... the decorated camels. As we passed through sometimes the waves would be changed for blowing kisses and that would make the receiver of those kisses smile and laugh with joy. We sat at the top of the sand dune, drank masala tea, which we then changed to beer and watched the night sky change colours from pink to orange to dark blue. Before it got too dark we headed back to the camels and drank and played cards until late in the ...
... was one older chap at the hotel, a member of staff, who was in 7th heaven with so many women to give a Holi hug to. He enjoyed them so much he abandoned the colours and well wishes and just came for a hug. Couldn't speak a word of English, not a tooth in his head, with a massive grin wanting hugs - bit like the men on a Saturday night in Bridgend really.
The beer was flowing almost as much as the water. It was great fun, I planned my trip so I could be here for Holi and so glad ...
... concubines and princes during there visits to the newer side of Jaipur. The front if the building over looks the busy high streets, and has 96 windows on the front and back. All of the windows have mini doors which you can open and close. In side the place would have been dark so the people could look out the windows at the street below and not be seen by the people in the streets. The palace of the wind was another place with marble carvings, mirrors ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Clarks Amer Jaipur
Stayed with my two sons aged 8 and 11 for two nights on a 6-day trip around India (Delhi, Agra and Jaipur).
It was the best of our three hotels:
- Our greeting was most welcoming; I must say Sher Singh Khardia went out of his way to ensure our comfort and hapiness.
- Room service was very attentioned. We had an extra cot added to our most spacious room; my son slept extremely well in it. Very clean, well kept.
- Comfort of beds was incomparable.
- Meals were very good: breakfast buffet was varied and offered continental fare that pleased my son who hasn't taken to Indian food.
- Safety was our greatest concern and Clarks Amer made us feel very secure.
I would recommend this hotel for travelling families and intend to come back to this hotel if fate allows me come back to India.
