Sujan Rajmahal Palace, Jaipur India, Rajasthan
This ornate and very beautiful palace is the former private home of the royal family of Jaipur. The work that has gone into restoring it and preserving its heritage is truly breath-taking. The family has used 43 different types of wallpaper and lavish furnishings to complement and frame the palace’s incredibly high ceilings. Not a single expense was spared, and the result is fantastic and more than a litle eclectic. This contemporary hotel is certainly one of a kind in the newer part of Jaipur city. Simply admiring the detail in the sumptuous interior and landscaped grounds is an absolute pleasure.
Sujan Rajmahal Palace has fifteen rooms, suites, and apartments and each is individually decorated and oozing with elegant charm. The lavish suites are named after former guests, so might pass by the Queen Elizabeth II suite if you’re not staying there yourself. The Maharani’s apartment is the largest and most exquisite option of all, with two bedrooms, a private entrance hall, a dining area with a fireplace, and a bathroom fit for royalty. Whichever room you book, you can expect super high-end service and luxurious touches at Sujan Rajmahal Palace. Three sumptuous restaurants and a gorgeous art deco style pool and area make this hotel a truly spectacular place to spend a few nights.
The opulence and glamour is not for everyone, but if it’s within your budget and you’d like to splash out, Sujan Rajmahal Palace is one of the finest places to rest your royal head in Jaipur.
