Placed on Conde Nast Traveler’s hotel “Hot List 2017”, the Rajmahal Palace is truly a sight to be seen in Jaipur, India. Not just rich in beauty, this palace is rich in history as well. Once the official residence of the British Resident Political Officer of Rajputana, the palace has been home to many royals over the years. It’s not surprising – the palace is dripping with chandeliers, gold accents, and specially designed wallpapers and fabrics.
Guests can choose to stay in a palace room, palace suite, royal suite, or royal apartment – no two rooms and suites are the same at the Rajmahal Palace. If you’re a fan of Jackie O’s, stay in the Kennedy Suite, which includes a drawing room, bedroom, dressing room, dining room, and an en suite bathroom. The suite is named, of course, for its former guest, Jackie Kennedy, who stayed in this room for nearly three months in 1962. Want to go even bigger? Book the Maharani’s Apartment! With turquoise wallpaper, pink ceilings, and comfortable furniture throughout, this apartment is sure to please, not to mention the full kitchen enclosed private verandah and personal heated plunge pool that comes with your stay!
Dining options at the palace are just as rich as the rooms; named for the Pink City of India, 51 Shades of Pink is decked out with pink wallpaper and beautiful white tables and chairs throughout. It’s a great place for guests to grab breakfast. If pink isn't your color, head over to The Colonnade; turquoise accents pepper this 24-7 dining area where guests can enjoy India’s best comfort food cuisine.
No palace is complete without a top-of-the-line spa – relax at the SUJÁN Spa and get the royal treatment! Once relaxed, opt for a guided city tour, check out a polo match, or look into one of the other royal experiences offered by the Rajmahal Palace – you’re sure to have a great time!
