the juice and peel of citrus fruits) applied on it. Doesn’t it sound yum?

2. Indian Breakfast

If you would love some light Indian breakfast then Poha is a must try with maybe curd or tea. But if you are one of those who want the breakfast to be really heavy, then stuffed paratha with pickle or curd would be great for you. And adding some Punjabi touch to it by having a glass full of lassi would also do. And trust us, after this your stomach would have no hunger pangs till lunch.

3. South Indian Breakfast

As we all know that South India is famous for its coconuts. So, how can we not have yummy coconut chutney in breakfast? Having idli and vada with sambhar and mixing the coconut chutney in it changes its taste completely. You have an option of going for Uppma which is again a great option for a comparatively lighter breakfast.

4. American Breakfast

How do you like your eggs, Monsieur? Boiled, fried, poached, omelette or scrambled; choose from these and we will get you the tastiest of your favorite egg dish. You can also add it on the toast. Just in case, you are not a fan of eggs then you can layer up the toast with jam or marmalade; have juices or cereals with hot/ cold milk.

9 Things to pack if you are travelling to Jaipur

27 08 2016

Jaipur aka Pink City is yet another incredible city of India that has a rich history and impeccable heritage. With all those forts, palace, monuments and heritage sites Jaipur offers a lovely opportunity to get accustomed to the lifestyle of both historical and modern marvels of architecture. And in the posh area of Jaipur is our hotel Devraj Niwas surrounded by the lush green environs.

So while you plan of visiting us and our city this season, let us help you pack some vital things that you must bring along:

1. Umbrella/ raincoat – As you must know, it’s raining cats and dogs here. So just to save yourself from getting drenched, you must carry an umbrella with you.

2. Sunglasses – While it rains much, there are times when the bright sun rays are out. So just to protect your eyes from direct exposure, carry along a pair of glasses which would even look good in pictures.

3. Clothes- It would do no harm if you carry extra pair of clothes with you just in case you get wet with unexpected rains.

4. Summer coat– It wouldn’t harm for you to carry a light weight summer coat along with you as the sun rays might affect your skin.

5. Sunscreen– To protect your skin from getting damaged, a traveler must always carry sunscreen and in fact must keep it in the backpack.

7. Mosquito repellent – As soon as you enter the rooms, there wouldn’t be any trouble but during your visit out in open areas its better if you apply it and go so as to protect yourself from any mosquito bites.

8. Wipes- These are really important to carry. They are the only protectors from sweat and dirt. The journey becomes hard to imagine without these saviours.

Having your favorite cocktail but are you having it in the right glass?

23 08 2016

Through old times, cocktail has been served in a particular manner. There is always a right glass for the right drink but with changing times of mix and match, this trend has also changed.

Come let us help you identify some of the glasses that are commonly used although now alternatives come in various shapes and sizes.

1. Wine glass As the name suggests, these glasses are typically made to serve wine in them. The long stick at the end is what one is supposed to hold so that the drink doesn’t warm up quickly. This holds a typical volume of 250 to 300 ml / 8.8 to 10.6 Oz.

wine_wine_glasses_drink_alcohol_89676_5038x3214

 

2. Margarita glass– This Margarita bearer is also called as a “cocktail glass”. These glasses carry a volume of 250 ml / 8.8 Oz which are again to be held from the stick.

Cosmopolitan

 

3. Champagne flute– The slim elegant glass holds a capacity of 200 ml / 7.0 Oz of best quality champagne. The tall shape of the glass prevents the drink from going flat too fast. Also, it prevents the bubbles from rising upwards giving the best visual effects.

4. Martini glass– Also called as “Martini Saucer” makes the drink look royal. Martini can be poured in it easily due to the broad opening but this may even cause you problem on the dance floor where it can easily spill out. It can carry a volume of 250ml / 8.8 Oz.

Blue Lagoon

 

5. Shot glass The drinks in these glasses are supposed to be swallowed in a single gulp. They are small glasses with a little capacity of 25 ml or 50 ml / 0.9 to 1.8 Oz.

10156031_1041872495870815_488139290427665144_n

 

6. Brandy snifter– Known by other names also such as goblet or balloon due to the shape of the glass. Fine quality brandy is poured in to the widest area of the glass. Large surface area allows the aroma of the contents to rise and be concentrated at the narrow mouth for maximum effect. It can carry a volume of 350 ml / 12.3 Oz.

7. Beer mug– These are typically used for drinking beer and may vary exceedingly in sizes from 400 ml up to 2000 ml / 14.1 up to 70.4 Oz.

13245365_1085495254841872_1174320473306227289_n
