We changed the dates of our visit to Rajasthan in order that we could stay at the Samode Palace and we were very glad that we did.It was the perfect place to stay at the end of our amazing trip.
We really appreciated the wonderful setting and the beauty of the hotel . On arrival a member of staff gave us a guided tour of the palace and explained some of its history. It was easy to see and understand how proud the staff are of their hotel. It is also good to know that most of the staff are local .We felt very special as we were given the honeymoon suite on the top floor and from the balcony had views through the valley and over the village.
We enjoyed some delicious vegetarian dinners and breakfasts and special requests were readily catered for.
Wandering around the village was special, we did not feel pressurised to buy ,as often can be the case, but enjoyed chatting to locals, watching the craftsmen at work and being made to feel welcome.
We succumbed to a camel ride in order to visit Samode Bagh...the hunting Lodge three kilometres away,tented luxury but our preference was the Palace.
Our travel agent was right: a very special place and well worth the visit.More
