Rambagh Palace, Jaipur
Our rating: Luxury | Property style: Hotel
If you want a truly royal experience, there is no better place to stay than the magnificent, five star Rambagh Palace in Jaipur. Originally built in 1835 for the queen's favourite handmaiden, the home was later converted into a royal guesthouse and hunting lodge, before blossoming into a grand palace and the home to the Maharaja of Jaipur. Having remained in the royal family for some generations, the palace has now been converted into one of the leading palace hotels in the world. The 'Jewel of Jaipur', as it is fondly known, still harbours the romantic opulence of a bygone era, and is surrounded by majestic gardens and decorated with marbled corridors that echo the elegance and importance of its history. The rooms are colourfully decorated with rich fabrics and silk drapes, each with their own unique antiques that perfectly complete your royal experience.
