Taj Rambagh Palace Jaipur (Rambagh), India

“Royal treatment in the home of the former Maharaja of Jaipur. The interior decoration and surrounding grounds echo the magic of a bygone era - marble floors, beautiful colonnades, and acres of luscious gardens. A fabulous place to stay.”

“Chauffered through the grounds in a 1939 Pontiac (taxis don’t come in) and garlanded on arrival, it is hard not to feel a bit special here. This is the former home of the Maharani Gayatri Devi, the great beauty, politician and style icon. The vast Palace sits in 47 acres close to the city. After rain lapwings picked their way through the inner garden, Chandni Chowk, and flute-music echoed through the verandahs. Converted to a hotel in 1957 the 79 rooms and suites are exquisitely decorated. There are three restaurants, a good pool and excellent Spa.”

They say

“Walk from room to room amongst rich textures, opulent furnishings and exquisite objects d’art. Step out into expansive, ornamental gardens arranged in brilliant symmetry. Retire to rooms that were once the sanctuaries of kings, princes and their guests. Rambagh Palace exudes an unmistakable sense of history. It’s an architectural masterpiece that transcends time.

Request the legendary Peacock suite, which overlooks the Mughal Terrace and the garden where the Maharaja used to celebrate "Holi," the festival of color and lights. Stage an evening of high romance in a private tent, illuminated only by torchlight. Indulge in a stately dining at the gilded Suvarna Mahal, formerly the palace ballroom. Enjoy a royal, feast and lounging under a star-speckled sky. Play Polo as the kings played it, or at a more leisurely pace on elephant back. Wind up the day’s activities in the sophisticated charm of the legendary Polo Bar. Rambagh Palace allows guest to partake of a wealth of experiences that resound with the memories, luxuries and extravagances of a bygone era that luckily, has not entirely disappeared.”
