Umaid Bhawan Palace Hotel
Umaid Bhawan  

The Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur is an historical site, first constructed in 1928 and placed above the desert capital of Jodhpur. It was originally a palace and the last of the great palaces of India. Besides twenty-six acres of lush foliage and gardens, the palace hotel also features art-deco style luxury, combining both sensibilities of the east and wet, along with 347 rooms and special theme rooms. The renaissance-influenced cupola is over 100 feet high, and the Rajput style towers are amazing to behold. Inside, the fixtures and furnishings are designer-quality while the murals feature original art by the likes of world-renowned Polish artist Stefan Norblin. Also onsite is a private museum, squash courts, billiards and dining from the grill with traditional Indian music. Perhaps the greatest feature for history lovers is that the hotel escorts you around with a royal butler in a vintage old style car. Choose from theme rooms like historical suites, royal suites, grand royal suites and maharajah suites. Each of the theme rooms has its own unique style, with amenities like crystal fountains, large murals of wildlife, mirrored bars and exotic artifacts mixed in with the décor. This is a great location for sampling Royal Indian life, the way the greatest of kings once had it.
