If you go to Jodhpur, don´t miss this hotel. It´s the highlight of the city. Amazing service and an unforgettable experience. Have lunch at the terrace and enjoy both swimming pools. Take your time just to be at the hotel and wonder through it´s corridors. Play pool and have a nice cup of tea in any of it´s salons.

The motto here is "This is a Maharajas palace, so we treat guests like royalty." And from the moment you arrive (I might say especially at the moment you arrive!) they do everything to live up to the promise. The building itself is indeed a palace, built in the 1940s, and the Maharaja still lives in one of the wings....

This was our second trip to Jodhpur, exactly after 10 years! Trip to Umaid Bhawan Palace was extremely disappointing, only a small hall and a courtyard of the Palace is open to public. it's not worth the time and distance one has to travel to reach Umaid Bhawan. The canteen at the entrance sells packaged snacks with high mark up...

The Umaid Bhawan Palace Jodhpur was rated the #1 Hotel in the world and it lives up to its reputation! First of all, this is actually a functioning Palace for the Royal family of Maharaja Umaid Singh. The royal family still resides in one section of the palace. Another section is a very exclusive Hotel (operated by the TAJ group)...

Near perfect . Great service and gorgeous. We felt like royalty. Our room overlooked magnificent gardens. It was a cold evening as we started dinner outside under heat lamps. It was still too cold. Without hesitation we were transferred to their other restaurant indoors. No request was answered without a yes. This hotel was our palace,really.

One of the largest royal residences in the world, the golden-yellow sandstone Umaid Bhawan Palace is a monument to Jodhpur’s gallantry and romance. Guests get a taste of what it was like to live like kings. From rooms once occupied by the Maharaja. From regal pastimes like polo or croquet. From magnificent views of the palace gardens and the spectacular Mehrangarh Fort. From unique themed dinners that flaunt all the pomp-and-splendour of the desert kingdom. ... more   less
