jüSTa Hotels & Resorts Small Luxury Hotels in India
jüSTa is a Sanskrit word, which means 'to welcome' to your home. At jüSTa hotels, this warm invitation of Indian hospitality meets international standards of luxury. The experience is further enhanced by Deepika Govind's unique handcrafted design for each jüSTa property. We believe in individualized service - therefore each of our hotels has less than 65 rooms.
The logo denotes a tree, which is an eternal symbol of life. As the tree provides shelter, so too does jüSTa. The green of the tree enhances jüSTa, making it a green brand. Designed by Mrinal Dey from Shantineketan a young, talented painter from Shantineketan, the logo is augmented by a vertical strata of rainbow colours, the hues of which are reflected in the art, fabric and furnishings used at jüSTa.

In this clutter of international and local brands, we aim at creating a special niche for Small Luxury Hotels , allowing jüSTa to be international in every way, with an Indian identity.
Lavish and opulent environs for the artistically inclined merge with the impressive softness of natural light to offer tangible luxury. Every piece of furniture, furnishing and décor allow the senses to enjoy luxury of an extremely high comfort.
Everything at jüSTa is modern and fashionable. Its luxury is seamless and efficient, yet extremely comfortable. Every detail has been individually treated with a sense of aesthetics, transcending functionality, transforming the daily experience into pleasure.

Surrounded by tranquil green environs, jüSTa isolates you from the noisy hustle and bustle of the outside world. It creates a Luxurious haven, where ‘Green’ becomes a continuous thread throughout the jüSTa experience.
For jüSTa, art is more than just décor. It believes that art is the ultimate expression of a culture. At jüSTa, each piece of art reflects a dimension of the Indian culture, traditional or emerging.
