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
The property is great -- a palace converted and maintained in excellent condition. Nice staff -- friendly and efficient. Good food. Rooms are on the smaller side, but are luxurious and have great view. We overlooked the mughal garden and saw peacocks in the morning. Excellent value for money. The location is wonderful as most places of interest are within 20 minutes drive.
Very well maintained heritage property with wonderful staff to take care of all your needs.
Had a very good check-in by the lobby manager who explained everything in detail.
All our needs were met and staff was supportive. Special mention of the security team placed at the lobby. They were always pleasant and courteous to wish us every time we went out/came in.
Had booked in advance, so got complimentary dinner (good idea to do advance booking and keep checking their website for special offers). Spread of both dinner and breakfast was good and food was tasty.
The downside is that once you are at the hotel you may not be to keen to step out and do any sightseeing.
Set in the idyllic surroundings of vast tracts of lush 18 acres of exquisitely designed Mughal Gardens, the Jai Mahal Palace Hotel is one of the finest illustrations of Indo-Saracenic architecture. This palace of about 260 years old has been converted into a Grand Heritage hotel and is managed by the Taj group of hotels, the largest hotel chain in the country. Built in the year 1745 A.D, this hotel previously served as the official residence of the Prime Minister of Jaipur.
We visited the Italian restaurant in Taj Jai Mahal palace.The food was gob smackingly delicious! The portion size was also huge!The staff as usual was very polite and friendly!! The hotel is spread over a huge area and was too good! Large number of peacocks in the gardens!Must visit!!
Visited Jai Mahal Palace. Food is strictly ok. But the property is very beautiful and looks like a Mahal in literal sense. One of of the better properties for the price in Jaipur. Has a pool and a pool side restaurant.
