Experience the Grandeur of India's Palaces


Experience grand traditions dating back to the golden era of royalty on an itinerary that leads you on a journey of a lifetime. Stay at awe-inspiring palaces, and immerse yourself in the most authentic royal experiences. Each Grand Palace on this Incredible Palace Journey is a beautiful destination in itself, from the sparkling white marble masterpiece that is the Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur to the inimitable Rambagh Palace, Jaipur and the Art Deco-styled Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur.

Explore the vibrant state of Rajasthan from the windows of our incomparable palaces. Start in Jaipur, the state capital, painted pink for Queen Victoria's visit in 1876. An elegant Amer fort and the beautiful Hawa Mahal are an oasis of calm amidst the frenzied pace. Then it's on to Jodhpur, a short six hour drive from Jaipur. Etched in history for time immortal, Jodhpur is famous for its massively striking Meherangarh Fort, and its spectacular vibrant blue hues. Round off the trip with a four hour drive to Udaipur where the pristine Lake Pichola and the Grand Palace fill your senses with wonder and wow. Experience the living Palaces of Taj, luxury crafted by time.

Rambagh Palace, Jaipur

Home to generations of royalties, Rambagh Palace is one of the most legendary palaces in Jaipur. A Mogul inspired dream, this palace was the former home of Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II, now restored into a luxurious palace hotel. With 45 acres of gardens that stretch off far into the distance, the palace features rooms with architecture that is distinctly regal and service that is impeccably luxurious.

The grand suites are enigmatic to say the least. Take the Sukh Niwas Suite which translates to the ‘Happy Abode Suite’, and you will enter a realm of royal history. Lush drapes and fabrics, arched stonework, gold-leaf frescoes, crystal chandeliers and ornate furniture, preserve the charm of a bygone era. Tying modernity to a traditional set up, the suite features a large sitting area, an intimate dining space, and a four-fixture bathroom with a jacuzzi. The guest rooms are set in the main building, noted for its Mughal-style onion-shaped domes and sculpted archways with views of the courtyard or vast gardens and the graceful peacocks.

Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur

For absolute palatial opulence, visit the blue city of Jodhpur with its sheer majesty against the Mehrangarh fort, assuring you an escape into royal legacy. A stay at Umaid Bhawan will give you a taste of Jodhpur’s gilded glory as it is home of the royal family. A golden sandstone palace on the top of Chittar Hill, the royal welcome, the Art Deco design and peacocks strutting on the lawn, encapsulate an extraordinary experience. Marvel at the palm court marble, an astonishing commonality with the iconic Taj Mahal at Agra. Still partly home to the current Maharaja of Jodhpur, the hotel boasts of rooms across 26 acres of lush gardens. Mirror-finished terrazzo, metallic accents, and bold geometric light fittings reflect royalty in every nook and corner. Feast on aromatic smoked lamb kebab and spicy green-lentil dal at Risala or start your day with breakfast on the peristyle veranda watching the dancing peacocks in the gardens. Every experience here is a memory to cherish forever.

Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur

Built in 1746 and gracefully sitting at the heart of Lake Pichola, Taj Lake Palace is a vison in white of courtyards, corridors, and pavilions inlaid with stone, gilt molding, and mirrors. With stunning views of the City Palace, Aravalli Hills and Machla Magra Hills waiting for all. A testament to the past, you reach the four-acre man-made island via a private boat, escorted to rooms adorned with hand-painted motifs, mosaics, silk bolsters, swings, chandeliers, stained glass and artisan-crafted dark-wood furniture. There are plenty more memorable experiences crafted for your stay. Join a sunset cruise and watch the skies transform into breathtaking hues or enjoy traditional Indian dancing in the palace courtyard while you admire the beauty of the lily pond.

Each authentic Grand Palace is steeped in history. Explore three of them in one incredible journey and create memories for a lifetime.
