History In Stone
Lying in the protective embrace of the Aravali range of mountains, Jodhpur city in Rajasthan is home to several legendary Kings and the monuments and forts that they left in their wake. Apart from these, the city also homes a number of superior hotels that make you travel back in time. Umaid Bhawan Palace is a stellar example. Home to the erstwhile royal family of Jodhpur, the hotel offers vestiges of royal living. The hotel also houses a museum of personal memorabilia of the family.
Umaid Bhawan Palace is perched on the Chittar Hill with the old city, awashed in blue, sprawled all around it. It also offers an excellent view of the imposing Mehrangarh Fort.
But it’s the royal rooms and suites that make a traveller feel like real royalty. Infused with the ‘Taj’ brand, the Art Deco style rooms are breathtaking and equipped with superior amenities and facilities. Umaid Bhawan’s cuisine is one of the biggest highlights of the stay. One can choose from Indian and Rajasthani cuisine at Risala, or European food at Pillars and the finest drinks at Trophy Bar.
The Jiva Grande Spa is a standout feature of the hotel and is fully equipped for soothing rejuvenating treatments. The hotel concierge is also helpful to plan an immersive trip to the city.
