We attended a destination marriage function and stayed three nights. The imposing structure of the Palace takes you in your dreams of fantasies. As you enter the main gate some 7 or 8 antique cars (including 3 Royce Royces) in the Maharaja's garage lets you know where you have come. The modern Jag XJ and a Merc S Class parked... More

This is the most stunning palace hotel. The rooms are massive with every small accessory given, even a bottle of scotch and vodka on the house.

The Umaid Bhawan is one of the best palaces in the entire country. This palace boasts of luxury and royal indulgence. The king also has a wide array of his personal vintage cars that are on display for the public.

This place really feels like you entered a palace. It's nothing short of extraordinary! There are not a lot of places where you can go and feel like royalty but this is definitely one of them. We had such a wonderful time here! Taj took care of all our needs during our stay!

When you arrive, the first thing that hits you is the sheer scale - Umaid Bhawan is one of the largest residential palaces in the world after Buckingham Palace. Having recovered from that, the next thing is the splendour of the Lobby and downstairs generally, running out of superlatives and continually repeating oneself 'Incredible', 'Amazing', 'Wonderful', 'Beautiful', etc, etc then,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
