Umaid Bhawan Palace,
Info : Umaid Bhawan Palace
Umaid Bhawan Palace was designed and constructed in sandstone between 1928 and 1943, commissioned by the Royal Highness Maharaja Umaid Singh ji to create a symbol for a new Jodhpur. Following its construction, the palace became Jodhpur’s new favourite landmark, replacing the Mehrangarh Fort. Today, it’s one of the world’s largest private residences.
Because this property has such a fascinating and important history, there is a Palace Museum on the grounds, with plenty of Edwardian treasures, weapons, miniature paintings, and collections belonging to former Maharajas. Jodhpur is close at hand with its bustling bazaars, narrow twisting lanes, and the imposing Mehrangarh Fort.
The palace sits high above the city of Jodhpur on 26 acres, and offers 64 rooms and suites, all decorated in an incomparable art deco style, drawing inspiration from East and West. The rooms are incredibly luxurious, although the colour and décor themes feel a bit dated. Book a historical suite for extra space. On the grounds, there is a large swimming pool, tennis courts, and a spa.
The regal atmosphere here is a tad over the top, and it may feel a bit pretentious for some visitors, particularly the room themes. Still, the palace does offer a rich and colourful history, unique art deco design, good facilities, and plenty of luxury touches.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.

The one-on-one guide arranged with Experience Travel Group enabled me to get so much more from my trip to India. As well as the almost compulsory visits to the Taj Mahal and Red Fort, I was shown a variety of busy towns and mall villages, traditional crafts and skills, religious buildings and practices, architecture and wildlife, finishing with a very relaxing stay in Tikli Bottom.
