“Umaid Bhawan Palace is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World and makes for an incredibly special stay. All rooms are exceptional, although we like the Maharaja suite which features a private steam room and en suite couple's therapy room, and the Maharani suite which showcases a private terrace, dressing room, and drawing rooms and dining rooms with an attached kitchenette.”
Set within 26 acres of lush gardens and perched high above Rajasthan’s capital lies this architectural masterpiece. Part of Umaid Bhawan Palace remains the official abode for Jodhpur’s royal family, while another houses a grand hotel offering unrivalled service and exceptional facilities.
Designed for the Maharaja in the late 1920’s, Umaid Bhawan Palace features traditional Rajput exteriors and lavish interiors including 64 rooms and suites. Palace rooms are equipped with modern interiors and four types of bath menu. Historical suites have private sit-outs with stunning panoramic views of the courtyards. Royal suites boast a living room with sweeping views of the Baradari lawns and Meherangarh Fort.
Guests are treated to delectable culinary delights from casual all-day dining to formal fine dining. Enjoy a feast on the rooftop at Sunset Pavilion as you admire views of the city, or a romantic private dinner in a secluded turret.
Other facilities include several pools and a spa, plus there are many activities available from horse riding to village and market visits.
