About Hotel:

Perched high above the desert capital of Jodhpur, Umaid Bhawan Palace is the last of the great palaces of India and one of the largest residences in the world set amidst 26 acres of lush gardens.

Named after Maharaja Umaid Singh, grandfather of the present Maharaja of Jodhpur, this golden-yellow sandstone monument was conceived on the grandest possible scale, in the fashionable Art Deco style of that time. After 15 years in construction, the 347-room palace was finally completed in 1943 and has served as the principal residence of the Jodhpur royal family since.

Designed by renowned Edwardian architect Henry Lanchester, the palace is a blend of eastern and western architectural influences. Its majestic 105-foot high cupola is influenced by the Renaissance, while the towers draw inspiration from Rajput tradition. The lavish interiors with gilt furniture and elegant artwork follow the Art Deco style, complemented by the exotic murals of the self-exiled Polish artist Stefan Norblin.


Accommodation :

A choice of 98 rooms and suites. Each room appointed with the furniture originally created for the Palace. Surpassing the splendour of the other guest rooms are the Maharaja & Maharani Suites originally used by Maharaja Umaid Singh his Maharani. In the foyer leading to these suites is a musical fountain made entirely of English crystal. Some of the old retainers of the royal husehold are still there to serve the needs of present day guests with the gracious hospitality that has always been a unique hallmark of the Palace.

The lovely colonnaded verandah, The Pillars is a perfect seting for a leisurely drink andsnacks, to enjoy the wintery sun during the day or watch it set at dusk. And as twilight falls and peacocks stalk across the back lawns it is time for a drink at the Trophy Bar.

For groups, there are the specially arranged theme parties with the folk music of the desert on the ramparts ofthe Mehrangarh Fort or the 'flaming torch' dinner on the illuminated lawns ofthe Palace, which give you an unforgettable experience.

In winter, theme dinners are often organised in the Dal Badal, a 100 year old intricately designed hunting tent, which is set up in the Palace
