Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur
Perched on the highest point Jodhpur, Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace offers the chance to stay in one of the last grand palaces to be constructed in India. Still retaining original architecture, it is the world’s sixth largest private residence and parts of it are made from the same palm court marble used to build the Taj Mahal.
Each of the hotel’s 64 rooms and suites are decorated in Art Deco style, finished with fine luxury touches and facilities. During your stay, the dedicated concierge team are at your service, aiming to fulfil your every wish for the most exclusive Jodhpur getaway.
Take the heritage walk for a guided tour of the palace’s history, including the family museum, or explore the 26 acres of gardens featuring landscaped lawns, dancing peacocks and a subterranean Zodiac pool. Private dining in the palace and grounds can also be arranged for a memorable culinary experience in a fairytale setting.
Rich in culture and known for its blue-hued streets and buildings, Jodhpur is where you will find one of the largest forts in India, Mehrangarh Fort. There are plenty of other heritage sights to explore too – Mandore Gardens, the Old City markets, and Jaswant Thada to name a few.
The hotel is just a 20 minute drive away from Jodhpur Airport.
