Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace Jodhpur

Umaid Bhawan Palace

Grand Palace Hotel in Jodhpur

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. This heritage palace hotel in Jodhpur 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, our 5 star hotel in Jodhpur 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 Badan Kanwar 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.

One of the finest hotels in the world with best service and hospitality
Well our stay at Umaid Bhavan Place was nothing short of a Royal Stay. Right from Our check in to our check out we were made to feel like royalty. We remember a few people who made this happen. Mr Abeer who greeted us at the entrance and then gave us a wonderful tour of the palace . Chef Vikram and Staff at the restaurant Mr N.Singh, Mr Swaroop, Mr Chandan, Ms Manisha and Mr Raju took good care of our dietary needs and birthday celebrations. We can never forget the efforts taken by Liftman Mr Dhirendra to show us some unique locations at the hotel and masseuse Ms Eon who made sure that our experience at spa was like never before. Staff at the pool area, chef at the cookie baking class and cocktail making class and peacock feather hunting sessions made sure that my daughter was excited to do each activity. There are a lot of other staff who we did not encounter or forgot the note their names, but we would like to thank each one of them for making our stay a wonder full experience.

The Team at the Palace ensure you feel like Royalty.
From the very entrance you are in awe of the opulence and the magnanimity of the Palace. The lobby probably has one of the highest ceiling of any hotel. Though in no ways would you feel you are staying in a hotel but in a magnificent palace. When you book a stay in Taj you are guaranteed of good hospitality and at Umaid Bhawan it was Taniska Chakrabarty, the lady at the front desk who ensured we have a memorable stay. Would anybody believe that they gave us a room at 8:00 in the morning, a good 6 hours prior to check in time just because we ended up early at the palace. I can't express enough gratitude to her for going out her way to ensure we are comfortable throughout our stay. Every person from the Team at Taj Umaid bhawan were cordial and expressed such delight in welcoming us. When people like Taniska is your host you are sure to be treated beyond your expectation as guests. She assisted to every query and need with genuine eagerness. We shall definitely revisit this beautiful palace hosted by such wonderful people.
