Overview

Historic pink sandstone palace in the heart of Jaipur surrounded by 18 acres of gardens

The Look

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.

Beyond

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.

Great hotel..great taj Hospitality as usual
ManojRana

The hotel, its location and the everything is great. However the check in and check out takes much longer and can be faster. Also the staff needs to be a bit more cooperative towards guests who are checking in after a 5 hours drive usually from Delhi and should listen to their requirements and cooperate.

Superb experience!!!

Great stay, clean rooms. Staff was always eager to help. We got the cheapest rooms and everything was clean, I've stayed in other ''high end'' hotels cheap rooms and did not have the same experience, highly recommended.
