“Beautiful Palace”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We went there for lunch,didn't stay there as we went just for a day and had a train to catch in the evening.
It is a beautiful palace,still inhabited by the royals.Every section speaks for itself.Their hospitality is remarkable.

Approaching this hotel we couldn't believe that this magnificent building was where we would be staying. We were greeted with red carpet, canopy over our heads, rose petals strewn at our feet and drums and trumpets. This was the beginning of two magical days and nights. We had a magnificent suite looking over magnificent gardens to the amazing pool and we were looked after by the staff in a way I had never experienced before in any other hotel. The food and service were exceptional. Words can not describe how fantastic it was. I wish, wish, wish I can go back there one day.

Room Tip: Just go there it is amazing, I don't know if there is a bad room there. Ours a corner room was...

Feeling loke a Maharaja, is the right title of this review as I stayed here for (only) one night, but what a night as it was 2014 New Year's Eve, the party took place in the Jodhpur Castle, we where all given the typical Maharaja hat and were taken by bus to the JodhpurCastle where the Party took place, the party itself was amazing, the only negative point was the cold weather and the unsufficient heating, we were forced to go back to the hotel shortly after midnight to complete new year's Eve celebration indoor ! Despite this I can rate this hotel as the real Maharja experience, upon checking it they welcome you with musicians in Indian outfit playing typical local music, the morning breakfast was the best we had during our Rajasthan tour, we were given two separate rooms as I was with the family with our two children, rooms were impressive with huge bathrooms, the only down was the cool in room temperature, heating device wasn't working properly in both rooms.

Stayed January 2014, travelled with family

My friend and I stayed here in February, 2014 and the service was the BEST we had on the trip as well as other trips in the last year. You are treated like royalty in this palace and feel like a true guest doing absolutely nothing but enjoying the visit. The staff is VERY sensitive to your needs (particularly housekeeping) to even anticipate what is needed before being asked! The employees LOVE the new general manager Mr. Vincent and you can tell by all their smiles. The food is wonderful ~ we were there 4 days and had it was like being in a 5 Star restaurant with all meals. Kudos to the chef and his staff. I would not hesitate to return and would highly recommend this palace as it is not just a visit it is a memory!

Room Tip: The view of the gazebo is lovely (west side) and you can appreciate the gardens and sunsets there as...

There is little I could add to the adulatory reviews I have read of this magnificent palace hotel. No words of praise properly suffice to describe its magnificence - the building designed in the early 20th century to synthesize traditional Rajasthani and European styles on the outside, and as an Art Deco jewel on the inside. I grew up in an Art Deco house, but it was here, studying the interior design of the rooms we stayed in, that I finally understood the style. But as with all Taj properties, however grand or modest, it is the personal touch which makes the stay memorable and the Operations Manager, Deepraj Mukherjee, exemplified the Taj style which attends to one's every need with perfect tact and without servility. It sounds like a well-worn cliche, but the feeling is that one has acquired new family members after a few days here. We have stayed in some of the most famous and comfortable hotels in the world, but I struggle to think of anywhere I have felt so comfortable and so well looked after. It is almost an afterthought to say that we ate superbly here. Bravo, Mr Ramos, for assembling such a great crew. And our thanks to all who made our stay here unforgettable.

Umaid Bhavan Palace is truly a luxury experience at its best. One of the newest original royal palace in India, it is definitely the grandest in its scale and sheer luxury. A step into the Hotel compounds transforms you into an era of unmatched regality and grandeur. The palace hotel lives up to its reputation of being a palace "fit for the king". The rooms are large and very spacious with beautiful art deco interiors. The palace has a lovely bar, indoor and outdoor pool, spa, two restaurants and billiards room. In addition to this it has a rather nice gift shop where they offer some really good collectables. The food is scrumptious and the menu very well appointed. The Trophy bar is quite the toast of the hotel, offering some good liquor and cigars. I strongly recommend that you eat your meals at the Pillars, as the view is breathtaking in the morning and the evenings. Given the heat factor, lunch is best eaten indoors. The history walk is a must, as it help you appreciate the hotel better. The staff is brilliant and extremely helpful. All in all, there is a clear collaboration of the current king and the Taj group in ensuring that each guest relives the bygone royal life during their stay at the hotel. A must stay!

Room Tip: Try and stay in the palace suites. The rooms are very well appointed and quite large.
