Located in the heart of Jaipur, this palatial hotel has the best of both worlds – a central position yet set in 47 acres of gardens. It captures the elegance and charm of a bygone era - peacocks play in the large gardens, the architecture is nothing short of impressive, and the rooms are opulent and lavish enough to make one feel rather royal.

Miranda and Rosie are here to help give you the inside track.

Originally built by the maharaja of Japiur as a private residence in 1835, Rambagh Palace is still very much fit for a king.

There are 73 rooms in total, including suites, all adorned with opulent furnishings and decorated in rich colours. Finishing touches such as intricately carved pillars, rich silks and Rajasthani artwork complete the palatial picture. Despite the somewhat elaborate nod to its royal beginnings, all of the rooms are decked out with the latest technologies and are kept up to speed with modern times.

There is a choice of five restaurants at Rambagh Palace, including the traditional Suvarna Mahal restaurant which serves delicious Indian cusine; the Polo Bar, which, decked out with trophies and polo memorabilia, captures the glamour and romance of the princely sport; and Steam, a restored steam engine set in a reconstructed Victorian style station.

Facilities at the hotel include outdoor and indoor swimming pools, a fantastic spa, fitness centre, yoga pavilion, croquet lawn and mini golf course. The gardens are home to some spectacular birdlife, and are also fantastic just to walk around.

Why we love it

Home to the Jaipur royal family until 1957, the opulent décor and regal feel is entirely fitting, and it is no wonder that Rambagh Palace has long been known as the 'Jewel of Jaipur'.
