Formerly the residence of Jaipur’s prime minister, this elegant pink and yellow palace, set in the heart of the city, has origins that go back to 1747. The meandering complex of regal rooms, pavilions and colonnades is surrounded by some of the finest Mughal gardens in India. The interior befits a palace: marble pillars and floors with inviting cream and pastel green hues.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms feature colonial-style furniture, miniature paintings and gold silks. Deluxe Rooms have marble floors and traditional Rajasthani decor, including original paintings by contemporary Indian artists or classical and mythological prints that depict ancient Rajput culture and heritage. Luxury rooms, some of which have private balconies, are decorated in the rich colors of Rajasthan: turquoise and red. Six Luxury Suites, styled in six unique themes, have a bedroom and sitting area. The bathrooms are modern and are stocked with Forest Essentials toiletries made in India from natural ingredients.
The sprawling lawn is a veritable theater. Yoga sessions are held there during the day, and come evening, palm readers and Rajasthani folk dancers mingle amid a human-size Indian-themed chess board. There’s also a seven-hole putting green and a gigantic outdoor pool. Cinnamon, the pan-Indian gourmet restaurant, creates an aura of regal celebration with its violet decor and specialties by request. Other venues include Marble Arch (multiple cuisines), Giardino (alfresco Italian), and the Frangipani (the palace barbeque and grill). Book the Baradari under the pavilion and indulge in an unforgettable private meal with outstanding views. At night the lit palace is magical.
In the Area
Take an elephant ride at the Amber Fort, one of the most famous forts in Rajasthan. It encompasses palaces and a temple and is located high on a hill with sweeping views. The Hawa Mahal, one of Jaipur’s most famous landmarks, translates as “Palace of the Winds” because it served as a screen wall that allowed women of the royal household to observe street activities unseen. Catch a Bollywood film at Theatre Rajmandir, a lavish meringue-shaped auditorium with mirror inlays that opened in 1976; be sure to see the light show in the foyer 30 minutes before the film begins.
How to Get There
Very nice hotel, great garden
Excellent hospitality kand all the staff is very co operative
Food And service is excellent
Special thanks to shiv for very well coordination and make it very easy for smooth operations.
All the very best to team Taj Jai Mahal Palace.
The check in was delayed, lunch at Marble Arch was TERRIBLE. It was so bad that we cancelled our dinner reservation at Cinnamon and went to Suvarna Mahal at the Rambagh Palace. There was an event at the hotel with LOUD music till 10 pm. The bathrooms seem dated. There were a lot of staff & guests walking around in the passageway outside the room till quite late making it noisy. The Jai Mahal felt (to me) like the outhouse for the Taj Rambagh Palace. Or perhaps we were just given a cr@ppy room because we used our Taj Innercircle Vouchers !!
Last month I had witnessed the great professional skills & magnanimous attitude of entire team in organising my daughters wedding celebrations at Jai Mahal. The Chef Sanjay Mathur has been fabulous in delivering the food spread, which was liked by all the guests, including some of our old tradition bound old age relatives and friends also.
An absolute value for money.
The grounds are amazing. They had an engagement party and a wedding going on outside while we were staying there. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful. From the flute player in the garden to the horse drawn carriage and the inside staff, it was a perfect stay.
Stayed for 2 nights at this beautiful classy hotel. The room was very large and total quality.
It has large grounds live music and a number of great restaurants.
Everything about this hotel is 5 star +
Pool area great and there is also a large chess board.
Staff can't do enough for you. We requested an iron and iron board which was delivered within minutes.
