Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur


An opulent palace on Jodhpur's highest hill and current home to the city's royal family.

With its magnificent sandstone edifice this elegant hotel is a resplendent landmark right in the heart of Jodhpur. Still home to the Maharaja of Jodhpur, this palatial hotel is an eclectic blend of Edwardian imperialism, Art Deco and cultured Indian flourishes. Take a guided heritage walk around the palace and its grounds and visit the museum to learn about the fascinating history of this royal home.

Luxurious grounds and wonderful garden and city views create a majestic retreat away from the commotion of Jodhpur. Take breakfast on the terrace with views of the imposing Mehrangarh Fort in the distance, or request a secluded dining spot in a private garden for palatial romance. Complete with Taj's renowned service which captures the essence of royal living, you'll feel like the Maharaja's guest with staff who will diligently take note of your preferences for an unparalleled personalised experience. The high-ceilinged rooms and suites offer the extravagance of a palace bedroom with lavish Art Deco style throughout, king-size beds and picturesque views. Palace Rooms and Historical Suites overlook the lawns or courtyard while Royal Suites look over to Mehrangarh Fort.

The Jiva Grande Spa offers an array of treatments to help work the muscles, detoxify, improve sleep and nourish through massages and facials. Try traditional Indian treatments such as the ancient art of Indian cupping (heat in glass cups used as a vacuum on the skin) or an Indian head massage for deep relaxation.
