Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace

Umaid Bhawan Palace

Built between 1928 and 1943, Umaid Bhawan Palace is a magnificent piece of Rajasthan’s heritage, and a symbol of new Jodhpur. Home of the erstwhile Jodhpur royal family and currently the world’s sixth-largest private residence, the palace has one thing in common with the iconic Taj Mahal at Agra—the palm court marble used in its construction.   Perched on Chittar Hill, the highest point in Jodhpur, Umaid Bhawan Palace inspires with exotic views of the historical Blue City, vast sand dunes, and intimidating Mehrangarh Fort. The palace is conveniently located 20 minutes from the airport, close to the main shopping areas, and the Balsamand and Kalyana lakes.   The last of the great palaces of India, the property houses a family museum, as well as the resplendent Umaid Bhawan Palace. Set amidst 26 acres of lush gardens, with dancing peacocks and a subterranean Zodiac Pool, the luxury five-star Taj heritage hotel offers 70 utterly breathtaking Art Deco- style rooms and suites.   Tantalise your taste buds at Risala with authentic Rajasthani and Indian cuisine. Discover an array of European and Mediterranean delicacies at Pillars, set in a lovely colonnaded veranda. Unwind at the Trophy Bar with its unique hunting-themed décor and vast selection of alcoholic beverages and cigars.   Pamper yourself with rejuvenating signature treatments and therapies at the Jiva Grande Spa, or soothe your mind and body with yoga and meditation.Take a heritage walk and relive a fascinating bygone era brought to life through majestic monuments.   Soak in the original architecture of a fascinating bygone era and discover the rich history of a palace that has enjoyed actual royal company—Maharani BadanKanwar of Jodhpur having lived here. Stroll through the lush, landscaped Baradari Lawns, perfect for those who have always envisioned a fairy tale wedding.   Come, experience luxury like the royals did.

Our lifetime memories
Staying in Ummed Bhawan palace was like a dream come true... My wife and Kids have enjoyed a lot and it was the best anniversary gift for her.. Amazing hospitality and treating guests like the king were most appealing... Special mention to Mr. Bhupendra Bhati and his team for making our day so much special... Wearing Safa and Chunari with entire family was the most heart touching moment... Great show guys... keep rocking and keep the flag flying on the top.... Cheers..

Estancia inolvidable
El hotel nos encantó, fuimos un grupo de amigos con nuestros hijos y dispusimos de un ala del palacio para nosotros. Las habitaciones súper grandes, nunca había visto algo así. El desayuno maravilloso..... Recomiendo cena privada en la terraza azotea con la puesta del sol. Spa y piscina cubierta increíble. Aunque el hotel pudiera tener algún defecto, fue todo tan agradable y la atención tan personalizada que le daria un 10!
