Photo of SUJÁN Rajmahal Palace

“A rose-tinted palace in The Pink City, its fourteen desirable rooms have stylish interiors courtesy of the acclaimed Adil Ahmed. Rooms are decorated in chic palettes of contrasting colours: turquoises with pinks, blue with white - very photogenic. Dining is an equal parts aesthetic and tasty affair.”

Hotel Review

Owned by Jaipur’s royal family, SUJÁN Rajmahal Palace’s style and décor is a nod to their past. Dating back to 1729 this former country retreat is now well within the centre of Jaipur, less than 15-minutes' drive from the walled city. Interiors, designed by acclaimed interior designer, Adil Ahmad, are a feast for the eyes. Steering away from the usual Rajasthani palace design troupes, they are decorated in teal blues and shocking pinks, each named after an esteemed former guest. Large, marble bathrooms, include bespoke rose-scented toiletries. Dining at Rajmahal Palace is to experience the theatre of being a guest of royalty. À la carte breakfasts include a trio of juice shots, warm baker’s baskets, eggs any style, and large pots of strong coffee. Be sure not to miss a photo op at the 51 Shades of Pink restaurant or their signature afternoon tea. The pool is idyllic, with a sonorous fountain and cushioned loungers, hampers filled with towels, and canvas umbrellas. A Great-Gatsby worthy stay, by way of India.

In the pink with the Maharajas of Jaipur

The palace has had many lives since it was built in 1729 by the Maharaja of Jaipur as a garden retreat for his wife, on what was then the outskirts of the Pink City. In 1821, it became the official home of the British Resident Political Officer and continued as a British residency right up until Indian Independence in 1947.

FIT FOR A MAHARAJA

Owned by the royal family of Jaipur, Suján Rajmahal Palace is one of the city's oldest palaces. It was built in the 1720s for the Maharaja, home to Indian royalty for centuries; it has hosted the Queen and Prince Philip (one can only imagine his comments about the wiring), Jackie Onassis, Lord and Lady Mountbatten.
