Be escorted in perfect luxury up the Chittar Hill and prepare to be amazed by the first sight of the Umaid Bhawan Palace, located at the highest point in Jodhpur. Majestic domes and turrets coupled with the panoramic view of the city and softly undulating sand dunes that merge into the distant horizon. With the vast emptiness of the desert on one side and the famed Blue City on the other, the Umaid Bhawan—a living palace, is the enduring legacy of a rich past and a symbol of modern Jodhpur.
Built between 1928 and 1943, the Umaid Bhawan Palace is the world’s sixth largest private residence, and is constructed from the same palm court marble that was used in the construction of the iconic Taj Mahal in Agra. Named after Maharaja Umaid Singh, the palace continues to remain the home of the erstwhile royal family of Jodhpur, and is one of the last remaining great palaces of India.
Set amidst 26 acres of lush greenery, the palace gardens make for beautiful views from the 64 luxury rooms in the palace. The palace also houses a family museum that provides a glimpse of a bygone era when the footsteps of the royal guard echoed in the corridors and the royal elephants trumpeted the arrival of the Maharaja after a successful hunt.
Feast from the exotic variety of authentic Rajasthani cuisine and favourites from International cuisine in any of the three fine-dining restaurants in the hotel. As the sun sets, sip from a glass of your favourite drink by the stunning subterranean zodiac pool and look forward to another day of perfect luxury. Choose from a wide range of signature therapies at the Jiva Spa and return completely rejuvenated.
Come and experience royalty like never before at Umaid Bhawan Palace Hotel.
