Umaid Bhawan Palace Jodhpur, India

“The only way to experience the real magic of Jodhpur. This exquisite Maharaja's palace is the ultimate in grandeur and luxury. Elegant rooms with Art Deco trappings, swimming pools, spa, billiards, yoga - the list goes on. A truly romantic and old-world setting.”

“This great edifice, with its vast proportions of sandstone and marble, is the last word in class. Sitting high on a hill, surrounded by lush rolling lawns, the Palace is a landmark in Rajasthan, never mind Jodhpur. The Taj-run 64-room hotel offers everything: elegant accommodation, three restaurants, two swimming pools, tennis and squash courts, billiards and yoga. If grandeur and luxury in a historic Indian setting is what you crave, then look no further.”

They say

“The Palace was built, between 1928 and 1943, for H.H. Maharaja Umaid Singh ji, Grand Father of our present Maharaja, who had benevolently commissioned a new palace in 1923 to replace Mehrangarh Fort as the symbol of a new Jodhpur and to give employment to the people of Marwar during the period's great droughts and famines. Perched high above the desert capital of Jodhpur, Umaid Bhawan Palace is the last of the great palaces of India and one of the largest private residences in the world - set amidst 26 acres of lush gardens.”
