Umaid Bhawan Palace Review

You can live like (and with) royalty at this magnificent palace—one of Rajasthan's grandest hotels—which has featured in many movies and hosted at least one international celebrity wedding. Still home to the titular Maharaja of Jodhpur and his family, it has a massive, domed lobby and lavish public rooms filled with objets d'art. Many of the rooms, though not opulent, are in art-deco style, with large luxurious bathrooms. There's a beautiful, astrology-themed subterranean pool, though sunbathers will prefer the one in the garden.

    Umaid Bhawan Palace Review

    I had the most wonderful time at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace hotel in Jodhpur. It's not cheap but I found that if I ordered just a main meal at dinner, they'd bring starters and desserts all compliments of the chef. So it made it very worthwhile! I've just reviewed the trip as I'm a Luxury Travel Writer. This is the link with some of my photography... http://ani-shah.com/2012/07/12/playing-princess-at-jodhpurs-royal-palace-surreal-luxury/
